  1. Bull bar?

    2016+ Sorento
    I didn't. I'm waiting until someone confirms a bolt on solution for the 2016-2018 Sorento.. Mainly because it seems I'll have to order it from the US as I'm in Canada, I don't want to go through the process only to find out it doesn't fit. Sent from my SM-N920W8 using Tapatalk
  2. android auto slow?

    2016+ Sorento
    Android auto is fine in my 2018 Sorento. I've used it with my old note 5 and now my s9 plus. Sent from my SM-N920W8 using Tapatalk
  3. 24000Km (15000m) Service - What's really required?

    2016+ Sorento
    Subscribed, I'm at 18k km on my '18, so will be encountering this on my next oil change. Sent from my SM-N920W8 using Tapatalk
  4. Exact fit seat covers for '16+ Sorento??

    2016+ Sorento
    No comment on the seat covers but for the floor mats, check out husky mats as well. I have husky mats for my fronts, weather tech middle, and max liner for the 3rd row, as well as oem Kia weather tech rear cargo mat. All fit well and material feels more or less similar. I ordered them as such...
  5. keyfob issue - little piece keeps sticking out of the key

    2016+ Sorento
    That holds the key to the fob, so don't lose it! Seems like a defect if it keeps sliding out on its own over time. Sent from my SM-N920W8 using Tapatalk
  6. 2016-2018 HID/LED upgrade?

    2016+ Sorento
    You'll need to buy adapter rings. It would be "h7 adapter rings for kia" Sent from my SM-N920W8 using Tapatalk
  7. Remote Start (after the fact)

    2016+ Sorento
    The oem Kia one won't start if the car doors are unlocked. Sent from my SM-N920W8 using Tapatalk
  8. Remote Start (after the fact)

    2016+ Sorento
    I paid msrp for the unit and dealer installed for free with purchase of vehicle. I believe it was like $300 Canadian dollars. Sent from my SM-N920W8 using Tapatalk
  9. Remote Start (after the fact)

    2016+ Sorento
    Ah ok, well regarding the heated steering wheel and front seats, I've never tested it. I asked my wife and she said it stayed on haha As for remote, I purchased the oem unit through the Kia dealer, and it was installed before I took delivery. Sent from my SM-N920W8 using Tapatalk
  10. Remote Start (after the fact)

    2016+ Sorento
    It can use the oem fob. I carry the oem fob only, and my wife carries both oem and 2way starter fob as the 2 way has a further range. Aa for heat/ac, it turns on whatever was on when last shut off. So I leave my climate control to auto, so in my case, when I use remote start, by the time I get...
  11. Remote Start (after the fact)

    2016+ Sorento
    Any dealer can install it, it's pretty much a plug and play system. We got it with our order, it's installed by the dealer, not at factory. Sent from my SM-N920W8 using Tapatalk
  12. 2016-2018 HID/LED upgrade?

    2016+ Sorento
    Hi everyone, I just updated the original post with photos. I'm blown away! Much brighter, cut off is sharper, hot spot is spread out vs halogen bulbs. I took it for a test drive and love it! I'm a headlight projector fan, I've retro fitted/modded several vehicles and bike in the past, so I...
  13. 2016-2018 HID/LED upgrade?

    2016+ Sorento
    I've ordered the LED bulbs i linked in my first post (from Amazon.ca), should arrive tomorrow thanks to Prime. I'll take photos this weekend. I'll likely just install both and then drive out at night and take photos of the projectors against a wall so we can see how they perform. Sent from my...
  14. Initial New Sorento Gas Mileage - AWFUL

    2016+ Sorento
    Well I don't drive it down to the wire, so going by 18.8 gallon tank isn't accurate unless you drive from Full until the car dies (even once the light comes on you still have quite a bit to go). I'm thinking I should get another 50 to 100 km. The main drive is in heavy traffic, so with that...
  15. Initial New Sorento Gas Mileage - AWFUL

    2016+ Sorento
    For my 2018 v6, on a full tank, I'll get about 450km. Most of it is highway driving, but in heavy Toronto 401 traffic both ways. Sent from my SM-N920W8 using Tapatalk
