Well actually test drove it yesterday and made a deal but went back to do the paper work today.  It wasn't the best time for us but we had to trade ours now because it just came off warranty and we didn't want to wait until the price went down and the mileage goes up. 

We will need a 4x4 where we are moving to in the land of the ice and snow so we bought a 2013 Kia Sorento SUV.  The colour is a deep ocean blue pearl.  It is almost a navy.  It comes fully loaded and a 5 year warranty.

We pick it up on Monday at 2.  This dealership is new in town and the people were just wonderful.  We didn't feel any pressure at all and everyone was so friendly and nice.  They also gave us a good deal.  The Sorentos are made in Georgia so we like that it is made in North America.

I couldn't find a picture of it in the blue but here is what it looks like.

That's really a pretty SUV.  Yes you are going to need 4WD where you are moving since you will be getting more snow.  I bet you can't wait to get it on Monday.  That's really good to have a 5 year warranty too.

The past two years our snowplough driver that we hired for there said there wasn't any snow business.  We figure since they got snow this year and we are moving there that it will probably go back to having tons of it.  LOL

Yes the 5 year warranty is on everything so that sort of helped make the decision.

The colour looks better for real than what's on the internet sample.

We've never had a blue vehicle before.  I was thinking I want to blue in our new house too as with our green walls here I never had much blue.
