I totally agree. The gearing of the trans and the power of the Ecotec is WAY more than most people think it will be. The A6 really does help with it.NoobNox said:I've never done a 0-60 test on my Nox (and don't feel the need) but the 8.7 second 0-60 time that the 4cyl Nox is capable of would have been a good time for a car with a V6 or even V8 not that many years back. Heck it's still a respectable acceleration time no matter how you look at it...and it doesn't come at the expense of fuel economy.
Having several friends who have purchased Hyundai and Kia SUV's I have noticed a trend. They all have dumped them when things started to need fixed and went to GM and Ford products with no complaints. They all felt they saved money and got a great deal with them at the purchase time but found from 60,000 miles that things needed fixed that were not warranty items.teetertotter said:We are down in GA visiting my sister and husband for a couple days. They have a lease agreement on a 2012 Sorento, FWD, from June of last year. He has the I4 and said he gets 22 mpg hwy and 18 city, isn't that terrific? I said we avg about the same with our 12', V6, AWD, Terrain with AC on. We rode in his Sorento yesterday and today and the ride was comfortable in the back seat. It has nice air vents in the rear seating area, which were adjustable.
I just thought I would say something as Kia is just ordinary. IMO
