7500 miles with this Sorento - feels comfortable to drive and has good visibility. In town mpg average is 15- 16 and best on the road at 65 MPH is 25. (accurately measured - not guessing). Most annoying though is the transmission. At 10-15 mph it stays locked in 5th gear and the vehicle will actually start to jump a little as this is too slow for this gear. Step on the gas and you aren't going anywhere in a hurry. The trans should shift itself down to match road speed. This is my biggest disappointment with this vehicle and the dealer says that is just the way it is.
Plenty of power, good visibility.
Power outlet plug-in located right in the middle of the storage tray - use one, you can't use the other. Steering wheel controls for radio poorly placed - constantly hitting them and changing radio settings. If you want leather, you have to get sunroof, but head clearance with sunroof is very tight
