Bought my car in Washington State and drove to GA.

Outstanding performance, drove 5000 miles across country, pulling a small uhaul. did a great job. Couldn't ask for a better car. I'm 70 years old.


Greatest feature: roominess & fun to drive

This car met all my expectations, plenty of leg room, fun to drive. In'm selling it because I have to downsize. The cargo area is awesome. Gas consumption: I'd say average. Acceleration is great. The infotainment is good and so are the safety features.


Very Reliable vehicle

It’s a great vehicle and very reliable. Plenty of power. Dealerships remote start they put on isn’t that great. Very beautiful exterior and great handling with excellent performance for a 6 cylinder motor.


Excellent 5-star safety ratings and seats 7!

This car gets wonderful gas mileage and seats up to 7 people! It has excellent 5-star safety ratings so my family and I feel very safe in it. There is plenty of room and it is very versatile. There are little surprises throughout the car that you would not normally find in a car of this price range.


Excellent car for an excellent price

Has Bluetooth, several USB ports. Blind spot assistance and a backup camera. Was a better car than I anticipated finding used. I’m very pleased with it.


Kia Sorento hits all the marks!

Okay you're in the SUV car market. You want something that is reliable that's Kia Sorento. You want something that will haul a bunch of children in a pinch. That is Kia Sorento. You want something that is not too much bigger on the interstate that's more tasteful then a minivan that is Kia Sorento. You want something that's not too bad on gas but has lots of power. That was the Kia Sorento LX which now for 2020 is the S Series. You want something that has good styling that is Kia Sorento. And last you want a good warranty at a low price point. That is Kia Sorento. Transmission is Flawless with the 8-speed Transmission in the automatic V6. Gas mileage numbers are around 29 to 32 MPG Highway. I'm getting about 25 miles per gallon around town. I tend to get about 28.9 in mixed driving. And if I totally go crazy and hit the accelerator a lot I only get 23.9. Totally impressed by the 0 to 60 times. Often time I find myself speeding at 80 miles an hour which feels like I am only going 30. Love the handling doesn't strain on any curves. Excellent room especially when I lay the third seat down. And I have a ton of room when I lay all the seats down. I can fit half my house in here when going on a week trip. Totally happy with this vehicle can't believe they're redoing it for 2021. I hope it is a winner like this one. If I could improve one thing it would probably put more emphasis in the seats in the middle class V6 version which in 2019 was called the LX model and in 2020 the s model. Also make the passenger seat electric as well. But minus the seating concerns overall a very good value for the money. Especially the middle of the road model the LX or s model. Very much are in favor of the V6.


Not As Good As Our Other Kia

This is our second Kia Sorento. The 2017 was quiet and comfortable. This one (2019) is noisy. Lots of both engine noise and road noise.


So far it is a very comfortable ride.

Meets our needs. Good leg and head room. Very comfortable. Has a lot of extras. Has adjustable seats. Dual temp controls . A plus with the back up camera.


Our 5th Sorento

This is our fifth Kia Sorento in the last 20 years. This time we bought the top of the line SX it. Never has our Kia failed to start or left us stranded on the side of the road. This new SX has all the features....panoramic roof, heated seats, heated steering wheel, keep lane assist it goes on and on. THE best value in an SUV of this size!


positive based on new car at year end closeout

Was in the showroom on Dec 31 with aftermarket leather - black good looking rims - priced right the second car bought on that day other was Kia Telluride- like it way better but also 20 K more
