Good car but had problems
By Chezjuan on


2007 Kia Sorento LX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


I like the body style, passenger and cargo space, and power of the 2007 Kia Sorento, but I have issues with the quality of the car. Not only were there two recalls that affected the safety (front seat airbag sensor, stop lamp switch) but my car had several engine problems. Also, the OEM battery would not hold a charge and had to be replaced within 6 months.The biggest problem was that the car would refuse to start intermittently - the engine wasn't getting fuel. To get it to start, I would have to pull the fuel pump relay and replace it, then the car would work fine. After a year of trying to fix that (under warranty), the car started cutting out when driving so I replaced it.

Best Features

cargo space, front wiper heaters

Worst Features

better quality covers for the LATCH anchors in the rear - all three of mine broke within weeks of getting the car. Improve quality of engine/electrical system
