KIA SORENTO 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 18, 2004.KIA SORENTO 2004, manufactured by HYUNDAI MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . since buying my sorento in february 2004, i have noticed that the car sometimes has to "think" before going into gear and there is no predictability as to when this will happen. in example i was in the center lane merging into traffic when the car just would not get going it hesitates and then drops into gear. i have taken the car in and the service manager said that he has had several complaints like mine but there is nothing he could do to help. he said that it seems to be the combination of the engine and transmission and that since it seems to be just a characteristic of the car, there would be nothing that kia would do. i am concerned that this vehicle can cause an accident under normal driving conditions. since it is a 6 cylinder, i would believe that it should get up and go when you need it. i always need to be aware that i cannot rely on the car to get in gear quickly. this is unsatisfactory, and i have never had a vehicle react in such a way.*ak.Mileage was 5000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 21, 2007.KIA SORENTO 2004, manufactured by KIA MOTORS AMERICA, INC. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:COOLING SYSTEM . i was told by the florida state attorney general's office this is the site to enter information for a possible product recall. this is not a safety issue. the radiator reservoir on kia sorrento's start leaking for no apparent reason. if the consumer does not notice it then the engine will overheat and stop working. although the engines are warranted for 10 yrs or 100,000 miles i see potential for many consumers losing their engines and the response from kia be that the customer let the engine overheat. it is not easy to realize that the car is overheating. rather than a flashing light the temperature indicator is a gauge. you have to actually notice that the needle has moved. it seems a shame that so many people may lose their engines because of what amount to a plastic part that just starts leaking. i believe the replacement radiator reservoir is a redesigned part and i strongly believe that the original part is defective should be recalled. i own a kia, this did not happen to me. i was luck enough to notice that the radiator reservoir was leaking. my sorrento is a 2004 but i believe other sorrentos around that year use the same defective part. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 64000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 13, 2008.KIA SORENTO 2004, manufactured by HYUNDAI-KIA AMERICA TECHNICAL CENTER INC had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . i purchased a 2004 kia sorento in july 2004, had a few problems such as brakes wearing out too soon and things like that but the dealership was great to make the repairs at no cost. on may 13, 2008 while sitting out a stop sign in my neighborhood the engine began making a very loud banging noise and then stalled. the check engine light came on and my immediate fear was the engine had blown. i knew the oil and preventive maintenance service work had just performed and now the serento had 61k miles on it. i had a wrecker truck tow the serento to the bayway kia dealership (houston) which is where i had service work done before. the nice service manager named "joe' had the engine inspected and found the engine failed because of a item falling off the fuel injector into a cylinder, thus blowing the engine. "joe" advised the engine repair (replacement) would be covered under warranty because of a known defect. now it has been 3 months, still no repair, bayway kia is now owned by a different company, thus "joe" is no longer there, and the kia dealership keep stalling on the repair. they only have one certified mechanic who has been snowed under with work. this entire week the certified mechanic is on vacation and twenty-five (25) cars in the repair shop waiting on him... hummm.... they basically refused to allow me taking it to another dealership because they have the engine taken apart and ordered the replacement parts. what good is a 100k warranty if they keep the vehicle for months and months, while i still pay the finance company? *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 61000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 10, 2008.KIA SORENTO 2004, manufactured by HYUNDAI-KIA AMERICA TECHNICAL CENTER INC had a problem with SUSPENSION . recent (6 mo. ago) purchase of a 2004 kia sorrento. at time of purchase approx. 75,000 mi. logged. tires appear to be in very good.condition. within a month or two of purchase, it became obvious that there was a traction problem on wet or even slightly wet roads. as of today, dec. 10, 2008, i have skidded twice and "fishtailed" once, going very slowly (20 mph or less) today it was barely sprinkling and as i literally crept around a corner, the car unexpectedly began to swerve and fishtail. it was a little scary and i'm sure the people behind me freaked me out... despite my surprise, i tried not to jerk the wheel . the car straightened up after a few tail end swishes back and forth. i have searched the internet recently and have seen consumer reference to "poor traction on wet surfaces" (understatement). i have mentioned it to a kia repair shop, but was told to make an appointment and bring it in. since i do not have thousands for a major suspension (or ?) repair, i have been praying for dry weather. i have also heard and felt strange noises when the vehicle was accidentally switched to 4 wheel drive, but it is not apparent when in 2 wheel drive. and, the transition from one gear to another is not sooth and is a little slow. anyway, the main issue is skidding on wet roads. i am very surprised there has not been some kind of safety alert or recall. thanks for listening. theresa arney *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 85500 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 15, 2010.KIA SORENTO 2004, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:EXHAUST SYSTEM . i was driving along the interstate at aprox. 70 mph. i heard a ticking noise and looked at the dash. no warning lights. i rolled the window up, could not hear the noise any longer and continued down the road. i rolled the window back down, the ticking got louder, all lights on the dash light up, engine stalls, and as i'm moving to the emergency lane, the temp. gauge moves to the red. the vehicle has 155,000 miles on it so the warranty is up. however, this problem occurred because of the fluid leaking out of the water reservoir. if kia was aware of this problem and did not issue a recall, knowing that this could cause serious engine problems, why are they not responsible for this motor? the repairs are going to cost more than 5000 dollars and that is if i can find a replacement motor from a secondary dealer. i have considered trying to find a used motor but i am now hearing that this particular motor has had a problem with the #6 cylinder wall failing, and i do not want to sink that kind of money into this vehicle without the assurance that i will not have to go through this again in 6 months. has anyone else heard of this? are there any class action suits against kia? this should not be tolerated. if you spend 28,000 dollars on a vehicle, change the oil every 3 to 5 thousand miles, you should expect more than 155,000 miles out of it. kia should be held accountable! *tr.Mileage was 155000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2004 car safety problem was reported on Mar 30, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2004, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . i am writing this complaint against kia motors who willingly knows of issues with its fuel systems in all 2004 kia sorentos. even looking online you see thousands of kia owners who have had the sensor go out on this model car after the cars 100000 warranty, and then kia claims it is past the warranty they have and there is nothing they can do. this causes the gas to always read incorrectly even with a full tank the car reads "e" and continuously every day have to place more gas in car for fear that the "e" may come on and like several days ago i was left on the side of the road from this. when you reach out to kia they offer no help stating there are no documented cases and when you tell them to look online, they claim those could just be angry customers placing false information. then they want to hang behind the "as is" clause stating that i should have had a mechanic check the car out, which unless they are a kia dealer and are aware of this issue which did not show up to several days later after the car was purchased. this is known defect in manufacturing as evidenced online and feel that something should be done to make kia fix these problems without customers having to fork over more and more money over something kia itself is responsible for and will not rectify. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):KNDJD733645.

KIA SORENTO 2004 car safety problem was reported on Mar 30, 2012.KIA SORENTO 2004, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . summary: i was driving along the interstate at aprox. 65 mph. i heard a ticking noise and looked at the dash. no warning lights my friend asked if the car felt like it was losing speed and it was i immediatly pulled over. moving to the emergency lane the engine stalled. none of the guages indicated anything wrong , and even after the engine failed the engine check light does not light up, none of the safety indicators light up. the vehicle has 75,000 miles only 13,000 of which i am responsible for. i am not covered under the warranty because i am not the original owner which is ridicualous in itself because the warranty should cover mileage as it states not owners. however, this problem occurred because of the fluid leaking out of the water reservoir/or possibly a failed water pump that kia knows will fail. if kia was aware of this problem and did not issue a recall, knowing that this could cause serious engine problems or death, why are they not responsible for this motor? the repairs are going to cost more than 5000 dollars this should not be tolerated. if you spend any money on a vehicle, change the oil every 3 to 5 thousand miles follow all safety recalls, you should expect more than 75,000 miles out of it. kia should be held accountable! i have contacted a lawyer in this matter i believe that kia knows its vehicles are faulty and are waiting for the cost of lawsuits against them to increase to be more than the cost of a recall for this problem, before they do anything to rectify the issues. *tr.Mileage was 75000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2004 car safety problem was reported on Sept 05, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2004, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . i went to get my oil changed on/around 9/5 and they wouldn't change it due to severe rust damage that had rusted through the oil pan, brake line, at least one crack in the frame from rust, and the tires are barely held on to the car due to rust damage. now my brakes don't work but i still have to drive the car. i went to 2 other shops and no one will work on my car due to it falling apart from rust. i purchase my car at abc motor credit august of 2013 and re-located to florida before winter hit. i called them and they referred me their warranty company, lisa warranty group. of course, rust damage and frame work is not covered. abc motor credit sold me a car that should have been totaled, not re-sold to a consumer for $12,000!! i have tried 5 different dealerships to help get into a newer, safer vehicle, but no one will finance me due to the negative equity on this loan. is there anything i can do? i should not be stuck paying $367 a month for the next 2 years after already investing over $4,000 into a useless vehicle. i have to conclude that abc motor credit sold me this car fully knowing the extent of the rust damage before putting it on their lot. i hope there is some law protecting consumers from this sort of business. please let me know what i can do! .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 116000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 03, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2004, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . my son was driving this car when he heard a loud bang and lost control of vehicle while driving in a roundabout in taunton mass and nearly crashed this vehicle due to losing the ability of stabilizing it, but was able to pull off to side of road thankfully because of the speed of travel at the time, thankfully he was not on the highway or i may be telling a different story. upon driving vehicle home, my husband looked over vehicle to see where the problem was and noted frame near right rear tire had rusted totally through where it attaches to an arm of some sorts maybe a stabilizing arm(not sure). we purchased this vehicle march 2014-7 months ago and it passed inspection at the time, but i don't believe that it should have as they are supposed to check the frame as listed on inspection report and there is absolutely no way it rusted through that badly in 7 months time with roughly 6,000 miles put on it. this particular problem has been reported on many blog sites as well as on this site, their should be a recall as it seems to be a known problem, and consumers should not have to pay possibly their life for such a defect. i have pictures of this issue, and will also be notifying kia about this as well..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 125000 miles.
