I have driven my Sorento for 80,000 miles and the only things that have been repaired or replaced are the brake rotors and a wheel bearing.
The power of the engine is sweet, and I average 18mpg in the city and 21-24 on the highway.
The ride is smooth and the vehicle feels very solid.
I chose it because of it's off-road ability also.
I have driven it on numerous 4wd trails and forest service roads with no problems.
I just wish that there were more off-road modifications available for them.
Engine's power, off-road capability, low price,
solid feel of chassis.
The emergency brake handle needs to be moved to a different location.
It pushes into
my right thigh and is uncomfortable !
I wish Kia would have offered the outside temp reading and the fog lights on the LX also
