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


With 14k miles behind me I am mostly satisfied with the purchase. Visually this is still one of the sharpest mid size suvs around for my money. Very solid build, well laid out interior and rugged exterior put the domestic models to shame. Four wheel drive works like a charm, engine has plenty of punch for highway cruising or zipping through traffic. Engine sounds a bit loud in passing gear and transmission seems unsophisticated and tends to shift at odd times. Gas mileage is also a big disappointment. Overall this vehicle offers a lot of bang for the buck and as long as it keeps humming along and I don't have to take advantage of the fantastic warranty offered it will serve its purpose.

Best Features

Rugged good looks, comfortable, smart interior layout, price fully loaded well under 30k.

Worst Features

Tighten up transmission, engine refinement. Hybrid model.
