2004 Kia Sorento - LX (A4) 4x4
Pros: Style is an asset
Cons: Poor fuel economy
Advice: Don't buy if you don't want problems over 60,000 milesOur Sorento LX had been relatively troublefree for the first 60,000 miles, but since, the vehicle has been problem prone. The engine throttle body sticks and causes the engine to idle much too high. The warranty states it would be covered to 25,000 miles. What a joke. The last problem (leaking surge tank) occured recently and caused my engine to overheat with possible engine damage. I would not buy another Kia Sorento if they paid us to take it off the dealer lot.I also have to mention, the Kia dealer would fix both problems for $1,400.00. Stay away from the KIA Sorento if at all possible, in my opinion.
2007 Kia Sorento - LX 4x2
Advice: If you live in Texas stay away from Classic Kia (formerly Buz Post in Arlington)I love this car. If you test drive it once, you will want to own it. The car handles great and looks great. You won't find another car this great for the price.
2006 Kia Sorento - EX (A5) 4x2
Pros: The ease of handling the electronic features
Cons: The wind noise and the very back seat
Advice: If there is a wind noise take it back to the dealer and have them check the luggage rack is placed on correctlyWhen car was bought it was later found that there was a bad 'wind' type noise when going over 45 mph. We promptly returned it to the dealer. Their explanation was the luggage rack was not put on correctly. Whatever they did, it fixed the problem. The car is lovely except for the very back seat which is a bit uncomfortable, but overall the car is wonderful.
