Mine is onward of 13+ years, and almost 150K. I don't foresee it making it to 1M but one never knows!

Right now it needs: Tires, CV boots, oil pan gasket, T-belt and a thorough cleaning inside and out!

So I am back in a Hyundai!

Bought my wife a 2018 Santa Fe Ultimate Limited with all the bells and whistles.
It was a used vehicle, but only 9 months old and 10,000 miles on it. Got it for about $10,000 less than new.
Loving this thing, and the wife does too.

Pic of it at the dealer the day we picked it up:

Got tires, but all the rest of that still needs to be done :-/

Currently looking at the Sorento for the wife to replace the GT which my oldest will then take over.

Is it soon yet??

Mom just bought a 2018 Kia Soul+ to replace her Saturn. She is really liking it, and she bought an Inferno Red one. Really sticks out.
It is 10 months old and has 23,000 miles on it, drive like new. She got it as a CPO so has the full 10/100 warranty with it.

If Hyundai would ever come out with a real truck in the US, I would get that for myself.
I am slowly working all my family into Hyundai/Kia (3 Santa Fe's, 1 Soul, 1 Sonata, 1 Rio).
Step mother in law is looking for a replacement for her 1998 Lincoln Town Car, trying to get her to look at Genesis.
My mother in law was looking at the Kona, but ended up with a Chevy Trax (blech thumbsdown.gif ).

Here's the only pic I have at present ;-)

We just took it up to Yosemite and Mammoth and it did great, hauled the Thule and a full load. The biggest problem I have with this vehicle is keeping it at the posted limit, it really wants to go well over! I was flying up Hwy 99 doing 75 -80 and on the way back down 395/I-15 - no problems biggrin.gif

I washed the GT yesterday, it really needed it. It still needs the other things, but it still fires up and drives. Some jackass tossed a cigarette butt onto the windshield and I see a could more dings and scrapes but I still love the little car, so much easier to wash than the other 2 pigs. I really wanted to get the new Mazda 3 hatch, but 2 car payments were just not in the cards.
