This car is a really nice vehicle, it handles great and we feel extremely safe in it.

The 3.8 Engine runs strong and smooth; it emits a nice, low growl when accelerating. I have not experienced any of the fuel feed problems I've read about but do experience a mild surging while traveling at (approximately) a steady 50 mph.
The transmission shifts very smoothly but I have experienced problems with it failing to up-shift properly when traveling uphill. The sport-shift feature is nice and works flawlessly.
The brakes work well and I have no rotor warping (59,000 miles on vehicle) issue that many others seem to have experienced. The vehicle seems to be built solidly as I have no creaks or rattles whatsoever, even while traveling on poor road surfaces.
The ride is very firm and truck-like but not uncomfortable. I did not buy a car, I bought a utility vehicle.
LOVE MY KIA SORENTO

I recently purchased a 2007 Kia Sorento and absolutely love it. It is comfortable, smooth on the road and is easy to handle on the road. The 'only' negative aspect I have found is that I can hear wind through the windows when I drive on the highway but not so loud that it's a nuisance. My family loves the car so much that my 60 year old mom wants to buy one. Great car for the money.
