2006 Kia Sorento LX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I was a little hesitant at first to buy a Kia, but once I drove it I knew their quality had improved dramatically over the years. It's a little rough over bumps, but it is a "truck" and otherwise an excellent ride. Long trips are more comfortable than any other car I've owned. I am in love with it inside and out. I am very pleased and proud of my choice. I test drove an Equinox and thought that the seats were awful. Kia did not skimp on interior comfort. The turning radius is amazing for the size of the vehicle.


Best Features

Warranty, tons of hidden storage compartments, exterior color (gray), comfort, smooth ride, style/look, the list goes on.


Worst Features

Fog lights on LX would make it look great (since the holes are already there). But no real complaints.

2006 Kia Sorento LX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love this truck. I used to own a US built, but that will never happen again. The performance is great. After changing to a k&n filter, the truck handled a long drive of 3k miles. I owned a Sephia before and loved the reliability of it.


Best Features

Great interior room, and towing cap.


Worst Features

A little more spring rating in the rear so when it's loaded up it doesn't sag.

2006 Kia Sorento LX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Searched on Edmunds site for 3 months for a mid-size SUV and narrowed my choice down to 3. The Toyota Highlander, CR-V and the Kia Sorento. I went with the Sorento due to price and its over safety rating, not to mention the quality of build compared to the other two listed I researched. You may use a little more gas for a V-6, but not much. Really depends on how you drive. The Kia is well worth the buy. I love it and have not had one problem since I bought it three months ago.


Best Features

Very roomy. The back seat is just as roomy as the front bucket seats. Interior is not cheap and plastic looking, everything inside is in just the right reach. Love that is has side and front airbags. I could go on and on. I made sure I did my research first, and the Sorento is a well made car.


Worst Features

None at this time. A good, well made safe vehicle.

Review

We have driven our Kia for over 2 years and are planning another trip this winter with it. It seems rugged, comfortable and reliable to drive,


Worst Features

Fuel economy (like all SUV's) needs to be addressed for the future.
