"It has been a great dependable car for my wife and me. There have been several minor recalls that were quickly taken care of by Kia. We checked out a number of similar makes and models when we were looking for a new car and the Kia Sorento provided everything we wanted and at the best price!"

I love this SUV!

"I bought this SUV new and have driven it almost every day. As a hockey mom, we cover a lot of territory in cold weather. With family in Tucson, we spend some time in the heat. One scary trip followed some incomplete drive train work in Santa Fe, but the dealership in Tucson got us on the road again. No unexpected repairs. I am looking to buy a new one someday. Still loving this one!"

"Two tone Exterior EX Sorento SUV 3.8L engine V6, tires good condition, mag wheels, AC, Power Windows, Privacy Windows in rear doors, side, and back. All maintenance done according to schedule at the KIA dealership, AM/FM CD player, garage door programable, two sets of original keys, low mileage because I work out of my home, U-Haul tow package installed with inserts yet the car has never been used to tow anything (plans changed, but I kept the hitch on). Extended Vehicle Service Contract with KIA good until 25 Dec 2016 or 36,000 additional miles (OD reading at time of extended warranty purchase 47,471). This has been an excellent car with no maintenance issues"

My car has never given me any trouble what so ever

"Compared to the new ones, mine drives better, offers more. The only reason I am considering selling is that I will be retiring very soon. My husband and I only need one vehicle since I do most of all the driving. Insurance and tags would be an extra cost to us. Our money will be limited. trying to cut cost."
