      can you still smell the burnt flesh of the homeless that burned in the fire? JAS might want to come up for a snack.

      Love it! And yes I have to imagine the insulation with pure brick is not going to be great. I will be in Chicago in a couple weeks to hang out with my good friend so that will be a fun time. Pretty quick drive too!

      I used to have an exposed brick apartment when I lived in Bucktown. Moved in the month of July, thought it was so cool.

      Then winter hit, and paid through the @$$ to keep the damn place at 60F.

      are your bricks real?

      Larger than average compared to newer construction. Our 1977-built house could house a 1966 long-bed pickup in it with ~4' in front. My garage now? 19' 6" deep, 19' 3" wide. At least it's 10' 3" tall inside.

      The only ground the Telluride leaves for the Highlander is in official EPA fuel economy estimates. The Highlander is rated at 20/27/23 mpg city/highway/combined, whereas the Telluride nets 19/24/21 mpg. But as the saying goes, "Your mileage may vary." On our 135-mile evaluation loop, the Kia returned 19.7 mpg; the Toyota scored 18.1 mpg. You can credit the difference to the Kia's superior engine and transmission tuning.
      The winds they are a changing. I know TCL still clings to the adage that the Koreans are a cheap car made cheaply, but that was really only the case twenty some years ago. The winds have shifted. I'd consider a Kia/Hyundai over a japanese marque for reliability, content, and price these days.

      If you're scared, say you're scared

      FWIW- which IMO is a lot- the Telluride is CR's highest rated midsize SUV by a wide margin. This is not a fluke.

      Scared? Of what? I don’t work for an automaker. I’m just and ordinary guy who thinks H/K are overhyped and am sick of paid shills cramming them down our throats.

      I think its a very nice looking car from the outside, I have seen a few on the road. I have to say I think the "boxy style" SUV is making a comeback and people aren't interested in the more "van" design of like the Highlander, Ascent, Pilot, etc. (these still sell though obviously)

      I don't think its a surprise either since "overlanding" seems to be the big thing, and I think the more boxy design style fits what people want to see.

      A bit off topic but I do have to say...did Nissan make a big mistake getting rid of the Xterra? Seems like the market is back for those type of vehicles.

      Nobody is buying a Telluride to go overlanding. This has about as much in common with an Xterra as the Pathfinder. It's a minivan with hinged rear doors, which is fine as that's what families want.

      Ehhh I think your statement is way too absolute. Never deal in absolutes. People go overlanding in Vans, CUVs, etc. It's not off-roading or rock crawling. It's basically road tripping and car camping. And even if you don't go overlanding, people like the concept of it, and I think that's also why the boxy style is catching on again whether the vehicle is off-road capable, or not.

      That's why I said the Xterra comment is way off topic.

      I've had the chance to drive and spend a decent amount of time with the Telluride and the Palisade. I'm in this market right at the moment.

      The Palisade in SEL trim with every option would be my first choice. It's the only way to get a second row bench seat which I prefer over the captains chairs, which come on the limiteds, for child seats. I'd sign on one of those tomorrow but damn if they don't lease well. I know they are new and have 0 incentives going but the lease prices are about $160 dollars high a month right now. IMO

      Palisade SEL AWD $43,xxx MSRP with all fees.

      36 month term, 12k miles a year only first, plates and taxes out of pocket ..............$686 a month.


      2020 Highlander Limited, optioned out with the 12.3" touchscreen and second row bench

      $48,xxx MSRP same terms as above is around $550 a month I'm still working on finding one how I want it and I think I have a little bit of room in that payment. I'd like to get the Highlander closer to $520 a month.

      I know Kia/Hyundai doesn't care right now because they are moving these things, but the residual values are still an issue for these two brands when it comes to leasing.

      Just out of curiousity do you remember what the residual was on the vehicles? I know my Outback was 62% for my lease.

It's basically road tripping and car camping. And even if you don't go overlanding, people like the concept of it, and I think that's also why the boxy style is catching on again whether the vehicle is off-road capable, or not.
      It's taken a long time to gain traction in the "adventure" world, considering that's what the Telluride was marketed as. Spending last year in Glacier NP, Yellowstone, Big Horns, and Jackson, WY, I'll tell you that we saw 2 Tellurides.

      The Palisade in SEL trim with every option would be my first choice. It's the only way to get a second row bench seat which I prefer over the captains chairs, which come on the limiteds, for child seats. I'd sign on one of those tomorrow but damn if they don't lease well. I know they are new and have 0 incentives going but the lease prices are about $160 dollars high a month right now. IMO

      Palisade SEL AWD $43,xxx MSRP with all fees.

      36 month term, 12k miles a year only first, plates and taxes out of pocket ..............$686 a month.


      2020 Highlander Limited, optioned out with the 12.3" touchscreen and second row bench

      $48,xxx MSRP same terms as above is around $550 a month I'm still working on finding one how I want it and I think I have a little bit of room in that payment. I'd like to get the Highlander closer to $520 a month.

      I know Kia/Hyundai doesn't care right now because they are moving these things, but the residual values are still an issue for these two brands when it comes to leasing.
      Market still sees K/H as cheap vehicles. Which is why I have a problem with the current MSRP of both. But K/H are keeping production low to keep demand high.

      I'd still like to get a Telluride, but I must say I prefer the Palisade's interior.

      One thing I have noticed is that the Telluride's body makes it look like it's squatting in the back.
