  1. I really like that the new 2011 Kia Sorento has a lot of great safety features, like the side curtain airbags in the 1st & 2nd rows. That would make any Mom like me feel safer when driving family around.


  2. Beautiful styling and the best is it has Sirius radio! I can’t live without my Sirius.

  3. I like the interior space and the reinforced body structure. Safety is a big concern after being in an accident this last year. It also looks cool!

  4. I Love the spec on the new Kia! We had an ’08 and are ready to upgrade to the ’11 for the better gas mileage and wonderful power for the not too bulky size!
    And of course, as others have said, being made in America is a wonderful bonus for our economy!

  5. Gosh, our family loves to camp and I ran across this while on twitter. I’m victoria99999 and I Retweeted. 🙂

  6. Safety, Styling and Quality – Simplified.
    The Kia Sorrento – simply the right car at the right time. By Americans, for Americans.

  7. I like the gas mileage, the color choices, and the fact that it is made in America.

    • Right – I’d like to see one, but it looks good. Our kids are going to rebel, one of these days (the 3rd row in our SUV is kids-only!).

  8. Great styling and proud of them for opening plants in the US to help put americans to work.

  9. I love that it comfortably seats 7. Between the 3 growing boys, their friends, the dog & us, we need lots of room!

    • Us too, Lisa – I remember when we were doing dual carseats with our girls. Those things took up so much room!

  10. I like that the backup camera. It’s great for those who have trouble driving and recently backed into the best buy wall at The Cambridgeside Galleria Mall!

    • I’ve used that on my parent’s car, Kimberly, and it’s more convenient and useful than I thought it would be.
