2014 Kia Sorento Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Kia Sorento
Great lil’ SUV in general, but been riddled with small problems.
I bought a used 2014 Kia Sorento in 2015. The day after I bought it, my engine light came on. My car went in and out of the used car dealership’s maintenance department. First they said it was just a malfunctioned sensor that they turned off. But it came right back on. Then they said it was just a small hole in some tubing which they fixed. But then it came right back on. I gave up on that car dealership and took it to my mechanic a few months later. He said there was something wrong with the engine and I'd have to take it to the actual Kia dealership. The Kia people told me there was a recall on my engine, so I got a brand new one put in. During that same time, I had to get my front brakes replaced. A little later on the engine light came on again, but this time I was told it was the “fuel level valve” leaking. They said it wouldn’t pose an immediate problem, but would need to be replaced eventually. This was estimated to be a near $800 job. That was months ago and I haven't done it yet. Everything seems to be running just fine and I have had no issues, despite the lights. Oh and my ac went out in the middle of south Texas summer. It is a great car for what I need, but it has been kinda riddled with some small-ish failings.
2014 Kia Sorento - big and safe enough for big family!
I love my 2014 Kia Sorento! I love the amount of space it has and I like that you can get a third row seating or just the two rows depending on how big your family is. It is big enough for kids as well as animals to fit in the very back! I hardly have any issues with anything mechanically which is always a plus! I also love that it is a very safe vehicle! With having children I needed a reliable SUV with great safety features! My daughter absolutely loves the air vents in the back that are next to the doors so that she can turn her air towards her or away from her without having to ask me to do it for her! Overall I have not had any issues with my 2014 Kia Sorento and I would buy one again if I had to!
2nd generation 14 Kia Sorento ex.
I bought this vehicle from carmax, so it is used, but it is very comfortable, reliable, and has great features. I love the dual air unit, so I can have it warmer while someone else has cold and vice-Versa. It has stable and clear Bluetooth which I can take calls or listen to music. I have a backup camera to make sure I can see what's directly behind me. I am not fond of leather but that is the only option for my trim level. --ex-- and with it being leather, it gets hot in summer. I do not like that I cannot change my music station if I have the car in reverse. The size is good, and can fit a child seat and two adults in the back. I like the option for a third row if necessary. The trunk is spacious.
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.
Good and poor points of the Kia Sorento.
The car is nice looking. It looks similar to a small SUV. The words Sorento lights up on door frame when door is opened there are several red areas that light up on the dash also. The third row seating is a plus. I am scared about the two hundred Sorento fires that have been in the news but I have had no problems with my Sorento. My car has 141, 000 miles on it. They are mostly road miles. The tech of the cell phone calls going through the radio is very nice while driving. I think the key price is too high when you want a duplicate key,
That it is a very safe, comfortable vehicle. Loads of great features
I really love my Sorento. It is the second one I have owned. It has great features, many that are in pricier vehicles. Smooth ride, fairly good on gas mileage.I really love the blind spot detector. It has been a godsend. The navigation system is very user friendly. The comfort of the seats are impeccable. I love to use the seat warmers on a cold day and the seat cooler on hot days. I have grown up kids , but the 3rd row seating has come in handy many times. If not in use I can easily fold them down and have a very large cargo area
Panoramic sunroof is amazing.
The sir vents for the ac and heater on the drivers side are block by the steering wheel so it takes awhile for you to cool off or warm up. The 3rd row seats are a joke the only people that can sit back there are very young kids and it is easier jump over the middle seat or to climb over the 3rd seat. I love the seat warmers and cool air vent it is great. I also like the steering wheel warmer. The sunroof/panoramic view is amazing. You do not get good gas mileage on city driving but it is not bad when I am taking a long trip.
Kia Sorento: high end features, great customer service, so-so reliability.
Love the features, things normally seen on a higher end type vehicle are present here: backup camera, heat/cool controlled seats, digital screen, push to start, plug and USB adapters, rear climate control. Do not like the lessened leg room in the middle row to accommodate the pop up third row. Will not look for a vehicle with an optional third row in the future. I have 76, 000 miles but had the touch screen fail, rear differential crack, and power steering fail. Kia dealership had great customer service though.
