The Sorento comes with impressive warranties, including a five-year/60,000-mile basic warranty. In addition, the Sorento gets a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

"A pace-setting warranty means peace of mind is standard equipment," says the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. While Kia is a relatively new brand in North America, the Sorento's sales and quality ratings have risen steadily over the past several years. The manufacturer's warranty "lasts longer than most marriages," the Atlanta Journal-Constitution quips. According to BusinessWeek, "The company's basic message: We couldn't afford to offer this warranty if we thought this car would break down, but if it does, you're covered."
