We have our third child coming in November and we've been on a hunt for the right minivan or third row SUV, but have almost exclusively been looking at Kia due to warranty, price, and styling. We test drove a CPO Sorento and intended to buy it. Price wasn't right and dealership didn't take our offer, so we left. Thankfully that night we reflected on the cargo space and knew it wouldn't be big enough for our family.

We were gathering up our kids to leave the house to head to a different dealership to place an order on a Telluride (knowing the baby could potentially arrive before the car did and cause some difficulties. We also heard Telluride wait times were less than Carnivals, which was part of that decision). Then, moments before walking out the door, the salesperson from the other dealership messaged and said a Carnival LXS had just become available. We drove there twenty minutes later and put down the deposit. We should pick it up by the end of the month.

Thankful to have snagged a Carnival and one within our price point! Comes with the trailer hitch, which will be nice for bikes in the future. I wish it was a different color (it will be Silky Silver), but I can't complain!

Looking forward to joining these discussions.

May I how much was the markup? I am also looking for xls and seeing 5k markups.
I actually got it at MSRP. Whoever had placed the initial order included some add-ons that totaled around an additional $1,100, but no markup.

Another dealer locally is selling the same LXS model as a CPO with 10k miles for around 42k, which is crazy to me.
