doesn't it come with carpet mats included? Usually "all weather" mats are an extra.

Either way, toss that carpet shit out the day you buy it and replace with the 3d mats.
:rofl: nope it's such a low end nickle and dime show at Kia ... carpeted mats are extra, and I had to add three "extras" to put the pre order in. even though I put a deposit down on the top end model with two packages (nightfall and prestige) packages don't count as "extras" in the Kia world, so I chose carpeted floor mats, an all weather trunk mat thing, one something else stupid

@amill94 - We traded in the Volvo XC90 for an Audi E Tron. No regrets so far. Ride is much quieter and smoother than the XC90 and not having to fill up at the pump has been fun.

General comment - Whoever said that the Kia Telluride is better looking than a Volvo or Audi - I will respectfully disagree. With all due respect, you are smoking crack.

Love it!

IIRC, that was @smell my finger and he also mentioned the VW was boring and the Subaru was bland if not ugly. Or maybe the other way around.

By the way, did you manage to snag a lease deal on the etron through Costco? We considered going etron, but they were gone and we needed a car back in June. Now 6 months in, over 3,500 miles, I love the shit out of our little Baymax. :rofl:

the etron look pretty good, those wheels are hideous. I think the telluride looks much better than the q7, which is getting long in the tooth. I like the exterior styling of the XC90 well enough, but not as much as the telluride

I waffled between purchasing and leasing and ultimately decided to purchase for the tax rebate since we will owe quite a bit for this year. The value of this car will likely drop a lot when Audi releases the higher range E Tron in 2022-23 - but that will give me an excuse to swap it out and get another rebate.

I found out that Texas is doing $2500 cash rebates if you purchase or do a 3-year lease for an EV. I’ll PM you the details.

Looks nice. I might be tempted to go this route if my POS TRX comes in that I ordered. Then we won't need the cargo capacity of the XC90 and something smaller like this would work. Audi has been killing it with their EV offerings.

If you can wait maybe 12-18 months, the mid-cycle refresh for the E Tron is coming and range will increase from 220 to 340+ miles.

I thought I would miss the 3rd row / extra cargo space from the XC90, but it’s been an after thought since we switched.

We are in no rush tbh. Her XC90 has been fine so far. Especially with the state of the car industry we aren't even considering replacing it right now. That refresh range bump seems worth the wait though.
