2011 Kia Sorento LX 4WDReview

"how Do You Like Me Now??" Very Nice Wheels At A Very Nice Price. — Excellent quality, many items that are optional elsewhere are standard equipment in the 2011 Sorento. Handling is good, braking excellent with the stability package. Ours is an I-4 with the 6 spd auto and third seat. Acceleration is good and fuel economy seems good also with 600 mi on the clock--20 mpg in suburban and city driving with no trips yet. I expect that on a road trip it will exceed the 28 mpg EPA rating. This is a comfortable, good looking SUV with a lot going for it. Don forget the warranty! We live in Maine and drive our cars and trucks into the ground, kept the last SUV for 9 yrs and 130,000 mi. I looked at all of them and chose the Sorento. Expect that it will last and be reliable for a long time. Recommend it to anyone who needs AWD and elbow room.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Well designed, quality emphasized

Cons: Cant think of a negative yet.

Great — I like this car because it is a great family car and I have never had anything go wrong with the car. It is very reliable and will take you anywhere you want to go. Rides very smooth and would buy another Kia sorento

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Seats a family of five very comfortable with plenty of storage.

Cons: Tires are expensive to replace

Almost The Perfect Suv — I love the style, color and features this has at a price that puts Range Rover to shame. This has far more feature , full moon roof, heated steering wheel front and back heated seat excellent electronics system with Nav and great on fuel.

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

Pros: Comfort, Cost, feature

Cons: No real clearance to off road, to tow package

Nothing.. — like the overall of it , I have nothing really to dislike on this car .. of course you maybe want the dash navigation system but the off price for the package , was not available with the 4 cylinder engine ... power everything and 3 row seats are just perfect for the needs .

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: what you get for the price ...

Cons: missing the giant sunroof, on my version.

Fun Car To Drive And Great In Snow — Seating is comfortable with the lumbar support and the heat Acceleration was surprisingly good Driving in snow does outstanding with the differential lock option Great looking front end style and the Dark Cherry color makes this SX look good Handling is a bit stiff but for a 4 wheel drive -- normal All in all Great Car!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Warrenties, Voice activation controls including phone nav radio

Cons: MPG could be better but 24.5 MPG for a V6 isn't to bad
