Thank you. I have always felt that respectful disagreement is an integral part of online forums. A lively debate makes things so much more interesting.

The jury is still out on gas mileage but it's getting better as it breaks in... got just under 25 mpg on the last tank of mostly highway with some city mixed in. I doubt we'll reach the near 30 mpg we could get sometimes in the Kia but at least it won't be a gas pig and with the 24 gallon tank it can go a long way between fill-ups. The ride is not as stiff and truck-like as I had anticipated - more like the firm ride of a sporty sedan and not uncomfortable.

All the best to you.

I ordered a EX V6 without the 3rd row seats so in that respect have a lot of rear storage area. I am liking the new Jeep Truck but I know it is going to be a bit much$$. My 2007 GMC Sierra has several "features" that I miss on my 2013 Kia, unknown what the options are now.

The Sorento was a decent people hauler which got better than expected mileage and cost less than most comparably equipped similar vehicles. However, I found as time went on that the pricing indicated that the materials were maybe not up to the standards of other makes. Our two local dealers are complete morons so the benefit of a long warranty was compromised by the only places to get service. And the electronics capabilities are quite behind the market. For example, why can't it set the seat and mirror positions based on the key fob that unlocks the door? The Kia salesman had never heard of such a feature even though I had it in a Ford product five years before I bought the Sorento. And why can't the power mirrors fold out automatically when you put the car in gear? Or why can't I fold the second row seats from the cargo area (2-row EX)? There are plenty of similar questions which don't really need to be asked here.

I am already enjoying the solid truck feel and rear wheel drive of the Jeep as opposed to the more car-like feel of the Kia. That's just me - I prefer a real SUV over a CUV. I may miss the one or two miles per gallon I'm giving up but overall this was a better choice for me.

Anyway, thanks to all on here who have helped and who have put up with me over the past few years. I wish you all well.

I too would like to thank all the members of this forum who has helped with tips over the last few years. But I'm also moving on from my Sorento which I absolutely loved, only had 91K and was still in perfect condition but I wanted an upgrade and decided to go with an 2019 Audi Q5.
