Free step-by-step video tutorials for your Kia Sorento

Do you own a Kia Sorento from 2003 thru 2013? Maybe you're thinking about buying one of these SUVs?

You can save yourself lots of money by carrying out maintenance and repairs on your own car, and Haynes' Owners Workshop Manual for the Mk1 and Mk2 Sorento (2003 - 2013) shows you how to perform basic jobs such as checking the tire pressures, fluid levels and changing the wiper blades as well as more advanced procedures such as replacing the fuel pump and renewing the drive axle.
