Pros: "Great vehicle"

Cons: "Could get better gas mileage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Prior to owning this SUV I had never kept a car longer than 1-3 years. Also until this car I went through every series of BMW's and MBZ's with the exception of the MB SL sports car and the C series. I only bought new cars and they were all German. I bought this vehicle when I decided to retire young and needed it for my kids and their soccer playing. This car has had no problems that I can remember. I replace the oil and filters regularly and have the car aligned regularly, the wheels balanced and I only run Synthetic Oil in it. I have never burned any oil in this car. The gas mileage could be better but the car is faster than I would have expected. If you take care of this car it will take care of you."

"I bought my Sorrento 4x4 LX. New, and now have 103,000 trouble free miles on it . In 9yrs I have changed the timing belt,and a sensor, and that is the only repairs besides routine maintenance that the vehicle has needed.What more can you ask of a vehicle ?"

"I have been really happy with the overall quality of this car; drives great up in the Sierras,good power when needed,if any downside would be the 15 mpg in city. I think these KIA's are under rated."

"I thought when I went into the sport utility range of cars, that they would be very "tippy" as far as handling and driveability was concerned - was I wrong! thi is undoubtedly the best suv ive ever had, and with the time to replace it coming in the future, I am most likely to stay with this size and class of vehicle - it just suits our lifestyles just fine !!!"

"Bought this car new and have loved every second of my 10+ years of ownership. Reliable and dependable beyond expectations. Creature comforts and thoughtful amenities afforded for the price are exceptional. Definitely ahead of it's time in it's body styling. I am reluctantly parting ways now only because of a recent accident, after which my insurance company has declared it totaled. I AM HEARTBROKEN!!"
