We had a 2009 Mazda suv. It lost control in a rain storm & flipped over rolling over 3 times. Too top heavy & marrow wheel base. We test drive every suv on the market. We chose the Kia because of price & warranty. Now have 98,,000 miles on it. Change oil every 5,000 miles with full synthetic Castrol oil & Wix filter. So far no other problems with anything. Doesn’t use any oil between changes. Brakes 1/2 worn. Best car I’ve ever owned.
I was hesitant in purchasing my Kia Sorrento as 2011 was the first year for the revamped model, but I have no regrets. I love the easy handling, interior and exterior the Sorrento. I only have two negatives: 1). Gas Mileage - it can be a gas hog, which is not good with the price of fuel these days and 2). Nav Systems - I do not think we should have to pay to have it upgraded. With so much construction going on and businesses coming and going it should be on a satellite service. What is the point to pay extra for navagation when you result to using your phone all of the time? Kia, please look at my two concerns. Other than that I absolutely love Kia and will most likely purchase again!
