Very nice overview in the awdand4wd link. From studying the kia.infotech.com shop manuals, the XM (and XM/FL) Sorento have an "On Demand AWD (traverse)" which is in auto mode (activated when appropriate). With the lock button the Sorento goes into "Part Time 4WD" up to 30km/h (19mph). It goes into auto-mode above that speed to eliminate the drawbacks of "Part Time 4WD". Remember that the Sorento has no middle differential. The ... Read More
I had the same problem!! However, I guess I had a better experience, initially anyway, because the dealership did replace my steering wheel.... but now, 3 months later - the new steering wheel is doing the SAME thing!! There must be some issue with the material they used to make the steering wheels. I am going to ask if they will replace this one as well.... I won't hold my breath! ... Read More
I have a 2013 Kia Sorento which I purchased new, has about 11,000 miles on it. I purchased it on July 2nd, 2012. On 9/18/2013 While getting onto a freeway the vehicle made a strange jerking movement and I appeared to loose power. I let my foot off the gas and noticed the ECO light coming on and off, there were no other lights. I then put my foot back on ... Read More
Car Man can you tell me the current (September 2013) money factor and residual value on a 36 month lease for a 2014 Kia Sorento EX, FWD, with the Touring Package, no third seat? Don't need many miles, don't know if Kia goes as low as 10,000 miles per year. Thanks!
I purchased a 2013 Sorento EX in December and less than a month later we noticed that the steering wheel was starting to peel. The top section of the steering wheel started to peel off black flakes of the outer layer onto our clothes and hands. We took it to Green KIA in Springfield, Illinois where we purchased it from to look at it. This was 42 days after we purchased ... Read More
I am very sorry to hear that some of you have not been happy with your Kia Sorento. I have over 40,000 miles on mine and have taken long trips, as long as 11 hours in the driver's seat, with no complaints. Mine is the 4 cyl., LX and it has been all that I expected and more. For those that are claiming that Kia is a poor choice or that ... Read More
The electroluminescent speedometer isn't readable during daylight operation. This causes a very real safety situation when the driver has to take his eyes off the road for 3 or 4 seconds to figure out how fast he is going. The display is entirely programmable by Kia. They have chosen to show the speed by a small dark red marker against a black background. During daylight driving you have to hunt for ... Read More
I have a 2013 Kia Sorento, that I purchased new , it now has 7,700 miles and I have been experiencing some of the same things that is mentioned here. Mine happens when I go from reverse to drive. It jerked me so hard it hurt my neck and back. I thought I ran into someone. There is a lemon law in Ohio and I plan on pursuing it. This is ... Read More
Hello Car Man :) My first time on this board and have read many of your replies to numerous responses from the past years, it helped in purchasing my car. Just noticed there is not much action in the sorento forum so I decided to ask my question. I am deciding to purchase the following: 2014 Kia Sorento Limited - with options the msrp is $41,000 I got quoted $36,600 for ... Read More
Wow these are really good lease/buy rates. I went down today to get a rate factor for a 2014 Kia Sorento I wanted the SX fwd, but all they had was an EX with the touring package. Anyways, I have excellent credit tier1 and they quoted me a factor of .0033 with 61%. I asked them to double check this and to make sure they weren't missing a 1 between the ... Read More
Anybody have any idea what to pay for a 2014 Sorrento that is listed at $37,775? They should be motivated as it is the end of the month. I'm trying to decide between 2013 Santa Fe Sport Turbo AWD that the dealer has for $32,445 ($3,715 off MSRP) and whatever I should pay for the Sorrento. I want the Sorrento, but I also don't want to spend much more (if any) ... Read More

I too have a 2012 Kia Sorento with grinding front brake noise when stopping at slow speeds. So far the dealership has, chamfered the original pads, then changed out the front pads twice, turned the rotors once, replaced the rotors once, turned my complaint over to Kia Corp. with an answer of." Its normal, all new Kia's do that." I have test driven several 2012 & 2013 from the lot & ... Read More
People can defend KIA all they want but when it comes down to it, they got busted and tried to half heartedly make amends. While many of us claim/can show that the mileage is worse than what they fess up to, we have the right to feel poorly about KIA. I have had plenty of cars that met, sometimes even exceeded the MPG EPA estimates under the same comfortable driving habits ... Read More
I also am experiencing vibrations on my new V-6 Sorento. I can notice it a variety of speeds and if you place your hand on the passenger headrest or place a bag on the passenger seat you can feel/see it shaking rapidly. At some speeds you can actually hear it. My dealer has looked at the SUV 3 times now and has changed the complete set of tires. No noticable shimmy ... Read More

First, I apologize for the length of this post, but wanted to include all the information I have. Second, oh how I wish I had found and read this forum before I purchased my 2013 Sorento. I bought the LX 2WD in July 2012 and paid extra for the convenience package which gave me the GDI engine. The sticker indicated it would get 2 mpg more than the standard 2.4L engine ... Read More
I did it! Purchased my new 2013 Sorento EX V6 with option pack 2. Was able to use Costco, rebates/incentives & auto show cash back of $3885 below invoice totaled $26,141 + tax & lic.. What a freaking hassle dealing with the dealership, 4 hrs to pay cash for a car. I took it on a 300 mile cruise last night, might not be the smartest idea Iíve had driving through ... Read More
I bought 2013 Sorento EX in July 2012 which I have almost 5000 miles it. The best MPG I have been able to get is 15 in the city and 18.5 combined. I have called Kia a number of times, they told that I have to drive the car for about 5000 miles for the break-in. I am almost there and nothing has changed. Now they are telling me that itís ...

As of today Carmax had 202 2012-2013 Sorentos for sale! As for price Carmax tends to be a bit higher than other dealers because they have a fixed price and stand behind their guarantee. The comment posted by "Steve" makes sense. There's a new model about to hit the market and the dealers are selling off their inventory as possibly as "fleet". I think I'll hold off until closer to April ... Read More
I think you mean Sorentos, not Kias. Today they had 288 Sorentos for sale from 2011-2013 across the country. Or maybe you are not setting the search parameters correctly. Of the 288 Sorentos for sale today, 217 were LX models, or the base model. If you look at the prior use most say rental, or fleet, so they are fleet turn ins. About 40 or so models were the EX model, ... Read More
This member posted about CarMax blowing out "slightly used" 2012 Sorentos and wondered what the deal is. I made some guesses but the interesting thing was finding this CNet story saying that the 2014 Sorento will be out in the first quarter of 2013. Someone in here probably mentioned it already but I skim so many discussions I overlooked it. So if you don't have to have a new car before ... Read More
It's important to understand exactly what you get with the Sorento (or alternative) "AWD." From the "Owner's Manual" ... "4WD Auto (4WD LOCK is deactivated) ... Vehicle operates similar to conventional 2WD under normal operating conditions. However, if the system determines that there is a need for 4WD mode, the engine's driving power is distributed to all four wheels automatically without driver intervention." "4WD LOCK ... This mode automatically begins to ... Read More
I bought a 2013 sorento 6cyl in Sept 2012. Took it to the dealership in Nov with the same free wheeling (coasting) problems as well as a really tight steering wheel and poor suspension (can feel EVERY BUMP, DIP, AND RIDGE) in the road. I was informed by the service dept that EVERY KIA SORENTO was made this way because it was built like a race car and the race cars ... Read More
Had our 2013 Kia Sorento SX AWD now for about two weeks and today we got hammered with over a foot of snow in a short period of time. The Sorento was a tank and plowed through it with ease. I had total control the whole time and the 6 speed Sportmatic transmission is very smooth. The sportmatic is great because it can be basically used as a clutch less manual ... Read More
Now don't be too quick to jumpo on me for leaving money on the table :D First, the take-away and then the background story.

"The fleet dealer told me that he can check his computer to see what cars are on the assembly line ..." FWIW, two dealers have told me the 2013 Sorento assembly lines have been shut down. Kia USA has announced the 2014 Sorentos will be introduced in February. One dealer told me there are still some 2013 Sorentos "in the pipeline" that haven't arrived at dealers yet.

Hey sprinkler13. I can't say that I am intimately familiar with the Sorento trim levels, but I don't think that there is an SE. There's an EX, LX and an SX. Did you mean one of these? I can tell you for now that all 2013 Sorento models have a $1,500 cash incentive available on leases of them. Car_man Host Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
Hi all, I never thought I'd buy anything but a Nisson, but when my wife decided to replace her 1999 Infiniti I30 with a new crossover, we both decided the 2013 Sorento drove better than the 2013 Murano. The warranty's also better, and the interior finish and features of the EX hold up well in comparison. We must have V6 and AWD. We do NOT want third row seats (wasted space ... Read More

Thanks for the good information. In my quote, $29282 already included all bonus rebate and bonus. This looks like to be higher almost 1000 than your $28300.
Little confused by your numbers. I bought the exact same vehicle EX V6 AWD premium package 2....MSRP was 34,295( had a couple of other things like a crossbar...floor mats)...my walk out price was 28,300 after all rebates and dealer discounts and negotiating....What is the actual sticker MSRP on the window and what is the final walk out price they are giving you??..have you been in military..are you doing any fiinancing with ...

I got a quote for 2013 KIA Sorento EX V6 AWD with premium pkg 2 at $29282 + tax and title/tag in PA/NJ area, MSRP is $ 29650 + 3400, KIA cash back is $1500 and competitive bonus is $1250. Is it possible that I can get OTD (out of door) at ~ $30,000? Anyone has the recent purchase experience?
I'm trying to get technical info on the 2013 Sorento EX V6 AWD. Please help if you can. What type of AWD is used? Here's a categorization I found helpful: https://sites.google.com/site/awdand4wd/ I know the Sorento has a center differential lock, which would put it in one of the "Full-time 4WD" (i.e., "combination of a full-time all-wheel-drive system and a part-time 4WD system") in the above taxonomy. If that's accurate, then I'd ... Read More
I currently an 03 Kia Sorento and an older Lexus RX. I have been told by the dealer that I can only take one offer, either the Loyalty or Competitive bonus, in addition to the bonus cash. By the way, the best quote that I got for a 2013 Kia Sorento EX AWD V6 with Premium Package is $28.5K after rebates.
We did lots of shopping and also drove the outback but wanted the 3rd row for the few times we have all grandchildren in car. The V6 has tons of power in fact takes a little getting used to accelerates quickly . Big difference in power between the 4cyl and the 6cyl. Have had it over a month now and extremely happy with all aspects of the Sorento. If you are ... Read More
Thanks. I'm in central NJ so hopefully I can get a similar deal. I went to a dealership today just to see what the different trim levels looked like in person. I also looked at the Ford Escape (2013 model is much nicer than earlier models) and Subaru Outbacks. I really liked the Sorento the most. Next time I will get a test drive of all 3. I want to make ... Read More
Ed, Can you tell me where you are located. That sounds like a great deal.
I have just finished testing the MPG of our 2013 Kia Sorento with the 2.4L GDI. It's not good. The dash reported MPG is off by 11%!! Before we got the TSB idle fix, we were getting a dash reported MPG of around 20mpg. Since the fix, the dash has consistently been reporting about ~18mpg. So I decided to actually measure the MPG using the fill-up method. Turns out we are ... Read More
Dealer is correct you cannot combine those 2. One of the dealerships that I went to showed me the actually Kia incentive brochure and what combinations that you can use. Regarding the 0.9% if you use that rate you cant get the 500.00 finance rebate...by using the 1.9% rate you can get 500.00 finance rebate...work the numbers it depends on how much you finance and for how long to determine if ... Read More
I asked the dealer whether I can combine the $1250 Owner Loyalty (currently own a Kia Sorento) and the $1250 Competitive Bonus (also own an old Lexus RX). He said I can only choose either one but I can't find that on Kia site. Currently, Kia runs the 0.9% APR plus $1000 bonus cash or $1500 cash back on all trims.
Sure..I got the 500.00 military....one dealer I went to said you had to currently be in military which is not true. I was discharged in 1978...Got competitor rebate..........got financing rebate( had to finance at least 11k which I did for 36mths at 1.9%) and cash back..my total rebates were 3000.00..This was in SEPT so dont know if rebates changed since but they look the same to me...I can tell you that ... Read More
I got the SX, not the EX. MSRP was $37,625. The deal is about equal considering the 2 different cars, and the SX comes with more standard equipment. I went through COSTCO, which gives you dealer invoice before incentives and hold backs.
The dealer didn't include the crossbar which makes your price even attractive to me. Do you mind if I ask what kind of incentive did you use? I am not sure if I can combine the $1500 cash back, $1250 Owner Loyalty and $1250 Competitive Bonus toward the purchase. This dealer said no and I can only choose either one. Really?
That is correct has manual folding mirrors....they offer 2 distinct packages premium and limited.....If you are a member of COSTCO work through their website it will refer you to a dealer thats affiliated with Costco will save you some additional $$$
My dealer quoted $28,900 (with incentives) for the exact same trim and package. From what I read here, $28,300 is the lowest with all the incentives. Question. The Premium Package doesn't have power folding outside mirrors and air-cooled driver seat like the Limited Package, right?
What rebates did you get? Sounds like they ripped you off I am afraid......I bought the 2013 Sorento EX V6 AWD with Premium package which included crossbar on roof rack no trade for $28,300.....I qualified for $3,000 in rebates...MSRP was 34, 200
With Premium Package, Cargo Cover, Cargo Net, Wheel Locks, $31,500.
Ah ha. Good info. All we need is the selling price that the dealer is charging you for the Sorento. Let me know. Car_man Host Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
Hi pearl278. The easiest way for me to evaluate this deal would be to look at this van's MSRP and selling price. Do you have those figures? I see that you are considering using equity from your trade as a down payment on your new lease. There's nothing wrong with trading in an old vehicle when leasing a new one, however you would be much better off having the dealer cut ... Read More
Hi blutop. It's strange that they're quoting you a different residual value because they don't have the authority to alter them. The residual through Kia Financial Services is definitely 57%, not 55%. BMWs usually do lease better than Kias, but the current lease program for the Sorento isn't terrible. I personally would never use an auto broker, to me they merely add another party that has to profit off of my ... Read More
Hi Chris. The numbers for the 4-cylinder version of this vehicle are indeed different. Kia Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a36-month lease of a 2012 Sorento LX 4-cylinder AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00113 and 58%.

Car_man: I should have added that the MSRP on this offer is $24,160 and the Invoice is $23,335. Thank you!
Hi Car_man, It seems you have a lot of knowledge on this topic and I wanted to see if I could get your input - would greatly appreciate it!

I am thinking about leasing for the first time and am wanting a 2013 Kia Sorento front wheel drive LX. Leasing is ... Read More
Thanks dbuilder, I also have a $1000 lease rebate on top of that, and of course, we here in California have to deal with an extra $800 as part of our price quote due to emissions here that are different than other states (and different sales tax) so perhaps that's the difference between the prices we got and the other couple of respondents here. I knew I'd get better gas mileage ... Read More
I was quoted EX V6 FWD Premium Pkg for 26500 and considering purchase
It sounds very similar deal you got. My sorento is also base EX v6 plus trunk net, trunk cover(?) and homelink with compass. I remember there was only $600 difference between GDI-4 and v6 model. Considering What I paid ($28,500 OTD), you've got as good as mine. By the way, v6 mpg is not as good as shown on the report. I am a mild driver and I reads around 18 ... Read More
That doesnt sound like a good deal...I got the EX with the V6 and AWD including the premium package for 28,300 in PA
thanks for the info dbuilder (and also, side show tom). dbuilder, did you use Authority Auto or another broker? I am using Authority Auto but they can only get me into a Base EX (not the V6) for 27,150 out the door - this only has the extra option of homelink rear view by the way. They say I can't get lower... just wondering your opinion and if you liked your ... Read More
Hi Car_Man, I had a very tough time getting dealers to talk straight with me on email. I did this before with my BMW lease about 5 years ago, no problem, but this time around they have been incredibly cagey. Getting an OTD purchase price was nearly impossible and they kept leaving out information and not getting back to me with either the true OTD prices or alternately the included specs ... Read More
Congratulations on the soon to arrive little one, blutop. The easiest way to get a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that you decide to go with calculate your vehicle's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor. Look up the dealer invoice price of the exact model that you want over in the New ... Read More
Hi jackadamia. It sounds like the salesperson that you're dealing with is either very confused or trying to mislead you. Either way, it wouldn't give me a good feeling about working with this dealership. If there's another one in your area it probably would be a good idea to check it out.

2013 Kia LX, I4, no roof rack, cargo cover, very basic. 18500 out the door with trade in at 2.99% financing. I think the final trade in value was 4500, so 23000 out the door with no trade in. Dealership originally valued my trade in at 3500. I went to dealership A and they offered 21000 otd. A week later, I went to dealership B and haggled them to 20,000 otd ... Read More

It was from Glendale Kia, but I bought this car through a broker. I purchased it, not a lease. FYI, Base EX model is very rare. I had to wait more than 2 months to get this car and it was very lucky. I hope it helps you a little.

Hi can you tell me which dealership in Anaheim? I'm in Los Angeles, and trying to buy in the next month. I'm looking for the base EX in white as well. Also, did you purchase, finance or lease, and if you leased, could you share the residual on your vehicle? I'm leaning toward leasing.... thanks!
@lawyerbill1968 = What was the residual value of the car after the 3 years? It looks like you got a smoking deal on this and we are trying to negotiate on one right now. I was trying to find your post in June though I couldn't. Any more details on this would be very helpful!!! Thanks!
Correct - The vibrations are all but gone. At first they replaced the transfer case but that did not correct the vibrations. The michelins were added as a good will gesture - not a dealer warranty item. That means that they couldn't stop the vibrating after mounting/balancing the original tires, 2nd set of Kia tires, and Goodyear tires. The service mgr was excellent because he wouldn't settle for "that amount of" ... Read More
Can you please provide me some additionnal information? If I understand correctly, they only change the original tires for Michelin and you dont feel the vibration at 65Mph anymore? Did they change them under warranty? Last question, can you tell me the dealer name and adress so I can share this information to my dealer and Kia Canada so they stop to say that this is a normal condition. Thanks again. ... Read More

Hi, I have a the same car with 5000 miles on it. I have not had any vibration probelems what so ever. It has Kumho Solas KL21 18" tires and Kia alloy rims. The only problem I have is sometimes the nav package takes 5 minutes to load, the de4aler will reload the software when its in for its oil change other than that its been problem free.

The sticker price is like in the $37K (with no cross bars) and the sale man quoted (not an exact quote) for $33K. I am qualify for the $1500 cash back, $1500 loyal and $1500 competitive bonus on SX model. This looks like he was quoted with the ... Read More
Ok, this may be a bit lengthy but if it helps someone than bonus to you! I am in Chicago IL, I went to 4 total dealerships, I had a friend that worked at one of them. Obviously, he gave me the best price. Had all the standard features of the EX, has the uvo system with rear camera display, bluetooth, power seats with heated front seats, leather trim, infinity surround ... Read More
I think you can do better. I got the 2013 Sorento SX AWD with premium package for $31,850 before tax/title, and got 3.39% financing for 72 months. Someone a couple posts a go got an even better deal than mine, I think. Take that offer to another Kia dealer and get them to beat it.
I am working with Kia in Denver and the msrp is $39,105 and they have offered $32,988 for the 2013 Sorento SX Model FWD with premium package. heated steering wheel, air-cooled seats, etc. They keep all incentives and $500 for financing 3.9%.
I've been shopping for the EX V6AWD w/premium/limited package in Northern NJ. I find lots of LX on dealer lots but very little EX or SX. For EX I received a number quotes via email between $31,995 - $33,500. For SX w/ premium package I was quoted $34,250 (MSRP $37,865). Given low inventory of EX in NJ, may have to turn my attention to Santa Fe or other similar vehicle. Dealers ... Read More
I have been eye balling the 2013 Sorento SX Model FWD for 3 months. Have spoken to about 9 dealerships to get the best deal possible. It appears that the vehicle selling price is as follows: MSRP $36,500; "selling price around" $34,400 and with the current incentives of $2,000, actual price is about $32,400. I have seen in other postings that someone was able to get $31,800 which seems like a ... Read More
This is an amazing deal. May I ask what kind of incentives did you get and how much discount did you get from dealer? I own an 2003 Sorento and I am qualify for the cash back, competitive and loyalty bonus offers. That's about $3000-$3500 from Kia.
I think I just got a much better deal. 2013 Kia Sorento SX w/ premium package, no miles on this one, for $31,800 after rebates/incentives, before tax, title, etc.
Yeah you kind of paid a bit too much there. I just bought a 2013 EX GDI for just $800 more than you paid and I had $4000 negative equity on my trade in. On the bright side, you got a nice vehicle regardless.
Back in March, I bought a 2013 Kia Sorento LX with Convenience Package, third row seats, GDI engine, and UVO entertainment. I looked everywhere in the Southeast. I ended up paying $28,450 plus tax title. At the time, it seemed like a good deal. Now looking at this thread it seems as though I may have grossly overpaid. Anyone purchase a similar trim that I can better compare it to?
