2014 Kia Sorento SXL 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I have a 2014 Kia Sorento SXL with 13,000 miles now. After having this car for 2 weeks go to start it and dead battery. Now 18 months later this problem has happened 7 times! Kia road service has to come out and jump it. Has been towed to dealership to check it out, told everything is fine. I'm just not driving it enough to keep it charged. Went on vacation for six days and left car at airport and came back to a dead battery. When I say dead I mean DEAD. No lights etc...at all. After 7 times and getting no where with Kia service dept. I don't know what to do other then trade it in on another make! Any help or ideas why this is happening would help.

2014 Kia Sorento SXL 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Here is my report card for my SXL FWD after three weeks of ownership:

Excellent:
Power train refinement; nav/entertainment/climate
controls and displays; blindspot alert; sunroof; rear view camera; build quality

Very Good:
Steering (NORMAL setting); braking; ride; handling; styling; driver's seat comfort; noise levels

Good:
Front passenger seat comfort; second row seat comfort; front seat access; instrument panel displays; gas mileage: 20.7 mpg
(suburban driving, calculated; instrument panel display read 22.2 mpg)

Fair:
Third row seat comfort, for persons 5 ft
10 in tall or smaller, on short trips; third row access

Unknown: reliability (no repairs have been needed so far)


Best Features

Center stack display resolution and brightness. Engine quietness.


Worst Features

Speedometer pointer should be brighter. Ditto the seat cooling/heating display. An eight-way adjustable front passenger seat would be nice, as would a power adjustable steering column, but that may be too much to expect at this price point.
