    2012 Kia Sorento - SX V6 AWD

    Purchased KIA Sorento 12/01/2011. Unable to give a complete rating at this point. But, so far I am very comfortable and enjoy driving this car. The SX Sorento has all the 'bells and whistles' for what I think is a reasonable price, compared to many SUV's that have similar extra's! The Berlin City KIA was excellent in accommodating me to purchase this vehicle! For a car i wouldn't have considered a few years ago, it is a very reliable and comfortable car!

    2011 Kia Forte - EX (M6) Hatchback

    This car is great in the city and on the highway. It is pretty quiet and holds up well to crosswinds (50 mph winds). Fuel economy could be a bit better. Do average 30 MPG for combined city/highway driving.

    2006 Kia Sorento

    GREAT Vehicle

    Pros: Comfortable seating and 'zippy' acceleration

    Cons: Gas mileage!

    This Kia has never been in the shop for any thing other than routine and regular maintenance. It has never failed to start (FL heat necessitated a new battery recently) and runs on a variety of surfaces very well...it can be taken off-road but it has not been.

    2011 Kia Optima

    Sweet Ride

    Pros: Styling

    Cons: N/A

    We have only owned the car for 2 weeks and have yet to make a 'trip' in it, but after driving small SUVs and 'little toy cars' for many years, this appears to be an excellent car...especially when factoring in the price.

    2005 Kia Sorento

    Cons: I wish it had heat and ac both front and back.

    I love my KIA. I bought it used with 17000 miles. I love being able to call the shop if I have a problem and getting right in and getting it fixed. The only problem I have had is my tail lights kept blowing out. They finally put in a heavy duty plug and haven't had a problem since. I also had a sensor go out and it took a couple of days to fix it or get the part, but I was on a trip anyway, so it still wasn't a problem.

    2006 Kia Sportage

    a very good car

    Pros: 4 wheel drive

    Cons: seats are cold in winter

    4 wheel drive works very well in winter snow and light off-roading. Drives nice on highway
