Pros

Very reliable and well built SUV. Decent Power. Handling is mushy, wish it cornered better. This is the 1st generation Sorento, and IMO was the test bed for the successful 2nd gen Sorento.

Cons

Maintentance costs overall have been minimal w/the exception of brakes; front brakes. I've gone through two sets of brakes since I bought car new in 2008 and am in need of another new set. Front brake discs warp.

Reliable, And Very Under Appreciated. — This SUV was a great value for what I paid. Overall it's austere vehicle, but very solid, well built and reliable. I'm not someone who pays extra for catchy/cliched marketing and Kia definitely fit that bill. I would definitely buy another Kia. Korean engineering is the best around these days, better than Japan, Germany, US - I think.

08 Kia Sorento — Rear seats do not fold down all the way flat which is dissapointing when trying to "haul" stuff. Would be nice to have driver's side window go up automatically in addition to going down automatically. Other than that, really like the car - fabulous to drive!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

2008 Kia Sorento — I love this SUV! It is roomy and comfortable. The price is very reasonable. It looks terrific and gets better gas mileage than expected. The Sorento is quiet and has a smooth ride. It handles great. I had a Sportage and loved it but needed something a little bigger. The only negative is that it does not come with keyless entry, which is easy enough to add on your own. I would recommend this SUV to everyone. The performance, appearance and quality are excellent.
