Good Car

This is a good Car, dependable, a quiet running well handling car. The front seats have a lot of room, I have had a 6 foot 6 -inch 300 pound man in front with not much complaint about space. Back seats fold down and create good cargo space. The four cylinder has no problem getting out in front of traffic and has a punch when you pass at 70. Only issue I have had with the car is transmission shifter locks up and will not go into park, this is an adjustment issue that affects the down hill assist and antilock breaking at the same time. Still a good car. Scale of 1 - 10 I would give it an 8.

I Like the room, the handling and all around conveniences. I do not really dislike anything.

I LOVE IT...I JUST WISH IT WOULDN'T SKIP

I REALLY LIKE MY KIA SORENTO, I JUST WISH THE MECHANICS AT THE DEALERSHIP COULD FIGURE OUT WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT BEFORE I GET TO 100,000 MILES AND THE WARRANTY RUNS OUT.
