Dependable, reliable and efficient.

Kia 2014 Sorento is a very reliable car it is good on gas mileage and very self sufficient. I worked in the city of Philadelphia for 3 years which was about 17 miles away from home. I had to be at work regardless of the weather and it always got me to work and back. Very dependable I stay up on all maintenance and car has never let me down. I feel safe driving it and car has great features such as great radio, can operate controls on steering wheel and also use phone hands free. Great on mileage and I use eco friendly device for even better mileage. I have taken it across state lines on numerous occasions and it has been wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great vehicle.

Reliable family car I love this car and would recommend it.

As long as you keep up on maintenance this is a great car the only downside is that the air went out as well as the power steering I will also say that the cost of the parts to fix can be a bit expensive but once again if you maintain the car then you should be fine the car runs smooth I have had it for four years and only recently have begun to have maintenance issues but I believe that was once again due to the current driver not keeping up on the regular maintenance. Gas is a bit expensive it takes about fifty bucks to fill and does run a bit quicker than I would like.

Great mix of function and form!

I absolutely love the features in my Sorento. Power everything including and over sized moon roof! The bells and whistles are what sold me on this vehicle. I love the comfortable heated and cooled seats, as well as the third row seating option. Functional and attractive. Unfortunately I have had to have the same repair done multiple times. Having an ongoing issue with engine leakage. This is covered under my warranty so financially it has not been a problem. Also the factory tires were terrible is rain and snow. Upgraded those and feel much safer.
