Kia Sorento is awesome. Many seats, much room, not a minivan.
I think the Sorrento is a bit out of my price range. I’m trying to stay close to $20K. It’s funny that you’d suggest Kia because drove a Sportage last night! It was nice but it could have used some more pep (I’m spoiled from driving a Turbo).
My experience with the dealer was pretty terrible actually. I’d made an appt to test drive the car but when I got there the guy had gone home! So then, they sent out the “other internet guy” and the dude is like 80 years old. 3 computers later he finally enters my info in the computer and admits to having never heard of this “$9000 off with trade-in” deal I mentioned. They were running the deal last week and I even called before making my appt to double check that it was still running, and the receptionist said yes! Then, the guy made us walk 4 parking lots away to where the Sportages were parked and guess what, no Sportages. They only had THREE on the entire property and 2 of them weren’t even cleared for test drives because they had just arrived and needed to be prepped. It was pretty ridiculous. I won’t rule out a Kia, but I’m pretty sure I won’t be going back there.
