Great vehicle but no third row tether.
I love the stability and the smoothness of the ride. It drives much like a luxury SUV. The middle row has a split bench which is convenient for getting into the third row, which will comfortably hold 2 full grown adults. The cargo area is small but since the two seats in the 3rd row are split also, we keep one down at all times to allow for more storage. The largest downfall for our family is that the third row does not have top tethers for front facing car seats. Having small children, this is a challenge since we cannot fit three across in the middle row. Overall this is a great vehicle, I may buy another when it's time but because of the tether issue, it will depend on where my kids are in the car seat journey.
Our Sorrento offers a very useful scheduled maintenance readout on dash display.
Our Sorrento has been a pleasure to own. Reliable, comfortable and does well on fuel for a SUV model. Seats fold down easily for hauling items from home improvement store and are easily returned back to upright position for passengers. It drives very well in snow conditions and has great handling. AC works great and maintenance readouts on dash display are very helpful. The car has had several recalls and these have been handled promptly and thoroughly by the dealer. This is our second Sorrento and I would consider purchasing another. Highly recommend the Sorrento for anyone looking for a versatile SUV with great carlile driving feel. handling, and fuel economy.
Kia Sorento: The Gun Rack Enabling Trunk
I've had my Sorento for a couple months now and I've been extremely happy with it. When driving with it in the 'ECO' mode, it gets around 28 mpg highway, has decent acceleration, and rides smoothly. 'SPORT' mode tends to eat gas so I don't use it. The 4 wheel drive worked fine when I took it mudding. The heated seats are great, especially when my back is hurting. The cream of the crop is the trunk area. The first part that is a great feature is the storage under the removable floor. Able to hold my hardhats and EDC. Next is the dimensions of the trunk. Was able to install a gun rack to hold my rifle and fishing rods. Would recommend this vehicle.
Versatile SUV with lots of convenient options.
We love our Sorento. We did a lot of research before buying and knew exactly what we wanted. We were looking for a safe reliable SUV but something that wasn't too big and had great gas mileage. The Sorento fit the bill. We upgraded to the v6 so we could have towing capabilities. We have had zero issues with it and we've owned the vehicle for almost three years. We also love the option of third row seating and the ease and convenience of converting the seats to extra storage is super easy. One flip of a lever and you have instant room for extra hauling.
Has a key port in the department when u can turn it on with button.
The problem with the Kia is the button key if because sometimes the brake will get hard and u cannot turn on the car since u have to push the brake and hold the key button at the same time and are unable to do that if the brake get hard.Another issue would be the gear because it has plus and minus and sometimes people do not know how to do that and is confusing it was at the beginning so it would be on the wrong gear and can really messed up your car which is no good but overall I really like it is a good car and reliable.
Kia Sorento is the best vehicle by far looks good and drives good!
I've haven't had any problems so far, Drove to Arizona a couple of times and back. Good gas mileage! Plenty of room Loved the reclining seats. Also The phone connection to Bluetooth sure helps when you're driving. Love the body style looks sharp and the daytime running lights look awesome. The back seats lay all the way down for hauling Large items. Next vehicle will be the same just wanted to add a tow package and it would be perfect!
Only one issue came for me.
I haven't had many problems, any problems I had I got taken care of right away with taking to the service center. I had an issue where the steering wheel locked into place and no one not even the tow truck driver was able to get it out, they had to take it into the nearest service center, while it was there they also fixed the recalls and topped off my levels without me even asking them too. 100% satisfaction.
Great vehicle highly recommend
Had engine unknown engine issues and they replaced the engine without letting me know what the problem was. However, it was replaced for free and the provided me a rental car for the time my vehicle was unavailable. Had one time where the gas sensor did not pick up the level of gas I had put in it which meant I got to guess for a few days where I was at before I filled up again
The Kia Sorento is a great vehicle at a great price.
The Kia is a very reliable vehicle. It has a comfortable ride. We get great gas mileage both in the city and on the open road. Some features we have are the heated seats, which are great in the winter time. We also have remote start. It has the trip features to help with your navigation. We have airbags at all door areas. All in all the Kia Sorento is a great family vehicle.
I love the space, and the price is no so expensive compared to other SUVs.
I have to small kids, so the space is amazing. It has 3 rows so I can fit extra people. Plus is very comfortable. I love the fact that it has heating features so when it's very cold I can turn on the heater. Plus I can put down the third row in the back and I get plenty of space for storage, specially when I'm out doing groceries or even space for my kids toys etc.
