2012 Kia Sorento Reviews

The headlights are the only issue, so far. Can't see at all on regular beam. Almost seems like riding around with parking lights. I'm constantly using the brights until I can get this fixed.

I purchased a 2012 Kia Sorento. I do love the car. The exception is the headlights. The dim lights are sooooooo bad!! The high beams should be the low beams. I drive to work at night and have a hard time when other cars are in the opposite lane. I guess I have to pay extra to purchase better lights. I am not happy about this!

Dont buy a KIA Sorento. I have had my car for 3 months and it has been in the shop at least 8 times already. It is a piece of garbage. I hope someone steals it and I never have to see it again.
