Great car apart from the electrics.
Purchased a demo MY17 Sorento GT Line with 1000km on the clock. Car was brilliant.... the best I had ever owned... until 12 months ago. Then all sorts of weird electrical things started going wrong with it. Too many issues to list but the critical one is that the car would turn itself on.... yes I kid you not.... by itself in the middle of the night. Not the engine but it would power up all of the electrics and blaze away with the headlights. The neighbours got used to this and would let me know when they saw it.... but in the past year it left...me stranded 4 times when no one caught it and I came out in the morning to start the car but the battery was completely flat. Went to multiple Kia dealers about this... most thought I was mad and couldn't see anything wrong with the car. Made a faraday cage for the keys in case they were going screwy... this did nothing. The roadside assist guys that came out whenever my battery was flat had never heard of anything like this in their careers. Auto electrician could find nothing wrong either. There were multiple other weird electric things happening intermittently on seemingly unrelated systems.... but the killer was the car leaving me stranded multiple times. I need reliability. Cut my losses..... sold it and bought a Mitsubishi Paid to Sport. This will be my fifth Mitsubishi and they have always been bulletproof for me.
Purchased in May 2017.
