I guess there aren't many Sorento owners in So Cal even though the vehicle is awesome. Maybe it's because real estate there is so high that many can't afford a new ride. I'm just now seeing more Sorento's here in Texas although still very few. However you see Hummers out the wazoo. What's up with that? What a truly over-rated vehicle that is. I'll take my Sorento for overall use anyday.

Same here. I see quite a few Sorentos when I am traveling to and from work (60 Miles round trip) but I am the only one on this site from Vermont with a Sorento.

Here in the UK Sorentos are multiplying like rabbits. It seems that Sorento owners are spreading their enthusiasm by word of mouth because Kia hasn't done much of a sales drive for these cars. What is it like in other countries?

In South Africa, specifically Johannesburg where i live, there are many KIA's but not that many Sorento's. I think people here are still a bit dubious of KIA as it is part and parcel of Hyundai and Hyundai is trying to rebuild their image here after a big scandal a few years ago. I'm hoping to buy my Sorento soon. As a matter of interest, a 2.5 CRDi costs the equivalent of US$50000.00 here in SA! Crazy! :(

Congratulations,
I own my first Kia Sorento EX with 2800 KLM, and just love to drive it, and can't wait to take it off road. Will be taking my first long drive this weekend.

Going from Montral to Kincardine Ont. on Lake Huron.

Best of luk and enjoy your Kia.

I can't believe it either Project03 South Cali should is Vehicle central...it's like me I must see five to ten sorie's a day just in the city but most are stock and well to be honest up in age people (No offense to those out there) but here in the Maritimes...the older folks don't dress up there vehicles like that and if they have money the drive the hummer's and BMW SUV's to show off :mellow:, I even try to wave to show them some respect to a fellow sorie owner and it's like their on a different planet. I'm even thinking of putting a badge to this forum on my rear window to get more people involved in my area...probably blind to the internet:D hope you find some to group with and if so take lots of pics..

I am folowing in the footsteps of the great Phoenixrider (I am a fan of what he has done with the Sorie).
I have the Old man emu coils and shocks. I am saving to get 32 inch BF Goodrich Mudterrain's. Should have about 11 inches of ground clearence when I am done. I think the lift works out to almost 2 inches. I guess the ride quality is s'pose to be insanely batter too! :thumbsup:

That was a big part of my following everyone to this forum. His post on the "other" forum describing the work he had done was deleted. :mad2:

Please be patient with me as I save up $$ for my tires, and I promise you guys a major load of pictures during the install, before, after, etc.
