2014 Kia Sorento SUV SX 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl 6A)
still runs like a beast!! Sharp/edgy look, Drives/handles very well in the snow/rain. I have 4 kids so this 7 seater is perfect. The last row is good for small children because it is a tight fit and little room for cargo behind that-but otherwise a great family SUV. we absolutely love our Sorento!
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 SUV EX 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl 6A)
Comfortable and looks great. I love the interior. The controls are very easy to use.
Fuel mileage isn't the best but using higher grade fuel I notice I get better fuel mileage.
The pick up once fuel pedal is pressed is awesome.this car " gets on it " fast.
VERY comfortable and quite ride. My car is loaded with all the features. Sound system is far above normal .
2014 Kia Sorento SUV LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
I wanted an SUV with leg room (I'm 5'11) and enough room for my 4 year old in her car seat to have enough leg room. The Sorento does not disappoint!! It's rare when I have to move my seat forward to drive comfortably, and in the Sorento, I have to do just that!
I also wanted decent MPG and AWD. Hard to find in the same vehicle. I've gotten as good as 26.9 MPG on the freeway pushing 80 MPH through a whole tank. I average 20-21 MPG in town.
-The 4cyl is gutless
-Third row is not an aftermarket option - I got this car with hopes of adding because AWD and 3rd row are hard to find.
-headlights could afford to be brighter. The line where the light ends is frustrating.
-excellent fuel economy
-tall driver friendly
-tall passenger friendly, even in the back seat!
-cargo space in floor
-6 speed trans is pretty great
-LATCH system on both sides of car in back seat
-turns like a car, I love the turning radius!
-handles great in the hills
-head lamps need to shine a bit higher/farther
-make 3rd row an aftermarket option
I have had my Sorento for a few months now and I still love driving it. I like the handling, the lack of road/wind noise, and all the extras that came with the LX model. Mine also came with the 3rd row seat package. The 3rd row is pretty small, but I love how the whole middle row can slide forward and back to give the 3rd row a little more room if needed. With that option, it makes having bigger people in the back a little more realistic. The 4 cylinder engine is surprisingly strong(though I haven't driven the V6) and it is enough power for most peoples needs. If price isn't a concern, obviously the V6 would be the way to go. As of now, I plan to keep buying Sorentos in the future.
I love how quiet the car is. There's a lot of wind where I live so its nice to not have to listen to it when we drive. I'm impressed with the power the 4cyl has with how heavy the SUV is. It's not a lot of power, but it's more than I thought it would be.
I like how much room the Sorento has when the 3rd row is folded down. My wife and I haul lots of wood furniture and so far we've been able to fit everything we've hauled.
I love how versatile the Sorento is. The 3rd row seats can be folded down individually and the 2nd row is very versatile as well...way better than just the normal 60/40 split seats. And like I mentioned before, the 2nd row slides forward and back.
The UVO system has a lot to it and when it's working, its really nice. This may just be my experience, but I've had some issues with it freezing up and not showing the names of the songs on my iphone sometimes but then showing the names other times. It just seems to act up once in a while and it can be frustrating. On the plus side, I love all the options for music and charging your devices.
