2005 Kia Sorento EX 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I owned this for three years, bought new, as a work vehicle. This has to be the the heaviest build small suv I have ever driven. Although there were numerous trips to the shop under warranty all was taken care of efficiently with little fuss. The gas mileage is abysmal, at 15 city and 20 highway, but built like a tank. I was rear ended at 50,000 miles and all I had was a cracked bumper cover! The honda that hit me was totalled. The car never let me down, and honestly I have been considering buying a used one as a second vehicle for my wife.

Best Features

Durablilty, looks, comfort, 4 wheel drive!

Worst Features

I guess it goes without saying, but gas mileage! I know I know, it is a heavy body on frame 4 wheeler, but 25 mpg would be ever so nice!
