This is my second Kia Sorrento. The vehicle is a very practical SUV in terms of load capacity and passenger space and comfort. The interior trim and spec are good with leather seats, satnav, reversing camera, heated seats etc. Compared with similar full-size SUVs from other manufacturers such as Toyota, VW, Honda, Jeep, Volvo, the Sorrento is excellent value for money. This and my previous Sorrento reliability has been excellent, with a 7 year warranty back-up just in case.

It drives like a big slug. It has no real throttle response and just kind of wallows when pushed. drivers seat is not very comfortable compared to the many many other vehicles I have driven but this pales in insignificance to the dis-comfort experienced in the passenger seat or any of the rear seats. Yes, there is plenty of room in the rear but it's just horrible to be in there, feeling every tiny twist and bump in the road. We had a hand brake failure after only owning it for a week, Kia (local dealer and National call centre) where absolutely appalling to deal with and claimed that there was no fault. We still have issues with the handbrake to this day and are never confident that it will do its job and we always have to park it in gear for fear of it causing another problem. The electrics seem to have a mind of their own and don't always do what they're supposed to. The Bluetooth feature of the radio is almost useless as it doesn't matter what phone or device you pair with it, it constantly drops the connection with devices. It's fuel consumption is no where near what was suggested for it. In just over 10,000 miles and a year of owning it we have averaged 35 mpg. City driving is more like 20 mpg and motorway driving is around the 45 mpg at most. I get the chance to drive a lot of new vehicles and was persuaded towards this by my partner as she really wanted one. I wasn't sold on it at test drive but again, it was what my partner wanted. After owning it for a year, I can honestly say that this car is the least impressive of any new vehicle I have ever driven. Can't wait for the lease to end if I'm honest. I must add that these comments do not reflect in Nationwide as the service I received from them was excellent.
