Kia Sorento 2016: Transmission downshifting
It wouldn’t hurt to change the fluid, but it’s more likely to be in the valve body.
Best 7-seat SUV to replace Camry?
There's little between the Sorento and Santa Fe, both are very good cars, the CX-9 is also a good choice. I couldn't choose between the Sorento and the Santa Fe, either one would be a good option, but the CX-9 could be the best for your needs as it's a little roomier inside.
Best used 7 seat SUVs under $30k?
Sludge build-up is a turbocharger killer, but sludge won't build up if the car is regularly serviced and the oil is changed so it's always fresh. The problem is usually only with cars that haven't been serviced. Other seven-seaters you could look at are the Kia Sorrento, Hyundai Santa Fe, or Toyota Kluger.
Kia Sorento 2016: Steering pulling to the left
You are not the first to complain about a Kia pulling to the left, including one of my big bosses. I'm told it's important to also check the rear wheel alignment. Kia Australia spokesman Kevin Hepworth says: "There is no identified systemic problem with Sorento steering pulling to the left. If an owner feels their car is not performing to specification they should, in the first instance, take the car to a certified Kia service centre to have the wheel alignment specifications checked. It is important in attempting to adjust the wheel alignment those specifications aren't exceeded."
Kia Sorento 2016: Opinion on it as a package?
The Sorento is a long-term CarsGuide favourite and one of the best things is the basic package is so good you don't have to spend big to get a car that will work well for the long haul. It definitely gets The Tick.
Best options when buying a mid-size SUV?
The Kia Sorento, our Car of the Year in 2015, gets The Tick from me. It has everything you want and need and is a good drive, with a seven-year warranty. If it's out of your price range, go for the smaller Kia Sportage.
Family SUV for small amounts of towing?
Your mechanic is wrong. The new Sorento has been out less than a year, has zero engine troubles and is the one I would pick.
Is the CX-5 the mid-size SUV benchmark?
You've read my mind. After a back-to-back last week with the CX-5 I'm now recommending the Sportage as top in its class. Both get The Tick from me. I think the Sportage is as impressive as the Kia Sorento people-mover that's our reigning Car of the Year.
