2011 Kia Sorento 4 cylinder from North America
Misrepresented mileage, would not buy another one
I bought the 4 cylinder model because it was supposed to get 30 mpg on the highway. This vehicle has never gotten above 22.5 mpg on the highway. I took it to the dealer; they essentially said to drive slower.
Comfort is OK.
Bluetooth works most of the time, if not, the dealership blames the phone.
Would not buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Consumer reports considers that a midsize SUV, and its tests show it gets about 20mpg overall. And if you are going to trust a government agency to tell you what it's going to get... you are in real trouble. Our government is good at starting wars and getting in debt, but not much else.
The Internet is filled with information on what a car/truck/SUV should get in the real world. Do your homework before you buy your next vehicle.

Kia doesn't set the MPG's printed on the MSRP, just like every other car dealer doesn't... the government does. I own a 2012 Sorento, and I manage 28 MPG in town and 33 on the highway...

You do not get 33 MPG on the highway; it is impossible to get 2 MPG less on the highway than a Toyota Yaris hatchback. A 4 cylinder Sorrento with a manual transmission and 2WD is rated at 27MPG highway; you might get 28 if you're lucky.

You are wrong. 33 MPG should easily be attainable, and possibly even a greater number would be possible with gentle driving. Anyone who gets in the 20s of MPG with this truck has a lead foot.
