Practical and affordable SUV.

2009 Kia Sorento LX

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

2009 Kia Sorento LX

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

Traction control works amazing on slippery roads.

2009 Kia Sorento LX

Great car hardly even broke down. Great mileage, heavy duty, rugged, great pick up and safe. Had it 4 years now and plan to buy another one shortly. Kia builds very safe and reliable car, many features to make driving very easy. 4x4 for the winters is the way to go, handles great in rain, snow and ice.
