in the next couple months. Would that be a terrible idear just because they are hard to find? Are vehicles like houses now? Priced sky high and you gotta beat everyone else to it?

Greenr may have the need (and desire) to upgrade a vehicle soon and was wondering what you upstanding gentlemen, who know practically everything, know about the current car industry.

We had to shop a bit but ended up finding a decent deal. It didn't really matter what kind of deal i found though, it's what she wanted and it's what she was going to end up with.

She only puts about 4000 miles on her car yearly now since we moved closer to where she works and i have a company truck that includes free fuel. So we end up taking my truck most places.

The plan was to by used with high-ish miles then when it comes time to sell or trade in 5 years or so, it will be a low-ish mile vehicle for the year.

They aren't super reliable.

They are outrageously expensive in general. Not due to workmanship or reliability or anything like that, it's simply because of the demand. And I think that demand is driven by people that just like the look of them. They are even more outrageously expensiver right now, because LES GO BRANDON prolly lol.

They ain't exactly high quality neither.

Don't buy one. Not now, and not ever. If you decide to look past this excellent advice and buy one anyways, I'd wait a real long time.

charts. I've saved every Consumer Reports automobile issue since the early 90s and I've never seen a vehicle ranked like that one has been since it became available to the general public. There are a lot of historically great Honda and Toyota models over the years, but Telluride's press all along has been insanely positive and surpassed anything I've seen before, especially for a completely new model. Even JD Power (which is typically a little more conservative in overall rankings) says it's a great vehicle.


Of course, finding one on a lot seems to be the real challenge with the Telluride.

I had a Sonata for about 5 years that I absolutely loved until it was totaled by a hail storm, of all things. To answer your question though...yes, Kia has definitely turned the corner and is producing a vastly superior product when compared to their early entries into the US market. The Telluride in particular has so far lived up to the hype over its three years of existence.

I'd buy one 3 yrs old with about $50k miles. It'll get you through the phase where you need that kind of room. I know it seems like you are trapped with them 11 youngins for ever, but trust me once the oldest hits 13 or so the concept of packing all of 'em in a car goes away. Vacation is the exception but F letting vacation force you into a yuge car.

I have a suburban and LOVED it during the time it was needed. Should have gone the Odyssey route for a 2nd time but TRDJuanita was all like NAW I DON'T WANT ANOTHER MINIVAN so we got the Suburban and she drove it for like a year and got another car.
