2006 Kia Sorento EX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


If it ran all the time, this would be the best small SUV on the market. It's well appointed. It drives beautifully. It's powerful and not to bad on gas. All in all, I'd say Kia is on the right track. There's only one drawback. It must have been built by a drunken monkey on Monday morning after a long weekend. The headlights burn out in pairs every 3-4 months. I'm on transmission number 3 and the radio needed to be replaced after 9 months. The most aggravating thing is the alarm system which has a mind of it's own. It's been 2 years and it still triggers whenever it feels like it (2AM in the garage or on the highway at 65 MPH) leaving you stranded until a tow truck takes it home to KIA.
