2004 Kia Sorento LX V6 from North America
Drive shaft has been replaced 2 times, and I still have the vibration in the front end.
Transfer box replaced, as the dealer thought the vibration was from that. Fuse box replaced.
EATS headlights and tail lights, and they burn out in groups; could be dangerous as you may end up with no brake lights without realizing it. I have (as of today) replaced the headlights 5 times... I've NEVER replaced lights in ANY car that often, and we've had Honda's and Acura's for more than 10 years.
It'll be paid off in February... I'm going to keep it until it falls apart in the driveway, as I have a short commute to work. I've taken the best care of this vehicle because I don't trust it, to no avail.
LOVE the turning radius... perfect!!!
I like the light steering too.
Seats are a little hard, but OK.
I'm used to it now after 6 years; she has her bumps and bruises, well worn.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have a KIA Sorento also. Bought it in 2007 used, however I've also changed the bulbs in this vehicle more than I have in any other one I've owned. My headlights seem to go out every two months, one at a time. My tail lights not so often. I too will not purchase another KIA Sorento.
