2012 Kia Sorento LX 4dr SUV w/Convenience Pkg (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


I purchased the LX with the GDI Engine. So far I am impressed with the way it drives. I had a 2010 ford escape that was plagued with problems. Leith Kia in wendell, NC really worked with me to get me into a 2012 sorento. It really drives smooth, I'm not sure why they say its a firm ride...has anyone rode in a civic? Thats a firm ride. I got the LX w/convenience pkg for a little over 23K. My only complaint is that at low speeds (idle or under 5mph), the GDI engine seems a little "rough". However it does accelerate VERY smoothly (smoothest tranny I've felt) and gets up to speed adequately. The GDI engine won't blow your hair back or anything, but there is a little extra pep to get into traffic

Favorite Features

3rd row, extra storage where the jack is.

Suggested Improvements

GDI engine idles rough, I hope this doesn't develop into a problem. No Uvo in the LX?? It should be standard on all models in my opinion. The stock phone system is good, but come on now, its 2011, bluetooth tech is really good right now and it needs to be utilized.

If you don't mind, would you please post the sale invoice so we can use it to leverage with our local dealers? Negation is a hassle with these people and they don't believe on the out the door prove @23k. Thx
