"This is the longest I've ever owned a car and it has been nothing but reliable. Strong ladder truck frame makes it durable, yet it has a very smooth ride. Not great on gas, but I guess you can't have it all."
"I prefer kia vehicles over most other brands...I have had very minor issuse with the 3 that I have owned...I purchased all 3 vehicles used and with high milage..the only repairs I have had to do on my kia sorento is replace U-joints in the drive shaft and battery..the other 2 were radiator on one and clutch plate on the other...they are very reliable and durable.."

"I bought this car off the show room floor. I only had the cassette player installed extra. It has been the most reliable car I have ever owned. No recalls and nothing major to fix. I love my Kia and if I ever did trade it in it would be for another one!!"
"The Sorento EX offered most buttons and whistels for the money. Paying cash, I found best buy researching fair price and then approaching fleet dealer for best deal.
This driver found all makes and models of SUVs test driven handled poorly. But Kia did not display the drawback of high balance center so obvious in others.
Airbag function (as indicated by dash light) took several trips back to dealer, and one to a neighboring state, before Kia issued a recall.
Beyond that, independant mechanic i.e. not dealership, replaced AC compressor and one window motor in door. A few minor electrical issues at first. And I replaced struts on rear hatch door once in the 10 years of ownership.
Kia was new manufacturer at time of purchase. I was pleased that make has established reasonably good reputation.
I would buy another Kia."
