Kia Sorento Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I, too, am interested in the 2011. I received an email with a link to print a certificate for $1,000 off if I purchase a 2011 Sorento from dealer stock between January 4 and February 1. I think I got it because I signed up for Sorento updates a month or so ago on the Kia website. The certificate, when printed, has my name on it and is tied to a specific certificate number.

    I'm planning on waiting another week before going to online seller websites to get prices for comparison. As far as inventory, my local dealer (in northeast Texas), a relatively small dealer, got one truck load in last Saturday and just got another in today. None of the larger dealership websites for Dallas dealerships have any 2011s listed in their new car inventory yet on their websites.

    I'm curious as to how dealers will deal on these, what with Kia giving rebates on brand new model (which dealer I purchase through will not know about until price is reached). That is, is Kia pushing dealers to sell to get car on the road to be seen by also offering dealer rebates or better selection on future inventory--incentives we will not know about? Wish I knew answer to that one.
  • I live in PA and I have received a quote for a 36 month lease on a AWD LX with 522 down the payment is 312 a month and with no money down the payment is 327. I am sorry, but I don't have any of the fine details to the lease, but I hope this helps.
  • I live in Ohio and bought a new 2011 last weekend. I ended up buying the LX model with convenience package, floor mats and cargo cover. MSRP came to 26,130 if I remember correctly. There was a $1,000.00 rebate and another $1,000.00 in customer loyalty because I already owned a 2004 Sorento. So that was $2,000.00 off the MSRP. They came off the sticker about another $1,000.00 so the total was $3,000 off MSRP. I don't consider that a blockbuster deal but I was OK with it. You cannot get the $1,000.00 rebate AND the special interest rate. But you can get the loyalty cash along with the interest rate. In lieu of $1,000 rebate, they are offering 0% up to 36 months, 2.9 for 48 months or 3.9 for 72 months.
  • I am interested in leasing a 2011 Sorento 4cyl, AWD EX model for 36 months with 12,000 miles per year, the best deal I have found was $349 down and $349 a month and I believe this is with $1,000 competitor rebate, can anyone tell me if this is a good deal or are there better out there.
  • They are definitely dealing, even though this is a new car. Before incentives, I bought an '11 EX 4-cyl with premium and 3rd row for $700 below invoice. Final price was $24300 after $1000 competitor rebate and 0% for 48 mo. We have been extremely happy with the car over the last week. It is not a luxury vehicle, but the ride, handling, noise levels, and refinement are head of the group. The 4-cyl is made OK, with 0-60 under 10 sec and relative quiet operation. For the 1st 300 miles on a new engine and mixed hwy/city driving we are averaging 22 mpg - good IMO. A new 200 hp theta engine comes out later this year with direct injection and better fuel economy. It would be good if it made it to the Sorento. The base stereo, on the other hand, sounds average at best, and I am no audiophile. The next package with audio and nav was only $2k more but we didn't need it.
  • What was your final MSRP? Thanks for the information it was very helpful.

    There must be some Marketing "back end" money for January in addtion to the published $1K cash plus the add'l $1K conquest cash. This week, was offered a deal for a V6 for "a few hundred under invoice and the $2K total incentives" today without any trade-in and without really pressing too hard. This is in the northern Atlanta area...

    On the lot this week, they had more of the EX, 2WD, 6cyl vehicles than the 4cylinders for what it's worth. With a new model, they bought a lot of 4cyls in the first "allotment", but apparently the 6 cylinders sold faster. Cherry red and the tan colors seem to be selling fastest.

    Drove both the 4cyl and the 6cyl. The 4 is just fine for around town, but the 6cyl is "buttery" smooth and just plain fast.
  • That sounds just about right, but I wonder if theres any good lease programs right now for the Sorento?

    Im looking for a 10k / 36 mth, 0 down for a I4 Ex or V6 Ex, interested to see if anyone else got a good deal?
  • The best I have been able to conjure up has been on an 4x4 EX, 12,/36mos
    First down $350 a month the average seems to be in the $360 neighborhood
  • Just signed a deal on a 2011 Sorento EX 2wd 4cyl with premium pkg 1 and third row. Bright Silver with black leather. Very sharp. $852 down, $334/mo w/tax, 15k miles/yr. (Mentor Kia, Ohio) Love the tight ride, bluetooth, gas mpg, smooth shifting and quiet engine. Did a lot of test drives in various competitors (CR-V, Edge, Mariner) Best value by far.
    Watch out for the lease turn in charge ($400)on the paper work. Had the dealer write me a reimbursement voucher for that one. Been leasing cars for awhile and never had to pay to return- does not seem right. :)

    It's been awfully quiet here lately... Just curious how folks have been doing lately as we look at end of the month as a possible good time to shop for an EX V-6 2WD... Thanks!

    Been shopping for a 2011 Sorento. Priced a EX ..FWD Automatic..4 cylinder. Got these numbers from the dealer after a test drive
    MSRP $29795
    $399.....Administration charge
    $299.... etching, you know what they can do with that
    $100.... Air tax
    $000 ....Gas tax
    $100.....Full tank of gas and license
    Total ...$32,742
    Plus taxes of 13% for a grand total of
    No incentives, cash back etc., financing 3.9% for 60 months, or 4.9% for 72 months
    This is all before haggling
    Looks like Kia and the dealer don't want to sell these cars. $37,000 for a Kia that has questionable reliability :lemon: and low resale value, Can't look to see how much a AWD V6 would be. ...Welcome to Canada... :surprise:

    Kia dealers are awful here in the states as well. I suggest finding dealers near you who deal fairly and shop them irrespective of the brand. No matter the brand, it's still 4 wheels and an engine.
  • I too am in the ATL area and was interested to know where you went in north ATL in your previous post? We are in Conyers and trying to find the best deal on a new Sorento
  • I just picked up my 2011 Sorento EX V6 with premium package audio and nav out the door $17,135 at the local Kia dealer.Deal seemed ok. Brand new but it has some rattles in the dash. Anyone else having that problem, I only have 146 miles now on it.
  • Also located in NW ATL and would appreciate suggestions on dealerships that are most flexible to deal on V6 EX 4X2 w/ premium package2?

    ? You got a Sorento that stickers at $33 (2wd) or $34,500 (4wd) for $17135 out the door?

    was there a trade-in involved?
  • jayriderjayrider Posts: 3,250
    I'm sure that was a mistake even 27135 out the door seems a stretch.
