I just bought a 2005 Sorento EX and love it. I do have a question about the wood accents on the dash. I thought that the wood accent was also suppose to be on the shifter. I have an automatic. I have surfed the web and the Kia site does not show the wood finish on the shifter but on various Kia accessories sites I see where you can order the wood dash accents that come with the shifter accent.

I obviously do not want to buy the three piece section when my Sorento came with two of them. Does anyone have an EX that came with the wood finish on the shifter?

While this response is years old, some new owner and site browser like myself might benefit.

I happened across a new site www.sorentosite.com (http://www.sorentosite.com/) that sells appearance parts for our rigs. They have just the shift knob wood trim, strangely missing, from the original EX models. Good Luck.

Strangely, the 04'-05' Sorentos with Luxury packages did not come with wood trim on the shifter.

The wood grain shifter can be purchased from various websites, including CustomSorento.com (http://www.customsorento.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=127)

I have a 04 EX with Lux package. Difference is its "Canadian". Apparently ours got the wood grain on the shift handle knob while those imported into USA did not.
