This vehicle has it all. Much research Ive done this year, model and make. The price is priced in the great range . The only thing it is missing for me is a sun roof.

For the price, this car is a great value. Solid car, good driving experience, and a lot of features for the price. Used car shoppers have the advantage that Kia still depreciates more than rivals like Honda or Toyota, and has similar quality and reliability by this point in time. Seemed like the logical choice for us because of that, after doing a lot of research and price comparison.

The car rides really smooth, and it handles the hills really well. There wasn’t much features with this specific model. I just like the Kia site to AWD because of the terrains that is in Waterbury CT.

Awesome Secondary Vehicle. — Fun comfortable vehicle. Roomy. Drove 2k mile round trip recently and am pleased with performance and reliability. 330 mile range between fuel stops. Recently changed 4 wheel brakes and rotors. Fairly easy job, easy to perform maintenance on thi vehicle.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Third row seating fold down for cargo and versatility, power and comfort.
Heavy vehicle, great traction with AWD in snow.  

Cons: Fair MPG for a 6 cylinder on highway, city not so good. 25hwy @ 80 mph  18 city.

Excellent Overall Vehicle — Best SUV we've owned. Others we've owned are Honda Pilot and Dodge Durango. The Sorento blows them away in power and fuel economy. Plus the warranty is way better. The panoramic sunroof rocks, bluetooth connectivity is great to have for hands-free phone use. The stereo system is excellent. Very durable and reliable vehicle.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent power, comfortable seats,  good visibility, reliable, excellent warranty

Cons: Torque steer if you accelerate to fast, gas mileage drops quite  a bit over 70 mpg

Great Family Vehicle — I like this vehicle. I would recommend it to anybody. Its safe and efficient, spaceous and comfortable. We bought it with 11, 000 miles, now have 70,000, never had an issue. It is a smaller SUV, but gets the job done.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfortable, great gas mileage, spaceous, tows our pop up camper fine, great for sporting events, travel destinations.  Great stereo system, bluetooth capability is awesome

Cons: I like this vehicle

Kia Quality 95k Still Going Strong — This Kia is a good quality vehicle. The cons out weigh the pros in my situation. You will get tired of this SUV real quick if you travel with a family of 3 or more point blank. The third row seat is a excellent accommodation but, space is limited. When both 3rd row seats are occupied resulting in zero space for packing items via the trunk. I'm now in search for a bigger SUV like GMC or Chevy. On the positive side, if I was single I'd be flying up and down the highway every chance I get due to the V6 power. The transition from automatic to manual at anytime is flawless and exiting especially going up hill and provides great feedback & control in traffic. Keep the oil change up or you will experience random jerking in manual model in 4th and 5th gear. A recall on the lighting system brakes and head lamps burning out. ( Commuter to work Family vehicle)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling while accelerating in corners, canyons in automatic or manual mode. EX model has a drop of luxury as plastic wood grain features cheapens the overall interior look. Great for a small family of 3 and no more!!!!   

Cons: Feel every rock, pebble, crack, seem, street marker on the road. This is not a smooth ride, more like roughhousing street pounder in the urban streets of California.

Have A Great Value For Money With 5 Years Bumper To Bumper Warranty! — 2.4L not bad for acceleration for a relaxed driver but aggressive after you pump a gas. 6 speed sportsmatic gives a choice of preference for a specific needs. When Im on rush I can select into electronic manual for fast acceleration and manuevering. Otherwise, I can use my cruise control for much more relaxing drive. Quality is awsome in and out. Seems like KIA is on a real world of COMPETETION. The design as well as the technology merge on the right timing. KOREAN architecture + European perspective + American worksmanship makes this vehicle have an edge for a new level of KIA generation. Appearance is competetive...not too big nor small with decent angles and shapes. It cost much cheaper than CR-V and Highlander with the same FEATURES! Let's say a matter of USD 5,000.00 with 60,000 miles bumper to bumper + 100,000 miles powertrain warranties. A 50.00 USD full tank and it run 300miles and more. Maintenance under the dealership for 100,000 miles it brings a lot of value so far. Roomy and quite cabin with bluetooth and satellite on board bring much more exciting!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Electronically advance as standard

Cons: stiffness
