2016 Kia Sorento Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Kia Sorento
Wipers review. The headlights come on when windshield wipers are used.
The Sorento is excellent for 2-4 family members. The interior is roomy enough that you don't feel cramped even though it is not the largest SUV Kia makes. The ride is good and the rear loading space is very large compared to others in its price range. It also has some storage space under the mat in rear. The back seats fold forward to allow more cargo room and the seats front seats adjust to fit individual preferences. The console is easy to navigate and you can program to open your garage door. The back seat has 3 seatbelts for easy use. The console pocket is room and has a Charger port for easy access. This vehicle rides well and its get good gas mileage. The gas tank is opened inside vehicle making it less apt to be tampered with. The rearview mirror automatically dims rear bright lights at night making it an easy transition to night driving. Over all I really love my Sorento. I have had no repairs or breakdowns.
Has everything I need, room, back up camera for safety. All wheel drive. Perfect.
I am currently driving my third Kia Sorento. I have owned quite a few cars and I have fell in love with the Kia Sorento. It is a great design, provides a lot of room and is such a comfortable drive. You cannot beat the safety rating and I feel safe and solid driving the Sorento. I have never had any major issues or minor for that matter with the Sorento. I keep up with oil changes and normal maintenance and that is all I have ever needed. People ask me why I drive a Kia. I tell them take a Sorento for a test drive and you will not look back. It is a great solid affordable car and it has all the bells and whistles you would find in a more expensive vehicle. The warranty you cant be, but even more so you cannot beat the safety rating. I love this car and will not be shopping for any other vehicle. I am a lifelong Kia customer.
Kia Sorento all around good vehicle.
My 2016 Kia Sorento has been a great car for the last 3 years. One of my favorite things is the gas mileage, I get around 27 miles to the gallon on a normal day. I enjoy all the features that come with the car. The backup camera is clear and easy to see out of, and the warning beeps when I get too close to something come in handy. I have the third row seat option in my car, which is great, but when the 3rd row is up there is only about 5 inches of space available between the seat and the rear door. This does not leave much space for anything. As far as the control of the vehicle goes, the ride is smooth and comfortable. The car has tight steering creating an ease with the control of driving. It does have a lot of power and I am able to accelerate quickly when needed.
Once a poor product, but no more! Kia is a must have vehicle for your family!
I love the features on my new car, even though it is not a fully loaded model. Very well appointed. Rides very smoothly. Minimal road noise. Handles superbly. Heated seat warmers, XM satellite, driver’s side automatic seat, reading lamp, and, steering wheel controls are just a handful of the many features that make this model feel like a luxury car for a not-luxury-price. We've owned a Kia many years ago, and swore we'd never purchase one again: the quality was so poor: horrific road noise; cheap, plastic everything; handled like a toy car. It was awful. I do not know what’s happened since then, but Kia has completely overhauled their product and their image. I have no reservations about purchasing Kias now. In fact, our household now owns two! We love Kia!
The car with flair - Kia Sorento. Your kids will love it!!
Kia Sorento 2016 has just the right amount of bells and whistles for me. Cruise control, air vents for the passengers in the back seat. The back seats also lie down for comfort on road trips, as does the front passenger seat. Gets fantastic gas mileage even in the city. Has CD player and has the option to have Sirius XM satellite radio (reasonable rates too). Four doors with lift tailgate. Tinted windows a plus for hot summer months. The back end has ,so much space for groceries or your sports equipment, whatever you need to load. Wonderful family vehicle or for someone like myself. Safe, dependable sports utility vehicle!
Driver seat comfort is the best.
The Kia Sorento was the most comfortable of all similar size SUVs for my back. You are able to reduce the lumbar pressure all the way, this was most important for me. There is a blind spot in the front around the windows where the rear view mirrors are. When at a stop sign there have been a couple of times I did not see a car at the other sign due to this issue. I have not had any major problems or issues with the Sorento. I just wish I could have afforded the higher model up in order to have the driver memory seat settings. I think that should be a standard feature on all vehicles.
Amazing car, best decision ever.
I purchased my Kia brand new off the lot. Ever since that day, I have not had a single problem with it, unlike other cars that I have owned in the past. I purchased this vehicle because of the third row seating. I have three children and three car seats just do not fit well in normal cars. I love that I can pull up the back seats and I have an extra two seats in the back. It is very good on gas too. I can get by with a full tank of gas for over two weeks of driving my kids to and from school and grocery shopping in between. I absolutely love it.
Great family car, our vehicle is not equipped with a third row seat.
Purchased this vehicle mainly for its leg room, both front and rear, which adds so much to the comfort. To your trips. The 4 cylinder provides ample power as and is good on gas, mpg avg 28-30 around town and we have gotten as high as 34 on the road. I currently have 20, 000+ miles and have had no issues. Seating is very comfortable, gauges are easy to read both day and night. Steering wheel controls are user friendly. Visibility is good very little blind spots. Handling is excellent, easy to park. Vehicle is equipped with a backup camera.
The car gets really good gas mileage.
I really like the look of the car. It is very spacious and has a lot of cargo room. It is very easy to drive and has all the bells and whistles of a luxury SUV. I like the dash and all the information it has to offer. The backseat is spacious and has climate control. I like how the backseat folds all the way down so you can fit larger items back there. I do feel that there is a blind spot in the front of the cars when the seat is down. You need to push the seating of the driver's seat all the way up to see out the front of the hood.
It's a top rated SUV right now because it's safe, reliable, cute, and has great storage in the trunk.
I really like the outside look of it because of the grill, and that it's a nice sized SUV with good safety ratings. The gas mileage is also good. I don't like that it doesn't openly show how many miles I have left when my gas light comes on like my Honda did, and I don't like that it doesn't have an armrest for my right arm like my Honda did. I also wish the middle seat in the back was larger because no one can sit between my kids two car seats, and I can't put one in the middle due to the size.
