2012 Kia Sorento SUV LX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Don't ever buy Kia! First it was a class action law suit for the timing belt braking. Then it's the gas mileage mix up got way less then it was suppose too. So they send you a credit card with the difference every so offen so nice of them. No my Kia has 90.000 oil don't every 3000 an now it somehow has no oil it at all an prob blew up. An no warning at all. Look it up people Kia oil problems. See for yourself. Kia may fix mine who knows but I doubt it reading the rest of the people with the same exact thing go wrong. BEWARE

Review

I feel badly for all of you that bought the four cylinder engines.
I have just under 30K on my Sorento and it is a great vehicle.
My family and I drove from Iowa to Louisiana and back last week and I averaged 27.5 mpg at 76 mph.
This is a comfortable and relaxed road-trip cruiser.
The ride is a bit stiff, but this is why it handles well.
The Sorento is powerful and economical.
I have to say, it does very well in the snow too.



Best Features

I am 6'3" and this fits me well for long drives.


Worst Features

My only gripe is the torque steer when you pass other cars. If you are doing 50 mph and floor it to pass, you better have the steering wheel held tight. Torque steer is a common issues the powerful front-drive vehicles and this one has it.

Review

Been trouble free, fun to drive, extremely agile in traffic.
Meets or exceeds advertised performance numbers.
Acceleration and braking awesome.

Fuel mileage 30 to 35 MPG (Imperial) in county/town, and 35 to 40 on freeway at 62 to 65 mph, depending on wind.
One day's travel actually 625 miles on tank (15 IMP).
We know there have been economy problems with some models, but not this one.
Ride is firm, but offset by great control in turns and winding roads.
V6 is the way to go.
Best we've owned.

Review

My Sorento actually exceeded the sticker's MPG rating.
Super peppy and holds my entire outdoor sound system.
My profit as a musician just went up.


Best Features

Satellite radio! And the cool onboard computer.
