2012 Kia Sorento SUV SX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I bought a 2012 Sorento and only had the car for two months when things started to go really bad with it. Broken axles, motor mounts, transfer case, and the side panel was coming off. Kia fixed these issues because it was covered under warranty. On top of that the SUV did not handle well especially in the rain. I drove it home to DC from Charlotte and we were so thankful we made it safe. I fought with Kia wanting to get another one because that one was a lemon for sure, but they did Nothing! So, I got rid of it and bought another make and model. I do NOT recommend Kia at all. To top it all off, I thought I was saving money, but it wasn't that much cheaper than my new car.
They really need to improve on the craftsmanship.
The suspension is very bad!
Need to install better tires as well.
Purchased my EX, GDI engine in Novermber '11 and after 3.500 miles I have been very pleased with every aspect of the car. I'm averaging 23 mpg in and around town (San Antonio) and as high as 33 mpg on the highway. No complaints about the mileage. Fit and finish and styling inside and out continue to get complaments from my friends. When I purchased the car I had narrowed it down to the Toyota Venza and the Sorento. Although both cars have a very firm suspension, the Venza was choppy and the Sorento was much smoother. I think the duel flow damper shocks make the difference.
Continue to work on the suspension.
I would still like to see it a bit softer.
This car is great, I was first going to get an older model BMW SUV (the X-5 or X-3), no comparrison, the Sorrento its so much nicer and you get more for your money. Its a great looking car and it drives great. I definitely recommended.
We have owned our Kia Sorento for 3 months now. It has exceeded all of our expectations. The car has been flawless and the dealer support has been great. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone in the market for a cross over vehicle. The Sorento EX was almost $10,000 less than the comparable Honda Pilot and much more vehicle for the money than the Honda CRV.
Overall ride comfort is great.
The EVO system with the backup camera presentation has been a very useful option.
The GDI 4 cylinder engine provides adequate power while delivering satisfactory fuel mileage.
Nothing at this time.
We will report back after or summer tip to Branson MO.
