KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on Apr 05, 2007.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by KIA MOTORS AMERICA, INC. had a problem with AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:SENSOR/CONTROL MODULE . i have a 2007 kia sorrento that was purchased partly because of the 5 star safety rating. however, in my particular vehicle the passenger side airbag deactivation sensor designed to deactivate the passenger side airbag when the seat is occupied by a child also deactivates the airbag more than 50% of the time when an adult occupies the seat. i have reported this issue to my dealer 3 times and the service manager tells me that there is nothing they can do because there is no "fix" from the factory. he also told me that he is not aware of anyone else having this problem ( i doubt that) and that kia was not particularly concerned about this problem because the passenger side airbag was a "secondary protection device" which was not really necessary to protect the occupant if the occupant was wearing his/her seat belt. i called kia customer service and they basically "blew me off" saying that kia would fix the problem in "due time". how can kia advertise a 5 star safety rating when in fact they are aware of this sensor issue and are not willing or able to fix it? appears to me that there is some false advertising going on and really we have about a 2 star safety rating! *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 100 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on July 19, 2007.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by KIA MOTORS AMERICA, INC. had a problem with AIR BAGS:FRONTAL . our 2007 kia sorento has a problem with the passenger air bag system. this is my wife's car and i ride as a passenger. when i ride 75% of the time the air bag light will not go off, this tells us that the passenger airbag system is not on. we have noticed many things that will correct this and also make it happen. one thing is it normally happens after the car has been left off for awhile. the air bag light may go off are you start the car but when you shift it into gear it pops on. you can also get it to come on sometimes when you remove your seat belt. you can sometimes correct the problems by shutting off and resarting the car. now this is a very annoying problem and a erratic issue. being a automotive tech and a electronic tech i can see how the kia dealer will not be able to help with out seeing the problem. the kia dealer here is really no help as when we took it in the service manager said "show me the problem" but of course we could not reproduce it at that time. we have since had the car for a few months and have taken notice of how the problem is showing up. we have not taken it in as we have lost confidence in the kia technical staff as to there capabilities of repair. i should say we first bought a 06 sorento and had it in the dealership for 5 weeks out of the 7 weeks, we owned it and traded it in for the 07 trying to give kia a chance to redeem for all the problems before. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):KNDJD736075.

KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on July 10, 2007.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by KIA MOTORS AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . in july, 2007, i purchased a 2007 kia sorento. on my first occasion to drive on the interstate, coming home from work, i encountered a major shudder or jerking when traveling at approximately 35 mph. the interstate was very show traveling due to an accident. when i tried to accelerate, the car shuddered (or jerked) several times extremely hard but then straightened out. the hard shudders occur at approximately 35 to 45 mph. also, when traveling with the cruise control engaged, if i have to disengage the cruise control due to slowing traffic, i press the middle cruise control button and take over manually. when traffic picks back up, i press the "resume" button, again...the shudder. the shudder or jerking always happens upon acceleration. when attempting a hill at 35 to 45 mph, the car loses power all together and really struggles until reaching the top. i had contacted the dealership and taken the sorento in for repair. the service manager drove the car, did in fact experience the shudder, but was unable to come up with a solution to fix it. he contacted his district manager who said he was working a car with the same problem and was trying to find a "cure." i have taken my car back to the dealership and even drove with the service manager. he acknowledges the problem but, again, at this time, there is no solution as to how to fix it. i contacted kia headquarters to see if they were working on trying to find a solution to fix the shudder. i was told that this is probably a characteristic of the car and would be considered "normal" performance for the sorento. i find this totally unacceptable. i had driven a loaner sorento when mine was in for maintenance and it did not do the shudder. i am very disappointed with my sorento and am considering trading again. *tr.Mileage was 110 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on Apr 20, 2007.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by HYUNDAI-KIA AMERICA TECHNICAL CENTER INC had a problem with AIR BAGS:FRONTAL . the sensor for the passenger air bag is nor working reliably. most of the time it either does not detect my wife at all, or, while i am driving, it suddenly signals that the passenger air bag is off, even though she is still seated. when it does not detect her, the sign ┐passenger air bag off┐ is lit. there is no problem when i (210 pounds) sit on the passenger side, only for my 148 pound wife. i am afraid that our 2007 sorento will not be capable of performing a possibly lifesaving act in the case of an accident. as a passenger, she is unprotected. a friend of ours has a 2008 sportage that also has a sensor for the air bag in the passenger seat cushion and there it works every time my wife gets in the car. we have visited our local dealership several times; having the program reflashed three times and even the seat cushion was replaced with a new one with a new sensor. unfortunately, the problem was never resolved. our dealership informed us after our last visit that they have done all they can do. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 25000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):KNDJD736475. Kia Sorento 2007 problem was reported in WINTER PARK, FL. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

Kia Sorento 2007 Air Bags Frontal Review #10263991

KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on Feb 03, 2009.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by HYUNDAI-KIA AMERICA TECHNICAL CENTER INC had a problem with AIR BAGS:FRONTAL . the passenger air bag sensor in the vehicle is poorly designed and will frequently disable the front passenger airbag while an adult passenger is riding in the proper manner, as displayed by the vehicles owner manual. moreover, the air bag sensor does not continuously monitor the passenger after it has determined that the air bag should be off - the only way to reset the airbag is to have the passenger lift themselves off of the seat (while remaining buckled) for over 2 seconds. even turning the vehicle off, removing the key, and turning the vehicle back on does not work very reliably - resetting the sensor ~35% of the time. the airbag sensor on this vehicle is a known issue (tsb# kt2008022001), and repeated calls to service centers re-enforce that the manufacturer has no intentions of issuing a recall or even a simple software update to remedy the problem. instead, they instruct that the service members find a 'sufficiently large' mechanic, instruct them to sit in the seat to ensure that the device works correctly. obviously, if you significantly exceed the minimum weight, the sensor works correctly. however, i've had the problem with adult passengers with weights ranging from 120-170 lbs and consider it to be a significant safety flaw with the vehicle. *tr.Mileage was 500 miles. Kia Sorento 2007 problem was reported in HILTON, NY. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 15 mph.

KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on Apr 01, 2010.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL . i am an owner of a 07 kia sorento ex. a few months ago i noticed the "esc off" light would illuminate at random instances and would not turn off until the vehicle's engine was turned off and then restarted again. this issue is of concern to myself as well as other kia owners i have come across. reason being, when the "esc off" light engages and stays on, the vehicle loses power while driving. i have had two separate occasions where this has happened on the freeway. while changing lanes and trying to accelerate, i was stuck at a speed of 50mph with traffic behind me at 65mph or faster. assuming that i was going to accelerate the vehicles behind me had to slam on their brakes instead. when i took my kia to the dealer to diagnose the problem i was informed that i am not the first customer experiencing this problem and that there is a service bulletin posted regarding the "esc off" light illuminating and vehicle throttle loss. the diagnostic check read, that there is a transfer case decoder motor fault. i was told kia was offering to cover the repairs under 60000mi warranty but that i came in at 62000 and did not comply with recommended transfer case services listed in the manual, they would not cover under any warranty. kia believes that my lack of transfer case service to my vehicle is the reason for this problem. i can't help but to think, that based on how many kia sorento consumers are having this same problem there may be a defect in kia's "esc" system. in my experience with this issue i can say that i believe this to be a serious safety hazard while driving. *tr.Mileage was 55000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on Oct 27, 2009.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . my 2007 kia sorento was involved in two accidents in 2009-10. both were as a result of a faulty 4-wheel drive mechanism. when we purchased the car in 2007, we reported to the dealership that when the car was in 4-wheel drive and stopped to turn, it made a jerking movement that was dangerous. we were told it operated as designed. on february 21, 2010, i was turning into my garage in central oregon on ice, the car was in 4-wheel drive and it made a series of lurching movements which caused the car to slide into the garage wall. i still have the dent in the passenger door from that incident. on october 27, 2009 on my way to work, i noticed the temperature was 31 degrees, and put my ("on the fly" 4-wheel drive) car into 4-wheel drive. i immediately went into a 360 spin on a highway. i was driving approximately 40 miles an hour. all four tires were flat when i landed in the dirt on the side of the road. the dealership told me this car isn't an "on the fly" 4-wheel drive even though the manual says it is. i reported both of these accidents to kia safety headquarters. they tell me the car operates as designed, and therefore are not concerned. i am very concerned that someone will die in one of these 2007 kia's when using 4-wheel drive. i know that kia redesigned the sorento in 2008 to be all wheel, and it doesn't have this design defect . however, what about all of us who drive in cold, icy weather many days of the year and need our 4-wheel drive? do we just hope the jerking motion when we are stopped and turning will not cause us to slide into something? do we stop every time we need to put our "on the fly" four wheel drive in play? kia needs to fix our cars so they are safe for the entire 100,000 mile warranty period! *kb.Vehicle was involved in a crash.

KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on Aug 01, 2009.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with AIR BAGS . the passenger side airbag sensor in my 2007 kia sorento has failed intermittently ever since i purchased the vehicle in 2009. it fails at least 50% of the time when a passenger is in the seat (sometimes >200 lbs.) upon complaining to the dealer, they continued to insist that the passenger was not sitting properly in the seat. this is ridiculous. i know of no other cars where that is an issue. the dealer says to get out and back in again, but that is not going to happen when you are on a busy highway going 65 mph and realize the airbag is not on. so, then they say to lift your butt up for 10 seconds and then sit back down. it sometimes works, but takes a few tries. and, do you know how embarrassing that is to ask a guest (particularly if a business guest) to do that? again, it is just so ridiculous that i fear owners will ignore it thus putting their passengers at risk. so, i was thrilled to see that there was finally a recall of the 2007 sorento passenger airbag sensor in the fall of 2011. finally, they admit there is a problem. however, then the dealer says that my vin is not covered by the recall. really??? this recall needs to be expanded. i am taking my car back again next week and if it is not replaced by kia, i will be calling the kia headquarters legal department to complain. if you can help get this recall expanded so that i and others do not have to go through this, i would greatly appreciate it. *tr.Mileage was 8000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on Aug 04, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL . esc and check engine light illuminated. took vehicle to dealer for repairs. dealer service dept stated that brake light switch was at fault, but that it had been previously replaced in mar 2010 under a recall campaign. after replacing switch this time, dealer service adviser stated that switch appeared to be original, but that i would still have to pay for parts and labor ($129.86). i paid but protested. i have serious doubts that brake light switch was replaced in mar 2010 as dealer stated, since the recently replaced switch appeared to be original equipment. subsequently, i feel as though i should not have to pay for the most recent (aug 2014) repair, especially if switch had not been replaced under recall campaign previously. i suspect that dealer either falsified the mar 2010 repair, and/or replaced recalled switch with identical replacement (which is prone to failure). what good is a recall if original defect was simply reinstalled? i do have possession of defective switch replaced in aug 2014. not only do i want my money returned to me, but i would like some assurance that the problem is now remedied with a reliable switch. please respond..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 98432 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):KNDJC736X75. Kia Sorento 2007 problem was reported in AURORA, CO. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

Kia Sorento 2007 Electronic Stability Control Review #10630884

KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on Aug 05, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL . beginning in early august 2014, the esc and check engine light would illuminate while driving down the road. the vehicle accelerator stops working and the vehicle goes into limp mode. we are unable to get more than 40 mph out of it and on several occasions, nearly caused an accident when other vehicles would come up from behind very suddenly. we were fortunate that we were in an area where we could get off the road quickly. once we have come to a stop, if we turn the engine off and restart, the lights reset themselves and the vehicle functions normally until the next time it happens. the first time it happened was shortly after we bought the car new and the kia dealership replaced a brake light switch under recall #09v130000. this helped until recently. we took the vehicle to the dealership and they replaced a throttle position sensor at the cost of $395.00. it helped for two weeks and the problem returned exactly the same. this time the dealer informed us that it was the accelerator pedal assy - engine control system at the tune of $250.00 all these items are part of the esc system and cause the vehicle to go to limp mode. i'm concerned that there may be other sub-assemblies associated with it and every time one goes bad, we'll end up in limp mode and/or a hood ornament on a kenworth. this is ridiculous and needs to be addressed by kia at no cost to consumers..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 130000 miles. Kia Sorento 2007 problem was reported in DAYTON, OH. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 65 mph.

KIA SORENTO 2007 car safety problem was reported on Mar 01, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2007, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i own a 2007 kia sorento lx with 47,760 miles on it currently (today's date 09/10/2014). the first symptoms happened a few months ago where my car would hesitate upon acceleration and/or i would be traveling between 30-45 mph and the car would begin bucking/jerking for a few seconds. this was very intermittent and random. if i took my foot off the gas pedal, then reapplied the gas the car would be fine. then that symptom went away and i gained a new symptom. i was driving approximately 30 mph, when all of the sudden my ecs off light and check engine light came on simultaneously, and i instantly lost power/acceleration. it appears that when this happens the car goes into "limp home" mode? it has happened twice to me in the past 3 days. this is very dangerous because the loss of power/acceleration is instant, it happens without warning, and it does not matter how fast you are going. this could cause loss of life if it happens on a highway at a high rate of speed. all of these symptoms began to appear right after i had the recalls done on my vehicle (i.e. brake switch and ecm upgrade). my car was fine before i had the recalls done..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 47760 miles.
