2012 Kia Sorento EX

2012 Kia Sorento EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
Just picked up my first Kia product this past weekend. I was looking for a two wheel drive base EX, but no one seemed to have those, so I "settled" for the AWD. It takes a bit of a hit in MPGs, but for an AWD SUV, it's still getting great mileage. No complaints so far, but we'll see how it holds up over time compared with my usual Nissans.
Push button start with smart key, six speed automatic, GDI four cylinder engine, exterior styling, interior design, especially in beige.
My only complaint at this time is a design decision. Although it provides great room when inside and probably helps with side impact, the door sills seem to be wider than usual and the step bars made that width even worse. I'm tall, but this issue seems to cause the entry/exit to be a bit odd. I'm sure I'll get used to it.
