A reliable vehicle great for family trips and so much more...

My Sorento has been extremely reliable. It seats 7-8 with third row usage. It also has a built in navigation system, rear camera with beeping indicator if you're too close to hitting something. Also great on gas mileage. As I purchased it as a used car it was in very good condition. I did have an issue with the car breaking down once but the local Kia dealership and Kia Consumer Services took care of everything. The car was repaired with no cost to me and an additional extended warranty was added for the work that was completed. If you're looking for a family vehicle but can also be used to carry large loads I recommend the Kia Sorento.

3rd row seating definitely helps!

My 2013 Kia Sorento is great! For having a v6 engine, it is really great on gas. I can go roughly 400 miles on a full tank. The interior is well lit and comfortable. My vehicle model has the third row seat, so the SUV itself is just a tad bigger than the regular Kia Sorento. The third row seat folds down easily when not in use. Having the third row seat also makes it helpful when I take trips with my kids, they can each have their own space. Or if we take a day trip and they each bring a friend along. There’s plenty of room for everyone!

Durable, reliable crossover with great features.

I have owned my car for about 3.5 years. I bought it used. I haven't had many issues with it at all during this time, except for a minor problem where a part was recalled and I needed to get it replaced. It is comfortable and has 3 rows of seats, so it is great for kids or hauling a lot of stuff. The features are fairly basic, but it comes with a satellite radio, CD player, Bluetooth, and auxiliary inputs. The controls are user friendly and I rarely have to look at what I am pressing when I am driving. It is a very safe and reliable car.
