My '04 Sorento LX has had half of it's 7800km on the back roads. No major 4 wheeling by any means but I tug a fully loaded Quad trailer with camping gear. Happy with the power and reliability so far....knockin on wood Very interested in allot of the posted concerns and I'll do my best to help out with questions/issues. History - I've stepped up from my '01 Sportage due to the lack of towing power. Other then that I've been quite happy with Kia and the customer service provided.
