I am extremely happy with my '06 Kia sorento. My previous vehicle was a Jeep Grand Cherokee...or The Money Pit, as I called it. The Sorento has a nice body style, lots of interior storage space, and the price was excellent. My only small gripe is that the engine seems a bit underpowered. It needs a little more pep especially at lower speeds. Overall, I am very satisified with my purchase.
My Sorento EX...

The 2006 Kia Sorento EX is lovely aesthetically on the inside and the outside. I enjoy the roominess, the woodgrain accents, the support rails, the moonroof and the other extras. I have 4 concerns with my purchase.
1. Outside noise is pretty loud from the cabin.
2. Gas mileage is not good.
3. Acceleration is choppy, especially for a V6.
4. There is a knock under the chasis whenever I turn left. I've taken it to the dealer and they determined that it was part of the "normal operation" and there was nothing wrong.
These are all things that I am willing to deal with since I got an excellent price on the vehicle, all operational functions check out and its so pretty.
