Never again

2004 Kia Sorento EX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


I bought this car used with 50k miles. I had issues within the first week and Precision made me take it to Kia (warranty) and they said we were good. Then it has been down hill. Headlights go out constantly, 4wheel drive constantly on (when the switch is off) check engine light and airbag light is constantly on. I have put money in this car that I don't have and the last time I took it in there were 6 new recalls within it. I will never by a Kia again. The worst part is the trade in value is not good either. So instead of paying this off and using it I will have to get another vehicle and continue making payments. I am stressed driving this car especially with my kids in it.

Best Features

It is as easy as a car to park and the speakers in the car are Bose, which makes a great sound.

Worst Features

Recall these vehicles! I have been pulled over many times because of the headlight going out for no reason. Fix the 4x4 issues, anyone that has a 2006 and under should get a giant credit toward the price of the car, so they can get a reliable car. I feel unsafe in this vehicle and that is not fair
