    Minivan vs 3 row SUV - why are minivans looked down upon?

    Kia Carnival Kia has done the half and half route with the Carnival - half SUV/half minivan.
  2. Got an offer for $4000 usd including the winter tyres. Originally listed for $4700. the potential buyer brought her mechanic along who listed that a ball bearing had to be replaced, sensor has to be replaced and the front brakes had to be fixed and he would do the fixing- he estimated 4-5 hours of his time. while I’m sure going through a shop would be more expensive- I don’t think all that work would cost $600. especially considering I am throwing in snows.

    Will minivans ever make a comeback?

    They have those - it's called a minivan

    I think non-removable 2nd row seats in minivans are becoming a thing due to increasing safety standards or so I've read. I think the Kia Sedona has the same thing.

    It's not about looking cool, it's about making sure you don't look uncool. There is a difference. Fanny fans are useful but no one wears them.

    How many people actually take their SUVs off-road these days? And off-road means more of a muddy road or a gravel road or even a farmer's field.

    Thinking of buying an 2020 Edge - help?

    Well, owned it 4 months and got my first recall letter - something to do with the rear camera potentially not working?
  9. It seems weird to me that people look down on minivans because they are not “cool”. The 90s/00s soccer mom image has unfairly stayed with the minivan which in my opinion is the ultimate people carrier (or at least a 3rd row that can fit actual adults). The only advantage I see to an SUV is looks, higher driving position and towing. For example, although I like my Edge, I can’t see myself getting an Explorer or an Expedition over something like a Sienna. Thoughts?

    2022 Honda Civic revealed in patent images

    They copied the Mazda 3's interior pretty well...
  11. The car (2012 base SE) has about 75,000 miles on it and a few minor bumps and superficial marks. I am struggling of a way to word the description so the transmission issue does not scare away any buyers. We’ve taken the car in multiple times and always fixed under warranty but it’s not fixed. It drives okay, you can just feel a little hesitation in the transmission when accelerating and a little high pitched whine at high speeds. Any advice? Also how much do you think I could get for it? Less mileage but an older car. I am thinking about $3,800.

    So we've had the Edge SEL for 3 months and we love it. Great: -Smooth ride. -Comfy inside (ActiveX). -Kick tailgate (Convenience package). -Holds lots of stuff. Not so great: -The hood feels like it's going to fly off (yes I have shut it properly). -SiriusXM is not great (a lot of the channels blend together). -Headlights are not very good at night (SEL trim) -Audio system is just meh, nothing special.
  13. It's really a discussion of rights. Yes, you have the right to do what you want. But everyone/society has a right to be healthy and be protected against preventable diseases. So which one is more important than the other?

    So our preferred dealer matched the lower price but we were thinking of asking for some extras included. Would snow tires be too greedy? Or should we stick to the full tank/mad flaps/etc?

    Trade-in - but its minimal - $500 vs $1,500 with the $1,500 at the cheaper place. Dealer discount is about the same.
