Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"Just nice to drive. Love the safety features like back up camera and blind spot warning lights."

ROB P., UT (2015 Kia Sorento)

"Excellent handling, good gas mpg"

Anonymous, TX (2015 Kia Sorento)

"The 4 cylinder engine performs well, maybe a little under powered for a SUV. Steering is excellent, responsive and turning radius is remarkable."

LAWRENCE T., TX (2015 Kia Sorento)

"The six speed transmission does not shift as smooth as I think it should. Dealer says that it is fine, It has to learn my driving. Well, it's been watching me for 10,000 miles, and it has not learned anything yet."

DAVID L., WI (2015 Kia Sorento)

"acceleration is great"

Anonymous, AZ (2015 Kia Sorento)

"The acceleration is outstanding, no hesitation, it flies! The turning radius is the best I have ever experienced in a vehicle."

LINDA M., NY (2015 Kia Sorento)


DANNY H., VA (2015 Kia Sorento)

"Our impression of the acceleration for the 4 cylinder Kia is colored by the fact that we have a 6 cylinder Kia Sorento and previously had a 6 cylinder Toyota RAV4, both of which are very powerful, with the rav4 perhaps over powered to the point of being snappy and discontinued (note: we decided NOT to buy smother RAV4 when toyota stopped offering the V6). So to us the 4 cylinder shifts dramatically to provide its reasonable acceleration and is a little noizy however the resulting acceleration is"

JOHNSON F., OH (2015 Kia Sorento)

"I was turning left at a stoplight with the green arrow when a lady ran the light. My Kia had enough power for me to gas it and get out of her way."

BEVERLY S., OK (2015 Kia Sorento)

"This car has exception acceleration and handling."

Anonymous, ON (2015 Kia Sorento)

"As acceleration goes it is very responsive for a 6cyl and handling is good with 3 driving moods"

Anonymous, KS (2015 Kia Sorento)

"It is very comfortable and responsive. The road noise is minimal and the smoothness of the ride is great. It accelerates very quickly when needed and it's handling is the best I have experienced for an SUV or any vehicle this size."

MIKE W., WA (2015 Kia Sorento)

"there is no acceleration, it's horrible getting onto the interstate. And with the optional towing package if you are even towing an empty trailer at 500lbs its horrid!"

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Over all very comfortable. Dash air vents can not be directed at driver or passenger."

MITCHELL B., OH (2015 Kia Sorento)

"The drivers seat requires a cushion for my bottom to be comfortable. After a few months the front seat settled down to feel like you are sitting in a hole. Other drivers on forums report the same experience. I am considering taking the car to a custom upholstery shop to have the problem corrected."

Anonymous, MD (2015 Kia Sorento)

"Seats are very comfortable for someone with back problems and has ride is good."

DAVID R., WI (2015 Kia Sorento)

"seats are too large for me and I need runners to get in and out of the car comfortably"

Anonymous, AZ (2015 Kia Sorento)

"The rear seats have very little leg room. Front seats are fine."

NOEL D., IL (2015 Kia Sorento)

"My leather seats are very uncomfortable. They are hard, so I sit on them, not in them. They are shaped wrong so they neither fit the curve of my back or my rump."

DAVID L., WI (2015 Kia Sorento)


JAMES B., VT (2015 Kia Sorento)

"Seats are extremely comfortable"

Anonymous, FL (2015 Kia Sorento)

"Road noise is a little high but it's to be expected - it's a 4-wheel drive SUV designed for off-road use."

ANGUS M., KY (2015 Kia Sorento)

"seats not as comfortable as I would prefer. head height entering and leaving vehicle seems low"

Anonymous, MO (2015 Kia Sorento)

"One of the best seat comforts in a suv both in seat comfort and very good climate control system."

"Ride is very firm"

DAVID R., WI (2015 Kia Sorento)

"I looked at every model that was the size and had the options I wanted and the Kia by far had the best warranty and price of all of them."

ANTHONY R., NY (2015 Kia Sorento)
