I purchased the EX without any added
features. It's wonderful, fun to
drive, smooth shifting, and looks
great too! I did 6 months of
research, drove every true 4X4 out
there, (not the soccer mom cars, the
wanna be 4X4 - get a grip, buy a
station wagon) The Sorento is the
most comfortable, best value I could
Comfort, reliability, stereo,
appearance, true off-road capability,
smooth ride, driver convenience. You
name it, it's got it!
Gas mileage sucks. Average 17 mpg.
This is nonsense and can be improved.
Kia start thinking about gas prices
A great car to own and drive. It drives
great on the highway and on the trail.
The interior is layed out nice with a
lot of features, that are nice to have.
I get lucky every now and then and get
the keys from my wife so I can drive
it. The vehicle does ride like a truck,
which is fine with me.
We love the heated seats and the hidden
storage in the storage compartment. My
wife loves the look of the vehicle. We
own the EX model so the added features
came equipped on the vehicle. Didn't
have to add a lot to it.
On two wheel drive models front wheel
drive would be nice for fuel economy.
