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


Just purchased my Sorento two weeks ago and although new, I'm very pleased with my purchase. The most common complaints that I've read are ride firmness and mileage.
While I agree that the ride is a bit firmer than I like, the trade-off is better handling...less sway, roll and pitch.
I got the six cylinder because I wanted more power (I live in Colorado and glad I did).
While people complain about the poor mileage, I've owned a number of six cylinder vehicles in the past and the Sorento mileage is about the same - 300+ miles per tank of city driving. Beyond that, this KIA drives, looks and handles like CUV's for thousands more! I'm VERY happy with the looks and feel - a great value!!!

Best Features

Plenty of power and more fun to drive with a six cylinder, Bluetooth, Syrius, IPod integration, third row seat (if needed in a pinch), great looks (Bought it in black with tinted front windows to match the back windows), fit and finish.

Worst Features

Wish it was slightly less firm ride and had a sliding second row seat.
