A very solid and performing 4x4 SUV


The only problem I have with the Sorento are the head lights. The original ones lasted almost a year and a half, but the repair parts need to be changed every six months.

The other thing to mention is the suspension is a bit bumpy.

General Comments:

My general comments about the car are in summary very good. When I changed my CRV, I had several doubts about KIA Sorento performing as the CRV did in quality and comfort, but I have to say that the car surprised me, and I'll purchase another Sorento next year.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
