My Kia Sorento: 15 year old car.

Durable. The only problem was that the alarm goes off even when the door is closed and ac makes a loud noise when I turn it on. It really never gave me serious problems. Most problem was because I never kept up with maintenance. The engine oil and steering wheel oil does not last long either.

- Brenda E

It is durable and rugged and it handles quite a bit.

The car is older so the ac does not work due to the air compressor being dead, there is also a leak in one of the hoses making it so I am constantly refilling the antifreeze. There is also a minor computer problem making some of the minor electronics not work.

- Amanda L

My vehicle is a little old but runs well.

My vehicle performs well, it has a smooth ride, few problems, is very comfortable and looks nice. I have had it for about 14 years, it has about 139, 000 miles on it and it still drives well. I have gotten compliments on my vehicle and my son enjoys the ride.
