Very Pleased!By J.D. Redmond, Jul 10, 2013Traded my 2005 Kia Sorento EX in on this slightly used 2013 Kia Sorento LX V6 AWD and third row seating. It had 13,000 on the odometer and still has the new car smell. Drives fantastic, the power from the V6 is amazing. The handling with the AWD and the ESC allows the SUV to corner like a sports car. Gas mileage is good with 20 in the city and 26 on the open road. No bad for a seven passenger vehicle. Way better than my 2005. Nice basic stereo with satellite, CD, AM-FM, full iPhone, iPod support with display (using the Kia iPhone cable) and full Bluetooth support with hands free and music streaming. And staying with a stock stereo means my side glass stays intact and no huge holes in my dash where my stereo used to be... ...moreGreat handleing, great gas mileage, lots of room, nice stock stereo setup, 7 passenger seating. Looks great!

Very disappointed BEWAREBy Evelyn, Oct 30, 2013Leased a 2013 2WD 4dr LX on December, 2013. What a nightmare this has turned out to be. While driving the car has stopped 4 times on me when I press the brakes or when I'm at a red light. Took it to the service dept. waited for 3 hrs. before they told me that I would have to leave the car. They gave me a rental but waited three days for them to tell me what is wrong with the car. On the third day they said because of the holiday they have not been able to figure out the problem, finally they did it is the transmission that has to be replaced. In all this time I have been the one contacting them. Where we leased the car always has an excuse that everyone is busy and that they will return the call but never do, then I call the service dept. and they cannot tell me exactly how long this will take. What a mistake to lease from KIA. Beware of KIA nice when you go to Lease or Buy but once you do they do not care anymore. ...morecomfortable

Mixed feelings on '13 SorentoBy Joe, Jun 21, 2013Bought this Sorento for my wife on her birthday. We previously had an '07 Kia Rondo and loved it. Because they no longer made the Rondo, we decided to upscale to the Sorento GDI. We have only put on 2650 miles so far, but I have noticed some oddities about the engine and transmission. The engine seems to hesitate at times, but upon depressing the accelerator a little more, it accelerates as though I had "floored" it. My wife accuses me of "gunning it", but it seems there might be a problem with Kia's "fly by wire" system of acceleration. The only other quirk i've noticed is that on hilly terrain, the transmission at times does not downshift soon enough. I have had to shift into "Sportmatic" mode (manual shift) at times just to maintain speed. We have not had the Sorento back to the dealer yet, but believe me we will be talking with them about the things I've just mentioned. Other than the above, my wife loves the car. She loves the roominess as well as the firm ride. ...moreRide, Roominess, Options
