Great car with 239K miles
By Paul on

Vehicle

2004 Kia Sorento EX Rwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

239,000 Miles and is still going strong. I am still very pleased and had no major mechanical issues. It rides very comfortably and has not developed any annoying squeaks or rattles. The interior has held up as well if not better than my previous Acura and Volvo. Great sound system. Maintenance has been about average and I have replaced the timing belt twice at 80K miles and 160K miles. If you are considering the '04 Sorento be sure that the 2 recalls (crankshaft pulley bolt and the intake manifold butterfly valve) have been done. Replace the coolant tank with the redesigned one. no increase in oil use even with 239K miles. Average about 20- 21 MPG HWY. Better than the 19 listed.

Favorite Features

I average about 45,000 miles per year and the ride is very smooth and patronizingly quiet. Not tiring to drive. The styling has held up well, and does not look dated. The engine performance seems well matched to the car. The Audio system (on the EX) is the best I have heard in a production car.

Suggested Improvements

Aux Audio jack.
