BEST BARGIN by happy buyer, stole last of the 2008s on 04/29/2009. Trim: 2008 Kia Sorento LX 4X4, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: omg the price. Best bang for the buck for a 15/20 mpg mid size SUV. Nothing comes close.
Cons: NO 3rd row. Old style looking dash with no big fancy LCD screens or stuff. Kinda looks like my old 1992 ford taurus.
Overall review: 5yr bumper to bumper and 10yr powertrain warranty. Mine was one of last 2008 on lot. Sticker was 25k. I bought it for final selling price of 15k. I added leather seats ($1200) and extra warranty to make it 10yr bumper to bumper ($1000, I plan to keep this car to the end). Total out the door price was $18970. Not bad for a 10yr bumper mid SUV 4x4 with leather! Basically no other car comes with that package. Similiar equipped Hyundai Sante Fe I got priced at 20k out the door (but that has a 3rd row). Anywho, I am at least happy about the price I got this car for. It drives like an SUV, nothing spectacular and nothing bad. All is smooth...so far. But hopefully the warranty is a no hassle deal if it breaks. Note: dealer showed me even with a 15k sale price, KIA still profits 4k from the sale! WOW. Imagine paying sticker for the car...14k profit!

Great Brand by DM of Detroit on 04/02/2009. Trim: 2008 Kia Sorento EX 4X4, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I get more car for my dollar with great performance, the manufacturer really stands behind it and they check that dealers meet high standards. I have purchased 3 new and 1 used Kia and haven't had any issues with any of them. (2003 Sportage, 2004-05 & 09 Sorentos)
Cons: The paint has a tendency to scratch easily but as this is only cosmetic, I just get the vehicle clear-coated at purchese.
Overall review: I like this brand well enough to recommend it to anyone purchasing a car or SUV. I find that they stand up to all conditions well ( I am in Michigan) they are attractive vehicles, good performance, low maintenance, comfortable and value for the price.

Great vaule, great price, greate SUV! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/26/2009. Trim: 2008 Kia Sorento EX 4X2, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I purchased my Sorento 3 weeks ago and absolutely love it. The MSRP for this vehicle was 27k, since it was the last 2008 on the lot (it had 34 miles on it) I was able to purchase it for only 19k. This includes a 100,000 mile warrantee.
Cons: Mileage could be better the 20 gallon tank has only a 400 mile range. My Accord achieves that same range with only 13 gallons. But after all it is a Honda.
Overall review: Great vaule, great price, greate SUV!
