I'll Never Buy Another Kia
By Shannon on


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


I don't know where to start. This was my first new car purchase and I am so disappointed. I guess I'll just make a list: 1) recurring transmission problem (shifts hard) it's intermittent and the dealership can never replicate it so they won't fix it 2) passenger airbag sensor only works intermittently, they've changed the whole seat cushion twice, it still doesn't work 3) the air conditioning compressor has been replace twice and a pulley once 4) rear hatch rattling 5) horrible gas mileage, 6) terrible sound system 7) rear floorboard trim keeps popping off 8) air blows out all vents no matter what setting you have it on 9) headlights 10) valve cover gasket is leaking, I would not recommend it!
