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.

Gas, comfort, room, and radio positioning.

I feel like I have to refill my tank constantly. I also have replaced my headlights twice for I had to do it once on the other car. The car is very comfortable and is very roomy. I love a seat adjustment and how the radio is positioned. My next car I buy will probably be a Kia.

My Kia love it because it is reliable.

Love the way it drives and it has seats that heat up when it's cold the rear view mirror has a back up camera in it its 4 wheel drive good in snow can seat 7 people. Has remote starter in the keys. Seats in back go down so you have more room in the back for more to carry.

- Teresa W

Great value for the price paid.

I have had no major problems with my Kia Sorento. I have had to get the air compressor replaced about 2 years ago. It's the only time I have had something fixed under the hood. Vehicle rides smooth. Basic features with the interior. I am really happy with my vehicle.

2011 FWD Kia Sorento - lightweight mid-size SUV.

The last car I had was a 2003 Ford Taurus. Even though that was a sedan and I currently drive a SUV, the Taurus was much better in inclement weather. My Sorento is FWD, is light weight, handles absolutely terrible on wet and snowy roads and is bad on gas.

Great height and wonderful size for a single mom.

Love this car! It is reliable and safe for a family! Have not had any issues with it and believe it is a great one to purchase! If you keep up with the maintenance and keep the car clean it will last forever! Love the height of the car and the size!

- Melissa P

The steering can be jerky and hard to handle on rough surfaces.

Overall, this car is a smooth drive with very few mechanical issues. General maintenance is practically all I have had to do. However, the steering can be jerky and hard to handle on rough surfaces.

- Kelly F

Not bad but not something I would buy again

This car is mostly reliable but I have had a lot of small issues with it. My windows have quit working, my door handles have fallen off, and my headlights flicker. I personally would not buy again.

Stylish 2009 Kia Sorento

I have a very nice and stylish 2009 Kia Sorento that I absolutely love.it has solid towing capability and is available four-wheel drive which is great when our family travels to the mountains.

- Kelli H

They should watch out for the door handles breaking on the outside.

I dislike that the door handles broke and the air conditioner. I like that it is a SUV and the fact that it is high off the ground. I am happy with the make and model of the car.

- Erica S

It's a great vehicle but it does take a decent amount of gas to go places

I love my vehicle, I haven't had any problems out of it yet other than the fact that my low tire pressure light randomly goes off and sometimes flash and act crazy for no reason

- Keirsten N

Other should know that the car is a great SUV for small families.

I love the size of this vehicle. It's easy to transport groceries, kids, etc. It's also not too big. However, I do experience electrical issues and trouble driving in rain/snow.

- Ashley L

I love my car! It is safe and reliable. It's not too big or too small.

I like the car but since I bought it used it doesn't have lots of bells and whistles. It drives beautifully. I would love to have heated seats and air vents in the back.

- Cristina B

I guess I'm not sure. Like I said, it's long-lasting and has been pretty safe. Both good pros

It seems like a sturdy vehicle that has kept running for a good long time without having to upkeep too much, but it drives like a truck--in that you feel every bump.

- Callio S

You get what you pay for.

It's not a smooth ride. I had the differential go on me and it was a costly repair that they said would not be under warranty until i complained and had it fixed.

- bill c

Great for towing equipment, plenty of interior room as well.

This vehicle has been great with moving equipment around. There is plenty of room even for our dog. The towing capacity is really good. Very reliable vehicle.

- Ron E

It is a very safe vehicle that has protected us from a couple of accidents.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my Kia. It has been through several wrecks and has kept us safe in every one. I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

Kia takes a lickin and keeps on tickin

Car has been reliable with next to no issues for almost 10 years and a ton of miles. The only real issue was replacing the drive train last month

- Sarah F

It is powered by a small nuclear device.

I generally love it, I do wish it was a little bigger and that the gas mileage was better. The 4x4 is very nice to have where I live.
