Overall wonderful vehicle, some mechanical issues down the road.

Overall I absolutely love my car. We have owned this model vehicle for almost 4 years now and it has always driven smoothly and does well on gas. We have taken this car cross country and on vacation without issues with overheating etc.. The sound system inside is very nice as well as the features within hands reach. I like the overall design of the car. I didn't want to buy a minivan when I became a mom but I also didn't want a gas hog SUV. A few things that I would change about this vehicle would be that I wish the back seat had more room. We are expecting baby #3 and until I test out all three car seats in the back I am not sure they will all fit. Mainly the middle seat in the back. So I would have wanted a larger seating space per seat. Leg room is no issue and the trunk space is great though. We have had a few mechanical issues with this vehicle though recently around 125, 000 miles. We just paid to have a new transmission installed. And we have had to replace the u joint axel in the front right side. Both expensive fixes that I wish hadn't have happened with this vehicle. I want to keep it as long as I can though since I love everything else. But these were definitely surprising issues.

Kia Sorento are the simple, reliable SUV that has character.

Problems: all of the problems I have can be expected with the age of my vehicle (7 years old). The driver heated seat no longer works and can only be fixed by replacing the entire seat--not worth it to me. The hatch hydraulics did go out which required replacement. Performance: I have never had issues with my cars performance. It handles well and responds to operator guidance. It is an average car. Reliability: like I said, I think my car is very reliable. I have just under 100,000 miles and have never had a mechanical issue. I do maintain regular upkeep and I suppose that helps. . Comfort: it is comfortable, I find I have plenty of legroom in the front and middle seats. The third row is tight if you have long legs, but does well in a pinch. It will eliminate all trunk space when used. Features: mine is the base model. I think it has a few 'bonuses' than my previous vehicle (2001) didn't have that make it feel luxurious.

I have had very few problems with it. It is a very reliable vehicle.

My Kia Sorento is a very comfortable car for my family of four, especially on long trips. It has plenty of legroom in the front and middle rows, lots of cup holders and adequate room for everyone’s gear. Everyone feels like they have their own space. There’s even space for our large dog! I love having a third row, but I wish there was a little extra legroom back there. The rear seats are very easy to fold away when we need extra storage space, and they're just as easy to pop backup when we have to pile kids in the third row. It is a very easy car to drive and it handles really well. Overall, I am very happy with the car. I have had it for 7 years and have driven it well over 100, 000 miles. It is been very reliable. When it comes time to replace it, I am going to replace it with another Sorento.

Great family vehicle. Great gas mileage. Overall it has been a dependable car.

This Kia was my first brand new car. It has been a great car for my family. We take many long road vacations and it does great with gas. There have been several major recalls on my Kia. A new motor was put in, new headlight wiring harnesses, and several smaller things like airbag and system updates due to mileage and gas. Kia took great care of me once the recalls were placed. It took 3 months for the new motor but Kia gave me a loaner to drive during this time. I have enjoyed my car greatly and my local Kia has been amazing at taking care of me. The motor problems and headlight issues went on a long time before the recalls were released and this is my downfall with my Kia. I now have 185000 miles and hope she stays running for another 185000.

Regretted purchase of Kia Sorento.

I have had a lot of problems with this car compared to other vehicles. The engine was replaced when the car was 5 years old, the radio died and had to be replaced, there were rust spots on the roof that we complained about multiple times, and the dealer would not do anything about it. Now they are so bad that we need a replacement windshield due to a chip that spread, and the windshield company will not replace the windshield until all the rust is taken care of that is around the windshield. That estimate was around $1000 all of which insurance will not cover. We have had the steering wheel replaced due to the leather flaking off. The car has been in and out of the dealership more times in 6 years than my last 2 cars combined ever have.

My favorite feature is the weights will turn off when you press the lock button.

I have had my Kia Sorento for five years now and never had any issues. I live in Colorado so it is important for me to have a car that does well in the snow and my Sorento kicks butt. I do not have to be worried about slipping and sliding around. I think the seats are comfortable and I travel a lot with my dog and he does great in the back with plenty of space. One feature that I love is the lights will turn on when you press the lock button leaving your car. That is great for me because I was always forgetting to turn my lights off. My Sorento is the smooth ride. I also enjoyed that the seats are really easy to move because my boyfriend is much taller than me and when he drives it is we always have to switch the seats.

- Meagan K

That there was an engine recall but Kia will replace it with no problems.

I absolutely love my Kia Sorento. It is roomy inside with plenty of room in the back as well for the kids. Look and shape of this make and model is more ideal than the newer Sorento's. The car has heated seats 7 airbags, rear view camera which I absolutely love. It is a very reliable car with relatively no real problems except that I had a recall on my engine that Kia replaced with no problems. The only thing is that there is no plug to open and look a the transmissions fluid which I thing is low on my car but I probably need to have checked and flushed. Other than that my favorite car hands down and yes I would purchase again if I had the choice.

2012 Kia Sorento is the perfect family vehicle!

My 2012 Kia Sorento has been a wonderful family vehicle. We have 3 children, 1 in a car seat, 1 in a booster seat, and 1 in a seat belt and they all fit in the 2nd row comfortably. The 3rd row is mainly used for sports equipment and chairs but we can fit quite a bit back there when the seats are down. There have been no major issues with this vehicle. Aside from the occasional flat tire or blinker light replacement it has been a wonderful car. I have no plans to replace it in the near future. My vehicle came with the tow package which came in handy with our cross country move as we were able to hook up our u-haul quite quickly and easily.

- Ashley H

Very ergonomic and comfortable

One major benefit for this car is the amount of storage space it has. You can bend down the seats and store an insanely amount of stuff in there. The mileage is good, around 21 or 22 mpg and engine is super reliable. I have never had a breakdown and the only time it won't start is because I would have to replace the battery. Its super comfortable and spacy for the front and back seat passengers. Although the steering wheel is a little to big for my liking you will get used to it quickly. The gas pedal is touchy while you have to press down a reasonable amount to start breaking. But this is expected from a SUV.

- Matthew V

All wheel drive handles very well in winter.

My Kia is an overall really nice vehicle. The things I really find helpful with everyday driving are the visibility, no major blind spots and the mirrors adjust to different positions based on driving forward or backing up. Having the ability to fold the mirrors inward is nice a ATM's and other drive through services. The all wheel drive has handled very well in Wisconsin winters. Very nice feature is being able to quickly get into your vehicle without having to have your key fob in your hand. The height of the vehicle makes it very easy getting in and out. The ability to cool the driver seat is a nice extra.

- Carrie F

Why I love my 2012 Kia Sorento.

Have enjoyed my Kia Sorento very much. It has great power - all the features - heated seats, air, sunroof, lots of storage, can hold 7 passengers and still have room for some luggage. It is great on trips, very comfortable. It has the large engine which is great on trips. I have over 122,000 miles. 3rd row seats fold down. It is great in my business as I am an interior designer and often time need to transport all types of items, I.E. Samples, furniture (small scale), lighting fixtures, etc. The interior is leather which has held up very well. No major mechanical issues and interior is like new.

- Patricia R

This Kia Sorento is a good reliable vehicle and performs well as far as gas mileage. It is affordable and still offerst the bells and whistles you have come to expect in vehicles of this decade.

The only complaints are more road noise than I am happy with because I have driven Toyota for so long. Toyota is my vehicle of choice, but recent lifestyle changes also required downgrading my vehicle year make and model. Overall the Kia is a reliable vehicle and offers most of the same conveniences I am accustomed to. Toyota seems "tighter" and you do not normally hear any rattles, or wind around closed windows and certainly most important - the noise from the undercarriage. Most people are not concerned with noise, so I know that I just was not familiar with any other models nor what to expect.

- Rhae K

Reliable with good features.

I have loved this car so far. It was not purchased new so the issues I have had are reasonable for the wear and tear. It has heated and cooled seats (cooling only on driver side), has a sunroof and a moonroof, and greet sync features throughout the car for temperature controls. It has always been reliable, and reports show that it is pretty safe as well in crash outcomes (do not quote me on that though). The only downside is that as a part-time worker, repairs due to having electrical side mirrors and other items can get pricey but that's what you get for a car with more features.

- Elizabeth A

The best car to purchase is a Kia Sorento.

The 2012 Kia Sorento is on average a very reliable car. This vehicle has all wheel drive. It drives perfectly in the snow. It is able to pull a hill. It is very comfortable. It has 3 row seats to seat a large family. It was covered by a very good warranty for up to 1000. 000 miles. I purchased the car with 50. 0000 miles. The warranty literally rebuilt the entire engine and other parts on the car. The car now has 80. 000 miles. I am happy to be the 2nd owner. I just really love this car. You will too if you purchase it.

- Thomas B

Finally, a nice looking economy car

The Kia Sorento gets great gas mileage and handles really well. There are multiple seat adjustments much more than other vehicles I have driven. I am able to select different driving mode. Economy and sport are among the options. The Sorento is also all wheel drive and has a backup camera. I would like it if it had a cigarette lighter but it does have 4 power ports. With its sleek look and great stereo (with alternate dash controls), great handling, and reliability, Kia Sorento is a great vehicle for the money

- James G

Great price for what you get.

Since I have owned my 2012 Kia Sorento the I have only had two problems. The first problem I have had is the key fob not always working even after replacing the battery. The other problem is the back up camera not always working and turning on, but I love this feature when it works. I love the heated seats in the front and the choice of ac and heat vents in the back. I love the option for the second row in the back, but I wish there was more leg room for those passengers.

- Megan K

A reliable & comfortable car for the whole family.

I haven't had any serious problems with my car in the 2 years that I have had it. The seats are comfortable & there's plenty of space for other passengers. It has been really reliable. I have drove it back and forth to Florida from north Carolina at least 5 or more times with no issues as long as I do regular oil changes. I love that my car has the Bluetooth function in it so I am able to make calls hands-free and listen to music off of my phone while driving.

- Nadia T

Great family car: adjustable to any situation.

No problems, great performance, great gas mileage. Leather interior, heated seats/ steering wheel. GPS and Sirius featured. Bluetooth speaker. Great reliability, handles all terrain very well including large amounts of snow and rain. Very trustworthy car. Has minor problems with alarms and I believe some were recalled a few years ago but not many problems have been seen since with this vehicle. It is a great family car and can seat 7 people very comfortably.

- Mandy W

My experience with new Kia Sorento. All black interior and electronic updates.

The current vehicle that I have is great so far, I have only had it for only 10 days. The previous car was a 2011 Kia Sorento, and I discovered it was in a flood and the oil changes I was supposed to be getting from the dealer I purchased the car from used the incorrect oil that I got motor damage. Otherwise, I like the car thus far. It has served me well. No complaints. But I would rather have a Jeep Laredo, which I previously owned before this Kia.

- Dorothy T

My Kia. A wonderful & dependable vehicle. 100, 000 miles & still going strong.

I have been driving my Kia Sorento since 2011. To date the only problem I have had, other than the usual wear, is my power steering pump went out and I had to replace it. This was after 100, 000 miles. I love the fact that all the back seat lay down which allows me to fit larger items in it. I have the model that has three rows of seats that allow me to have seven people riding. If I ever decide to get another vehicle it will be a Kia Sorento.

- Nore E

Happy Kiya driving Soccer Mom

I purchased my 2012 Kia Sorento in 2015 with about 30k miles. I am a mom of two and one of my kids still use a car seat. The car offers enough space for my children. The trunk is roomy enough to keep our stroller in even if we go stock up on groceries. I do wish it was more gas efficient. I haven't had mechanical issues until now. Kia is very accommodating for any recalls the car has had. They recently installed a new engine due to a recall.

- Natalie S

This car is great for family activities and kids sporting events!

Kia Sorento. This SUV has been super reliable economical and given us no problems. I love it and will get another when it's time. We have had zero problems. The gas mileage is great for an SUV. We've taken it on multiple trips and consistently use it as our main car for sports kids pickups drop offs and family activities. We've now owned it for over five years and besides normal wear and tear we have only had minor problems.

- Chris J

Kia Sorento is the perfect vehicle.

I love this car! It is incredibly spacious, yet easy to maneuver for being a SUV. The heated seats are an added bonus as well as the many airbags throughout the vehicle. You are able to connect your mobile device to the Bluetooth, so you can perform hands-free calling as well as playing music from your phone. The backup camera that appears in the rearview mirror when in reverse is additionally one of the best features.

- Madison M

Review my Kia Sorento 12.

Nothing wrong so far, pretty reliable car. I purchased it used and the only thing I have done is brakes and rotors on it. I have changed the tires and oil on a regular maintenance schedule. If is really good in the snow, a heavy reliable SUV. I would consider purchasing or leasing another in the future. Only one thing I do not like, no one in my area services them. I have to travel to Bangor for any major recalls.

- Brenda D

Love how my white vehicle has a reverse camera, allows me to have a better look.

Love my vehicle, I have always liked big cars and because of my baby having to carry a stroller, baby bag, car seat etc. this car works great for my family and I. About complains, I do not have any complaint about my vehicle. Has been working great since day one! Second hand but like new. Also love how I was able to move from my old house to the new one with this. Didn't have to get a truck! Which is perfect.

- Rivera O

Family friendly, and interesting sport features for parents.

The only issue I would have, is I cannot lock my doors and have the car running. For example if I needed to run and put gas in the car, I cannot leave the ac on while I go give the teller cash for my dog/children. Love the performances and reliability! It is very comfortable and works perfect for my growing family. Having three rows it very helpful and the car interior has kept up all the years we've had it!

- Miranda H

Star of the economical car, Kia Sorento!

The SOrrento is a perfect size car for our family of 5. It has a lot of bells and whistles that more expensive brands charge extra for, such as moonroof, electric seats and backup camera in the rearview mirror. The only problem I encounter is the keyless function. If you forget the key fob in the vehicle, it locks you out. Which makes it very hard to call your spouse to being the extra one to save you!

- gina k

I love my Kia Sorento and it's my favorite vehicle.

I love my 2012 Kia Sorento. I enjoy the fact that I sit up high and not law to the ground like in a car, my favorite feature is the backup camera. It goes out from time to time but I cannot imagine driving a vehicle without it. My Kia also has heated seats which is good during the winter months. My only complaint is that it does not have a sunroof. It's good on gas, comfortable and easy to drive.

- Tanya F

By owning my Kia is enjoyable

The outside of the car has beautiful lines inside is pure comfort. I just like all of the things I've mentioned the one- I have found is I'm relatively short 5-3 and have difficulty seeing over the steering wheel I need to sit on a cushion so that I have a clear view that's another thing I don't need extra mirrors I don't need anything to see I don't have blind spots the sky was beautiful

- Norma F

2012 4 cylinder Kia Sorento.

I highly recommend a 4 cylinder Kia sorento. It has fantastic gas mileage because of the smaller engine. Seats 5 comfortably with plenty of cargo room in the rear. . Because the sorento sits so high the vehicle has a lot of clearance which is helpful in northeast. This particular model is only 2 wheel drive. The extra clearance and weight help this vehicle travel through snow with ease.

- Kirsten L

It has 3rd row, backup camera, navigation, leather heated seats panorama sunroof.

I love my Kia Sorento. It handles amazing in the snow during the winter. It has awesome pick up on speed. I definitely do not feel like I am driving a SUV. My car is very luxurious inside. I feel like I am driving a more expensive car. I am in love with my panorama sunroof. Only complaint I have is I wish the trunk was bigger. When the 3rd row is up there really is not much trunk space.

- Nicole C

The 4 cylinder engine is powerful yet economically.

My Sorento is one of the most comfortable cars I ever owned. It is roomy, easy to drive and looks great. I get as much as 35 miles per gallon on trips and around 18 mpgs around town. The vehicle is very dependable in all types of weather with regular maintenance. Other than normal parts wear out, such as tires and brakes, I have spent little on this car. I would recommend it to anyone.

- Larry G

Great family vehicle! Definitely recommend

I highly enjoy my Kia Sorento, I have a 4 year old and three dogs and it's spacious enough for all of us when we need it! My only problem is there is a recall on the front headlight harness... replaced the bulb many times before being notified of a recall, but I just need to make the appointment at Kia and it will be fixed, which is nice to know. Overall, great family car. I love it!

- Leah Y

Kia Sorento the best SUV for families

It's an amazing SUV. it has taken me all over the west coast. From New Mexico to California to Alaska and back to Washington. I have had it since 2012 and have barely ever had to take it in the shop for repairs. The only thing I don't really like about it is that it is a roll hazardous vehicle and can tumble and flip over easier than other cars. So be careful while traveling.

- Jasmine W

Not a long term family vehicle

I have found that we are outgrowing the vehicle as my kids get older. Not much in the front and back seats, but the trunk does have a decent amount of space. We have never had an issue with trunk space. I have had a lot of electrical issues. I don't think my car phone charging port has ever worked and most recently my seat warmers and blinkers/headlights are having issues.

- Amanda H

Very comfy but needs better access to 3rd row

The USB port stopped working within a few months if having the car. It was a great feature so I could charge my phone. Overall the car is very roomy and lots of space to move stuff around. Third row is very difficult to access and makes it very difficult for people to get in and out of the car. The car handles pretty well too. No major issues or concerns. I

- Rachel P

My car gets good gas mileage and is very responsive.

I enjoy the flexibility to seat 7 people instead of 5 when necessary, although the leg room on the 3rd row is better suited for children or small adults. The car is comfortable and easy to maneuver. I have leather seats that are very attractive but they do get quite hot in the summer. I also love the sunroof. I have not had any major problems with my vehicle.

- yvonne h

Happy with Kia Sorento reliability.

I haven't had any significant problems with the vehicle. It is easy to drive and has plenty of great features such as Bluetooth, heated seats, and a backup camera. It comfortably fits at least four people. The leg room in the back row is not great, so any more than four or five people would not be comfortable. It is very reliable and has never broken down.

- Erin M

Has a lot of extras like rear camera but it doesn't always work unfortunately.

It has heated front seats, and dual climate settings for driver and passenger. It also has rear backup camera that works sometimes and sometimes not. It has hands free options for calls. The back seat has its own air conditioning and it has third row seats and a second sun roof. The air conditioner goes in and out so it's best to leave it on full blast.

- Kelly L

My family car save ours money on road trips. .

Hi, my Kia 2012 Sorento ex was buy to be a family. Car. Everybody know how this mean, busy work schedule, kid school, after school classes and weekends and holidays trips. We love ours SUV because is very comfortable, economic about gas, and with a steady well maintenance we never have any problems. We love it and we always recommend to ours friends. .

- Beatrice F

Plenty of room for kids and stuff.

My husband and I bought the vehicle used in 2016 because we needed something slightly bigger for our growing family. It fits our two children and all the stuff we need for our camping trips no problem. We have had no maintenance issues with the vehicle in more than 2 years. If we had to make the decision over again we would make the same choice.

- Carrie B

Not a great third row option.

My car drives great and is decent on gas. The only thing I dislike about my car is the tiny space that the third row gives you. The third row seating when up gives you no cargo space in the back, and is also not easily accessible from the front seats. This car definitely should not have a third row because there is just not enough room for it.

- Brooke S

Sleek family vehicle, that will travel anywhere.

Very reliable, love the 3rd row seating option, and great on gas. All wheel drive so it goes great in all weather conditions. Sleek design, comfortable seating, and ample trunk space. Roof rack makes hauling much easier for vacations. Love the blue color I selected, and service from Kia dealer is top notch! We will be Kia owners for life.

- Hannah O

Why I love my Kia Sorento and why it's the best.

I really enjoy my 2012 Kia Sorento. It's good on gas and very roomy. I wish it have a sunroof and keyless start but other than that I enjoy my Kia. It also has the back up cam which I really have enjoyed and cant drive without it. It's supposed to seat 5 but 4 people fit comfortably. I would purchase another Kia if given the chance.

- Tanya F

Kia warranty is amazing!!

The car is great. It has Bluetooth and Sirius capabilities. Kia extended warranty has been a lifesaver!! There have been a lot of recalls. . . But Kia has been great fixing it each time!! There is a ton of space inside the car. . . And great little compartments. The warrantee is what would make me really recommend a Kia for life.

- Mary F

Heavy vehicle, poor ride and poor mpg.

The SUV is a solid vehicle but there are issues I did not expect. Gas mileage is very poor. The stereo system is below average and the worst part is the handling in the winter. Very bad traction on snow and ice. With less than 80k miles on it, some of the numerous repairs I have made in the last month should not have occurred.

- Keith S

Love my dependable Kia Sorento

Very dependable, quiet, enough room for two toddler seats and one infant car seat. Big trunk and the carpet comes up and you have more storage underneath. I would definitely recommend this vehicle. Speakers work good with bass(if you choose) , the eco does turn off but helps with mileage. It can go from automatic manual also.

- Tree C

Owning a Kia Sorento-Great car but not so great for tall children

I enjoy the vehicle..but it is not going to be a long term care for families with tall people. The car is good on gas and we don't really have any issues. We definitely would have liked a car with more leg and foot room as well as push button start. I would recommend it for small families or those who have shorter children

- Kim C

all around good car; reasonably priced, comfortable drive, not many bells and whistles

It has a good size and the seats can fold down or stay up for passengers. I use it to transport large items when the seats are down. The mileage per gallon is decent and has consistently remained that way through ownership today. I have has minimal problems and repairs that are needed other than the regular maintenance

- larissa l

My SUV is AWD which is great for the winter months.

I absolutely love that my Sorento has just about everything. It is fully loaded. I like that it has 3 rows. I do not like how cramped the vehicle is now after having more kids. I need something bigger. I wish it had blind spot detection on mirrors. I love that its leather interior and heated seats for the winter time.

- Amanda S

The space in the trunk of the car is good for loading the car down for the road.

This vehicle is not quiet in cab when driving. Has a lot of noise that comes from the doors. I would like the ac to be cooler and the engine to be faster. Size of the vehicle is good for a smaller family. Speakers system could be louder. The downside to this car is the overall performance of quietness in the vehicle.

- Marcy M

My car had some nice features upon buying it. Currently it is running better.

It has had many maintenance issues especially since after the warranty was done. There were so many repairs I cannot even listen ball of the issues. I wouldn't recommend the car. Currently even the automatic key does not work anymore and the window is broken. Not to mention that just had to replace brakes again.

- Jennifer L

Perfect for long trips and grandchildren.

I have the ex model which has electric seats, seat warmers, roof rack, infinity speakers, built in navigation, backup camera, satellite radio, and 3rd row seating. A large gas tank and comfortable ride helps on our long trips. After having the car for 4 years, I have only had to replace the tires and the brakes.

- Debbie D

The interior is well appointed.

I would purchase this car at any time. It has been very reliable after the engine - which blew- was replaced free of charge by the Kia dealership. The handles on the left side front door broke but it has now been fixed. Have not checked whether is was a manufacturing defect or now. Good mileage - very reliable.

- James L

don't buy a Kia! The vehicles are poorly made.

It is poorly made. I have had to have it painted and the interior is starting to tear on the seats. I have had to take it to dealership twice for faulty brake problems. I have notified Kia about these issues and their only solution is for me repurchase another vehicle. I will never buy anything else from Kia.

- Marie D

Great vehicle, excellent mileage and unbelievable warranty.

I love my Sorento. We have had no problems other than a recall which was well managed by the dealership. We are actively thinking about our next Kia Sorento because we love this one so much. Great mileage, comfortable, low upkeep and a fantastic warranty of 100, 000. Miles, though we have never had to use it.

- Sharon H

Great family car that doesn't drink too much gas

I enjoy the room in the front seat area. The back seat is small for an SUV. I would have loved a third row but the trunk space is awesome. The radio is easy to use and simple. It also hooks up to USB and aux. or you can stream via Bluetooth. There is a tiny pocket under the console that I like for my phone.

- Kelly B

Reliability & performance.

It is a comfortable family car. I wish I had a third row seating car. The Kia Sorento does real well as a long trip car. The only issue I have had with the car is since I bought it I had an issue with the struts and sway bar links. I finally got them replaced after having the car for a little of a year now.

- Breanna S

Kia features, welcome to the Kia world only have driven gm vehicles.

Heated leather seats, heated steering wheel, sunroof and moonroof, v6 engine lots of get up and go great for merging in city traffic, automatic tinted mirror, power windows, back -up camera, all wheel drive, navigation system, cup holders, third row seating, cooled leather driver seat, Bluetooth capable.

- Samantha L

Reliable, safe, and a car I can be proud of.

I have never had a problem with my car. It is the perfect size, performs well, and is super safe. My only thing is the design of the inside. I do not like the seats, especially because it easily gets water stains and is difficult to come out. But overall I would have to say I am satisfied with my car.

- Maria F

It is a mid size SUV Kia Sorento. It is great for the entire family.

I like the look and technology features. I wish the engine was more quieter. I wish it didn't have to make a engine sound when I press on the gas pedal. The backup camera is the best feature. It has comes with Sirius xm radio if I want to pay for an additional cost. Overall it is a pretty good car.

- Renee A

Third row seating if needed!

This Kia has had many recalls but all cost covered and repaired without problems. Sorento is reliable, I feel safe and secure driving it. Limited visibility/blind spot due to structure of front of vehicle. Customization options are satisfactory such as heated seats, backup camera, and sunroof.

- Rachel F

My Kia makes me feel comfortable driving with my family.

Having a lot of recalls and a lot of expensive problems all at once. Other than the maintenance problems I am having, I love the car. It has plenty of space and drives smooth. I love having the option of third row seating and I love the amount of space the back has when the third row is down.

- Kristen M

Family car makes a great car.

I absolutely love my car! It is a great car if you have kids as well. There is ton of room in the back! I also enjoy that there is Bluetooth it makes it easier to talk on the phone and to do a lot of the features hands free. The most important part is that it is great on gas and eco friendly.

- Shay M

Low maintenance vehicle capable of all terrains for an everyday vehicle.

I bought my vehicle used with 72, 000 miles on it. I have had the vehicle for 2 years and use it as a daily work commute vehicle as well as for road trips on the weekends. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. The car is comfortable for long rides and the maintenance has been manageable.

- Audrey O

Love the model really fun when traveling on road trips a great family or group.

It doesn't use up a lot of gas and maintenance is not costly. It is really spacious and comfortable. The controls are good and no problems when switching gears. Rarely have issues with it and it is a great family car. Also it is easy the pack luggage and other stuff in the car very convenient

One thing I really like about my SUV, is the a/c vents in the back seat.

The only issue I currently have with my 2012 Kia Sorento, is the front part of the headrest just broke. I have to take time out of my day to take it to get fixed now. I do wish the seats were powered instead of having just the handles. And I should have gone with leather instead of cloth.

Great Buy For Small Family

It is a great size car. We enjoy taking it on long road trips due to the spaciousness. We are, however, adding in a second car seat and it will be a tight fit in the middle row. Thankfully, we have the third row option we can use if need be. Wonderful starter vehicle for a small family.

- Molly S

It's a great family car, and very smooth drive.

I love my car, it drives great. It needs a car wash and oil change currently. But it's a great family car. We take this on our road trips and to visit family. Very roomy. It's a lovely look and feel. I think most people would be into driving this. Especially if you have little ones.

- Shannon W

Total package vehicle that makes me want to buy another Kia.

My SUV is very comfortable but seems smaller than I expected. It is great to drive. The engine is quiet and has power to pick up as needed when driving. The third row of seating provides portability. The dual heated seats are helpful and I like that the drivers side seat cools.

- Annette B

Spacious and great gas mileage

I love my Kia Sorento. It is just the right size for my family of 4. My husband is a tall guy at 6'4' and he has to let the seat all the way back when he drives and my oldest son still has plenty of legroom and he is over 4 feet tall at age 9. Another positive very good on gas.

- Joy L

The space inside the vehicle is nice. It is very roomy. We can fit all three kids in the back and they aren't crammed inside the car.

I love my vehicle because of how spacious it is. There is a lot of trunk room, which is nice because we have 3 kids. My only dislike is that when you turn the wheel the car vibrates. We've taken it back 3 times and they have not been able to fix it or even figure out the cause.

- Wendy S

It has been a good car with the exception of a few electrical problems.

I've experienced some electrical issues. Had to spend a fortune to fix it. There was a recall for some part once but I don't recall what it was. Other than that it's a great vehicle. It gets good gas mileage. It has a lot of nice features. It's the perfect size for our family

- Jamie M

A Kia Sorento is comfortable and has plenty room. Only a few minor problems.

The problems that I have had are: we had to put a new starter in. The gas cover will not open with the button, I took it back to the dealer and they supposedly fixed it, but it only worked for a couple of months. But I like it because it is comfortable and has plenty of room.

- Alma C

2012 Kia Sorento is the best SUV available.

I love this car. It has had no major problems since I have got it. Drives great. It is not too bad on gas. Has a sunroof. Fits my entire 6 person family plus one other person. I love the leather seats and seat warming option. This probably the best vehicle I have ever owned.

- Robert C

It is a good mid size SUV with decent mileage and fun to drive.

It is a good vehicle overall. It is comfortable and easy to drive. It has pretty good pick up. I would like a little more room in the back seat- with a car seat & booster seat, it is very difficult to fit a third person in the back. Better gas mileage would also be nice.

- Allison R

Great ride, but some annoying problems.

My Kia Sorento great, however the air conditioner has issues that even the dealer was guessing on how to fix. It's a comfortable car and the drive is smooth. When trying to flip the third row seating back and forth it jams as well, thankfully we don't have to do that often.

- Carrie A

For an SUV, it provides good gas mileage while maintaining the safety of your family.

It's a reliable car that I feel safe transporting by 2.5 year old son around in. It has decent cargo space and has bluetooth as well as satellite radio built in. There are steering wheel controls for ease of access. The main issue I have is that there is no back up camera.

- Randy V

Plenty of leg and head room

Cons: washer fluid pump and lines, headlight encasing- wears out quickly Pros- excellent electrical, cooling, and mechanical systems, polyfiber seats. Absolutely love this car! The AWD and all lock systems are amazing! Plenty of storage space and excellent for road trips

- Danielle B

Kia Sorento, be Leary of problems.

It has had the transmission go out the heat and air doesn't blow. When everything is working right it's a good vehicle with good mileage. It handles very well but I do regret purchasing this vehicle. In the future I believe that I will stick with an American made product.

- Terry M

My vehicle looks amazing and drives smoothly

I really like my car but there are few problems. First the paint comes off pretty quickly so that means that you must be extra careful around your vehicle. Also, on my Kia the handle fell off because my child pulled it way to hard so try to be really gentle with the car.

- Samuel C

Not bulky but plenty of space with good gas mileage.

The vehicle has plenty of space that holds 8 people total. The seats are also all leather and power seats. The 4 rear seats fold down to make plenty of space if needed. The gas mileage is good for this v6 engine. The car has plenty of space but isn't too bulky to drive..

- Ivy D

2012 Kia Sorento, AWD, seats 8.

I like my car because it is all wheel drive, and seats 8 which is convenient because I have a large family. It is not a luxury vehicle however so I miss certain things like heated seats, back up camera, maybe leather seats. But other than that it has been a good vehicle.

- Mandy B

It is one of the safest SUVs on the market with a lot of cabin space.

I actually really like the car that I have right now. I have always had SUV's and this is one of the safest on the market. I purchased this one in particular because it is all wheel drive (which I need for winters in Michigan) and also gets good gas mileage for Its size.

- Michelle B

I just highlighted the interesting details in my previous answer.

I love my Kia. It drives smoothly, has three rows of seating, Sirius radio and backup camera. It gets good gas mileage. I love my sunroof and moonroof. It has a lot of extras. I have not had any problems with my Kia whatsoever. I love the leather seats and seat warmers.

- Allison S

Great vehicle. Not so great service.

The Sorento is an extremely comfortable vehicle. Large cargo space. Third row seating. Issues, sunroof switch broke. Difficult to get Kia dealer to check recall issues. Having to go back again for the same issue. Service representative was very rude and condescending.

- Mitch B

Likes and dislikes. Pros and cons.

I like it because it is higher up than a car. I wish it had 3rd row seating. I like my vehicle but need more room for more passengers. I like the maroon color. Bluetooth is great, Sirius radio is best. I just need a bigger like vehicle. Power everything is great too.

- Amy S

Sorento is great for families or if needing a car with lots of space

I love the space and room in the SUV. The Sorento is very reliable and is great on gas mileage. Perfect for a family care or just to drive back and forth to work which I do both. The third row is great for families and folds down very easily to give you more space

- Cynthia P

Classy, comfortable, drives great and has just enough features

Love it. Its classy and comfortable. Drives great. Has heated seats which are great in cold weather. Bluetooth connection for phones hands free driving. Decent sound system. Love the red lighting around the sound system at night. Back up camera is awesome as well.

- Pam P

Comfortable and stylish vehicle

Love this vehicle gas mileage is good as well as comfort in driving. Leather interior is soft and easy to clean. Lots of space in SUV as well sound system is good, screen displays information clearly. GPS system is a little outdated but I enjoy my vehicle overall

- Jackie S

Reliable 2012 Kia Sorento

I have owned my Sorento for 8 years and it has been very reliable. I have had very few repairs, I have had to fix an air conditioning part, and just had my suspension done. It's a great size and is comfortable for our family of four. The cargo space is excellent.

- Shelly M

Great family car! Very spacious!

I've had this vehicle for over a year and have had NO problems with it! It's roomy, drives nice, and is perfect for my family. It can fit enough stuff for trips or Girl Scouts, and the third seat is great for bringing friends with us on our road trip adventures!

- Alexis W

The vehicle is large enough to fit 5 people very good for road trips.

This car is very reliable!! Great gas mileage & very spacious. Only problem I have had is with the sensor lights in the dash being broken. This car has taken me cross country & never shown any real problems and has been very good and enjoyable to drive.

- Sylvia C

This is a vehicle for road trips.

The engine had to be replaced. That is the only issue I have had. It was a recall issue. This car is comfortable and controls well in the snow. I love the design of it and the radio works really well. Your adjustments for the radio can make it sound excellent.

- Dawn A

It is a nice dark olive green and has Bluetooth and satellite radio nice tires.

It is a reliable vehicle it never broke down on me over the years I have had it and has about 140,000 miles on it now. The vehicle is a good height and drives very well a smooth ride for miles you can drive a whole day to another state with no problems at all.

- Ryan O

Overall A Good Reliable Vehicle

Very reliable car. Haven't had any major issues to fix yet, and still covered under powertrain warranty. Somewhat tight in very back seat (in 3rd row), but useful to have extra seating when needed. Decent gas mileage, but obviously not as good as a small car.

- Jennifer G

Heated and air condition front seat

I love my Sorento , it's very dependable and very comfortable. Very luxurious. And looks good. It has heated front seats and the driver seat has air conditioning. Front and rear sunroof . Has backup camera , GPS and option for satellite radio, am , FM radio .

- Tammy M

I Love my Kia Sorento (2012)

Love my Kia Sorento, it's comfortable to drive and ride in. Roomy enough for my dogs and yet don't feel like I'm driving an SUV. I haven't had any mechanical troubles. I keep up routine maintenance, and try to keep it happy. No bad things to say yet about it.

- Anna Q

My vehicle is a SUV. I enjoy having this vehicle because it is very roomy

Great vehicle it is good on gas and very reliable and gas great space inside. Very easy to maintain and the upkeep is easy. Roomy inside for travel and if you have other people in the care with you. Good price compared to other SUVs that are the same price .

- Gregg H

This car is rated safe and handles very nicely on the road. Great visibility.

Love our Kia! It has been a great car to drive and handles very well. V8 engine is perfect it has great get go never moving slow uphill. Plenty of space for road trips. No major issues and drives smooth and quiet. Great options leather seat and heated seats.

- Mariana B

The car is a great buy I purchased it used.

It has a chatter in the engine not sure what that it but it is a good running car. Good on gas and does not look bad either. Car has lots of space with the new babies I need to carry and the radio has features that I still do not know how to use to this day.

- Bena P

Reliable comfortable dependable.

I have no complaints has always been a reliable car have gone on many trips and have been comfortable and so have the passengers. Would definitely recommend this vehicle to anyone. For long life just make sure to keep up with the maintenance on the car.

- Eileen K

Air from above! Love the sunroof.

I actually love my SUV. It has been very reliable. There was a recall on 2012 Sorento's but mine was checked and it was fine. I have only needed to get new tires, no issues so far that need repairs. It has a sunroof which is really cool. Great vehicle.

- Jan G

It is high enough off the ground.

My car is very comfortable. It sits up high enough that you don't feel like your driving on the ground. The trunk area is very spacious. There is plenty of room for 5 people. The radio sounds very good too. The air conditioning will freeze you out.

- Penny G

The 100k bumper to bumper warranty. It is so important especially for moms that want to make sure they are taken care of.

I love it's warranty. I also love that I have had zero problems with it aside from the fuel pump going out which was quickly replaced. The service has been impeccable. The only thing I don't care for is the back up camera chooses when it wants to work

- Jill H

I love my Kia- perfect size for families with children.

My Kia is the perfect size for transporting kids to school activities- not an oversized SUV or a regular sized car. It has plenty of space (3 rows) which in total holds 8-10 people. I take my car in for regular service with minimal maintenance issues.

- L G

Lots of different features to give you the exact vehicle you want for the comfort and price levels you need!

I really enjoy my vehicle! It's the first SUV I've owned. I love that it has a 3rd row - but I can lay down the back row, so I have more cargo space. Minus the engine failure recall from 2017/2018, I've been happy with performance and reliability.

- Kellie M

I have had not mechanical issues with it so far. The front wheel drive traction isn't the best, the tires spin easily. The stereo is pretty decent.

I like the room and stereo. The roof rack is very handy. The gas mileage isn't as good as it could or should be though it is adequately powered. The internal noise is a bit bothersome. It seems to be cause from the internal molding and hardware.

- kevin m

I did buy a four cylinder and I know the next time I would be a six cylinder just for more power. Other than that it gets good gas mileage for me.

I love my vehicle. It is mid-size and AWD just the perfect size for me. It runs great and haven't had any problems with it. The regular maintenance is done and anytime there is a recall I take it in for that recall. Yes I would purchase another one.

- Linda F

Very awesome vehicle. I get very admiring looks whenever I drive anywhere.

The Sorrento is a very trustworthy vehicle. I have not had any problems with it and it gets very good gas mileage. There is plenty of legroom in the front and back seats. It has ample storage space. It is easy to get in and out of and easy to drive.

- Angela G

Kia Sorento is a great family car and safe vehicle.

I love the heated seats! The only thing that is disappointing is that I am now experiencing issues with my radio, my heating element for the driver seat and my master window control switch. All those need to be replaced. But I have no other issues.

- Jennifer B

It runs great, has never broken down and gets you where you need to go in comfort.

Car is safe, reliable and has held together pretty well even after thousands of miles. The seats are comfortable and the sound system sounds great. After such a long time, the axle is starting to squeak but it's nothing that can't be easily fixed.

- Danny M

Kia Sorento highlights comfort, safety, and tech compatibility.

I love the tech features, including bluetooth connection to my phone. I was also sold on the heated seats. I like the size compared to my old car. This one is bigger, but still drives like a large sedan or compact SUV. It has great handling.

- Kristina R

That is drives, and rides, very comfortably. Good on gas, too.

Rides really nice. Drove to Midwest and NC several years ago and it was fantastic! Dislike it doesn't have an interior thermostat for external temperature. Love the exterior color - Snow White Pearl. Wish it has a sunroof and a tow package.

- Carla C

Solid SUV with good gas mileage and plenty of storage

My Sorento has been a very reliable car. Good gas mileage and it got me across the country when I took a road trip from coast to coast! Comfortable and not too bulky like other large SUVs and I appreciate the large amount of storage available.

- Abraham F

It is very dependable and made for a family. It is a great car if you don't want a minivan.

It runs very well and has been very dependable. The only issue was at the time of purchase. The engine had metal shavings in it and needed to be replaced. Kia has not problems replacing the entire engine. The dealership was the issue.

- Alyson M

Kia has outstanding safety features that make the brand a must for families with children.

I love my vehicle. It's actually very roomy and I love the safety features. My only complaints are some of the "luxury" features that we are missing. We don't have automatic lights and we also don't have defrosters on our side mirrors.

- Vicki G

The one most important thing people should know about my car is that Kias have a great track record for reliability/customer satisfaction.

I like the dependability of my vehicle. The gas mileage is not too bad either. I do not like the fact that the power ports do not have power if the vehicle is off. Also, the vehicle has cloth seats and they are a pain to keep clean!

- Lynn G

The most interesting thing I love are all of the safety features like the reverse camera and the beeping

My Kia Sorento has very comfortable seats, major space in the trunk and back. Has sheared seats , and a back reversing camera so you can see other cars behind you. It also beeps at you when you are too close to another vehicle

- Elizabeth B

It is really comfortable on long drives, it gets good gas mileage and it is a great family car.

We drove our Kia from California to Georgia and it is a wonderful car on long trips. It has enough room for 3 children two adults and our two dogs. It is just a wonderful car to drive. I would not change anything about it.

- Rimbey S

Lots of space and very comfortable to drive

I love how much space I have in the trunk to transport things. It also handles really nice and is easy to drive. It is not as sleek looking as some of the other midsize SUV crossovers and the gas mileage is not as good.

- Veronica H

This is a great family car, even for our large family.

The Kia has a very short turning radius, so it is easy to park for such a spacious car. The back seats are easy to put up and down making it great for hauling stuff. I love the rear view screen for parallel parking.

- Mary C

Love my Sorento, wouldn't be caught in something else.

I love my Sorento. It is roomy and spacious, has a lot of trunk space. It handles well and I have never had any issues with it. The features are wonderful, I love the displays and how customizable our trip can be.

- Delfina B

It handles well, easy to work on, but may have possible electrical issues.

I like how the car handles, and how high it is off the ground. However, I dislike the constant electrical issues with the car. The backup camera doesn't always work and recently the radio will turn off and on.

- Rafal S

It came with a great warranty. Kia has been good to stand by it (most of the time).

Pretty good vehicle overall. It does not get the gas mileage that was advertised when we purchased it but not too bad. Next time, we want a little more room in the vehicle, probably will go with a bigger model.

- net K

It is very dependable and has given absolutely no problems at all during the 5 years I have been driving it.

I like the size and the versatility of it. It's large enough for our family plus 1 or 2, yet small enough to not be a gas guzzler. Handles well. Wish it had a little more zip to it, but it is very dependable.

- Karen C

It's very dependable, fuel efficient and spacious.

I love the amount of space and that it is easy to get in and out of. There is a lot of storage and it fits my family and our dogs well. Does great on gas considering the size. I wish it had heated seats!

- Shelby A

It was rated one of the safest vehicles of its year, size and class.

I like the size for everyday use. The gas mileage is not very economical or accurate from what they advertise. It has had several recalls, many electrical issues and engine and dash lights always on.

- Karen S

It's the third Kia that I have owned. I believe they make a quality product for a reasonable price

I like the size and comfort of the ride. The price paid for the vehicle was also a positive. I dislike that the backup camera is part of the rear view mirror. I also would like to get better mileage

- Kelly A

My Kia Sorento has been reliable and efficient for me for over four years now.

I love that this SUV has good gas mileage and third row seating. It is perfect for hauling around my kids and groceries. I also like that it looks sleek and expensive even though it is affordable.

- Natalie M

Nothing really. It is just great and so easy to drive

I love the Kia Sorento. It is great to drive and gets great gas mileage. Our family fits perfect in in it. The only thing I dislike is there is not much trunk room with the third row seats up.

- Renee M

It is dependable and the price is decent.

I like that it is dependable, its has a backup camera and bluetooth is hands free. I feel that the car is a good product and should last a long time. I dislike the ride, it is not smooth.

- Denise A

It has been very reliable.

I really like my Sorento. It handles great in any weather. I have 3rd row seating which helps with a lot of people. It has a lot of gadgets. There really isn't anything that I don't like.

- Sue P

It's an all around very good SUV that carries just about anything you need to transport.

I love my 2012 Kia Sorento. I can put just about anything I need to transport. We have a little over 103,000 miles on it but we got a free engine at 97,000 miles for a warranty defect.

- Bradford W

The smooth ride and comfortable seating.

It drives good and has comfortable seating. It is a smooth ride and easy to maneuver. Has great pick up. I lime the third row seat and when that is down there is plenty of storage space.

- Kim O

Reliable car with minor problems

The 2012 Kia Sorento is a decently reliable car that has not given me much problems over the years. It is comfortable to drive. My only complaint is that the brakes are slow to response.

- Angela O

It gets good gas mileage for an SUV and has third row seating.

It has been pretty reliable and gets good mileage for an SUV. It has had some quirks with the gas tank which is annoying and overall, it does not have as much space as you would think.

- Emily A

It has a lot of higher end features that more expensive cars have. It does not have a cheap feel to it.

I love the seats and seat warmer and cooler. The steering wheel warmer for cold weather. It has good quick pick up. I like the side mirrors, I can close them with the push of a button.

- Stephany D

That Kia has come along way in quality compared to ten years ago and the Sephia and all the other makes that had issues. They are a brand on the rise.

Great gas mileage for an SUV. It has great amount of room in seating rows and storage in the back trunk. It has a nice interior with premium looking features but at an affordable rate.

- Jay R

I like the heated seats. I like the fact you can raise the driver's seat height.

My Kia ended up with catastrophic engine failure after I had only had it 1 year. I did buy it used with 70, 000 miles on it. The customer service department of Kia however was a 10/10.

- Leigh A

Reliable transportation for the family

Overall a good quality car. However, it is lacking in features. The car was bought used and there was no option for an updated radio system to include touchscreen or phone integration

- Randy V

I think I covered that in my previous statement.

We really like our Kia and get good gas mileage, not as good as we were led to believe but they do reimburse us for the difference. The only thing we are not happy with is the noise.

- Jean R

Perfect size and storage space.

The vehicle is perfectly sized. I transport children but I did not want to purchase a minivan. The vehicle has a 3rd row which allows multiple riders as well as good storage space.

- Mrs G

It's a great SUV! Very spacious and great gas mileage!

I love my Kia Sorento! It's a very dependable SUV. It gets great gas mileage! The only thing wrong with it for me is the back seat sits weird compared to other SUVs I've noticed.

- Elizabeth C

Kia Sorento is a multi-functional vehicle that can be used for commute, family trips, or towing.

I love the size of my car and the fact that it has the 3rd row seat when needed. It has no mechanical issues and maintenance has been minimal. My Kia is quite peppy and fun.

- Holly R

It's a great SUV for everyday errands and transport.

I like my vehicle because it's perfect for my family. The size makes it big enough to haul big items. The eco boost is a plus. And I think it is an all around good vehicle.

- Mara F

Kia Sorento - A good choice!

I love my Kia Sorento. I purchased it used with 16000 miles on the odometer. It's just a 4 cylinder but it has good pick-up. Runs very well. Good on gas. Comfortable seats.

- Susan C

The Kia Sorento is very good on gas

I like my Kia Sorento. It is very big and spacious. I also love the fact that the seats can go down so I can have extra trunk space. There is nothing I dislike about my SUV

- Veronica A

The safety features and ratings on my vehicle are number 1!

I love the safety features of my vehicle. But I don't like that there are some basic features on my car. I don't have automatic lights and no defroster on my side mirrors.

- Vicki G

The car is reliable and affordable

It has plenty of room for a small family, and enough extras to feel like it's a top tier brand. 3rd row seating is too small to use if you have stuff in the trunk space

- Julie M

If you use the 3rd row option, you will have very little to no trunk space

I love the gas mileage on the vehicle. I like the exterior look of it. I like the 3rd row option. My only complaint is the lack of trunk space if you use the 3rd row.

- Laura P

Fun, reliable, safe but uncomfortable

Great drive, very reliable, seats are uncomfortable, has small oil leak, fun to drive! I have owned for over 3 years and looking to buy a newer model of the same car.

- Mike M

Sonata by Hyundai is a great car.

It looks nice and keeps me safe. I do feel it is falling apart a bit, sooner than it should. The interiors and such. It also lacks the get up and go that I'd prefer.

- Spring L

It has a lot of space in the trunk.

I like very much my Kia sorento.it has the perfect size,in a suv.I have it for 6 years and enjoy driving everyday.I only had few problems with it since I bought it.

- Ana M

Don't buy a Kia vehicle because they are poorly made.

I love the gas mileage. I hate the cosmetic features. The paint job does not last long and the interior is starting to tear. I would not buy another Kia product.

- Marie D

This car is good on gas, it has a rearview camera.

I do not like that it has problems with the electrical system the head and tail light are always burning out. I really like how much room it has in the interior.

- Antaya R

It is reliable and inexpensive to maintain.

I love the all wheel drive capability and the interior storage space. I am also pleased with the gas mileage. The car rides hard and is a bit uncomfortable.

- Christopher Z

It's a good car for a family.

Its reliable it's good on gas and it economical, you can def travel in it with the family, it not luxury but it's a good car when given the right maintenance.

- Stephanie I

Kia Sorento! Make sure to research before you buy!

Love my SUV for the most part! Sadly the year of my vehicle has had tons of issues. Overall the dealership has been very helpful when problems have occurred.

- Courtney D

Love the 3rd row seating, when needed. Just wish bigger storage area when 3rd row is up.

Had to have transmission replaced at 36k miles, but that has been really the only thing. Still have a clicking in the gear shift when you get to about 5mph

- Mel H

Most cars in this category do Not have a third row!! This one does!

It has Good gas mileage, good pick up and go and handling on wet and snowy roads. It is much roomier inside then expected and love the storable third row.

Gas mileage isn't the best

It is a very reliable car, I do however use it a lot for work so the gas mileage isn't as great as I'd like it to be. But comfortable and spacious

- Robbie Z

Comfortable, good mileage SUV.

Comfortable, rides well, has optional 3 row to allow 7 passengers; many up today features such as heated set, heated steering wheel; good mileage.

- Donna S

You need to keep the miles low, and frequent oil changes will protect the resale value.

Has lots of room, affordable without too many add on gadgets. I wish it had better gas mileage, it averages 19 mph. It does have a large gas tank.

- Christopher S

I love that it has three rows, bluetooth capabilities, smooth to drive, lots of room, comfortable, roomy, i have the v6 model and its great on gas

Reliable, dependable, a good solid, nice looking car. Would highly recommend.

Great car, reliable, comfortable, economical, and most importantly, dependable. No complaints at all. Next car would have a few more options.

It is a reliable vehicle and user friendly.

I like the sun roof and also the navigation system in the vehicle and I am a little disappointed in the room for the riders in the back seat.

- Vanessa B

Great gas mileage. Pick up is quick.

I like the look of our car as well as some built-in features such as the seat heater and rear view mirror object detection warning system.

- Sharon K

It has cooling seats and double skylight windows

I have a grey SUV. It had about 97,000 miles on it. No major issuers or repairs other than maintenance. Biggest issue it's a rough drive.

- kate H

Kia Sorento is durable and long-lasting, it has surpassed mileage expectations.

My Sorento has required very few major repairs. My vehicle has over 250,000 miles, and is still running well. The SUV is very versatile.

- Karen L

It is very spacious and good on gas.

It doesn't have a sunroof. Also I don't care for the seats specifically the driver's seat when drying long distances. Its uncomfortable.

- Gina I

It is luxury and has no issues.

I love the reverse cam in the mirror. I love the space. I love the light up cup holders. It is a very reliable car with minimal upkeep.
