"Great Car! I am still in love 14 months later."5.0 starson by latinacsw
Pros: See below- This car was well designed for luxury, comfort and dependability.
Cons: Bluetooth sometimes doesn't function perfectly.
Summary: I purchased a 2011 Kia Sorrento SX in November 2010. This was replacing a 2003 Toyota Corolla S that was totaled in a wreck with a deer. This is my third new car. Prior to purchasing the Sorrento I knew nothing about Kia and was completely partial to Toyota, Lexus, Acura, Honda vehicles. I test drove about 15 SUV's from these brands and Chevrolet, Nissan and Mitsubishi as well. Once I drove the Sorrento I was hooked. This is a luxury vehicle for a great price. It looks great and all of my co-workers were complimenting me on it. It definitely stands out despite being parked in a lot with 75 other cars. I got mine for $27,000 (MSRP- $34,000) after my fiance negotiated very carefully. This car has chrome rims and accents all over, all leather interior, a premium sound system and every bell and whistle available. To top if off the dealership threw in the chrome side rails to help you step into the vehicle and a bug guard for the hood since I was purchasing the showroom model. I love the roomy interior and the 3rd row seat option. I have been able to haul 3 electric fireplaces from Lowes, two bedroom dressers, all with the back seat down. This SUV handled wonderfully during the worst winter Kansas City had seen in 20 years! The ABS system does take over and prevents fishtailing.
I have had no issue with being locked out of the vehicle. In fact I keep the key in my purse on the front seat and I have never had an issue when I stopped to get gas or anything else. I had a Blackberry Tour and I had a small issue pairing it with the Sorrento. I took the phone to Verizon's store and the sales rep sat in my car and paired it within 5 minutes. I now had a Droid and it paired right away. I absolutely love my Sorrento and would buy another one. My fiance is in the market for a new car in the coming months and he will buy one. The dealership we went to is H&H Kia in Omaha, NE. They treated us so well, even waiting there for us until 8pm on a Friday night. My salesman Jon has called me a few times to see how I like the Sorrento. He sent me the instructions to pair the garage door opener in the Sorrento to my garage door. I lost one of the clips to hold a net in the trunk somehow and they are sending me a new one. There was a recall with the starter in this Sorrento last summer. The dealership in Independence, MO changed the starter with no issue. The only problem I have noted is that occasionally the bluetooth in the vehicle will echo or has poor sound quality. However, it usually seems to happen in areas with alot of possible interference or it happens when I am out in the suburbs in Kansas. This is not a big deal. The Droid has a great quality speaker function and I can switch to that when it happens. I have a dog and 3 cats and this vehicle is a dream to transport them to the vet. I get 426 miles for 15 gallons worth of gas. I drive 70 miles a day roundtrip for work and I can make it 5 days before I refuel (I dont drive with it lower then 40 miles remaining). I had no issue with my free 3 month trial of Sirius radio and I have kept it because its a great perk considering how much I drive. The aux and USB ports are excellent. I connect my Ipod and even a tape recorder to it and I can listen to notes from work, music, etc.
