    2011 Kia Sorento

    All wheel drive 24.7mpg avg Beat that

    Pros: Push botten start proximity key fob.

    Cons: No power rear door

    Third row for grand children they love it. We like milage. Infinity sound w/sub pounds out bass. 2.5K cross country trip WI to MT, we had 30 mph winds that brought mpg down to 20.9 @ 80 mph. That litil 4 banger slid between 5th and 6th with ease. Auto dual climate control and navagation will save my marrige.

    2011 Kia Sorento

    Sorento EX V6

    Pros: Outside appearance

    Cons: Little room inside

    Have owned our Sorento for 5 weeks and about 1200 miles. Very good looking vehicle. Disappointed in the ride which is rough. The middle seats are good for short people and the third row seats might work for anyone under 4 foot tall. Front seats are very comfortable unless you have two adults in the back seat which means you have to move the front seats forward for the second row to have any legroom at all. This makes the front seats uncomfortable and I am only 5'10'. Roof rack is decorative only since crossbars are not available. Seat Leather seems to be good quality. I wish I would have hung on to our 2004 Mountaineer V8 AWD which was much more roomy and versatile. We thought that we might save a little in gas money since it only got about 11 to 12 Mpg around town, but the Sorento is only getting about 16, so the savings was not worth taking on a new car loan.

    2011 Kia Sorento

    Great travelling vehicle

    Pros: The interior space.

    Cons: No dip stick on transmission- I like to check fluids...

    We have been with KIA for a few years, and this is the forth car. (Sedona, Sportage, Rondo, now 2011 Sorento). Very pleased with the ride and big car feel, handling and MPG. But, as always, the warranty rules, especially if you have a great dealer with a great service department. The safety rating is a plus, which we hope never to test!!! Overall quality is great, and I'm pleased that it was built in the US with a majority of US made parts.

    2011 Kia Sorento

    EX V6 vs '06 RAV4 V6

    Pros: NAV system w/rear camera, hands free/voice activated blue tooth.

    Cons: MPG

    I presently own a 06 RAV4 Limited w/ V6, 3rd row seat. I just purchased a 2011 Sorento EX V6 AWD.For just $2K more than I paid for the RAV four years ago,I have leather int, NAV w/ backup camera, Bluetooth, chrome 18”wheels, 6 spd auto,better speed display, rear door goes up not sideways, little more room inside. But, a LOT more performance from RAV,better handling, easier to drive around due to smaller size. Also better mpg. The EX so far w/900 miles, 16.5, 17.5 (18.5 mostly hwy going 70-80 mph.) The ride is softer in the EX not as truck like in the RAV. 3rd row seats easier to get into and little more space. My wife LOVES the EX luxurious int and ext.I like the performance of the RAV.
