    You beat me to it, I was about to say the Q5 isn't even in the same ballpark. How can you go from a Q5 to a Soul even though the Soul is Fantastic.

    Working to swap our older soul for a hybrid. I haven't been to the dealer other than to test-drive, but have spent A LOT of time already online trying to figure out a reasonable price. I'm not looking to make a killing, but don't want to leave money on the table unnecessarily. That being said, I would not turn down or even haggle an offer of half-price for a new vehicle.

    A lot of us dropped higher end cars like bmw, infinity and lexus and ran for the Optima. I had an Acura prior, but it didn't have all the creature comforts. if you are not a show off type, kia will do fine. besides, he can take A8 when going out.

    That's basically where we are. My wife and I are approaching retirement and we had recently purchased a winter home so the last thing we wanted to do was drop a ton of scratch on a car - especially since we have an A8. . But in reality, the Soul isn't a huge compromise. Remember, this is a fully decked out Exclaim. If the price were close I'd be in the Q5 (well, maybe, back seat room is an issue with that car), but at $20k less, the Soul won!

    Well said engage. I think you've hit on a big part of the Kia/Hyundai formula for success. Bringing a cost reality check to runaway vehicle pricing and an options obsessed consumer.

    K/H have found a way to mitigate both needs without charging mile high prices.

    Strict dealership time to handle paperwork: about 2 hours. Spent about a day with the wife test driving different crossover type vehicles before settling on the Soul, which was what she had wanted originally. After that, quite a bit of time spent negotiating between 3 dealers trying to get competing offers before finally settling on one. Didn't have anything worthwhile to trade in, so I listed my wife's car for sale and sold it for my bottom dollar price within a few days. Dropped her car off to the new owner then went straight to the dealer and was on our way home with the Soul in just a couple of hours.
