So Far So Good

Vehicle

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

Review

We traded a Honda CRV (excellent car) in for a new Kia Sorento SX AWD V6, largely because we needed more power to pull a small trailer. So far, we are pleased with the Sorento, which seems luxurious compared to the Honda. It is much quieter (less road noise) and the V6 engine has great acceleration. Still getting used to all the bells and whistles. Some of the controls are not inuitive. Many adjustments, like the mirrors, cannot be made unless the car is in Park. We do not need 3rd row seating, and would have rather had a bit more storage back there, but it was not an option on our model. Have not pulled the trailer yet. So far we get about 20 MPG for city/commuting and about 25 highway.

Favorite Features

Quiet ride, powerful engine, snazzy interior. It feels like a well-built, up-scale vehicle.

Suggested Improvements

Offer extra under-seat third row storage rather than folding seats. Provide a real extra tire, not a safety tire. The navigation system is confusing, not easily learned.
