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


Have an EX with the V6.
Fun to drive, but definitely have the throttle lag mentioned in other posts.
Weirdest thing was a week or two ago started to get a'pulsation/vibration' under acceleration.
Took it to the dealer and they found a snap-ring on the left-front had 'slipped' and was allowing the front axle-shaft to move around.
They put on a new one and found that the 'correct' part was undersized.
They found a correctly sized part and no more problems.
The service manager said this was the 3rd one he had seen.
This was at about 15K miles.

Other than that, a blast to drive, handles great, good power.
