The Kia Sorento | Family Dream Car #DriveKia

Kia Sorento Family Car

Dear Hubs,
You may remember, just recently, when we had the good fortune to test drive the Kia Sorento and it not only met our rapidly growing expectations for all things Kia, it exceeded them.  Well let me make myself abundantly clear if I hadn’t done so before.  This car embodies everything we are looking for in a vehicle at this stage in our life.

You’ve driven your pick up for the last ten years.  I know you’re very attached to it despite the difficulties it presents when carting Baybah from place to place, but the Kia Sorento offers the perfect solution.  It has all the carrying capacity of the truck with the back seat and optional third row that we so desperately need.  When our parents come to visit us this summer you know we will need that extra room inside the vehicle.  On top of all that it gets great gas mileage, 32 miles per gallon on the highway and 24 miles per gallon in the city.  That could save you a little dinaro on the way to and from work.

Don’t even get me started on the Kia Sorento’s infotainment system it is like having a PC in your center console.  Everything imaginable is in there.  Hands free access to your cell phone, SiriusXM radio, plus the on board computer is monitoring every aspect of the cars performance and functionality.  Never again will we have to wonder whether the tires are low.  Remember when we would go on family trips and you would make meticulous calculations on how far we went and how much gas we would use?  This car will do that for you at the touch of a button.  But the feature that is most important is the back up warning system.  Never again will we need to be concerned with not seeing what is directly behind us when backing up because the camera is mounted right in the blind spot.  The entire image shows up crystal clear on your center consol.  There are even those handy calibrating lines that help you determine where your bumper is.  This would be very handy for me when I am trying to squeeze into one of those tight spots in the city.  This could also save you some of the embarrassment associated with having to get out of the passenger seat and parallel parking the car for your wife in the city.  You can literally control your entire life from here, or more like, I can.  MOOHOOOhahahaha.   Sorry for the evil laughter I lost myself for a second.  Back to the topic at hand, buy me, I mean us the Kia Sorento!!

Love, Your Loving Wife Lolo
