Practical and affordable SUV.

My Kia is very reliable. The most maintenance I have had done is routine and a headlight bulb replaced in ten years. It is great on gas and the seats are amazingly comfortable. The features are limited. No controls on the steering wheel or built in GPS but it has everything it needs to be practical, like folding rear seats, power windows and windshield warmer to melt ice. No four wheel drive but if your not going far in the snow it is not too bad. Only real problem is fitting a car seat in the back with a passenger in the front.

Love my Kia Sorento! Great car for a family

I've had my Kia for 10 years. It's been a great car with no issues beyond maintenance oil, tires and battery. Decent ride, a bit rough and needs better shocks. Some wind noise but overall, love my Kia. The gas mileage is decent at about 27mpg I've not had any major problems and will probably buy another one when I am ready to purchase my next vehicle

Kia review, likes and dislikes.

Great warranty, but bad gas mileage for a smaller vehicle the only problems I have had are the mileage per gallon, as for comfort it is ok. Love the 4 wheel drive this vehicle has Easy to work on, nice leg room in both front and back seats. Tows my boat very easy, but it is only a 18 foot alum. Bass boat.
