You will be happy you bought a Kia!

2011 Kia Sorento LX

My Kia Sorento has a very comfortable ride. It gets very good mileage, and has many features that I enjoy. Because the vehicle sits higher than a car, it's easier to get into and out of the vehicle. I am able to have a better view of the roads and see other vehicles easier. I have not had any mechanical problems with my vehicle, and if I get a notice from Kia about a mechanical problem that has been found, I take my vehicle to a Kia dealership and they always handle the required repair, at no expense to me. I make sure my vehicle gets regular maintenance, and have not had any problems. The seats are comfortable, even on long trips, there is ample leg room, the rear cargo area is spacious.

Critical customer review of the parts and maintenance of the 2011 Kia Sorento.

2011 Kia Sorento LX

The vehicle operates very well. There have been a few manufacture problems on this model: .1. The air condition pump component failed and started leaking on to the front passenger side of the carpet. There was not a recall in this situation. IM y owns one which had the same problem. Fortunately, his 2016 model had a recall and was repaired for free. My vehicle also had two other mechanical upgrades which were recalled. My complaint is that these deficiencies should not have happened. Theses problems should have been resolved before the car had been made and leaving the factory.

- Ronald M

The Kia Sorento 2011, still worth your time.

2011 Kia Sorento LX

The door handles are broken and they are known to break. Other than that it's run great. I have no other complaints about the car. It's roomy, comfy, and great for families. Has a CD player, heated seats, and the back seats fold forward for extra space in the back. The back also has decent storage space that we use often. The spare tire is located underneath the car for aesthetic purposes.

High Depreciation but Nice Features

2011 Kia Sorento LX

I enjoy this vehicle quite a bit. I have remote start, backup camera, sunroof, heated seats, and parking sensors. I wish it had AWD and it would almost be perfect. The worst thing about this vehicle is the amount it depreciates. I also have had to bring it in for quite a bit more maintenance than I wish. My next vehicle will be one that doesn't depreciate and need as much maintenance.

- Kelsey B

This car is worth every penny! Love it!

2011 Kia Sorento LX

This vehicle has been a fantastic purchase. I have experienced very few issues. The biggest issues have pertained to the door locks. There are a few recalls, but no major issues. I experienced issues with the tires when I first bought the car four years ago. I do not like that the spare is so hard to find, but overall this car has been strong and reliable and great for my family!

- Susan W

love that there is enough space to stretch our feet on long drive

2011 Kia Sorento LX

My car is a pretty good car, but it has sensor problems always. It is a gas guzzler. It drives smooth, it is a comfortable drive for my family and I. It is very roomy and enough space for all seven of us. Kids like it. We travel every day in it, and spend four hours every day in it, and we feel safe in it.

- Bernadette C

Slow, gutless family car that is reliable

2011 Kia Sorento LX

We have received a lot of notices regarding needed repairs. Kia does repair them and free of cost, but it's a hassle getting to Kia dealerships to get things fixed that should have been working correctly prior to the vehicle being sold. The car runs well, it's not very powerful, more of a family vehicle.

2011 White Kia Sorento Review

2011 Kia Sorento LX

My vehicle is awesome! I love the space it has and it has never broken down on me. The only problems I have is that the USB charging outlet does not work and hasn't for a while. Other than that, it's the perfect vehicle for me. Kia did an outstanding job designing this vehicle: the 2011 Kia Sorento.

- Tyler T

It's a small SUV, but it works very well.

2011 Kia Sorento LX

Some wiring issues in the steering wheel. My Kia is very reliable, get my children where they need to go and get me to and from work. It is not all that comfortable honestly. I love my backup camera, great safety tool for my family! I wish there was more room in the back seat for my children.

- Shannon R

I love my car and how the features make it lovable!

2011 Kia Sorento LX

I really do not know the reason behind a Kia Sorento being my favorite SUV. But I love my model. I love the back up camera view inside the windshield mirror and my remote start. Some of the features on my model is heated seats, power windows, Bluetooth, aux cord, CD player, and remote start.

- Tia C

Best car ever, you should buy one and buy one now

2011 Kia Sorento LX

It's super safe, you save on gas, lots of trunk space, love the backup camera which you can turn off or on. Lots of airbags so you are super safe in case of an accident. Signal on the mirrors let's others know when you're turning.. perfect! Love being higher up so I can see others :)

- Sonya B

Family vehicle with style.

2011 Kia Sorento LX

Besides the wiring on the headlights constantly melting and having to be replaced, it drives like a dream. Great mileage. Love the heated seats! The backup cam went bad after two years who's had is also disappointing but not a necessity. Looks sleek and is a great family vehicle.

2011 Kia Sorento AWD. Great I'm snow and ice

2011 Kia Sorento LX

No mechanical issues. Runs and drives great. Decent gas mileage. Roomy, lots of storage space. Comfortable to travel in. Can easily fit 3 car seats in back seat. Decent stereo system, Bluetooth is great. Satellite radio, enough room to put a queen size mattress in the back.

- Chris E

Gets very good gas mileage.

2011 Kia Sorento LX

There have been multiple recalls. Plastic parts on the interior of the car break easily. It does have amazing turning radius and hugs the road. Very good on gas. Very peppy. Exterior and interior parts and pieces seem to be made very cheaply. Does have a good warranty.

- Jennifer J

This car is very functional.

2011 Kia Sorento LX

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

Kia Sorento Vehicle review

2011 Kia Sorento LX

Fuse went out causing lights to not work. Handle on driver side door doesn't work. It drives well though and is quite dependable. It's comfortable for road trips. The seats are comfortable. It drives quietly. We use it to go everywhere. I will always buy a Kia

- Becky H

Great car if you don't need anything extra.

2011 Kia Sorento LX

Feel a little cramped. And the back seat stopped folding down a month after I bought it. I like how good on gas it is and how well it drives. Wish the engine was better performing. And the doc only works with apple stuff. Steering controls only with apple stuff.
