Perfect car for our needs
We needed a mid-size SUV to replace an Excursion, which could seat at least six people and be able to tow a pontoon. The current limited availability of vehicles greatly affected our shopping experience. Most research was done online, for features, price and availability. We actually ordered the Grand Cherokee, which took several months to come in. In the meantime, I found the Kia Telluride and the Hyundai Palisade, which were both priced much better than the Jeep. Then it was a matter of color. Since we were buying, not leasing, this car and keeping for years, I wanted to like the color, which meant no black interior or exterior and ideally red. We found the Palisade, 200 miles from home. We had previously owned a Genesis and Santa Fe and were very happy with Hyundai. We bought it online, flew up to pick it up and drove it home. I would recommend looking at the color at a local dealer, if possible. This was much darker than I expected or than the photos, almost looks black at times, but I probably would have taken it anyway. It's wonderful to drive, great for road trips. It has a beautiful, light interior. Keep the Mr. Clean eraser handy.
