A very impressive vehicle
By rcf8000 on
2014 Kia Sorento SXL 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 6A)
Here is my report card for my SXL FWD after three weeks of ownership:
Power train refinement; nav/entertainment/climate
controls and displays; blindspot alert; sunroof; rear view camera; build quality
Steering (NORMAL setting); braking; ride; handling; styling; driver's seat comfort; noise levels
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)
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)
Center stack display resolution and brightness.
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.
