We actually looked at the Envoy first. I wanted to buy American, but the salesman was a complete jackarse. I am actually glad he was. We traded in her 2000 Mustang (only had 34k miles too) and all I wanted for trade was 8k for it. Chevy offered us 8k, but was screwing us over. Long story short, they were trying to slip in 3k somewhere to the price of the truck and we wouldnt fall for it. We were willing to pay up to 300 a month, but he was trying for like 350 a month. We eventually left. So, a couple of weeks later, we checked Kia and loved them. We got it fully loaded, minus AWD for only 250 a month after trade in. got 8.5k for trade at Kia.
Oh, has one of the best stock stereos i have ever heard. Plus, plays MP3's. I enjoy driving it, but only when I have to. I really hate being away from my truck =)
