2012 KIA SORENTO
We purchased this because we were looking for an affordable 7 passenger vehicle. The Sorento has the most comfort and features for the price. It is used daily for work and family travel. Second row seat folds forward for easy access to third row and the navigation system is helpful. Handling is good and it is a quiet ride. Mileage has been 24-25 combined city/highway. Check out the Sorento if you are looking for an affordable 7 passenger vehicle.

Needed a second car for my family. Use this car for our family trips. We like this SUV.
2003 KIA SORENTO
Have only owned the car for 5 weeks, but very happy with it so far. More than anything, we are dealing with issues from the past owner who did not take care of their car well. Also would HIGHLY recommend to check if timing belt has been replaced (if over 90K miles), about $1,000 repair; which we did not do, and would have otherwise potentially caused us to blow the engine if not done. Otherwise car runs really well, love the peppy engine and smooth transtion. Very roomy SUV!
Used Kia Sorento Information
The midsize crossover from Kia is now in its second-generation and has become popular for its value proposition. The Kia Sorento entered the market in 2002 as a body-on-frame (truck-based) sport utility with a very capable offroad automatic four-wheel drive system and low range gearing. A capable four-cylinder engine or more powerful V6 were available along with a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic (later changed for a five-speed) transmission. A large fuel tank, stiff ladder-framed chassis, and other features along with its low entry-level price point made the Kia Sorento popular.
Upgrades in 2007 added a more powerful V6 engine offering, putting it more on par with the competition's heavier-hitting engines. The five-speed manual transmission and four-cylinder engine were dropped and a five-speed automatic transmission became standard. The highest crash test ratings were had in the 2007 model year as well, boosting the Sorento's credibility as a family hauler.
In 2009, the second-generation of the Kia Sorento was introduced and became the first Kia model to be built in the United States for the North American market. The new Kia Sorento features a grille and body style more in line with the company's current design language. The four-cylinder engine option returned, but the body-on-frame was changed to a unibody style to better compete with market demands for better road handling and comfort. This new-generation Sorento continued the crash test wins, receiving high marks globally, including a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). A major facelift was given to the second-generation Sorento for the 2014 model year.
