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


Review

I just purchased the 2006 Sorento with 35K 4x2 5 speed manual. The 3.5 L V6 has more power than it needs which will hopefully last much longer as a result. What little body roll there is, it is very steady and comfortable around tighter curves and corners. The steering radius is extremely tight and impressive. I am fairly confident that I will be remaining a happy customer. Cheers!


Best Features

Ground clearance, ride comfort, quiet, Well organized control panels and storage, great power, decent handling, responsive and did I say QUIET!!!

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


Review

My 06 Kia Sorento was the first NEW vehicle I had ever purchased. I figured with the used cars and trucks in the past, I had been spending too much in repairs. With the warranty of the Kia 10 yr/100,000 mile how could I go wrong? So far I've driven 51,000 miles in my Sorento and other than regular oil changes and tire rotations I've not had 1 problem. The gas mileage could be a little better, but I get 19-20 mpg in the city. I think most who claim poor mileage could be due to poor driving habits. Also my Sorento in a manual. I would suggest you check out the Kia Sorento if you are looking for a mid sized SUV!

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


Review

I have had this vehicle 11 months. I bought it with 37,000 and only have 41,000 on it now. I drive mostly small town, light traffic but lots of lights. Speed limits of 30-35 mph. Gas mileage is about 15.5. I am also having problems with headlights, brake lights, etc. Have replaced both headlights, a marker light, and one brake light twice. Luckily hubby is a mechanic but there must be something going on if lights keep burning out. On the other hand, lights are easily changed and cheap! But still.


Best Features

Rides awesome, very comfortable and drives like a small sedan. Also very quiet.


Worst Features

Fix the stinking light problem.

Haven't had any issues with the car other than frequent burn out of rear lights. Fun to drive, nice to travel in, and plenty of room for 4. I would get another one in the future!

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


Review

I researched my Kia and made my decision to buy. My Kia runs well but have had many other problems, the wheels lost their paint, Kia replaced them, the new set is losing their paint. The gas cap door latch broke, the gas pedal stuck, I had to pay. I've replaced 4 headlights 1 turn signal and 1 break light within 6 months at my expense. Did I make the right choice? No. Also on my second set of tires.


Best Features

Ride, body style, stereo


Worst Features

Fix the electrical system
