Always buy the big engine.
By buiford56 on


2012 Kia Sorento LX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I feel badly for all of you that bought the four cylinder engines.
I have just under 30K on my Sorento and it is a great vehicle.
My family and I drove from Iowa to Louisiana and back last week and I averaged 27.5 mpg at 76 mph.
This is a comfortable and relaxed road-trip cruiser.
The ride is a bit stiff, but this is why it handles well.
The Sorento is powerful and economical.
I have to say, it does very well in the snow too.

Best Features

I am 6'3" and this fits me well for long drives.

Worst Features

My only gripe is the torque steer when you pass other cars. If you are doing 50 mph and floor it to pass, you better have the steering wheel held tight. Torque steer is a common issues the powerful front-drive vehicles and this one has it.
