Literally anything that can break on this car will. Started off with a deformity in the factory windshield. Had to be replaced within 2 weeks of me getting it. The headrest broke off. Then a recall on the drive shaft. Then the tail lift broke and had to be replaced. Followed by another windshield (tiny crack from a rock that turned into almost half the drivers side view). Then while randomly driving down the road the engine decided to lock up and stops dead in its tracks. Turns out to be a defective engine and has an outstanding recall. Last but not least, BOTH rear door handles snapped completely off. Had to be opened from the inside. Literally anything that could break on that car did. I will NEVER purchase a Kia ever again and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
I like my Kia Sorento, I just don't love it. It handles great, has decent storage in the back, but it just seems cheaply made. The mileage has been a disappointment from the get-go. We feel like we were overcharged for this vehicle. My kids complain about the lack of comfort in the backseat. On a positive note, we haven't had any major repairs in 102,000 miles, but we were very religious in keeping all maintenance up to date. Looks sharp from the front and back, but boring from the side. If I had to do it over, I would not purchase this vehicle.
