I have a late 2010 Sorento Platinum with 20,000km travelled, and I am very pleased with the vehicle overall. My usual city running uses about 10.4L/100km and I did a recent trip to Perisher Valley and achieved 7.1L/100km with 4 adults and luggage on board. As we travelled as quickly as possible I am pleased with that fuel consumption.
However I have one gripe with the vehicle...18" wheels and 60 series Kumho tyres. I don't know whether the rough ride is due to the Kumho tyres or the fact of the low profile, but it is rough..I have tried various tyre pressures but still rough.
I would be interested in hearing other Sorento owners experiences with tyres and ride and if other brands of tyres have improved the ride.

I have since fitted Toyo Versado 65 profile to my Sorento and couldn't be more pleased. The ride is so much better than the Kumho's and I managed to sell them on ebay for $370 which helped with the cost of the Toyos @ $1400 for four.
