Dependable and sure footed

Bought our Sorento new in 2003. Long trips, short trips, rain, sun, sleet, and snow our Sorento has taken us there and, just as importantly, has brought us home safely and without any problems along the way. At 87,000 miles we have had to replace the battery and the heater core. Even though I don't believe there was anything wrong with that heater core to this day. It was replaced when I took it in for routine maintenance and, later, the tech say the heater core was bad, leaking and not putting out heat. It was putting out heat just fine when I brought it in. It was cold that morning and I used it the whole time without any indication of a core fault. I think they got me on that one. Timing belt has also been replaced once. Vehicle has been awesome for me in the snow. Never slipped once in 17 years!

2003 KIA Sorento 167,000 miles

I bought this car with 30,000 miles on it and have had it serviced and maintained for 107,000 of those miles by the same auto repair shop, Turner Automotive. I have had the recommended timeling for various services done. Timing belt twice...ready for another. Besides that there has been no serious issues. I just recently bought a KIA Sportage because I felt I didn't need that large of a SUV. My new sportage is an LX and my Sorento is a EX so I miss the bells and whistles of the EX but otherwise, I'm content.

My SORENTO

I purchase my 2003 in 2116. Obviously it was used. I had the utmost confidence in it until it recently died. I don't blame the car, it ran for many, many, many good years. It was roomy, comfortable and loaded with lots of extras. I'll get another if I can!!!!!

2003 KIA Sorento EX 4WD

Been the owner of this car for 16 years. 160,345 miles on it. Besides timing belt being replaced at the manufacturer’s suggested miles(which has been twice), I have the oil changed regularly, minor bulb replacement, brakes, etc. No complaints here.

I Love my Kia Sorento

I love my Kia Sorento from the day I bought it in 2003. Dependable, perfect fit for a 5'10" person, back seats have good leg room and the back has great storage area with a privacy retractable top. I am looking at Kia Sorento for my next SUV.

Owner of a 2003 KIA Sorento

Love my SUV. Only complaint is that every 60,000 miles the timing belt needs replaced. I have 142,000 miles on mine. Runs great and have never had any expense, other then your usual oil change, etc.

My Kia Delivers and Protects

After thirteen years of local driving and long distant trips I feel reassured to continue my adventures with Kia. There was an accident on route 70. Waiting for a light to change, a car smashed into my rearend. My belt grabbed me tightly and the car barely moved, after a car driven at 40 miles per hour struck my bumper and pushed it's front end into the steering wheel I was able to drive my car. I feel my car was a protective tank.
