2014 SXL

I LOVE my 2014 sorento. It has 15000 miles so far in 6 months and no problems. The heated steering wheel is great during the cold weather and the cooled seats were awesome in the summer. The car is fast too. It looks soooo much better than the Equinox, its main competitor. The inside is great. I love the UVO system. so much easier than the MyFord touch in my wife's C-Max. My only complaint is the steering takes a while to get used to. The Kia is much better than my 2006 X3. So if you are looking at Audis, BMWs, MBs, and Volvos, check this one out. You get much more for your money.

I owned the 2011 Kia Sorrento SX FWD for 3 years. I loved this car but wanted AWD because the FWD did not handle well in snow and ice. My 2014 Sorrento Limited AWD SX is a joy to drive. This car is comfortable and luxurious, it has all the "bells and whistles" that more expensive SUVS have live Acura or Mercedes. The AWD handles great. I have had no issue driving in 8 inches of snow and ice during the snow storm last week. Plenty of power yet great on gas. I highly recommend this SUV.

Kia Sorento

We purchased a used 2014 Kia Sorento about 3 months ago. In that short time, it has failed to start about 4 times. After running diagnostics, the Kia dealership told us that everything looks good on the car and that this is a known problem with this model and there is no known fix. Do a search on this and you will see for yourself how common it is (going back years). Kia hasn't bothered to figure out the problem or issue a recall. The dealership is suggesting that this is normal behaviour for the car and maybe we should just have a neighbor charge the battery if we aren't going to be able to drive it for a couple of days. The dealership and the company aren't standing behind their product and apparently don't value repeat sales.

Luv Mine So Much Bought Another

Just gave my 2011 LX v4 manual to my daughter who just moved to Tucson from Cleveland. I knew I wanted to by another because of how reliable, comfortable, and sharp looking my baby was. I am now the proud owner of a 2014 AWD LX v4. She rides beautiful, and the upgrades from 2011 are notable. With leaving in the snow belt, I opted for the AWD even though it will be a slight loss in fuel economy, so they say. The night we brought her home we were anticipating a large lake effect snow event, I was able to make it 12 miles to work in heavy snow with no problems! My mother has a Chevy of similar size and comparing the two, cost, ride, interior room, looks, and features the Kia Sorrento in my opinion wins hands down. Also have to highly recommend Spitzer-Kia's salesman George Woods at State & Bookmark in Parma, OH. Excellent dealership!

I was apprehensive about purchasing a Kia because I knew years ago they were horrible cars. But I have to say they have stepped up their game incredibly in the past few years and have been doing a great job on their cars. About a month ago I purchased my 2014 Kia Sorento and it's my first SUV, previously I owned a 2009 Honda Civic and I needed more room for my dogs. I have to say that I LOVE this SUV. I have been known to have a bit of a lead foot but I am still getting over 25 miles to the gallon. I love the looks of the outside, it reminds me of the Audi SUV, as well as the inside is incredibly comfortable, and QUIET! I barely hear any wind noise when on the freeway or anywhere in the car. I love the bluetooth feature among many other features. I never thought I would write a review on a car but I have to say I am so impressed with this car. I would recommend it to anyone that I know along with any other Kia. Great job to Kia motors! You finally are able to compete with all the other car makers now! Keep up the great work!

Best Bang For Your Buck

I just bought a 2014 Sorento LX and it's great! When you compare standard features with other SUV's in it's class you will see the Sorento is a better value. I test drove both engines and I have to recommend the 290hp V6, especially if you will be carrying several people or you travel to the mountains. The four cylinder could barely move out of it's own way, the cost and mileage difference between the engines is negligible. The warranty can't be beat and there are Kia dealerships everywhere if you need service or parts.

After buying this vehicle in December 2013, we were at a time happy with it. Within 6 months we had a dead battery, the Dealership replaced it with a "better battery". Now just over one year of replacing it, we are having the same issues. Our car is driven every day, and about 13000 miles a year. I am becoming concerned with KIA. I guess the good thing is that we live near the Dealership and they have always given us quick service..

For my first ever SUV I must say so far (I've had it since November 2013) I absolutely love it! It rides smooth, love the GPS (appears to be updated), love the heated seats, I really have been pleased with the radar on the sides of the vehicle that lets me know when a vehicle is coming up on that particular side by a light coming on in the rearview mirrors. If they get too close an alarm goes off and lets you know! I.m getting around 23-25mpg in the city and about 28=30mpg on the highway! I'd recommend one to anybody!
