“Have owns several big name 4x4's the Sorento is as...”

Written on: 23/01/2011

Have owns several big name 4x4's the Sorento is as good as any of them,more comfortable and definately more miles per gallon,getting 38.
Taking price into account this has to be of the best buys on the market today.
Travelling through Yorkshire in up to 500mm snow,no problem at all,eats up the miles on the motorway,had a small problem with the cruise control,took it in and they fixed it while I waited,overall I am well impressed and would have another.
Have yet to tow with it,but there is so… Read Full Review

Not very constructive,more like the ramblings of a spoilt kid.....
do try again,yeah I have one 2005, Black and Pewter xs and as a 4x4 it beats
a hell of a lot and it drives great, the point about the air switch, that's probably true
it does turn it self on without being asked, or called for it's all down to the temp.
below 19c its going to keep switching on....but I can live with that.

Written on: 07/08/2010

I got my sorrento xs about 3 months ago and i really love it.It is brilliant for towing with and a very comfortable jeep to drive.It does 34 mpg which im quite happy with as other jeeps only do between 24 and 30. For value for money and comfort i would recommend the sorrento jeep to anyone. I looked at jeeps same age and low miles and they where all 6 to 10 grand more expensive than the sorrento.Also it has heated seats full leather interior and sat nav, and is generally well finished. I hope… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/08/2010

Ive had my Kia Sorento for two months now and to be honest, for value for money you can't beat it. Its a little sluggish but its a big car but thats my only niggle. Otherwise the build quality is amazing for the on-road price. It feels as good as the Aude Q7, you get loads of extras that would cost you a fortune with the other 4X4's. It feels solid when your driving and the interior is a work of art, easy to use the controls that feel very expensive. Its practical as a seven seater and with the… Read Full Review

A great car for every thing from general family use to towing, Pulls a loaded caravan or a large horse trailer plus 2 horses with no problem at all. Only 2 Gripes so far; Watch your dealers when they quote prices for services (I have had a variation of nearly £150 for a 20k service.from Kia main dealers - Why?? ). also am at present having trouble locating M&S tyres at a sensible price for 465/60/18 wheels.They seem to be like the proverbial Rocking Horse Poo… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/02/2010

I collected my new 2010 Kia Sorento (in silver) - top of the range and I love it. What a difference. It is no longer just a 4 X 4 car, but it is sophisticated and good looking! I would say that it is coming into the same league as the Volvo, Audi, etc, but not as expensive. Lots of extras and a joy to drive. The best bits are the keyless entry and drive and the drive itself. The new Sorento actually has some power behind it, even though it is a smaller engine. In the old Sorento, if I… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/02/2010

I have just placed my order for the new Kia Sorento and am due to collect it next Saturday. The car looks completely different to the old model and is now coming into a class of its own. Really elegant looking. Only downside is that there is no option to buy sat nav which is a bit strange and as the facia inside is different to the old one, I am not sure my current one will fit in. It hasn't put me off though. What i find disappointing is that there are more options available if you buy… Read Full Review

“I have just bought a new Kia Sorento XT 2.5 auto. In...”

Written on: 21/11/2009 by alam24 (1 review written)

I have just bought a new Kia Sorento XT 2.5 auto. In the first week I had the back sensors on the back bumper replaced. On the second week I had the back lights replaced due to condensation inside the lens. I have just found out that the front headlights have condensation inside the lens aswell, I am guessing that it is a factory problem because it is on both sides in the exact same place.

If anyone as any advice on this vehicle then my e-mail is below:

Written on: 09/12/2009

I too had the problem with condensation inside the front headlights in the same position on both lights. I removed the rear main beam screw covers on both lights and left them off for 24 hours whilst my car was parked inside my garage. The condensation disappeared, I then put the rear covers back on again and the problem was cured.

Written on: 13/10/2009

I've had my sorento for 3 years and 3 days before the warranty ran out the gearbox went. 2 teeth sheared off. Took it into dealers on the Saturday (warranty ran out on the Monday) showed them the problem and the service guy said to come back next week as the guy I needed wasn't in. Went back on the Tuesday to see the 'right' guy and he said it's too late, the warranty ran out last night. Even though the Saturday man remembered seeing me they refused to acknowledge that I had reported it to them… Read Full Review

I have owned my Kia since new on November 2006. Done 90,000 faultless Kms over all terrain. We do some serious 4WD offroad trips through bad roads, snow, ice and sand. The Kia travels as well as any 4WD I have driven and I am now thinking about replacing it with the new Sorento. Shame the new shape isn't here yat. Value for money nothing tops it… Read Full Review

“I bought a new Kia Sorento in Spain in September 2007....”

Written on: 26/03/2009 by davierj (1 review written)

I bought a new Kia Sorento in Spain in September 2007. So far the car has done 26500kms, including a European tour. It is a comfortable tourer, as well as a competent cross country vehicle, coping with Spanish dirt roads effortlessly.

Apart from some minor complaints with the built in GPS, so far the only problem has been a small oil leak which appeared 2 weeks ago. The car is due for service in April and the leak will be assessed at that time.

I have found the dealership (a small, 2… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/01/2011

I found this review very helpful because...I,too,am buying my first 4x4 after 50 years of car owning! ( I own a classic Mk2 Jaguar + a V8 engined MG Sports so this will complete a good all-round stable!! ) Very impressed with equipment in the vehicle - leather etc. In fact it's as well equipped as a Mercedes, Audi etc - at half the price. Have been influenced by the motoring press comments about the continued reliability of Korean made cars
<br/>and am informed that, if breakdowns do happen, the warranty service is first class; this from a former Mercedes owner, now a Kia owner!!
