Loose door handles

I picked up my car November 2022.
Till recently I couldn’t fault it, apart from some of the overly intrusive safety warnings.However recently all external door handles have become loose. I returned the car to the dealer Port Macquarie Kia who told me all Kia & Hyundai vehicles are the same and this is normal. I regard this answer as ridiculous and if this is the case there should be a recall. Has anyone else experienced this absurd situation? This is my daily driver and in all other respects is great. Show details

Extremely bad after care service

I’m enjoying my Sorrento it’s the after care service that’s appalling. I was sent a letter today after a warning light came on my dashboard a week ago. It was a recall notice that was to replace a low pressure fuel hose clamp which as the letter states may result in engine fire, risk of accident, injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.I got a rude man Nick in service who said it’s not really a matter of urgency. Will do it next week. I rang another Kia dealership who said they can do it in a month. No apologies I just hope my family is safe in this car until they find a repair time!! Show details

Worth the Expense

As I travel in excess of 40th per year looked for a vehicle that was safe and comfortable.
Kia fitted the criteria that I wanted with more. Safety is covered comprehensively
Driver Assistance very comprehensive , Lacking Auto wipers
2000kg towing cap a bit low,
Fuel economy very good ( Mostly freeway driving )
Extra rear sets great for grandchildren a bit tight for adults. Show details

Safest vehicle I have ever driven

Long trips talking my grandchildren to sporting events often 400k round trip weekly
Short trips shopping 3 times per week….
Serviced as per manufactures recommendations + intermediate services if travelled on flooded or excessive dusty roads Show details

All the bells and whistles and such a delight to drive

We have the top of the line GT Line so you would expect everything in it but even the base model comes packed with features. Great to drive and even though it’s diesel you can hardly hear it or notice it. If on really coarse bitumen there can be quite a bit of tyre noise at times and if you want to tow with it I’d do my sums first ( mainly due to the tow ball weight) but they would be the only negatives I can think of. Everything else is brilliant and far outweigh these 2 things that aren’t really an issue. I’d happily buy another one Show details

Amazing car! Best automobile decision

Great performer on road, Highway drive provides me a great fuel economy too.

Apple play not available even in the top most model (GT version), Only disappointment I have!

Never an issue and the 7-year warranty is the best in market anyway. Interiors dual tone could be extended into other colours to attract more attention.

When driving and just feathering the throttle the engine seems like it’s fuel starved for split second but if you gun it it’s perfectly fine! Mentioned it to Kia when it went in for service but they obviously said they couldn’t find anything wrong!! Any suggestions would be great thanks!

Haven’t experienced this problem.

at a guess i would say this is turbo lag. it usually happens with turbo diesels as the turbo spools up.

Can you have the sunroof removed from the kia sorento gt-line? If buying brand new?. I was able to when buying my Nissan navara in 2018..
