2007 Kia Sorento EX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 5A)
The engine with select shift is fantastic. The heated leather seats are great quality. The ride is solid, and having low range is key. It is fast, the 5 speed auto is smooth, the torque will let you out accelerate most. This is the perfect sleeper vehicle. Quality issues of Kia are a thing of the past, although I think consumers will be ahead of the press on the issue for a while. Sorento did top JD Power and Strategic Vision 2007 awards, so maybe this is being noticed. If you compare this vehicle like I did, when test driving forget about the badges and this is very hard to beat.
Front seat area room, styling, real body/frame four wheel drive, horsepower matters.
A sixth gear to improve highway mileage. Although my best is 23 mpg, this would make it better.
