I need honest post's here. I am finally in the market now for a Sorento. I have looked at a lot of SUV's but never really seen any that caught my eye. Well, the Sorento did. I have dealt with a few dealers lately and haven't come to any deals to get the price right. I have a good friend that has one. It is a 2003 Ex and it's loaded. It has sunroof, power windows, locks, etc. It has the original Kia bug guard on the front, original factory hitch, etc. It only has 18,000 miles and he has kept it in a garage. My wife and myself drove it last Sunday and I honestly can say I have liked every one that I've drove. I looked his over and it hardly even has a hairline scratch anywhere. This seems like a good deal. He want's $17,000. I think the only thing that is shying me away is Kia's name and of course now the gas mileage at $3 a gallon. I need some honest opinions now that will help me to choose. Financialy, I can't hardly afford to make a mistake. I'm 38 and never bought a vehicle that I really wanted. Man, I want this one so bad, but I know it's hard to beat names like Toyota, and Honda as far as reliability. Any help persuading me would be nice but I need honest help.
