My 2012 Sorento was great so I traded to 2014 when time came.
The auto dim feature of the instrument cluster makes it difficult and at times impossible to see speedometer needle.
Kia says it is "working as designed"
"Kia cannot help you"
It is bright with no problems at night/in garage and on cloud/stormy days.
Since design features are not covered by warranty Kia America refuses to address the matter.
7 others have filed same complaint with National Safety Board.
I must get rid of the car before i have an accident while trying to locate my speed.
Also window shade rattles
"no adjustment can be made".
Will be my last Kia.
Pickup of V6 and exterior appearance
Must get rid of auto dim feature for instrument panel.
I fail to understand why the customer has a control
feature for the illumination that is overridden by some software package.
The entire issue can be corrected with a software adjustment but Kia refuses to consider it..."it is working as designed"
second row seating needs to be able to be on moveable track.
Need a little more room in front as well.
I picked up my Kia at a Cadillac dealership.
The car was about a year old with 3500 miles on it.
The price was $8000 below sticker. For the past 4 months, the car has been stellar.
Excellent ride, good handling, excellent gas mileage and it's comfortable. The car was well equipped with panoramic sunroof, heated and cooled seats, power liftgate, power folding mirrors, nav, bluetooth, music hard drive, dual power seats, side radar, 3rd seat, rear a/c. I've gotten 24-25 mpg with regular driving around the city.
It gets 29-30 on the road.
Love the sunroof and the nav.
The carpeting is shameful.
Looks more like pads.
The floormats look better than the carpeting. Headrest need to be redesigned - totally uncomfortable.
I originally had a 2012 Sorento that I travel in for my work.
The vehicle was very comfortable, a pleasure to drive, no fatigue after a long road trip, I liked my 2012 Sorento.
When it came time to trade I went back to the same dealer I purchased my 2012 Sorento from and they showed me the 2014.
I really liked it.
The 2014 Sorento looked like the 2012 but the changes that Kia made a a very good vehicle into a great vehicle.
My 2014 is is much quieter, hardly any road noise and 0 wind noise, the ride is great, the new seats are even more comfortable and the general overall appearance is just great.
The Bluetooth and voice command are also flawless! You wont be sorry with a Kia!
There is plenty of room for me and Im a big guy, 6" 220lbs. The back seat is alo roomy.
I dont have the third row so I cant comment on that. The cargo room is top notch.The Bluetooth is great as is the voice command. The instrument cluster is great and easy to read.
The quality of the vehicle is top notch.
I get comments on my 2014 Sorento all the time about how it looks and how comfortable it is.
Im very pleased with my Kia and will buy another Kia product without hesitation.
Just got the 2014 SXL model. What a great SUV!-- and this is coming from BMW-- which I will never buy again. The Sorento has great handling, pretty good gas mileage and it looks AWESOME! This is my first KIA and I have a feeling I will be a long time customer.
Friends of mine also own the new Sorento and have told me that the reliability is fantastic. If you are in the market for a mid-size SUV, I would definitely recommend a test drive.
There are too many features to list-- but I would have to say the UVO system is awesome. Bluetooth / Streaming Audio works perfectly and sounds great. Panoramic sunroof is the largest in its class. Heated / cooled seats in Nappa leather (front AND back seats) are very comfortable. Cargo space is more than adequate. My 3 large dogs love it.
This is my first ever SUV or CUV ( whatever you call it ). I have been a loyal Kia owner for the past 10 years but this is my first time not buying a compact car. I am very impressed with my 2014 Sorento. It has all the extras that you can get on the LX model. Myself and my kids love the heated front seats, especially with the cold winter we have had this year. The UVO is a big upgrade from what I had in my 2010 Forte and the rear camera is useful as well. With my kids getting older I just wanted to get something that was bigger with more room and safer on the road. This is it!
Heated front seats, Uvo, rear camera and the ride quality is better than I expected. I am still getting used to sitting up higher than I have been in my past vehicles ( It's nice ).
