Went to see 4 Sorrentos in 1 day, all had engines replaced, or engine problems. No longer looking for Sorrentos.

Family Car Fun To Drive — Handling, fuel economy, roomy, fun to drive, price, reliable, long warranty, comfortable, nice design, lot of standard options lack sometimes power on hilly roads, suspension may be stiff for some people (but good for me) Overall this is a true family car but very fun and nice to own and drive - also safe with lot of options - I like it and will buy a second KIA

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, fuel economy, roomy, fun to drive, price, reliable, long warranty, comfortable, nice design, lot of standard options

Love My Kia! — The Sorento is a great car. Great for trips around town and comfortable for long road trips. Smaller than a full sized SUV, but the cargo space is still huge. And then when you put the seats down, tons of room - you've got a little over 6' back there! I've taken it camping and slept in the back! The heated seats and AWD are great in the winter.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great little SUV!

Cons: Can't really think of anything.

The cabin was really quiet, a big plus. The handling was spot on. I really love the third row seating for the family. Plenty of room and loved the leather seats.
