    Yeah, you're not missing much as far as the third row goes. It's really only for little kids. Our oldest usually rides back there and finds it easier to just crawl through the hatch rather than try to figure out how to move the goofy second row seat out of the way.

    A minivan makes a much better people mover if you have more than 2 kids imo. Sliding doors are nice in parking lots, driveways garages etc...., more so if they're power. I think all vans have had 4 doors since 2001? My 03 Carajunk had 2 sliders...

    When the wife and I looked at the Kia, we test drove a 19' that they had on the lot, it had all the options the wife wanted. She ended up wanting a 2020 instead because newer...Turned out Kia dinks around with trim levels as much as Mitsubishi does. They removed some sync system/remote start thing for 20' but added power lift gate(iirc) and some stupid giant glass roof that I really didn't want. The dealer ended up isntalling an aftermarket remote start and the wife was happy.

    Until the sunroof shattered while on the highway. That's why I didn't want a sunroof lol. Thankfully the wife was able to get it replaced under warranty. Now there's a roll of duct-tape in that vehicle at all times...

    The Kia also has a valve cover that's sweating. No drips yet, it'll probably wait til it's out of warranty until it starts puking. It's only got 20k kms on it now...
    I too think you made the better choice with the Honda.

    This is a great idea! I only wish I still had pictures of all my old cars. Back in the day it was importat for some reason to have pictures of them. It will take me a bit to try recalling them all.

    I like your 16" rims & wheels. I am not a big fan of large rims/low profile tires, especially on a SUV. My Forester has 215/65r16 tires (factory size for base model).

    It drives so much better with the 16” rims. Steering feels better also. Road manners are way better with dramatically improved driving over irregular pavement. No more skipping around or spooky wet weather performance. Since my OS/RVR/ASX only weighs 3050 lbs /1380 kg it feels way more stable with 16” rims over the 18” OEM’s if that makes any sense.
