hey have the same problem .i think u might need to get your tire rod check.... possibly its bent. for me its when i leave the light and press the gas it shakes a little and then no problem. a mechanic messed mines up . he replaced a part and it came a part and damaged my rod. i should of made him replaced it. waited to let did not know until later. well any way just get it check to make sure its not that.

On the 2006 kia sorento it has a 2 piece driveshaft ,the center bearing has became weak and its allowing your driveshaft to vibrate when u are pulling off. Replace the center bearing and have the mechanic to check your universal joints also.

I had the same problem with my 2006 Kia Sorento. For me, it was a bad U-joint. You should have your local Kia dealer check 'em out.
