2012 Kia Sorento LX 4dr SUV w/Convenience Pkg (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
We bought our Sorento the end of July 2011. The first 800 miles we got 32 to 34 highway mpg. After that it dropped to 28 and below. The dealer has checked it twice and they say nothing is wrong and Kia has said that is normal. Really?? We really like the vehicle except for the gas mpg. If the EPA sticker had said highway mileage was 27 mpg it would have been great. I challenge anyone to to get 32 mpg highway with any normal gasoline. Was the computer made to give you great mpg for the first few hundred miles, but if that continued the engine would burn up? So after about 800 miles it gives it a richer mixture? I am planning on contacting the EPA and have them reexamine the Sorento mpg.
Handling, ride, heated seats, backup camera. Smooth shifting and plenty of room.
Make gas mileage as advertised. Have an outside thermometer with the backup camera.
