...until I bought my 2006 Kia Sorento! I have owned my Sorento for 7 weeks and have put over 4,000 miles on it, mostly commuting. This vehicle is comfortable, powerful and fun to drive. It is good for lugging the kids to practice and it looks good when I take my wife out. My wife and I have always bought Chevy trucks before and after test driving the Kia Sorento and experiencing quality again, we were sold. The Kia Sorento is the perfect all around family car.
Exterior: The body style is to die for. Interior: The leather seats are comfortable, the front seats have heaters, the stock stereo is top notch and there is a lot more room than you would expect by looking at it from the outside.
Fuel economy. Those who say they get 20+mpg must be driving all downhill. I am lucky to get 17, and that is half city and half highway commuting.
