A stiff suspension and a bog in acceleration hurt this suv's rating.

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


I took delivery of my Kia Sorento with the optional V-6 a little over a year ago. After several months I noticed a bog (flat spot) when accelerating from a stop. The Kia dealership said to put gas treatment in the tank which I did but this did not help. The problem still persists. The suspension is very stiff and even the smallest bumps in the road can be felt. I driven a Ford Edge and a Jeep Cheerokee and their suspensions were much softer. Also, one of the side steps on my suv has come loose. Apparently from the factory a screww was not tightened enough. I like the looks of the Sorento but it is not a refined vehicle. I'll probably trade it in on another vehicle soon.

Worst Features

Better tuned suspension, a better looking steering wheel, a more refined engine.
