2008 Kia Sorento LX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


I bought a used Sorento with low miles a little less than a year ago.
The car has been in the shop for a faulty transmission sensor 3 times without much of an explanation from the service department (the positive is all repairs have been covered under warranty). I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing, as the HARD shift and the passenger air bag comments would have alerted me I might not be happy with the choice. I have lost my faith in this car due to the transmission issues, and am looking at trading it in.

Best Features

The profile compared to other mid range SUV's is a plus.

Worst Features

A review of the transmission appears to be in order based on my experience and the experience of other that have reviewed the 2008 Sorento. I have not looked at reviews of the current model, and maybe the transmission has been addressed.
