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


Review

7500 miles with this Sorento - feels comfortable to drive and has good visibility. In town mpg average is 15- 16 and best on the road at 65 MPH is 25. (accurately measured - not guessing). Most annoying though is the transmission. At 10-15 mph it stays locked in 5th gear and the vehicle will actually start to jump a little as this is too slow for this gear. Step on the gas and you aren't going anywhere in a hurry. The trans should shift itself down to match road speed. This is my biggest disappointment with this vehicle and the dealer says that is just the way it is.


Best Features

Plenty of power, good visibility.


Worst Features

Power outlet plug-in located right in the middle of the storage tray - use one, you can't use the other. Steering wheel controls for radio poorly placed - constantly hitting them and changing radio settings. If you want leather, you have to get sunroof, but head clearance with sunroof is very tight

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


Review

Funny how things end up. I was driving a 2004 A8,top of the line. I was in the dealer every month, and one time got a Kia Sorento as a rental while my A8 was in the shop. Well, fell in love with it, traded in my A8 and never looked back. Fantastic Suv 4x4, no issues, runs great, handle fantastic, fun to drive, good looking. Kia is a great SUV/Truck, simply great. Oh, did i mention the warranty!! WOW!


Best Features

The way it handles, so easy to drive. I test drove 10 different Suv's because I was unsure of Kia. After all my test drives, the kia won.


Worst Features

Maybe auto rear trunk lid, that would be great when your hands are full. And a ipod jack.

Review

I was very skeptical of the Kia brand as I only bought Fords my whole life so far. But I have to say after only a few months of ownership the value was outstanding. The truck performs great and I only wish the gas mileage was a bit better. No issues with 3000 miles on it so far and I am so happy with it. Great performance and stopping. Awesome value!!

Review

I purchased this after looking at the competition. Nothing else in this price range (21,000) can come close. Sorry, but it just would not happen. I was very leery about purchasing a KIA and if not for the warranty I would not have considered this car. I actually have to say, that so far it has been just perfect. I have 5,000 miles now, and everything seems to be in place. The only possible complaint is that the dealer did not properly remove all the protective plastic properly. MPG seems to be a little better now that the engine has broken in. I think I am managing about 20 - 21 mpg on average now. I am still impressed with the performance and power of this vehicle and I am very happy so far


Best Features

Power, wonderfully comfortable interior. Exterior styling is quite nice.


Worst Features

Maybe a little more quite at highway speeds, mine seems to get a little noisy when cruising above 85 mph ;)

Review

I bought my Kia by trading in my Nissan Armada. I was commuting on weekends from my home in Dallas to my parents in Jacksonville, Tx. I went from $65 in gas to $40 and also about 4 more days before I had to fill up. My son has plenty of room in the backseat in his carseat with his books, crayons, and DVDs. The Armada was so high, I always had to open the door for him. Now, he gets on in. I do contract work for a florist and the easels fit nicely. I make arrangements in my home and I have plenty of room to put everything. The engine is very quiet, it handles great in the rain. I love my Sorento!


Best Features

It is roomy, plenty of leg room for a carseat without getting dirt on the seat in front. Great gas mileage. Double phone jacks, and one in the backseat.


Worst Features

Needs more room in center console. Needs a cargo net, more space in front of gearshift to access the outlets easier, larger area for overheard storage because my sunglasses won't fit where they are to be put.
