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.
That's your primary complaint - you can't see the speedometer? You WILL get into an accident if you are fixing your eyes on the speedometer instead of the road. Once you drive into a shaded part of the road you will know how fast you are driving. generally, drivers know if they are driving too fast or slow just by gauging the cars next to them.
How do you say your favorite feature is the "Pickup of VG..." then rate the performance with two stars?
Did you look at the specs and test drive the Sorento before buying it? You should have known about the room in the front. It's not an Explorer or Traverse. And, if you did test drive the Sorento then you have no reason to complain about the Interior Design.
Your review is not helpful but contradicting.
