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


Review

So glad I listened to my mom!! I love it! I am the second owner of this KIA. I just bought it 5 days ago from a local dealership here in AZ. with 32,500 miles on it...And it looks, drives and handles like its brand new. I AM IMPRESSED! I know that I've only my KIA for under a week, but I feel very confident in saying that I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a mid size SUV. I work in the rental car industry, so I'm able to drive all sorts of vehicles. And with our fleet changing every few months, I've gotten the full experience of each and every SUV out there sm. to lg. & affordable to expensive. The KIA Sorento gets an A+ in my opinion!


Best Features

Body style, horsepower, and performance. Roomy inside, tinted glass.I could go on and on.


Worst Features

I guess gas mileage, but hey it's 2008, so what do you expect.

Review

Overall I love this vehicle. It is fun to drive and it suits me much better than a sedan. However I bought a black car and the paint's finish looked like someone had wiped down the vehicle with sandpaper. I noticed the defect the day after purchasing it. I fought for 12 months to get it fixed. Neither Kia nor dealer would take responsibility. I have had the car waxed/buffed/shined at least 20 times by professionals and the scratches will not go away. Shame on you Kia!! For this reason I will never buy from Kia again.


Best Features

As long as it's cloudy outside the scratches are not visible. On those days it's a classy-looking car and I'm proud to drive it!


Worst Features

A thermometer and compass would be nice. Would also suggest side moldings to prevent door dings.

Review

I have owned 2 Sorento's,EX is loaded,I love it all, gas mileage is good when comparing to other SUV's, Kia is built better and tougher than most, Great price range, sometimes you get what you pay for , but with Kia you get more than you pay for, Great job Kia!


Best Features

all around comfort and style


Worst Features

the only thing that I did not like was you have to take out the headrest in the back when you fold down the seats

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


Review

So far after 3 weeks the wife is still happy so I'm happy. Comfort and accessing the controls is easy, all within reach. The ride is better than the Taurus it replaced. The steering is something I had to get used to. It seems a little sluggish, not as responsive as other cars I've owned.


Best Features

Sound system, roominess in the drivers seat, the style of the ext. and int.


Worst Features

The steering and of course the MPG. Give the option of a slightly higher geared rear end for those who don't go mountain climbing with their SUVs.
