The Kia, One Month Later

I have had the 2015 Sorento for one month now. I have not gone far with it other than driving it home from Victoria where I bought it and one trip to Brooks' in Shawnigan lake. It is running perfectly and behaves like a new car. It is getting 8.8 Litres per 100 Kilometers which is 32 miles per Imperial gallon or 24 1/2 miles per American gallon. Everything about the car is great, it is comfortable, easy to get in and out of and drives well. The electric steering takes a bit to get used to and I wish I had a backup camera as the view to the rear is a little lacking so I might add one if I can decide where to mount the screen.

It came with a full tank and I have added one full tank. I have tested it on gravel with a short trip to Brown's Bay and (not that I needed the AWD) I tested it. I have driven hundreds of thousands of kilometres in company 4 wheel drives and the AWD and it's Traction Control is a little different but I will get used to it when we have a little snow.

But so far, so good. No complaints and it is so much easier on the back than the old Mazda!


  1. The older we get the more comfort matters in a car. Nice to hear it is working out for you.

  2. The same thing is happening to me Bill. I have to sign into Blogger at least twice and sometimes several times before it "takes". I'm glad I'm not the only one!
