I bought my kia in august of 09. I was debating between this and the pilot. I have been very happy with it this entire year and have not had a single problem. I get about 17/18 mpg, which is pretty good considering the size of the SUV. Great 3rd row with plenty of leg room for kids, a little tight for adults though. I also added running boards and a nav system for much cheaper than if you buy the limited version that comes with one.
parking assist, lights on the side mirrors, HUGE trunk space, especially if third row folded, ipod input, hill assist (makes sure that when I'm on a hill at a red light with my foot on the break, when I take my foot off the break I don't roll back at all for a few seconds.)blue tooth, great interior
