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

Review

Our Kia purchase was quite impulsive: we've liked the ride quality right away,and we've been specifically looking for 4x4 capabilities, some economy...bought this as no 4x4 Tuscons were available in Texas :) Body is incredibly rigid,some serious off-road performance.Comfortable and predictive road manners,good breaking backed-up by standard ABS.Reasonable controls,very good visibility,very good stock sound(although we both are missing mp3/USB/AUX jacks).Outlet in the trunk was quite a nice find!Minor problems we've seen so far is 2 blown turn signal lamps(they are doubled,however) which I had replaced and that was the end of it as of now, and main dome light is incommunicado. That's minor...

Favorite Features

4x4 capabilities,sportrack gear shift,conservative but pleasing looks,ride quality.Fuel economy constantly turns out better than I had expected: I always track it, and in 3 (winter) months we get no less than 19 mpg in mixed suburban driving... However I do not push the gas when I don't need to ;)

Suggested Improvements

- USB/AUX/mp3 capability; - Some fuel economy improvement; - Some materials could be just a notch better; - Locking front differential on 4x4's will put it into serious leagues.
