Love everything about the vehicle except the running boards.

The car is comfortable to ride in. It fits my husband who is 6’2 but also my self that is 5’1. E have trouble finding a vehicle that is comfortable to drive for both of us. The car is very quiet when running. We haven't had to do any major repairs on it. The car came with running boards which I hate. It makes it very difficult for me to get in and out of the car. The car has heated seats which are wonderful. It handles very well in the snow. Back seat folds down and it gives us a lot of room to haul tools and equipment. The back seat is just as comfortable to ride as the front seat We can fit 2 car seats in back seat for our grandchildren and still fit a person between them.

Awesome car! Can fit 7 passengers!

I really love my Kia Sorento! I've had it for a little over a year now. I love that it has a third row seat! Great for carpooling trip or with big family. However, when you have 7 people in the vehicle, and the back seats pulled up there's not a ton of space for bags/camping gear. We have to squished lots of stuff under our feet. I don't mind but some people might not like this. The only thing I wish was that it had 4WD. I think there are models that have this but mine does not. The only problem I've had is that when the weather changed dramatically with the coming winter season I had to buy a new battery. Overall I love this car!

A mid-size family SUV that offers third row seating.

The most recent problem I have been having with my vehicle is the driver side (electric) window control button. When I push the button down to lower the window the button gets stuck in the down position lowering the window at an automatic pace rather than at my preferred pace. But other than that, in my opinion, my vehicle performs at an amazing level that I think can only be improved on if I honestly kept up with the maintenance due dates as advised by mechanics. The third row seating in my vehicle allows me to seat my family and an additional person or two, with a good amount of legroom for each passenger.

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.

- Kristen M

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.

- Jackie J

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.

- La Shonda M

Great 7 passenger seating.

Both of my front doors were not able to be opened at one point due to the latch assembly breaking. This is a common issue with Kia but because it is not a safety issue they will not do a recall on it. That has been my only major issue. In general, I love my car. It is comfy and the interior is very nice. The third row seating was important to us and it served it is purpose for us. I have around 146,000 on it and it is still going strong with the proper care. I would consider another one in the future.

- Jennifer B

It is reliable and has not given us problems!

I haven't really had mechanical problems, except for the door latches. For some reason I was unable to open the rear drivers side door from the inside or outside. After taking it to the dealer, I found out that the latches were under recall. The Kia dealership fixed it, at no cost to me. We purchased it in 2015 and have never broke down, it is a very reliable vehicle. The only disadvantage of my Kia is that there is not a 3rd row, so it is not very roomy for a newborn, toddler and a 9 year old.

- Kay H

Best midsize SUV for the money!

My 2011 Kia Sorento is a very reliable and safe car. Loaded with luxury features like Bluetooth, backup camera, 3rd row seating & heated front seats and a double moon roof to name a few. I still marvel at how well this car performs and handles on city roads & under extreme weather conditions! Very kid & animal friendly vehicle. The only improvements I would suggest are to the stereo system & better outside noise cancellation. Otherwise, this is an impeccable vehicle for the price! I love it!

- Brittany T

My car has the 3rd row seating and it's great to have when you need extra room. It also has AWD and that's great for the snow.

I have not had any real problems with the car. One time the car would not turn off and I had to play with it to get it to turn off. I had to take it to the dealership to get fixed. I later found out there is a kill switch next to the gears. It's the very small door that you pop open and push the button inside. The other problem I'm currently having is a wiring issue with the phone, and radio. If I hit the volume button the phone connects. But it's been fine otherwise.

- Sandra S

AWD vehicle with decent MPG ideal for a single person or small family and area with a choice of Kia certified mechanics

What I love best about my Kia Sorento is the all wheel drive. I live on a dirt road and it has gotten me through a couple feet of snow, mud, rain, and ice. We have driven the car half-ways across the country and back and it has fit all our luggage and gotten us to where we needed to go safely. The major con has been how expensive repairs have been; the nearest dealership is 87 miles away and not every mechanic i used to working on Kias in our area.

- Danielle A

The space in the back has 2 compartments in the bottom that can hold a lot!

I love the space! This car has been reliable. I am pleased with the mpg for the size of this car. I feel that this is one of the safest cars I have ever owned!! The car is very comfortable. I have enough room in the back seat for a car seat for my granddaughter and can still accommodate two others in comfort. The very back space holds a lot of groceries. I was pleased with how much room I had in that space when I went on vacation this past summer.

- Jeannette D

What I love about my 2011 Kia Sorento.

I drive a 2011 Kia Sorento, I absolutely love it. I have kept up with all my vehicle maintenance to my vehicle and any recalls that may have come up. I have third row seating which was great when the children were young and traveling to give them both room to spread out. I have not had any major problems just normal wear & tear. I have had to replace ball joints, sway bar links and the body is in great shape, no rust that I know of on body.

- Laura C

Reliability and Versatility

I enjoy my Kia Sorento. It is reliable and very versatile. I have used it to haul kids and pets as well as landscaping materials. The seats adjust easily to accommodate all kinds of loads. There is ample legroom in the front as well as in the backseat. The only thing I do not like about the vehicle is the upholstery. It is very susceptible to stains and difficult to clean. I also do not like that there is no spare tire or "doughnut".

- Lisa P

There's air vents in all rows everyone can adjust the temperature.

The only problem is when the third row is up there is not trunk space. The second row has plenty of space my 6'2 husband can fits back there comfortable with 2 toddler car seats. And has plenty of legroom. We love how much space there is Its doesn't feel cramped even with 7 people in the car. We overall love it. Beside when we have to use the third row. When we used the third row we can't use the trunk a all there is no space a all.

- Stacey F

That it is a great SUV with rather decent gas mileage and yet still has a sporty feel.

I love my Kia Sorento because it has plenty of room for me and my kids. It is semi affordable though I really wish they would cut people with bad credit a break so I didn't have to pay over $300 a month for a car payment. I also wish Kia offered a warranty on their older cars because I totally would have paid extra to have the protection. Only think car wise I would like is if the seats folded into the floor to make it flat.

- Natalie J

Good sturdy reliable vehicle.

A roomy car that is great for travel. The third row seating has been an added asset for taking multiple kids to and from activities. The seats are comfortable, the dash is easy to navigate, and I am happy with the stereo system. One negative to point out is the noise level. I hear a lot of bumps, and mechanical noises while I am driving. Also, the material on the seats seem to show stains very easily.

- Jodi L

Comfortable midsize family car.

Very reliable comfortable vehicle. I have had no issues other than changing the battery and new tires. Love the option of having third row seating. Great gas mileage, and good power. Comfortable road trip car, plenty of room for 7-8 passengers with third seat. I am able to haul things by laying the seats down. Low maintenance vehicle well built, would definitely consider purchasing another Kia Sorento.

- Renee B

Kia- products with drive!

We have had very few problems with our Kia Sorento. The work we have had done on the vehicle has been routine service based on age or mileage, as opposed to requiring the work due to malfunctioning. When we buy a second vehicle, we probably will purchase a similar Kia Sorento. In the past, we have owned two other Kias, a 2005 Sedona and a 2009 spectra. That tells you how much we like Kia products!

- Kathleen E

Great car for your money!

I have been so happy with my Kia. I got it over 6 years ago and have had no major problems. I feel like the drive is very smooth compared to other cars. I needed a car with all wheel drive for work and this car did not disappoint with being very reliable in the winter months. My favorite features are the heated seats and the rear backup camera. I definitely recommend this car to anyone looking.

- Christina W

Reliable workhorse with little care.

The Sorento has been a very reliable car with almost no maintenance problems other than replacing the battery after three years and normal oil changes etc. The only problem was the bumpers faded after sitting in the sun almost all the time and I am having trouble getting them black again permanently. I would recommend Kia to anyone who wants a reliable low maintenance vehicle.

- Cheryl K

Back seat friendly car! Bonus that it is super easy to figure out!

I bought the car used. We needed an upgrade. It was very well taken care of though. I personally enjoy the ability to have the second row in the back the most for when my kids want their friends to come. I haven't had it a long time yet but I have enjoyed it very much. It was easy to set up the radio and connect my phone. I didn't have any issues doing any of it.

- Sarah L

It takes a while to warm up in the winter.

I really like that it has plenty of storage and lots of space for my dogs and friends when we all go on trips. The back up camera is really useful and the seat warmers have really been great in the winter. I do not however like how things are always breaking and it is so expensive to repair them because you have to get it fixed at a Kia dealership.

- Rebekah F

Reliable, comfortable and stylish workhorse which I highly recommend if you are looking for an SUV.

My car is a workhorse and very reliable. In recent years I have had to do extensive driving, which was not my plan when i bought the car. It is a comfortable ride. I would like a car with better gas mileage, however. With careful highway driving, I can squeak out 20 mpg. I will eventually replace it with gas mileage being high priority

- Debbie r

2011 white Kia Sorento great condition.

I have had the Kia Sorento since 2011 (its currently 2018) it runs amazing. Still like a brand new car. Only problems I have had is the back passenger side door broke, took it into Kia & got it fixed for free. My driver seat headrest keeps popping off. Also my back seat on passenger side will not go down so I can not haul stuff in my trunk.

- Page F

The Kia Sorento 2011 is a roomy car, but mpg and recalls are a deterrent.

This car was not as good on mileage per gallon as expected or reported. It only got around 19 mpg on the road and the advertised mileage was 24 mpg. The car headlights are not bright enough when driving at night and affected my vision capabilities and the amount of time I would drive at night. This particular model had a lot of recalls.

- Becky C

Great reliable car that we have enjoyed for years.

As a family of four we bought the Sorento years ago knowing that our two children would have times where they wanted to invite cousins/friends with us. We have used the third row plenty of times and really glad we went with that option. We have even filled it with all 7 passengers and took it on a road trip and it worked out perfectly.

- Tiffany C

Kia Sorento 2011 overview.

The Kia has been a quality family vehicle and I love the third row seating. My chief complaint is the cooling seems to be slack in the middle. I love the two sun roofs of which the first one in the front opens. It does make a strange noise when first started when the engine is cool, I have been told that is normal but it is concerning.

- Shawn L

Reliable small SUV that is comfortable and safe for winter months.

The Kia Sorento is perfect for a busy mom with kids. It is a small sub so it has four wheel drive during those winters months and yet feels just a tad larger than driving a car. I also love how much trunk space this car has because for something so small it is so big! Very roomy and love that the back seats recline for road trips.

- Eva W

The v6 engine has great spunk and drives really well. The handling is great.

This car has a very functional 3rd row of seating that stows away when you do not need it. When all seats are being utilized the cargo space is very limited. Access to the third row is great for older children and adults but if a child seat in located in the middle row it has to be removed to allow the access. We love this car.

- Theresa P

Great vehicle that is comfortable for an individual or a family.

My Kia has had very few problems in the time that I have had it. The performance has been very good with great reliability, comfort and features. The only issue that I wish I had purchased a 6cyl instead of a 4cyl. The 4cyl does give me better gas mileage but does not give me the ability to merge into traffic as a 6 cyl would.

- Carol P

It not only looks good, but it runs good and is reliable!

I own a 2011 Kia Sorento. I have only owned it for two years and I am still pleased with my decision to purchase it. I replaced tires and the battery but outside of that I have had no problems. It is great on gas and the air conditioner still runs ice cold. The cruise control, Bluetooth, and XM radio are my favorite features.

- Stephen A

It is been a very reliable vehicle and has really given me no problems I am very happy with my choice.

I like my Kia. It is a smaller SUV but big enough to carry a lot of people and to go shopping and stow it all in the back. It is nice to drive and is very reliable. It is great for me because I need a vehicle I can step up into as I have mobility issues and it is large enough to hold me and my family. I highly recommend it.

- Joe C

Third row is a god sent and still a compact car.

I love this car. I love most the 3rd row seating that can be laid down for extra cargo. I love the power of the v6. When using the third row seating if a car seat is needed in the middle row it can be difficult as the car seat needs to be removed if located in the center seat. Still a great vehicle and we love it.

- there's a P

An interesting detail about the Kia Sorento would be the Bluetooth feature capability.

I love my Kia and have not had any issues. I like that it has a back up sensor so that I know if I'm getting too close to an object or wall. I also love the safety feature with locking the doors when putting the gear into drive. Another is that you cannot lock the door unless you have the key out of the car.

- Jolene T

For being an SUV, it can whip into parking spots easily!

I like the fold down 3rd row seating option. Also, remote start, heated front seats, can turn sharp, good gas mileage. Do not like how little room it has for the 3rd row seating and when in use, there's no cargo space. Also wish it wasn't quite a price difference from front wheel drive and all wheel drive.

- Amber K

Great fuel mileage for a decent sized AWD SUV.

Very reliable. Comfortable. Smooth ride. Gets about 23 mpg overall. And it is AWD. It is underpowered, but that comes with the territory. Had to replace a rear hub. That is all. Not the quietest interior ride, but not bad. I would certainly recommend it. Overall, my favorite vehicle I have ever owned.

- Jed C

Just the right size for me and my husband.

I love the color and the fact that I do not have to drop to get in it or climb up in it. The seat is right at my level for easy access. It gets good gas mileage for an SUV and we have had hardly any issues on the up keep. It has good pickup and has never put me down when I needed a little more power.

- Nancy D

A great roomy SUV, amazing gas mileage and all around amazing vehicle.

I really love my Kia Sorento. As a mom of a toddler, 8 month old,a dog and cat it makes for a really comfortable ride. We have enough room in the truck area to put all of our belongings in. It also has great gas mileage. When I am traveling (depending on distance) I only fill up about once or twice.

- Brook H

Car is not only very reliable, but also comfortable, and stylish.

Car has been good to me...no major issues, standard maintenance, but for items like tires, battery, brakes, the factory installed items lasted twice as long as I would have expected. Of the issues I have had, Kia has always fixed the issues in a timely manner, and they've all been under warranty.

- Matt H

Over all I really like the Kia it has a lot more room than what it looks like.

Very comfortable and roomy. No problems beside regular maintenance had to replace battery 3 times which I thought was a bit much first time car was less than year old. Also had to replace driver side window motor never had to do this in any other car before I thought this was a bit strange also.

- Deborah C

The steering on this vehicle is not good and it's unsafe to drive in my opinion. As you're driving into a curve in the road and you hit the little sewer cover or a pothole on the road, your car will jerk towards the direction you are steering and if you do not control it you could hit the curb or another car if you're not an awesome driver.

This wasn't a vehicle I purchased for myself so I took what I was given. I like the leather seats. The headlights were great until they fogged over which is ridiculous for such a new vehicle. The steering is terrible and jerks if I hit a pothole while driving into a turn. It's an unsafe vehicle.

- Joe S

Good for the year the vehicle was made.

Vehicle works good, only issue is the a/c stopped working properly a few years ago. Sometimes the brakes get a little funky, but it works. Seats are rather comfortable and do not stain very easily. Sometimes the engine can roar really loudly, but I think that is just due to it being 7 years old.

- Kaitlyn L

I love my Kia Sorento and you will too.

I love my 2011 Kia Sorento. It's great on gas, safe and I can comfortably fit my family of 6 with 3rd row seating. We purchased this SUV at a great price and it has all the perks you want in an affordable vehicle. AWD handles great in the snow and rain during the winter months in New England.

- Lindsey C

Kia Sorento- reliable, durable and roomy.

I honestly have had hardly any issues with my Sorento. I have only had to do routine maintenance on it, nothing major has broken down and needed to be replaced. The only negative thing I could say was I wish it got better gas mileage. Great performance, reliability and passenger/cargo room.

- Laura S

Good quality car. Really reliable and great on gas and runs really.

Just had to put a transmission into it bought it used now everything is fine. The vehicle has lots of room a really good look easy on gas and really performs really well only have to keep regular maintenance up on the car so am pretty impressed. Will buy another one when this one gives out.

- Timothy D

My car review: comfort level is over nine thousand my guy.

The front seats are amazing, really adjustable to your height and everything can be moved. It's a nice car, the air conditioner still works after years of use. The comfort is amazing still feels like just when I got it. I am very impressed with how the car is and still am happy years later.

- Rose E

I have had the vehicle since it was new I haven't had any problems.

I haven't really had any problems with the Kia, the performance is great, pretty fast, it is not very good on gas, 22 miles to the gallon on average, I haven't had any problems with any of the functions of the vehicle, the features on it are all working, I would definitely buy another one.

- Ray B

great reliable car.

I have enjoyed my car very much. Got this particular model for the 3rd row seating, however have only used it twice in 6 years. The only “problem “ I have come across is living in the northeast the button under the brake pedal that enables the vehicle to start has frozen in the past.

- Jennifer M

It has durable and reliable longevity. I can totally depend on it.

This car has been extraordinary. I've never had a major problem with it, and minor problems and recalls were handled at the dealership under the amazing warranty. After almost eight years of driving my car I am still under warranty and the car still looks and functions like a new car.

- Mary Ann L

Compact but useful. Easy to operate.

I constantly have problems with the traction control, incline, and abs sensor. Every time we think it is fixed or have been told it was fixed it still shows all lights. The cloth also will take stains very easily. Even water. It is a good vehicle in some ways but not my ideal choice.

- Alison R

Comfortable and reliable vehicle.

I like everything about my vehicle with the exception of some extras not on this model, heated seats, outside temperature display. It has no problems and I like the way it drives, performs and it reliability. I would purchase another Kia Sorento if I was going to buy another car.

- Shan D

2011 Kia Sorento 4 cylinder.

I have driven this car for over 8 1/2 yrs. It is very good on gas, has spacious cargo area and has many convenient options like Bluetooth, heated seats and backup camera. We did have a brake switch problem after we first purchased the car which was repaired as a part of a recall.

- Jill S

Great reliable Kia Sorento with nice features.

My Kia Sorento has been a very reliable vehicle, drives very well in the snow, and has some nice added features such as heated seats and a back up camera. It has almost 100, 000 miles on it and I have only had to do general maintenance on the vehicle and have no other problems.

- Teresa L

Amazing Kia Sorento. I love this car.

Going strong at 133000 miles. No a lot of problems and Kia is very good at recalls and taking care of them right away. Love the third row of seats because it comes in handy. I would buy a Kia Sorento again that is how much I love this car. I always recommend this car to people.

- Brandy S

Nice ride for the price. Comfortable and roomy.

The Kia Sorento is a nice comfortable car. I have only owned it for a few months so I cannot speak to the reliability. The only things I wish it had are heated seats and mirrors. It has a nice stereo system and easy controls. It rides smoothly and gets me where I want to go.

- Cj J

That is a great family car

I love that I have fabric heated seats, and a backup camera. I like how it rides and I love the fact that I have a third row of seats. I wish that it had memory for both of the drivers so we would not have to adjust our chair and mirror manually every time I get in the car.

- Kris W

A spacious up to date car.

It runs great. The door handles have all come off and needed replaced. It does get great gas mileage and is spacious. It tells us the average miles it has left so it make it easier to determine how much gas is available. It also tells how much air pressure is in the tires.

- Tina F

Kia is good and the warranty is good.

The tires that came with the vehicle were not great. Had to purchase new ones to handle snow driving. Great room inside seats are comfortable. Back seats are difficult to pull down. Have had a few recalls and got them fixed. Do like the vehicle and would buy another again.

- Jeanne L

Great family car for people who travel as vel.

I love my car drives great. I feel safe because of the design looks great hands free driving is a great feature is case of emergency. Plenty of interior space and having the choice of putting only one side of back seat down one is larger than the other. Very simple to do.

- Donna M

This car is awesome. Everyone should get one!

I love my Kia! It is very spacious with lots of seating. My daughter loves it as well. I have not had any issues with the car other than the door handles coming off and my steering wheel controls stopped working. The car is really reliable and gets me where I need to go.

- Jenna A

Nice, reliable SUV for the price.

Good car/SUV for the price. Stylish, roomy, affordable to maintain, great gas mileage. Nice color choices. Not fast on the start but that's expected with a 4 cylinder. Makes traveling by car somewhat comfortable on long or short road trips. I would consider buying again.

- Rod D

Great family car and great on gas.

I really like the car, good on gas and stuff, reliable, a lot of trunk space, wish it was more updated with technology like the back up camera and GPS, would definitely recommend for a family car, has lots of space in the back also, great mileage for long distance trips.

- Marissa G

Love my Sorento!! Love my Kia.

No problems so far and the car is 7 years old. Great fuel economy. Fun to drive, handles perfectly. Very comfortable ride on long trips. Highly recommended. If asked about a Kia, I would tell people not to hesitate in buying one. Another Kia will bought in a few years.

- Robert F

Great car/SUV for the price.

No problems. Fuel efficient. Sporty. Low maintenance cost if needed. Roomy. Great color options. Perfect type of car for single or married with children. Former owner was a lyft, uber driver that racked up some miles. But still runs and looks great. Well taken care of.

- Rodney D

Good car and I recommend if you like foreign cars.

Minimal problems. These front-wheel drive only cars are not quite crossovers but are more practical than other cars with their same footprint. With 1 million units sold in the u. S. , the Kia Soul has a lot going for it. But there’s definitely room for improvement.

- Alex E

Great vehicle for families and taking trips.

Rear end camera doesn't always work, extremely reliable, very comfortable seats especially for long road trips, lots of legroom, heated seats, great cargo space, drives well in all kinds of weather, has tinted windows that help keep the vehicle cool in summer months.

- Dawn R

Kia review, pro's & con's.

The seats barely have room for two car seats. -gas mileage is not good as the specs state. -window buttons are sensitive. -sound is excellent. -handles good while driving. -storage in the back is limited and small. -a lot of convenient accessories that are use.

- Natasha L

3Rd row for extra passenger seating or can be folded down for extra trunk space.

I fell in love with my car once I got inside. The 2-tone leather seats and interior is half cloth / half leather. It has wood-grain on the dash, which I love. There is a 3rd row that can either fold down for extra trunk space or lift up for extra passenger seating.

- Gia F

Proud owner of a Kia Sorento.

Purchased the vehicle used with 40 thousand miles. I purchased an extended warranty and I maintain my car According to the manufacturer. Not one problem short of having to replace the usual; i.e. battery and tires. Totally reliable vehicle and I am proud to own it.

- Beverly J

Comfortable; great storage.

Good gas mileage. Very reliable. Comfortable, smooth drive. Seating is extremely adjustable for all heights. Great storage space with fold down back seats. Easy to use dashboard features. Bluetooth works great & speakers/microphone are perfect for hands free calls.

- Ali D

This car is very functional.

Lots of space with the third row of seats when they are down or up. The car drives very smooth, and does very well in the snow and rain. Minimal blind spots. The radio system that comes with the car is very easy to use and set up, including the Bluetooth abilities.

- Nikki C

Very well priced comfortable ride as well.

I really like my Kia very good with gas. Very comfortable riding. It is an SUV and fits 5 people comfortably. I can pack 3 or more suitcases with plenty of room for small carry ons. Locks well and can be spotted in a large parking lot because of details on the top.

- Sheila E

It is very reliable, and maintenance is very low and easy.

I have had no problems at all with my 2011 Kia Sorento. Maintenance has been very easy and it is an extremely reliable vehicle. It handles great and is very comfortable in long drives. The ability to connect your phone via Bluetooth is very convenient as well.

- Rita C

It says its go green on gas but do not think so.

Needs better radio needs a TV or GPS in car. Its soft sets. Love how you can child lock it and windows go down half way in the back and love how there's a lock for the windows. I go through to much gas needs to improve that. Would be better if had heated sets.

- Solange G

Sits high, but not so high that it is difficult to get in and out of.

I have no complaints at all about my Sorento. It is a comfortable ride and very reliable. I get decent gas mileage. In the last year and a half, I have driven from we state, to KY, 3 trips to mi, 2 to gab, 2 to VA Now I live in VA and it is still going strong.

- Kim J

It is good on gas, and a comfortable affordable car.

The air conditioner is a little wonky, I need new tires, and I am sure for an oil change soon but other than normal wear and tear the vehicle is actually ok it is comfortable and good on gas. I would actually consider getting a newer model of this car again.

- Courtney S

That it's affordable, but very comfortable and also stylish in my opinion. It's like a best kept secret!

I really like the comfort of the interior, I like the safety features. There have been several recalls, but Kia has stood by their product and repaired all of these recalled parts quickly and free of charge. Also, the Sons Kia service department is the best!

- wanda H

Great family car but could use minor Improvement.

Overall a good running car good on gas enough room for large family. Wish it had more trunk space when third row was up. No all wheel Drive which is a drawback. Good sound system easy clean seats. Good leg room but third row is tight only suitable for kids.

- Brooke S

Ok small SUV but not for me.

Is roomy and it drives ok, but I do not think I'll buy another kid Sorento again, only because about a month after buying it the air needed to be charged but it is a ok car considering. It is good on gas and that is about all I can say about this vehicle.

- Courtney L

A good value and reliable vehicle. No problems in 7 years.

Very reliable, comfortable and inexpensive. It has had no issues in 7 years. I would purchase a Kia again. The value for the price is great. It easily accommodates my large husband. Gasoline mileage is good even in town. Cargo space is more than adequate.

- Jan Q

It's a great family car, great on gas, easy to maintain, and has nice features like bluetooth, rear view camera, and sensors for when you're backing up.

I love my car because it perfect for my family size. It's also great on gas, easy to maintain/clean, and it's also very reliable. Right now I'm having problems getting the rear view camera to work but other than that I haven't had any real issues with it.

- Samantha B

Love my Kia, you cannot go wrong.

No problems. Economical, safe, comfortable. Would recommend the Kia brand to anyone who asks. Will probably buy another Kia when the time comes. Sorento has all the features I need. Seems there are more features now that are standard. Nothing more to say.

- Bob F

Just a fun vehicle to drive.

I love this vehicle, because maintenance is low, very dependable comfortable to drive, roomy ten year warranty and any recall was communicated to me and the dealer fixed the problem in a timely manner at no cost to me. I will definitely buy a Kia again.

- Cindy G

2011 Kia Sorento - the good, the bad, and ugly.

I love the vehicle and double sunroof feature, backup camera, heated seats, etc. I have had issues with the starter that had to be replaced already. Also the alignment has to be re done often therefore seems like the tires have to be replaced a lot.

- Lindsay C

good clean design inside with heated seats for the winter. Also like the tinted windows to keep intruders from peeking in.

runs smooth, handles well. comfortable both front and rear seats. ..rear passenger seat does not fold down like it should when you need to haul large items. no problems with vehicle as long as maintenance is kept up and you follow up with recalls.

- jeff c

Not good appreciation. Only has 5 mile spare. Should have full size spare.

Good SUV. Roomy, decent gas mileage, handles good in bad weather with all wheel drive, has Bluetooth for hands free phone calls. All controls on steering wheel. Do not like the 5 mile spare-should have full size spare. Appreciation not good.

- Gary S

Good for a couple with one child

It is a great vehicle. Good on gas and a smooth ride. It worked well when I had only one child but two car seats are very crowded in the back seat. There is a good amount of storage space in the way back but the back seat is very cramped.

- Laura W

gar mileage was overstated on the sticker, actual city mileage is lower

dislike the cap popping off the battery cable rendering the car inoperable, gas mileage is not as good as the sticker indicated. like the room in the back when row 3 is down, love the sunroof, seat warmers and great air conditioner

- pamela L

My vehicle is very roomy. I am able to get 6 grown adults in it with no problems

I love my car. The only problem I have ever had with the car was when it would not shift out of gear. The plastic spring holder in the gear shift had broken off. It was covered by a recall but i never received the recall letter.

- Carrie R

the most important thing about the kia sorento is that it has good highway mileage

I enjoy the kia sorento very much, im still getting use to it. having three children it is roomy and comfortable. my only concern with the kia sorento is how light it may be and how it seems to do poor in the rain it hydroplanes.

- kylee r

It Drives well and is very reliable. The all wheel drive is great for a small family/

I love the AWD especially in the winters. It is roomy enough in the back seats for adults and the push start is great. My biggest complaint is that the 3rd row seat is really NOT a 3rd row. It's much too small to use in that way

- Rachel B

Has plenty of trunk space when the 3rd row of seats is down

Like the extras it came with-Sirius radio is my favorite, then the seat warmer feature. Dislike the lower than expected gas mileage and battery terminal cover that pops up shorting out the battery and radio preset stations

- Gwenn B

It's good on gas, and is very roomy on the inside. Lots of space.

I like that the seats fold in and that the radio controls are on the steering wheel. It is smooth riding. I like that it has blue tooth on it as well so I can use my phone and don't have to use my hands to talk or text.

- Melissa H

Convenient and easy to use family vehicle with style.

I love that my vehicle has lots of options for a very reasonable price. I love that I can transport kids without feeling like I'm driving a bus. I wish that kids' car seats were a little easier to install and uninstall.

- Jessica A

The car is a safe ride and very comfortable to be in. The gas mileage is fairly good for the size of the vehicle.

The Kia Sorento is an SUV. It is a family car that can give high luxury if you upkeep the maintenance on it. My only dislike is the amount of malfunction that happens with the computer software that is with this model.

- Chris B

Kia Sorento is the way to go!

I love the gas mileage of my Kia Sorento! It drives like a hybrid but it is not. The safety rating that Kia has been earning is also a top plus for driving this vehicle. It is spacious and classy without being cheap.

- Heather D

when working correctly, it is a good car that is roomy and comfortable

I really like the fact that my car is a suv as it is bigger than my previous car and makes me feel safer in that aspect, however, what i don't like is the fact that i am having major engine issues with it since i got

- Lisa R

Good car overall. No major issues

Haven't had any major issues with this vehicle since I've owned it. I have had to replace the control arm and minor parts but nothing too serious. I have however had problems with the headlights shorting out.

- Tori R

Fuel efficiency is amazing!

My Kia Sorento is extremely fuel efficient, which is surprising for a SUV. I have had no problems to date, and have been completely satisfied. My Sorento is very comfortable to travel in with my family.

- Danielle L

The KIA Sorento is a very reliable and dependable car.

My KIA Sorento is a very reliable vehicle and in the few years I have had the vehicle I have had no major issues just routine maintenance. My family has grown so the car is now too small for my family.

- kindall j

It is very roomy. The seats in the back recline. The is a lot of storage

I bought my vehicle used but I love it. It has the feel of a bigger vehicle. It is very roomy and my kids love it. The back seat reclines so it makes for a comfortable ride when driving long distances

- Amanda B

it's good for size but consider other options for long term use

I like the kia overall but it seems a little poorly put together and I don't think I would buy another one. So far, the ac unit has broken, the driver door is stuck, and the gas tank cover gets stuck.

- Chris W

that it is a newer vehicle then we generally have and it good to have a car available for use

a short loan of a vehicle that belongs to my brother since my spouse and I had no car so as long as there is work we will be using it but it seems to be a good vehicle good on fuel for the size of it

- Wade l

It is a very good car for the money. As long as it doesn't have the same problems we did. But the engine was covered under warranty so it was replaced for free

I like how much room it has on the inside without being a huge vehicle. It has a modern look. We did have to have the engine replaced at about 60000 miles. So that does impact my overall impression.

- Jennette C

Perfect car for a busy athlete/cyclist!

The Sorento has been a great car from day one. Extremely little maintenance and only now starting to need minor replacements. It has a great ride! No plans on replacing this great car any time soon.

- Penny R

It is a lot of quality for a low price.

It did not cost too much. It is very spacious. It is very easy to get in and out of. It doesn't require too much gas. It looks good. Then only bad thing is trying to park it. It is a large vehicle.

- Brenda t

That it has great "get up and go" , very spacious, and safe!

I like the comfort of the seating. I like the amount of space available in the inside. I like the way it drives/rides...very smooth. No complaints other than that I would like better gas mileage.

- Barbie A

May need a lot of different things to fix. Has a big gas tank.

I like that its big and can fit a lot of people and things. I like that the gas tank goes a long way, but not that it takes so much money to fill up. It also seems to break more than others.

- Jessica G

The car gets decent gas mileage.

I like the interior, nice wood grain. I wish there was more room up front feels very squishy no place to put my purse with a passenger. sunroof is nice. Car rides smoothly. Good gas mileage.

I love my Kia and can't wait to pass it on to my daughter. It's been a very dependable car and I feel very safe in it.

- Connie F

The car will start every time no matter what the weather condition.

Car is still performing great after 7 years. When u go in for maintenance; the vehicle is checked completely. Have driven the cars for long distances many of times without any trouble.

It's a good car has a lot of space fits my family of 5. I don't like how easily its scratches on outside also my seat broke a week after I bought it and Kia dealership wouldn't fix it.

My car is reliable and I feel safe in it when I drive.

My Kia Sorento is the best car made and everyone should drive one..except not dark cherry!

It's the best car I have ever driven. Great pick up lots of power. 2 sunroof. Plenty of legroom with a cold away third row of seats. Can drive for hours and never get uncomfortable.

- Laurie G

Comfortable car that gets great gas mileage

Good overall vehicle. Some problems now that I'm over 100,000 miles. Headlights turn off while driving. Steering wheel functions stopped working. Brake lights come on for no reason.

- Randee R

Dependable and a good value

Very reliable. Ride is comfortable, but not luxurious, smooth or quite. Gas mileage is average for an SUV. Like being able to fold down back row to create additional storage space.

- Lisa H

the car has a good safety rating.

I like the look and the styling. I don't like that I had to give up the first one as the bottom rotted out and the problem continues. Kia did not offer people any refund for this.

- Maureen H

Very reliable and does not need much maintenance.

The car has given me very little trouble or maintenance problems other than having to replace the battery. It is well built and trustworthy and I would consider buying a Kia again.

- Cheryl K

It is a very affordable car for what you get. I feel like it has great value.

I like the size of the vehicle for my needs. I like that I sit a little higher than in a car but not too high up. I like that it has a third row for additional seating when needed.

- Shaney L

Reliable, good on gas mileage.

Good on gas, no issues so far, except it has a definite blind spot. When backing up, cannot always see if there is anything there, and warning signal on camera is erratic at times.

- Kathleen C

It is reliable and comfortable to drive. Includes nice features like NAV, 3rd row seating, Infinity sound system.

Love that it has best features of car and truck. Fits in small parking spaces and easy to drive in city but also high clearance and towing capabilities. Price was very nice too.

- Shari L

Great economy car to have if you have 1 or less children.

It is comfortable, but my family is about to outgrow it. We need a larger car so that if we have family or friends around we can take 1 car. It drives smooth. Great gas mileage.

- Jennifer C

I have high mileage and it still runs great.

I love the room for cargo. I like the style of the overall style. I dislike like placement of engine parts. I dislike what is a blind spot on the sides of the front windshield.

- Lynda R

That it is in good condition for a used vehicle with quite a few miles on it.

I like that it is a nice crossover vehicle that I am almost finished paying for. What I dislike about it is the gas mileage. I wish it would be more miles per gallon for gas.

- Denise G

Most people need to know that it is a nice size car for a family but the trunk has a small space if someone depends on the trunk for space. I do put a lot of money into the gas tank to fill it up and it does not have a lot of miles per gallon

I like that my vehicle seats 7 people. What I dislike about the car is that there is no trunk space and in order to fit groceries into the trunk I have to put the 3rd row down

- Jeanette D

It's good for a big family

The lift for the trunk went out, it seats 7 people, middle and back row can let down, has bluetooth for my phone, can use a usb flash drive, and gets good mileage on the road.

- Angelina T

It is very reliable and gets good gas mileage for an SUV.

I like the overall dependability of the vehicle. It has over 120000 miles and has required no major repairs. However, the interior trim and fixtures feel somewhat cheap.

- Andrew W

It's a good car but should be bought used or for a discount. Also replace the windshield because it will chip at the slightest damage and will continue to do so if simply repaired.

Car is alright. Looks nice and has a nice build. But some of the parts are cheaply made such as the windshield and the gas mileage is also not what the dealership claimed.

- Lindsy S

Dependable but cheap interior

Kia has been dependable. No motor issues. The interior plastic has broken a lot. Plastic pieces that go to air vent and plastic inside of door handle keeps breaking off.

- Tela P

It will last a long time.

I like the fact that it is an SUV, which I prefer over coupes or sedans. I dislike that whenever I connect to aux, the sound gets lower. And I like how spacious it is.

There's not a lot of room if you have children or have to have car seats in your car for other reasons.
