"I want to buy the Sorento as I need a heavier suv for my osteoarthritis. I'm 74 & still very active as much as my old body allows. I live where I must have a 4 wheele drive. This Sportage is my 2nd Kia & I plan to buy the Sorento. Great protection on all."

"This car is holding up better than my expectations. I've never held a car this long and I'm very happy with it. Repairs have been mimimal. Hope when I get a new one they're as good. My only complaint is that I didn't get the 6-Cyl because I live in the mountains and need it for passing on a hill. Not a trophy car but real nice."
