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


Got this cause I'm 6'4",280lbs and it's very comfortable. Except for the parking brake placement I'm very comfortable sitting in the SUV. Love the soft fuzzy cloth, engine power (much better than Sportage), being higher so other's head lights aren't blinding me, and it looks really stylish, very similar to a Lexus. Warranty is great & we paid a bit more for a 3rd party extended warranty to make it 10 year, 100k mile bumper to bumper. Fuel economy could be better, but with the price & warranty, it'd be cheaper buying the extra gas then buying a Ford Escape or Saturn VUE.

Best Features

Interior space, styling, vehicle height and engine power. Standardized option packages made it easy to shop and avoid add ons. Like step rails, bright lights, alloy wheels, warranty, fabric, front floor mat clips keep them from creeping up.

Worst Features

Parking brake is in a horrible position. When I sit in the car, the hard handle is a stick poking me in the leg. Thumbs down on fuel economy. Would like optional extended warranty through Kia. 100lb limit on roof rack makes them almost worthless. Unfocused map lights.
