I need an SUV type vehicle because of the way the driver sits up higher than in reg auto. The frame is above the ground higher than reg. autos. That makes it easier for me to get in and out of. I have arthritis in almost all my joints and this type of auto is safer. In my opinion.

Fairy Satisified. — Terrible on gas, and the car blows front headlight bulbs often. $15 each this is a constant pain. Very poor resale value on Kia Products. Probably won't buy another Kia Product. Should be a recall for this electrical Issue on blowing front headlight bulbs. You should read about the owners of these in Alaska where it's dark half the year.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good cargo room and spacious seating for 5 passengers. 10 year 100,000 warranty can't be beat.

Cons: Terrible on Gas. The Wiring is the absolute worst on any car I've ever owned. It blows front Light every 3 months as well as the rear tail lights as well. The front bulbs are $15 each very expensive replacing these bulb if I get 3 months out of them.

Fairly Good Vehicle — there is a lot of electrical issues for the car. Also, has problems with the AC Compressor. But there are a lot of good things, I love the room in the vehicle and you can lay the seats down in the back and you have a large cargo area,

Pros: large cargo area, comfortable seats

Cons: electrical issues, AC compressor issues

Good Dependable Car! — I really like the ride height, we do not feel like we are on the ground! This is a really good family car. We want to sell or trade it very soon! I am a disabled vet that came home from the desert with an injury.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Has never let us down, great appearance !

Cons: Headlight keeps blowing

If You Really Want A Suv Badly, This Is A Reasonable Car That Could Help You Out. —

Have driven this car mostly under off-road conditions for 3 months straight. It had 137,000 km’s on it so, the engine was pretty much beaten up. Having said that, the overall off-road performance was quite satisfactory. The ground clearance was helpful most of the time but it’s difficult to say the same thing for the torque being generated from the 2.5 liter engine. When driving at midrange rpm, it feels fine and roars just like a school bus as the turbo kicks in. However when you try to take off against a steep hill it simply chokes. The vehicle lacks explosive power which is very important for going off-road. Because of this fact (and the excess weight of course) the car feels really bulky and that conveniently supports my opinion of SUV’s being very inessential for general use. Once I forgot to shift out of the all-wheel drive and kept going a little above 50 km/h for few minutes which caused a really fierce overheating problem that got kind of scary. One other shocking thing is that the A/C is not powerful enough for cooling when driving with 3 other passengers. The retractable antenna goes in and out as you turn the radio off and on. The one I was driving was making clanking sounds as it was failing to do so. Still, it can be said that it somewhat looksgood and comes out among other SUV’s with the two-colored body paint.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: A fine and cheaper option for a SUV.

Cons: Consumption is off the charts.

Great Suv For Everyday. — My kia is great, I actually raced it at Rockingham Dragway one weekend and it suprised all the people there that it performed so well. I even beat a camaro my first time. Kia's are really well built cars, and even thought the Sorento is an SUV its gas mileage isn't all that bad.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Very roomy and very safe 6 air bags!

Cons: Takes lots of gas when you have a heavy foot.

Not So Great. — I bought this vehicle when it had about 20,000 miles on it and proved to be reliable until at about 50,000 miles. Immediately past 50,000 miles I began to experience multitude of problems with the vehicle. Despite doing regular tune ups and carrying out other recommended services, the problems keep coming.

Pros: Great power and excellent height.

Cons: Poor on accessories.
