Poor choice... by jeff5267 on 02/08/2011. Trim: 2004 Kia Sorento LX 2WD, Owned 7 years.

Pros: I would not recommend this year Sorento to anyone... After a little over 55,000 miles the crankshaft pulley bolt sheared off... Costing over 7,000 dollars to repair... Kia would " NOT " cover this under their so called 10 year 100,000 mile warranty... Kia know this is a problem they even have a replacement bolt to fix the problem... Kia is right on par with Toyota as being an irresponsible and greedy corporation...
Cons: I would not recommend this year Sorento to anyone... After a little over 55,000 miles the crankshaft pulley bolt sheared off... Costing over 7,000 dollars to repair...

Pros: this car is great. i did not think i would like it when i bought it for my wife but after we decided to take it on a trip from okc to chicago and back with 123000 miles on it and had no problomes with it what so ever it changed my mind best car i have ever owned now it has 169000 miles on it and it still is going.
Cons: well it does have it<s problomes i am sor of a geer head getting parts for it is dificult you can only get them from the dealer and they are pricey the parts are very dificult to change without a machine shop> but overall fun to work on.
Overall review: i would recommend this car to any one who likes challenges. these cars have minds of thier own and should be treated as such if you treat them like a piece of machienery they will work like that and break down, if you treat them like they are part of the family they will take real good care of you.

Without Luxury Options it's a Really Dependable Truck by Long Island Expressway (HOV) on 08/16/2009. Trim: 2004 Kia Sorento EX 4WD, Owned 5 years.

Pros: I bought the car new in 2004 for $17,500. When I first saw it on the road, I thought it was a Lexus SUV. It is handsome. I bought the car stripped, no options, 5-speed manual transmission. It was fun to drive. After 98,000 miles, all I did was change the oil and perform very minor routine maintenance. The car will eventually be crushed as I used it for the Cash for Clunker program ($4500) and got a Prius III.
Cons: Not much. The water pump went on me after 90,000 miles. It was covered under warranty. My girlfriend spent 2x the $$ on the same car, only she got leather, upgraded stereo, heated seats, power windows. She had the same problem with the water pump. She's had problems with every option on her car.
Overall review: Buy it stripped. My girlfriend had lots of problems with sunroof, heated seats, stereo, etc., etc. It was a good truck and I don't take good care of my cars. She got regular oil changes. I put over 90,000 miles in under 5-years.
