    Congrats on addition to family Pryme.
    Hate you had to let go of the Mirages. You and Mark were influential in my purchase of my 2019 Mirage.
    I periodically rewatch your videos, the 3 part and the 10k update.
    Was hoping to follow your useage/ experience history with your two cars.
    Blessings to your family!

    Good looking van, the interior looks like other KIAs I have seen, seems like logical layout. Your van has a lot more space for the family. I wouldn't mind a van over a truck for hauling stuff and tools/equipment, since then everything is covered from the elements.

    Glad the videos helped. They will remain up of course. I could see myself in a used one down the road if needed.

    I think a minivan is the ultimate vehicle. Comfort, quiet, hauls a ton of stuff, decent mileage for what it is and good power(this van has 276hp)

    Vans are very practical. Nice to drive on the highway, a ton of room inside, the hauling options.. whether people, music gear, tools for your business, whatever.

    I've done lots of great hauling in my Mirage, but it's way more of a breeze in a van.

    You should get a pop up trailer!

    Congrats on the addition to the family and the garage! If we had more than the three of us in my family then I'd probably have gotten a van as well (and likely the Sedona). Good thing is that Kia has come a long way since their early days in the US. My wife had 2 Sephias when they first came out. Both were lemon law vehicles and we finally switched to a Mazda but a new Kia sedan is on the list to replace her current Ford Fusion unless I can convince her to get an Outlander Sport (the Mirage is too small). I have two family members that bought a new Sportage and Telluride in the past year and they love them.

    I really wanted to keep mine but the only time I'd be able to use it is to work and back and my new job is 6mi from home. Just didnt make sense.

    This is a good forum so I will stop in still if I can.

    We traded them for a brand that seems to be liked here though.
    I see both of your 2017 Mirage SE manuals posted on cars.com now.

    If I needed to replace my Mirage, I would focus on low mileage used 2017+ manuals.

    Mini vans beat SUVS in every factor but aesthetics. If Mitsubishi sold the Delica with AWD here it would sell I believe. I could see alot of contractor types getting one.

    Yeah it's weird they put bridgestones on the black one and enasaves on the wine red.

    Yeah this minivan is so much better than an suv for doing what most ppl do with an suv. Drive on the road transporting kids and groceries etc.
