All of the features you didn't know you needed, and now can't live without!

2013 Kia Sorento SX

I love my Sorento. It's easy to find parking spots that I can fit into, yet I have four wheel drive when I need it and it has a sporty SUV look. Dual sun/moonroof, heated and air conditioned seats, heated steering wheel, third row seating, reliable engine and gas mileage, and an Infinity sound system. I can retract my side view mirrors, program my seats, program garage door openers, and subscribe to Sirius Satellite radio. There is a pull down center console in the back seat for drinks and plenty of storage in the front center console up front, as well as, sunglass storage overhead and Bluetooth and GPS. The battery is easy to replace in the remote and the optional rubber floor mats are incredible for keeping the mess at bay. The seats are easy to fold down for hauling furniture. I fit 5 full size dining room chairs in my car just last week. I shopped for a new SUV on a whim when I took mine in for an oil change, and didn't even want to part with my Kia. It's hard to find other SUVs with heated steering wheels and retractable side view mirrors, not to mention all of the other things that spoil you, without them being aftermarket add-ons at incredible mark up!

Reliable and comfort with extra perks

2013 Kia Sorento SX

My Kia has been a wonderful vehicle. We bought it used and it came with a great warranty. We have had very little problems however with the few the warranty has taken care of them right away. The radio display had some lag time starting up and was replaced. Then there was a recall and issue with all of the warning lights staying on due to an axel concern. Again this was replaced and we have had no issues. It is great on gas mileage and has never left me stranded. Having two small children we have found this car to have plenty of room and is very comfortable with two car seats. We love having the third row, it folds down nicely giving up the option for extra cargo space or room for extra people. This is a fantastic family vehicle and I would highly recommend it to others.

Great family vehicle has excellent mileage and performance at a midrange price.

2013 Kia Sorento SX

I have been very happy with my 2013 Kia Sorento. The seats are both comfortable and cleanable, an important feature for a mom of three boys. My engine performance has been faultless, and I am up to 91,000 miles now. Gas mileage is excellent for an SUV, as is the tight turning ratio, allowing me to park in small spaces and turn around easily. The only problem I have had is an electrical issue involving the airbag system, where my airbag appears to be turned off on the drivers side, and an error code displays on the dash. Overall, I have been very pleased with this vehicle.

Great family car, very roomy with nice features

2013 Kia Sorento SX

I've owned my vehicle since 2015. Very comfortable leather seats, with heat and air condition control on the driver side and heat on passenger side. Navigation is fine - you have to pay for a subscription to update the map, so I usually use Google Maps on my phone instead. Sound is great. 3rd row seating rarely used but nice to have. Roomy trunk. I've had issues with my doors where the pins to keep the frame in place have broken. Engine blew up in 2017 due to a manufacturing issue where they recalled many vehicles and had to replace engines. Otherwise it's been a great car.

- Chelsea P

Love this car and all the space and tech features!

2013 Kia Sorento SX

I just got it in February and I've already had to get it jumped off twice. It was used when I purchased it. I love the spacious trunk. It's decent on gas, not much of a gas guzzler. I've been on so many trips this two secret compartments in the trunk where you can hide things and store things. It has aux cord, Bluetooth, and USB capability. I have two children so it's big enough for all of our stuff on their car seats. I love this car.

It is the best vehicle, I have owned!

2013 Kia Sorento SX

I keep up with check ups and oil changes, so it has been great to maintain! There is an occasional upgrade, otherwise it has been a great vehicle! It is easy to park, the backup screen is a great help, getting in and out of tight places. The air conditioner works great to cool on those hot days! When it is cold, I love the seat warmers, rather than the heater! I have lots of to haul my grandchildren and friends around!

- Eleanor S

The back up camera is nice and beeps of you are close to something.

2013 Kia Sorento SX

I absolutely love the Kia Sorento. I love how roomy it is. We have third row seating and we can also fold our second row down in the event that we need to haul something. We have dual sunroofs too or panoramic roof some call it. We have a back up camera and heated seats. The Kia alerts you if the tire is low. It has GPS. It is overall incredible.

- Stephanie S

It has push to start GPS and radio Bluetooth

2013 Kia Sorento SX

It's a really good car with a push to start which I think is fancy, I wish to update my GPS though. I love the leather seats and how you can cool or heat the front seats. However the only problem is gas mileages since it seems to waste a lot of gas every time I drive it to run errands or go places

Fastest most reliable bang for your buck

2013 Kia Sorento SX

Has been super reliable. Very comfortable. Is the fastest SUV in its class that year unless you want high end. Comes with bells and whistles. Poor paint quality however, didn't hold up as well as carers in my past. Has some torque steer when you stick your foot in it. Small third row.

- Danielle M

Lower cost SUV for the average driver.

2013 Kia Sorento SX

Tire sensor is very temperamental in extreme cold weather. Door handles are basic and not of durable quality. However performance has been consistent. Maintenance is minimal. Has needed features, like Bluetooth, ports for all types of electronics. Cargo space inefficient.

- Sherry W

Overall great family vehicle

2013 Kia Sorento SX

I love the sleek look of my Kia. I have heated seats and a back up camera. I don't have the third row seating but I really like the spacious leg room. The seat material is nice you can clean it easily and it doesn't get too hot or cold with the weather.
