    Hey everyone, two quick corrections. First, and perhaps MOST importantly, Thomas meant Ed, not Eddy. Also, the 10-year warranty we reference is US only. In Canada, its a 5 year. Sad face. Have a great day!

      @Mat I got 10 years bumper to bumper here in Canada although , yes, it was an additional cost. They advertise these longer than the average warranties but what they don't tell you is that the original warranty only has three years on the infotainment system for example. Purchasing the extended warranty for my Telluride ensured everything on the vehicle is covered for 10 years except wear and tear items.

      @James Engelsman no this isn't the top trim for Telluride. The top trim has the nicer headliner and nappa leather seats.

    How can you make it so the DRLs operate in "white" instead of "orange"? I've seen several around the way and it seems like it can be changed. Perhaps in the light settings or something??

    The same applies to the Sonata and the K5. The Sonata is more luxurious while as the K5 looks better in terms of sportiness. The daytime running light of the Sonata that blends into the chrome is truly amazing.

    I like both of these. I guess for me it would come down to not the looks because I like both, but what mood I'm in. I prefer the top of the line non-nightfall Telluride with the bright interior it's more tasteful.

    Looks amazing but totally worthless as an AWD or 4x4. This doesn't even have 4 low gearing...or downhill decent assist so you are dead coming down a steep hill on ice and snow... so don't think about driving this to ski resort in a real storm. Believe me I live on a mountain peak and 4 low has saved my life endless times. At least the palisade, pathfinder, forerunner, Taureg, etc. have either low gearing or downhill decent assist control. But most people see AWD and think they are good to go... but they are clueless. This is a beautiful vehicle though if you are just looking for a city street SUV that looks cool and runs well...

    My family and I (M42, F43, B9, G9) test drove two different Tellurides, one SX Nightsky and one SX. We also test drove 2 Hyundai Palisade Ultimate Calligraphy editions. We loved the look of both, we loved how the engine picked up in both, but the ride in both was what set us off. We drove the same route with these vehicles and 3 other make/models and by the end of the test drive the Telluride and Palisade both left 3 out of the 4 of us in the family feeling physically ill due to vibration from the road. We additionally test drove a single Santa Fe and did not feel ill from that test drive.
