Kevin Bell met us in the parking lot. We knew what we wanted and he showed us the cars available. Within 10 minutes we were test driving the car we decided on. There was no hassling or haggling, we got the car we wanted in the price range we wanted and we're headed home in our new car within 2 hours.

The value the Sorento offers is amazing. You really get a lot for the money when buying. However the biggest problem with KIA is the resale. We bought ours one year old with 20 thousand miles on it. It already took the big deprecation hit. A new highlander or pilot will be much better if you buy new and plan on selling in a few years. They also cost more out of the box. We have no intention on selling so resale isn't a big concern to us. First I'll start with the engine. It is plenty powerful. We live in the south so we got the front wheel drive model. It really is overpowered for the front wheels. If it kicks down a few gears it will torque steer. Fuel mileage has been as expected. We average 23mpg between a mix of city and highway. One of my biggest gripes are the brakes. When I am doing a lot of city driving the brakes do start to fade in stop and go situations. I can noticeably feel the pedal travel get further. Kia should have gave it a little bigger brakes from the factory. The other gripe I have it the seat material. Ours has cloth seats and the material just isn't great. I do not believe it will hold up great over the next 5 or so years. Time will tell. Other than those gripes which are minor to me the Sorento is a great SUV. I tow a trailer which weighs about 2500 pounds and it takes it just fine. It is comfortable and easy to drive for extended periods. The third row is usable. The highlander and pilot had more third row room but the Sorento's third row is fine and usable for children or small adults. I'm 5'8'' and I can sit back there fine. Anything over 5'10'' or so is going to run out of head room. With the third row up there is very little room for storage. Overall I am very happy and my wife and I love it. Very glad we chose the Sorento.

Coming off of a Lexus RX, I was concerned that it wouldn't feel as luxurious. Although it's stiffer and less "designed", I fell in love with the Sorento immediately upon driving it off the lot. It's tough but not trucky, comfortable but not couch-like, and big but not cumbersome. It has great pick up and drives like a car, and I happen to think it looks pretty darn cute on the road. Having said this, the reason I'm writing this review is that I was in my first car accident in my 38 years just this week. I was T-boned, and before I knew what had happened I realized the car was flipping. SUV's by nature may be more likely to roll, and that may be a deterant to some, but in this instance I think it was a blessing. I believe the roll helped lessen the force of the hit, which struck my child's door. As I understand it, T-Bones can be very catastrophic, especially to the person in the receiving seat. Between the airbags, restraints, and general contour of the car, when the car came to rest we were completely unscathed. Completely. The moment I can, I will go get another Sorento and will feel safer than ever. And thank you to the designers of this car for helping me walk away with my son!

Exceeded Expectation- Everything Well Thought Out.

I have owned 65 + vehicles- luxury to economy cars, high performance cars, SUV's, and Minivans. The Sorento has gotten more things just right than any vehicle I have ever owned. The push button start works perfectly, headlights give you the right options, controls layout is excellent, the ride/handling balance is very good and the engine and transmission perform flawlessly in sync. The engineering to get the amount of space and passenger capacity in a vehicle only 187 in. in length is a real accomplishment. Most other competition is 7 to 10 in. greater in vehicle length. With this space efficiency, comes weight savings and the strong V6, so it has good performance for a vehicle in this class. We got 24.7 mpg on highway trip. At this point of 2,500 miles, we could not be happier with our decision.

Beautiful car, outstanding

I purchased this car because of the value and the bells and whistles the car has to offer. Everywhere I go: work, pleasure, people stop and admire my vehicle. I live in the Tahoe (California) area, where we had an epic snow season last winter. The vehicle was just gliding thru the snow covered roads, no sliding, no worries. I do highly recommend the vehicle.

We bought this beautiful, expensive car specifically for the added safety features. From the start, we have had ongoing problems with the blind spot detection system. It randomly fails. This happens under all types of road and weather conditions, without warning. The system sometimes spontaneously resets itself, and sometimes it does not. Our smart key entry also failed once. We could not enter the vehicle with either of our smart keys...we had to pull out the manual key to get into the car. On another occasion, the entire sound system failed! This lasted until we turned the car off and restarted it. Needless to say, our vehicle has been in and out of the dealership service area many times...with absolutely no resolution to the problem. This is the most beautiful, most expensive, and most unreliable car that we have ever owned. KIA should replace the car with a reliable one!

Fantastic Find

The Kia Sorento EX 6/AWD is a fantastic auto. I had had my mind set on a GMC Terrain, but there is no comparison, not even close. Our Kia is so quiet yet so powerful. There are no more bumps in the road, and it handles almost as well as my Honda Accord did. It came with third row seating, heated leather seats, the back-up camera, lane warning, and power liftgate, all of which i strongly recommend, oh, and all those electronic thingies. With the flat folding rear seats the cargo space is huge, and they are easy to operate. It has a power passenger seat and even the second row reclines (separately left and right). Our ride from NJ to Maine was actually enjoyable, plus we got 25 mpg at 80 mph! We put $5000 down and are leasing at only $300/month for 36 months. With 5000 lb towing capacity it will be a breeze towing our boat up to Maine in July. We are thrilled with our decision. Gotta deal with Tom Brennan at Sansone Jrs. in Neptune, NJ.

I should probably wait to write a review as I've only had the car for a couple of weeks and haven't driven it that much (I think it still has less than 500 miles on it). Regardless, I'm delighted with the car as it handles and performs far better than I expected it would. There are places where the fit isn't what a top-tier car should be but, then, it's not a top-tier car. However, from someone who has owned 8 Mercedes-Benz, this car performs right up there. Some of the things I especially like: 1. The Hyundai Lambda engine is an excellent match for the car. It's very responsive and the relatively high butt gears gets you off the line with a nice snap. No, this isn't a muscle car V8 but for a small SUV, it's damned decent. I don't complain about the fuel economy though my children might disown me for not buying a hybrid. 2. Exceptional braking with virtually no loss of control - even in hard braking maneuvers. Granted, I'm not too aggressive with the brakes right now as I'm letting them 'break' in gently but the car still stops in a very short amount of distance. 3. The navigation/entertainment center is very easy to use - it all makes sense. I've owned cars where I was continually searching through the manual to figure out, "How do I make it do . . . " whereas on the Kia, it's easy to find the features I'm looking for. Even the more esoteric features that aren't used much, they're easy to find. The sound system is excellent. 4. I absolutely love the self-leveling, HID headlights. Since I'm an old man, my night vision isn't what I'd like it to be. With these headlights, I can see everything in front of me clearly. Good news for you who drive near me at night! 5. Consumer Reports rates the car as having an excellent frequency of repair record. I'm hoping they're right. 6. I like the looks of the car. Subjective, I know, but it's better than driving a car that I think is ugly. 7. My brother-in-law, who likes to point out everything what's wrong with everything I do, said that KIA stands for 'Killed in Action'. Actually, Ki is Chinese for energy (sometimes transliterated as 'Qi'). They added the 'a' to stand for 'Asia', despite the fact that the car is built in the USA. Now that I own one, I see them all over the place. There are three things that I don't like about the car: 1. No Day Time Running Lights. I could turn the headlights on during the day but that leads me to Dislike Number 2. 2. There's no warning chime, buzzer, etc if you leave your headlights on, shut off the engine and open the door the door. I think that's been a feature on virtually every car made in the last 40 years! Granted, the electrical system will shut down everything if the voltage gets too low - nice feature - but that's hard on batteries if you like to have the car lit up during the day and aren't warned that you're leaving your headlights on. 3. Our trim line uses a hard, black plastic for parts of the steering wheel, the window control trim and the center console. How much could have it cost to do those pieces out of a nice wood?

looked at several others including the Honda crv and the Subaru forrester and couldn't believe the additional size and value in this car. I have 2000 miles on it since it was leased and I love it. the interior materials are not cheap but very soft and rich looking. the controls while incorporating touch technology still have a lot of buttons and dials which I personally love. great sounding satellite radio and the noise level from outside is minimal. I have the 240 horse turbo and was concerned with the low milage epa estimates for the car thinking I would be lucky to get 22-23 miles per gallon. I changed the selection for the engine to echo mode when I drove it home and it has been there ever since. I have the awd and I have consistently averaged 25 + miles since new. I have not had any lack of power in this mode and will continue to leave it there. back seats very roomy and had three adults back there going out to eat the other night with no issues. back storage area very large also. another nice feature which I haven't had to use yet is the locking hub mode for deep snow etc. great car at a wonderful price.

Never would have thought I would have chosen a Kia, but after weeks of comparing, test driving all the options out there and comparing some more Kia was the clear choice. Not a small 4 cylinder econo box and not as big as a the full size 7 passenger SUVs, just right for usually 5 passengers with option to flip up to get 7 seats. Ride is quiet and comfortable. Visibility is good. Technology works well with clear displays and easily understood controls. The only minus is the steering. It is way too loose. We have to always select the sport option or the Kia wanders on the road. Overall a great buy.

Great KIA Sorento - still going great.

This Kia is a really nice mid-size SUV! I'm a Honda guy, my daily commuter is still an Accord. My wife is the primary driver of the Sorento and it replaced our 08 Pilot. We really research major purchases like this to death and tried out most of the SUV's in this class, minus the luxury brands. It took us 2 months to make a decision and it came down the Sorento and the Pilot. I honestly don't think we'd have went wrong either way but after 3 months of ownership we're still happy with the Sorento. We love our LX but our only regret is going cheap with the LX. In hine sight the larger touchscreen, some of the active safety features and the fog lights would've been well worth the extra cost. We'll probably drive this Sorento for 2 or 3 years and upgrade, probably only looking at the Pilot and Sorento at that time. Things I like about the Sorento: Power, the V6 is a beast. Comfort, very comfortable passenger compartment. Front and middle row are every bit as good as the Pilot, third row comfort goes to the Pilot but we don't use the third row much. Fuel economy is pretty good we're right around 24 mpg overall. Quiet, comfortable ride. The warrenty is huge, it was the deciding factor in our decision. The only knocks: Small infotainment screen, this is my fault for going cheap. Lack of storage when using the third row. Overall we're very happy with this Sorento!

Best of the bunch!

This is my second Sorento. I traded in a 2014 and there is a world of difference. This vehicle is quiet and smooth as a babie's behind. We have the 3rd row (for emergencies) but the seats are folded down. The back is huge. Maybe not as big as the Pilot, but neither is the car itself. All I can tell you is to go take one for a drive. They range in price from $25k - $45k. Mine is the LX V6 AWD with convenience package and 3rd row seat. MSRP was $33k. They have several incentives like active military, veteran, student and combinations. Your mileage may differ.

If considering the premium package, definitely consider the touring package. You get a much better screen (Nav/multimedia) and the glass roof (panoramic sunroof) is unbelievable. In our case the cost difference was only $44 / month payment wise. So, we got the touring and have not regretted the purchase.

We drove Chevy's, Ford's, Honda's & Toyota's and liked the Kia Sorento the best. The car is rated higher than the rest in safety & reliability and has a far better warranty as well. The comfort and passenger room in the front seat is far better than the other brands. My wife did all of the homework, drove and rode in all of the other brands and Kia got the sale. If you don't believe it, go drive one and see. Now we have 6,000 miles on the Kia 11/3/16 and all is well, my wife still loves it.

Traded in a 2013 Sorento for the redesigned 2016 EX V-6. Outstanding vehicle. Quite, plenty of power, excellent handling. I will definitely keep this one. Also have a 2011 Kia Optima EX fully loaded and love it. Traded in a Hyundai XG 350L in for it. Have 79,000 miles on it now with no problems. I will continue to buy Kia's. UPDATE: Had the vehicle now for 10 months, 14800 miles. Still completely satisfied. Get around 26 city/30 highway. No complaints. Would definitely buy another. Extra alarms like the back up warning and cars in your blind spots are very nice features.

I disagree with the Reviewer's Cons: That the" 2.0 Turbo lacks punch from a standstill ". I have to feather the gas pedal at a stop light to avoid spinning the wheels! This engine has plenty of punch at any speed, I promise you-especially after the engine is broken in. I have about 13,000 miles now. Coast to coast from sea level to 9,000 feet in the mountains. The great thing about the Turbo is you don't loose power at higher elevations. The EX is so quiet and comfortable I can drive 800 miles and still go dancing! To date I have had zero problems with this car. I ditched my 2014 Honda CRV for this car as too noisy, slow, bad handling and uncomfortable for road trips.

Love it!!!!

Hands down, the most comfortable, quiet, refined ride of any car I have ever driven. The styling is great, the car just sounds solid when closing the doors, and the thought Kia put into the design shows throughout. We went with the top model and the extras that brings makes long trips really enjoyable. I have driven Sorentos as rental cars over the past 7-8 years but vowed I'd never own one due the the fairly harsh ride. But the 2016 is a true game changer!! It's the first time my wife has ever said "I love this car"! Me too!

Loving my new Sorento and still have money left in my pocket! Looks great and drives great. This new remodel turns heads. Everyone on my block and at my kid's school has been asking about it. Sharp looking interior, well thought out with lots of cargo space plus additional storage bins underneath. Rear back-up camera, bluetooth, UVO services (voice command), heated seats, AWD, parking sensor, USB ports everywhere, power adjustable driver's seat and many other bells and whistles. Compared to Explorers, Highlanders and Pilots, you get so much more bang for your buck plus a far better bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranty. I now jump at the opportunity to run out and get something, anything, just to get me in my new 2016 Sorento!!

I have never purchase a new vehicle so quickly. I have been driving a 2010 SRX Cadillac Premium Collection for five years. Who would have ever thought I would buy a KIA SUV?! I went to the dealership to drive the Volvo (which I literally hated) but I had done some internet research on the 2016 Sorento so when the salesman said you really need to drive the Sorento, I said ok. That's all it took, I fell in love with this automobile. The quality of the interior with it's Napa Leather and the ease of the instrument panel and the large viewing screen and the beauty of the drive won me over at once. Now all I had to do was decide just what I wanted and the trim package, the color Titanium was a given. Well I wanted it all ....a SX Limited. The dealership had to locate one in Missouri. It was exactly what I wanted color trim etc., and lo and behold when it arrived it had several other perks, like a tow package, gorgeous side steps, remote start, cross bars and several niceties. People said you are going from a Cadillac to a Kia and my reply is hell yes.....it truly is a much better car, much more comfortable, the seats are the most comfortable I have ever had and the black and white interior is stunning.....people can't get over the look and quality. The visibility out the front windshield is vast with very minimal blind spots. There are so many bells and whistles on this car I couldn't begin to comment on all. Let's just say, it's right up there with the Lincoln MKX (much cheaper), BMW, and other luxery vehicles. I read this was Kia's goal to put forth an SUV that would possibly attract these luxury car drivers to the new Sorento and yes that's exactly what is happening. I have been driving mine for two weeks and I'm still so much in love with it's gorgeous body stye and all it's safety and wonderful amenities along with the quite, high quality interior. The ease of the voice activated navigation and the very simple bluetooth hands free telephone along with the Xeon lighting, the full panoramic sun roof, the roomy storage, the thrill of having an actual spare tire (Cadillac had a pump), the very peppy takeoff and getaway, the quietness of the ride on highway and the nifty red and blue lights on the interior at night make this very quick purchase of the 2016 Sorento one of the happiest and best decisions I've ever made.

Lots of good, some things to work on

Had my LX V6 over a year now. Great ride. Nice finishings. Gas mileage almost always EXCEEDS the 18/26 posted. On highway, I usually get about 30 mpg- wirh a V6 engine! Car insurance is starting to go down but it can be pricier than other SUV in its class. Something to keep in mind. Driver seat is nicely shaped but slightly firm. The wing-up edges can pose a challenge for those with mobility issues requiring help getting into the 2 front seats. Plenty of leg room in the front and back. I enjoy driving it a lot but I have a list of a few things KIA could do to really spruce things up: 1. Please add adjustable brakes. Brakes are a little mushy if you're a light-footed breaker. 2. Please, please PLEASE add the option to silence that annoying alarm that rings when it's 40F outside. It's annoying and startling at times!! 3. It's hard to wash the top of the back window with that fin in the way- esp with the squeegee. Can that fin be reshaped or removed? 4. It's annoying that you can't change the radio station when the backup camera is on. Really?! Also, with the wheel radio control, you can only change the radio position one station at a time. Would be nice to be able to hit the button 4 times and actually go up or down 4 presets. 5. Please, please, PLEASE, KIA add the Global Open-Windows feature to the remote. It would be a god send for people like me with heat intolerance. PLEASE!!! 6. Daytime running lights on L, LX models, please! 7. Would appreciate a rubber cargo mat for 7-passenger cargo area when seats are folded down rather than the less-than-helpful carpeted cargo mat available. 8. Automatic up and down driver window feature is nice but it takes a lot of finessing to adjust the auto-down if you need interrupt it. 9. UVO system is OK on LX- nothing spectacular. KIA- please make the 7"/8" navigation system standard. The Sorento is a good value and a nice drive, despite my little nit picks. But I think it's the little things that separate good cars from the great ones. Sorento is not a disappointment but a good car that has the potential to be a really great one with a little attention to details that make the driving experience even more of a pleasure.

3 Miles on Odometer

I started looking for cross over SUVs with the AWD, and a third row. I used to drive a 1996 Honda Accord LX (Manual transmission) I really wanted a Hyundai Vera Cruz but they stopped making the vehicle in 2012. Then I thought about the Mazda 5 (manual transmission) but it looked like mini-van car. I ended up focusing on the Santa Fe and Mazda CX9. I got a consumer report magazine and added the Outlander and Sorento to my research radar. In concert with a good friend I test drove all vehicles 3 months before I purchased. My friend road in the back while I test drove and used a check sheet to document wind noise and backseat comfort ability etc. By the end of the day I narrowed it down to the Mazda and the KIA. I purchased a 2016 LX Sorento with 3 miles on the odometer. The ride is smooth, I feel like I am riding in luxury without paying the price. The vehicle is not too big and able to do all the things I need it to do. Cargo room is great; however not when the third row is in use. I only have two issues the Bluetooth tends to spike in volume when a call comes in and that can be startling EVERY time and I never feel completely confident when parallel parking. I feel as if visibility is limited. I am overly satisfied with my purchase and the price. I may consider upgrading to EX in a few years.

Way more than I expected!!

I bought the best KIA available and I have not been disappointed. I drove nearly every similarly sized SUV in existence and nothing compares in terms of value. I definitely recommend the V-6 version, its much more fun to drive and, I believe, much safer. As an added bonus, I was treated like a human being at the dealership and it was a pleasurable experience compared to some to which I have been exposed. If there is a downside ...it will probably take quite a while to master all of the technology in this car.

Love my 2016 Kia Sorento!

After a lot of shopping for SUV's with a 3rd row, I made the decision to purchase the Kia Sorento. The car looks and rides like a $50,000 SUV, but at a fraction of the price. I am typically drawn to European cars, but feel this car offers all the luxuries I am accustomed to with the backing of a 100,000 mile warranty. One additional selling point for me was the large amount of usable cargo space. Many of the newer SUV's have a significant sloping to the back window, which is not practical for 3rd row occupants or dogs. The Kia Sorento gives my 3 furry friends significant head room in the back. There is also an air conditioning vent in the 3rd row so my pups can stay cool. My kids love the car too. They have always been spoiled with their rides and this car is no different. We are very happy with the fit and finish of the car.

Some Good and Some Not so Good

We’ve only had the Sorento 7 months, but our first impressions are some good and some not so good. First the good things: 1. Love the body design and overall exterior and interior look of the vehicle. 2. The ride is very smooth and quiet, with ample power for passing and hopping on the freeway. 3. Gas mileage is above what they rated it to be. We’re getting over 25 mpg on highway and 21-22 in the city. and that's in the 7 passenger, 6 cylinder, 3.3 liter SX 4. It has a very short turning-radius for that long a vehicle. 5. The shifting is very smooth and the manual shifting works very good for driving in winding, steep mountain roads. 6. There’s ample leg-room in all 3 rows of seats, but the headroom (with a sunroof) is a little too low in the 3rd row of seats. 7. I like the manual shifting capability. It makes driving on winding mountain roads a lot easier on the brake pads. 8. The blind-spot warning and reverse warning systems work well to assist in driving. The visibility when backing up is not as good as we'd like, so the backup camera and warning system help in that regard. 9. I like that the leg room along the "hump" (console area) next to your right leg is much better than in many of the other vehicles we test-drove--like the Nissan Murano and Infiniti QX30. Some of the not so good features are: 1. Entering and exiting the 3rd row seats is a slightly difficult. 2. The front seats are a little too firm, and the power lumbar is still noticeable even when fully contracted. 3. The steering wheel position could be allowed to go lower and farther out. 4. I liked the CVT transmission on our traded in Murano, so I do miss that smooth, quiet shifting.

Tight fun

I have test driven 4 different Kia Sorentos and I recommend skipping any of the 4 cylinder models. I went over to the Nissan dealer after trying those models and almost didn't return. The 6 cylinder is pure driving joy. They have a $32,000 model with the 6 cylinder, leather, satellite radio.. And no sun roof.. For me this model would have been perfect except the radio really sounds lousy and it's virtually impossible to upgrade. This is a $10,000 savings over other similarly equipped three row SUVs on the market. Since I really care about my music I would've had to upgrade to the $38,000 model which adds a panoramic sunroof gorgeous rims and larger tires plus an infinity sound system. The drive is very nimble and sporty while-being smooth enough for those of us who like a little tactile communication with the road. Other three row SUVs on the market feel much more cumbersome, heavy And over bloated by comparison: while the 2016 Kia Sorrento feels lean, agile, youthful and fun to drive. It feels like a precision machine: very well put together.

Recently purchased a 2016 Kia Sorento SX after thorough review on this site and several others. Opted for the SX trim since we really wanted the UVO navigation package and other features that came standard at that trim package. Very impressed with the acceleration of the V-6 3.3L engine, smooth handling, and solid suspension. I think that there is incredible value in this vehicle and that it compares favorably with luxury SUVs that command prices 10-20K higher. Of the very few criticisms that I've read regarding the 2016 Kia Sorento, one was the limited available interior space with the 3rd row. I think it's important to keep in mind that this is a mid-sized SUV that is not intended to constantly haul 7 people around but rather provides you the option of extra seating when you're in a jam. Went for a test-drive at Cowboy Kia of Conroe and was very impressed. I was able to negotiate a great deal and am a highly satisfied customer and new Kia owner.

A car that gives you peace of mind!

If I told you about the past three cars I had before my Sorento, you wouldn't believe my bad luck. I still walk out of the store and thank god "Black Betty" is there to greet me. We bought this car less than two weeks before moving across country. We went with two rows. Just my husband and myself, and a bunch of fur babies. We looked at every car out there. New/used. We stayed away from anything 45k and above. We had about 10k-12k to put down. Our options were open. Initially my husband test drove the Sorento. While I was impressed/size with the appearance I was favoring the sleek and sexy body/look of the Nissan Altima. Obviously the two cars aren't a like at all. We did need space. I went over the Pros and cons. I'll share them with you now. Pro: Space, the large trunk offers much more space than most SUV's without removing seats. The body is sexy, it looks nice. People are always caught off guard by the brand. The interior is really detailed. I love the two tone. Black and tan with tan seats and black carpets. Even the 4cl has some kick when you want it to move. It rides so smooth. Not as great as my Lincoln, but come on it was a Lincoln! Interface has many options to choose from Mode for gas: eco, sport, regular Ease of getting in and out. My grandmother loved how you could just slip in and out. Many options for power, you can all have your devices plugged in at once. The seats are comfortable, you don't feel stiff and unable to move freely. The backup camera, something I never thought I would use, is very useful. Leg room for passengers is always a pro. The movement of the second row allows people in the backseat to relax and not feel stuck. Gas is pretty good. We drove over 4000 miles from South Carolina to Washington State, making stops in both Arkansas, and Illinois. That's not an easy drive in any car. With 6 animals. I wouldn't have chosen any other vehicle to have done it in. we got 27.8 miles per gallon. I'll take it. --- Cons The wind with knock you over, no really if it's windy let off the gas. I feel like for a brand new car the headlights lack in visualizations. The speed on the windshield wipers is not up to par, in fact I consider them almost dangerously slow. The sound system could be better. I will have to have it replaced with a better system at some point. It's lacking in every way. (The Sounds system for years it seems on Kia models has come with issues, you have to reset it with a pin (pointed object, being inserted into a tiny hole) Or there will be no sound, from ipod's cd's ect.. Front grill isn't east to clean. Took many car washes to get the bugs off of the grill. I spent almost $30.00 just trying to removed them. There is still residue. If you have pets HUGE annoyance "You can't leave your keys in the car and lock the door, thus leaving the air on." If your keys are in the car your doors will not lock. Auto lock doors. Great for when you run in a store and forgot to lock your doors, not great for when you run back into the house to grab your purse. Mostly the cons are dumb things that are more annoyances that come with learning more about your car. The first three are my only real gripes. Over all. I think we went with the best choice. The price was worth it. Not over priced, not over sized. I like the kia community. We have had a really great experience with out service provider. Our car is nice enough to feel luxurious, but not well known enough to be targeted. As silly as that sounds. When you're from Chicago you learn the little things are important. It's great that it can fit into small spaces, tow a camper, lug 25 2x4's. Or just move a family across the continental United States. It handles nicely, it rides better and smoother than most SUV's I've ever been in. Mostly I feel safe when I take her out everyday. Nothing feels better then knowing not only am I in a car with great crash test ratings, but if she breaks down Kia has my back. Take a chance, invest in a Kia.

Not a Borrego....but close

The new Sorrento has a more grown up feel....bigger and more of a presence.....like the Borrego of 2009. That SUV is now one of the most sought after used SUVs in the market. I love my Borrego and wish Kia would have continued the large SUV format. At least this version of the Sorento is larger and has a substantial road presence. I was torn between the new Pilot and this version but the warranty and past Kia performance convinced me to continue my Kia loyalty. I hope the Teleride is released soon.....it looks like the awesome full SUV that Kia needs.

Edited After owning this for 4 months: I should not have bought this vehicle , Feeling very bad for throwing money down the drain. The Vehicle Suspension is very bad. Took to Dealer they said everything is fine as per specs. I noticed that the Vehicle is deteriorating very fastly. In Just 4 months - It shakes as if roller coaster and no suspension is there and too much vibration. Gear shifting is not smooth. Ride comfort is not there , Cornering is not good. and engine has become noisy. Also noticed Wind noise is not acceptable - it is getting worse now at 50 miles Wind noise is too much. I am already hating my vehicle within 4 months. ---------------------------- I own my 2016 sorento Lx for just one month now. Though I was very happy initially now I feel there are areas of improvement like air and road noise at higher speeds like 70 mph. And vehicle suspension is smooth but left-right bumpiness is too much that is annoying and continues for a long duration - I always owned sedan and this is first SUV so not sure if this is normal. Ride is smooth. 3 Mirrors and rear view camera All have different zoom ratio which is very confusing and needs real improvement. Overall I am happy. I always owned Brand value cars like Honda. Trusting Kia as they have shown serious improvement. Hope they don't fail me on my first Kia. The warranty of 10 years 100k is what made me trust Kia.

This car is hands down the nicest car in its class. It handles like a dream with superior suspension and clean, tight handling. Seven seats and way too many features to list here. This is a rock solid, high performing SUV. You won't be disappointed. All wheel drive. Awesome. Test drive one for yourself.

This car is just what we needed for our family of 4. We had a minivan and was looking for a reliable car that we could take on long trips that would hold our luggage and be priced for a family budget...The car is roomy and has plenty of cargo space. It looks great and rides comfortably. It is not too big or small just right in size.

impressed! Ive had the car for 9 months-no regrets

Go test drive and look at the SXL-I have the 2 row one, I didn't need 3 rows. I got the 2016 almost as soon as it came out after poring over many crossover reviews, test drives etc. I wanted as much in terms of features and comfort as I could get for a decent price.This was by far the best deal for the money I could find. VERY comfortable, great features- LOVE the heated steering wheel.Extremely sharp styling both inside and out.Mine is black on black and even in deep south, was very comfortable last summer in very hot weather. Only thing I didn't get was the very top technology package with the front camera-I do have the rear camera, lane change warning,cross traffic rear warning, navigation, blue tooth, satellite radio, huge sunroof etc. Many usb ports- first 2 oil changes/services very affordable.After suffering through Mercedes Benz after warranty services I will never get one of those German so called luxury vehicles again. A BMW or MB crossover suv with these features would've run about 30-40 thousand more and it truly looks just as good side by side and is wonderful to drive.

I have had a 2010 Hyundai Veracruz replaced with a 2013 Santa Fe Sport Turbo. Price drove me to Kia for the value. I loved the Turbo in the Santa Fe and was worried about a non turbo 4 cyl Kia Sorento. However price of a lease was the major factor. I was ready to accept less as the Santa Fe Turbo had some very nice features. To my surprise the 2016 Sorento has impressed me more than I could imagine. First is it solid, totally. Closing the doors it has the feeling of a tank. The ride is the best of all the Hyundai's by far. The loose suspension of the Veracruz is gone and the somewhat hobby horse feeling of the Santa Fe Sport is gone. I assume the longer wheel base is the reason. It rides solid and smooth, the steering is tight and responsive. Yes the 2.4 litre engine is not the Hyundai Turbo but it has what it needs to do the job. The car is the LX model with the convenience package. A great car at a very reasonable price and we get more cargo space and leg room then the Hyundai. I could not be more happy. 5000 miles later all is well. No Problems at all. Went to the dealer for a Oil Change and Tire Rotation and they performed 2 computer programming upgrades and a tail gate latch fix what was a problem on some but not mine.

Great car, great value- worth a look

My wife and I were looking for a practical road car for our extended weekend getaways, with lots of room and creature comforts. This car definitely meets all of our expectations, but also works well on my daily commutes to the office. The quality and workmanship are outstanding, and the ride is solid and capable. Great car.

I just bought a loaded 2016 KIA Sorento SXL with the Technology Package and the 3.3 peppy V6 . Having owned a Lexus RX before, luxury SUV and KIA was simply not on my radar until I inadvertently came across an online article about this Sorento that piqued my interest. So after 18 hours of online research and watching YouTube video reviews, I was amazed to read the many glowing written reviews and hear the positive video reviews of this newly designed seven seat Sorento. A trip to the KIA dealer ensued and I am so glad to have went. This 2016 KIA Sorento SXL blew me away when I saw it up close and drove it. Rick Jacobs at Fucillo KIA knew this SUV inside and out, he answered every question I threw at him. With the Sorento's luxurious curb appeal, the way it handled, its numerous safety features, its voice activated navigation, long warranty and beautiful two tone ivory and black Nappa leather interior, I was hooked. After 6 months of driving my Kia Sorento, I am completely satisfied! It is everything I had hoped and expected this SUV to be. There have been no issues at all!!! Incredibly quiet cabin and comfortable Nappa leather makes driving this Sorento a pleasure. Would definitely encourage others to buy this vehicle!!!

I love my new Sorento!!!

After months of searching for a crossover/ midsize SUV, I've finally found it with the Kia Sorento!! I've looked at Hyundai Sante Fe Sport, Nissan Murano, Nissan Rogue, Ford Edge and the Lexus RX350. I was on the fence with all of them until I decided to check out the KiA Sorento. I fell immediately in love with the Sorento. The interior is luxurious with a lot of well appointed materials. I got the SXL AWD 2.0LT with the merlot nappa leather interior with glossy black exterior. It's a sexy looking SUV !! Plus that panoramic moonroof...OMG...amazing!!! The drive is smooth, the seats are very very comfy with 14 way adjustable seating along with 4 way adjustable headrest. This is a very reasonably priced car with all the bells and whistles. I wish Sorento had a lever to automatically fold up and down the second row seats though but that's ok. My only regret is that I didn't get the technology package (adaptable cruise control, surround view and a few others...) . Nevertheless, I'm very happy with my purchase. I actually look forward to driving to and from work now :-)
