Bought used, but loving it like new!

I bought this car used with 100,000 miles on it. My only problems have been tire related. The sensor seems very sensitive and showed on my dashboard before I could even notice anything with my tire. The back seat could stand to have slightly more leg room and an infant car seat barely fits without being pushed up against the front seat. I really love my leather seats, heated seats, and sun and moon roof. I get 24 mpg average and car fill up for less than $35 usually. The backup camera is also very helpful and has a big enough screen that objects are clear.

Kia family for us, we will always own Kia cars.

My Kia Sorento has been nothing but reliable! It is a 2011 but still has all the bells and whistles like heated seats, rear view camera. I love it and would recommend Kia to everyone. I cannot wait to upgrade it in a few years to the newer Sorento. They just keep getting better and better. My husband has a Kia and loves it as well. We are a Kia family for sure. It is a very comfortable car. Can seat 7 which I feel is amazing for its size. All the features are easy to figure out like putting the seats down or adjusting anything.

Kia Sorento, smooth ride. - very roomy. - good gas mileage. - low maintenance.

My Kia Sorento is awesome in that it has lots of legroom. I have driven with family members for several hours on vacation, and everyone said that they didn't realize it is as roomy as it is. I do travel lots of miles because of work, but I enjoy good gas mileage. I have had few problems other than bulbs, batteries, and things of that nature. Only fault is that I should have gotten a different type of upholstery, it collects the dirt and stains. Still does not negate the fact that the Kia Sorento is a smooth ride.
