Purchased my EX, GDI engine in Novermber '11 and after 3.500 miles I have been very pleased with every aspect of the car.
I'm averaging 23 mpg in and around town (San Antonio) and as high as 33 mpg on the highway. No complaints about the mileage.
Fit and finish and styling inside and out continue to get complaments from my friends.
When I purchased the car I had narrowed it down to the Toyota Venza and the Sorento.
Although both cars have a very firm suspension, the Venza was choppy and the Sorento was much smoother. I think the duel flow damper shocks make the difference.
Continue to work on the suspension.
I would still like to see it a bit softer.
