2008 Kia SorentoCorkins03 - Riverside, CA07/25/2010
I have never thought about a Kia until I saw mine on the internet. When I test drove it, I knew it was the one for me. I was looking for a medium size SUV but for not an arm and a leg. This is a great value! And the manufacturer warranty...you cannot beat it! I love it! :)
2008 Kia SorentoIowa Dad - Atlantic, IA02/11/2011
We have had this van about two months now. We bought it used with about 34k miles. It is our first van and we are loving the space and higher profile. We have been pleasantly surprised by the power and handling. A couple of small things have given us trouble: a headlight burned out within two weeks of purchase and they are expensive to replace, a push button light cover in the interior broke off with normal use (hoping to replace somehow), one of the rear defrost wires stopped working. But overall we have been very pleased with the value we got for this more-affordable van.
Great value & performance

I have the Kia Sorento 2008 4WD. I've had it three years next month. It's performed well on a long trip and daily driving as well as during severe weather conditions. This is the vehicle we use for most of our daily driving and long weekend trips. I have found the gas mileage to be a tad better than indicated. I tend to get closer to 17 to 19 mpg in town and at least 22-25 on highway trips. We tried several other model SUVs prior to the Kia. The Sorento was the only one where the backseat provided enough head and leg room. There's sufficient storage in the back and the cover is handy when shopping. Overall, we love our Kia and will probably get another when mine gets passed down to my son.
