don't have lot of trust on 8 speed transmission.
Honda/Acura screwed up big time when they moved from 6 to 8 speed...

They (KIA) said itís the same one as in Cadenza with V6. So hopefully it will bring some positives. But will see.

They screwed up because they went to another company to provide the transmission. The programming is never going to match right the first time. Thatís why Kia and Toyota decided to go in house. And now Honda is following too with their 10 speed.

I was in same boat. Almost bought an MDX until I discovered the Sorento and so many things I would have missed in the MDX. XC90 was my first choice but Sorento provided much better value for similar features and it was quieter than XC90.

Volvo XC90 I almost bought but Sorento is way better in features per dollar value.

After everything (taxes, destination, dealer-add-ons), what was the out-the-door price? I am going to guess

CANADIAN: 57,000
USA: 44654.41
