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


Bought my 2006 Sorento in 2009 with only 15,000 miles on it.
If you'd have asked me 5 years ago if I'd buy a Kia, I'd have told you no.
This one had all the bells and whistles I wanted (heated leather seats, moon roof, etc).
Being the 2nd owner, I still had 45K miles left on the bumper to bumper warranty when I purchased it and, here I am at 57,000+ miles and still thrilled.
Is it a BMW? No, but I knew that going in.
After 2 years of ZERO issues, I'm pretty happy.
Oh, it does tend to need headlight and tail lights changed frequently but whatever.... even me, a girl, was able to do that myself and for cheap.
Would I recommend, yes, definitely.

Best Features

It's very appealing to the eye and fun to drive. It's "zippy".

Worst Features

Smoother ride, which I guess Kia has done in the newer body style, better gas mileage.
