Traded it in on a 2011 Forte. My son gave me his 97 Grand Cherokee so I didn't need another 4x4, and since the Sorento was my daily driver I decided to do my pocketbook a favor and buy something that gets good gas mileage. I was going through about $100 a week in gas at $4/gallon with the Sorento. The Forte is averaging around 33 mpg or about double what the Sorento was getting. I figured instead of paying the oil companies I can pay the bank instead, at least I'll have something to show for my hard earned money down the road.
Now that the weather is finally warming up I can also start putting the Sporty back together. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Body Damage is Cool
Sorry to hear that the Sorento is gone. However, since you still have the Sportage you are still welcome to stay on the board. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/butwiggle.gif" alt="" /> Just kidding.

How did you like the Sorento vs. the Sportage. I had one as a rental once, and it did OK. It wasn't a Durango or a Grand, but it did OK.

It was okay, I had highway tires on it ao it wasn't really an offroader. I did manage to get it stuck in a ditch this winter after a snowstorm and had to shovel it out. I figured the Sportage would have easily made it's way out by itself.
