Amazing vehicle for the price
Added: 18th of May 2019
KIA Sorento KX-2. Averaging 28 - 30 mpg in winter 33 - 37mpg in the summer. Replaced many of the light bulbs with LED one's, giving an overall better look to the car. The dreadful budget tyres were replaced with Michelin latitude cross which have transformed the handling and fuel economy, and off road abilities of the car. Overall the Sorento feels very solid at motorway speeds and you have to watch your speed as the car is a very comfortable cruiser. The auto box can be very relaxed and makes driving long distances and coping with hill starts a doddle. I have done some light off-roading with the Sorento, only the tow bar seems to catch the hilly terrain occasionally. Having a family of 5 and a large dog the Sorento is ideal as a family car, and a few times we have used all 7 seats, with adults on board the Kia doesn't struggle with the extra weight . Only problems have been: with a rear door lock which was fixed free of charge by KIA. Both front ball joints have been replaced, but this is down to the age of the vehicle. I would highly recommend this car as an alternative to an MPV, as it can do so much more and is fantastic in the winter with its front heated seats, auto lights, parking sensors and stable road manners.
