This is my 3rd Kia and all have been great vehicles. I hope the 2015 Sorento last as long as the other two. So far it has done really well. I got the Sorento EX and it has plenty of power and is extremely comfortable to travel in. The safety features are wonderful such as the back up camera and the blind spot indicator on the side mirrors. My son has an 2015 Acura SUV and my Kia has similar features and is just as comfortable to travel long distances in. It now has 5,000 miles and so far I love it.

Noisy Engine

I like my 2015 Sorento but when Accelerating the engine sounds like a hot rod doing down the road and it's so noisy inside the passenger compartment I can't hear the radio. I had it looked, thought it might have been the exhaust but the dealership did not find any problems. I have to keep adjusting the up/down volume on the radio to compensate for the loud engine. I was wondering if anyone else had this same engine noise. Too loud to be comfortable. And, I don't care for the "red" light for the odometer, difficult to read. Good highway gas mileage-36mpg.

Sorento- Second Time Around

After extensive reviewing and investigation I decided to purchase another SUV Kia Sorento based on my past experiences with a 2011 model. The car has a very comfortable ride with many extras including the extra incentives for purchasing a 2015 model. This is my third Kia and all my experiences have been very positive. This 2015 model has surpassed my expectations with room, comfort, value for the price and length of warranty (100,000 miles.) I am very happy with my purchase.

Worth the price

by from Los Angeles on January 27, 2016

Good ride, good look. Rides good, better than expected. Holds 7 passengers, but a little tight for tall people.

Nice Ride but Alarm Issues

I bought a 2015 Kia Sorento a month ago. One week after purchasing it, the alarm goes off spontaneously. I lock it, unlock it and the alarm still goes off. I took it into the dealer and they could not find anything wrong with it. My neighbors are starting to complain that it goes off through out the night. What can I do, how can it be shut off? It's a factory installed alarm? Right now, I'm not impressed. This is my first Kia. I've heard a lot of good things, but not getting a warm fuzzy.

Buyer Beware when purchasing used. I purchased my 2010 Kia Rio in June 2014, one month later, the car starting shaking and had no pick-up.  I called and was told that it was a good thing that I was able to get an appointment right away or I could have created more damage.  The repair was the ignition coil and spark plug.  They fixed that one for free.  When asked, they told me that 'it just happens'. About two months after that, it happened again with a second coil... this time I had to pay about $250.   They threw in an oil change for free. About another 2 months after that, it happened again with a third coil.  Again, I had to pay $250... but hey! it was a good thing I got it in on time or it would have been much more money. NOW...Two weeks after that, it happened again with a fourth coil.  They asked me for another $250... well you fooled me once too many times.  I asked, almost begged for help, some kind of assistance or support - throw me a bone but nothing.  When asked why this keeps happening, they said, 'it just happens'. Well, I went home, did a ton of research and after a purchase of high quality spark plugs and a coil, totaling about $35, I repaired the car myself in less than 10 minutes. It's not the fact that the Kia parts are less than sub-standard, and it's not the fact I waited for a total of 6 hours and invested $500 of my hard earned money - it's the point that they took me for a fool.  Did not even try to understand, help or lend advice. Granted, the service guys were friendly, but as far as going the extra mile to keep my business - they didn't.- and maybe their hands were tied and they were not allowed to go the extra mile but World Class service... not here. Oh! they definitely lost at least one customer from this ordeal and two other repeat customers from my family.  Do the math...! I will be removing this nightmare from my garage soon.

Handles well and acceptable power. Manual appears to be incorrect - states UVO system has jukebox feature - mine does not. Also states headrests can be tilted forward or backward. Mine also does not. Active headrests are uncomfortable no matter how you adjust them.
