Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5XYKU4A27BG. Kia Sorento 2011 problem was reported in FORT WORTH, TX. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 0 mph.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on Dec 27, 2010.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by HYUNDAI-KIA AMERICA TECHNICAL CENTER INC had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . the dashboard gages are lighed all the time in my vehicle. this creates a safety problem as dusk approaches. because the dashboard lights are clearly visible at all times there is no clear visual cue to turn on the head lights. in my opinion the simple fix is to design the dashboard gages so they are visible during the day with out, or with minimal, lighting so that as daylight wanes the dash becomes more difficult to see thereby providing the driver with a visual que to turn on the vehicle's lights. i have noticed other vehicle makes being operated with the headlights off but the dashboard well illuminated (while being passed on the highway) in low light conditions. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 0 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on Mar 03, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i was driving my 2011 kia sorento from arkansas to indiana. i stopped off to get gas and felt like someone bumped me in the rear end when i came to a stop. i looked behind me and there was plenty of room between the car behind me and myself. i wasn't sure what it was so i didn't really think too much about it and went on my way. the next time i got off the interstate and stopped, it did it again. i then called the dealership i bought my sorento from and made an appt to take it in the following day. needless to say it didn't make it to the next day. as soon as i got off the interstate (thankfully at my exit) the transmission went completely out. i then had to call roadside assistance and they had to tow it to the dealership. the next day i went to the dealership to find out that they were going to have to put a whole new transmission in my vehicle. i was provided a rental car until the service was complete. the thing was i was only in town for a long weekend and had to get back to arkansas. they told me that i could drive the rental car back to arkansas but would have to come get the sorento when it was ready. (they would not ship the sorento to me) it did end up working out ok, my mother and father inlaw picked up the sorento when it was fixed and i drove one of their vehicles down to arkansas. they brought the sorento down to me on their vacation. i am very disappointed that the transmission went out in my brand new vehicle. i don't think that i will ever feel totally safe driving it again. i'm always going to be wondering what is going to happen next. *tr.Mileage was 24000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on Apr 01, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . after the first dealer oil change i began getting lifter noise on engine start up that would last for minutes. the problem has gotten worse. dealer refuses to aknowledge the problem and now i have put a non-op on my brand new 2011 sorento because of this problem. tried to get this resolved with a lawyer and the company refused to take the car back. i have been forced to retain a lemon law attorney to get this resolved. kia motors does not stand behind their warranty. my car was in and out of different dealerships with an array of problems. the interior cloth around the rear hatch is coming apart and the car was in the shop 3 times for it and it was never fixed. the last dealer said that they have to get "special permission" to fix this even though the car is under factory warranty. the brakes are getting very spongy,and they are still not fixed. the car has been in the shop for over 70 days on and off with most of my complaints being ignored. one of my original complaints was a glare off the instrument cluster that blinds the driver on sunny days. i almost hit another car when i was momentarily blinded by the "chrome rings" around the cluster while flashed in the eyes as i was going around a curve. they said that they could not correct this problem because it was an "engineering" problem. the bluetooth still does not work correctly,and i am still getting warning lights that go on and off,including low tire pressure (when the tires are fine) as well as an emissions light and a check engine light . there are many problems with this car and it is parked because of them. the car is not safe to drive,and i submit that the company knows a lot more about these problems than they are letting on..Mileage was 5000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on Nov 01, 2010.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . delay in acceleration after applying brakes. this happens from a dead start and also while moving. especially bad when trying to back up a grade. (ex.) while backing up a grade such as a driveway to the garage i back up and then hit my brake to stop. i then realize i need to back up a little farther. i take my foot off of the brake and push the accelerator. instead of going backwards i drift forward. in my mind i am thinking i don't have the accelerator pushed down so i push harder and about that time the accelerator kicks in and i go flying backwards toward the garage door. (ex.2) i am trying to back a boat into the river. i back up and hold my foot on the brake. i need to pull back out of the water some so i quickly release my foot from the brake and push the accelerator. now instead of going forward there is a delay in acceleration and i drift further into the river. (someone is going to have a very bad accident) multiply this occurrence at every stop sign. especially where there is a grade involved. in my opinion i believe this is a design in the computer for what ever reason and it is a very dangerous one. *tr.Mileage was 100 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on Jan 13, 2012.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . i was driving on i-95 at aprox. 65 mph and felt a severe jolt. this could have caused an inexperienced driver like either of my kids to loose control. i initially thought someone had hit the rear of my car. there didn't seem to be any other vehicles close enough to have hit me, so i pulled over onto the shoulder to see if i had hit something. everything looked fine so i proceeded to get back onto the highway. i noticed the car was sluggish and then noticed it was not shifting gears. as i continued to accelerate the engine rpm continued to climb so i had to drive below 45mph.when the shifter was moved to the manual side it was in 4th gear. i pulled over onto the shoulder again and shifted into neutral and drive a few times but it would always go back to 4th gear when in drive. i had to drive the rest of the way, about 20 miles at a slower speed with the flashers on. this morning i checked out the car and it was operating normally. i will bring the vehicle to kia, but will not let other family members drive the car unless i am certain it is corrected. i now see there are a lot of the same complaints on edmonds. com. is there a recall for this? i could not find one on your web-site. *tr.Mileage was 10325 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on May 02, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with SUSPENSION . i have taken my 2011 kia sorento in 3 or 4 times to see if they can find out what is wrong with the suspension. they did a visual inspection and said all looks good. they have refused to do anything to my vehicle. the mechanic agreed with me, on the rough ride. the vehicle bounces all over the road. kia did change the suspension in oct of 2011 on all new sorentos. which tells me they know there is a problem with the old ones. also if you look online it appears a lot of people who bought sorentos in the beginning are complaining about the rough ride. kia needs to do recall on all older models and up grade them. (this is from autoblog.com: kia noticed this ride quality issue and decided to take the costlier dfd dampers and employ them not just on the new sx model, but across the model's entire range beginning in the fourth quarter. while kia officials we spoke with at an atlanta press event this week stopped short of admitting that the sorento's ride quality has been an issue, they did note that once engineers sampled the dfd setup on the sx, they liked the ride so much they decided to institute the new units on all sorentos.) *tr .Mileage was 7000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on Dec 16, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with SUSPENSION . i bought my 2011 sorento sx awd 2 months ago and have had nothing but problems with it. the dealer has aligned the car 3 times for pulling to the right, it still does it. my biggest issue is the vibration and groan sound i get when driving at 57mph. the sound is a resonating and annoying sound which goes up and down and seems to subside after 60mph and get bad again at 80mph. the dealer has balanced the new tires 3 times, swapped the drive line with another sorento and it didn't improve it at all. they placed a new drive line and it made it worse. i have opened a trouble ticket and a case number with kia customer support but they have said the issue is an inherent characteristic of this vehicle. not acceptable by me. kia corp needs to find a solution for this issue. i am wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue and have a fix for it. *tr.Mileage was 2700 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on July 01, 2010.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . after using brakes to slow down, accelerator hesitates. need to push gas pedal down several times before accelerating (it becomes "dead"). has occurred at least 6 times if not more. reported it to dealership twice and they attributed it to the fact that if you use two feet to drive (left foot on brake - right on gas) and if there is a chance that left foot may be slightly touching brake pedal, then the computer is "confused". not an acceptable answer. some people do drive this way and this should be taken into account. it is a safety risk and a near risk on a couple instances. kia needs to be accountable and address this situation. *js.Mileage was 1500 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on July 01, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . the date above is the first date there was a indication of a problem. the actual speed of travel has varied. the issue is random and has affected most systems at one time or the other. it has normally been a headache more than safety always going away after shutting the car down and restarting. to me it became a safety issue when about two months ago i heard a loud bang like i hit something and then my rpms increased and the transmission would not shift out of the lower gears. i pulled into a safe parking area, shut the car down and called the dealer. after restarting the car the problem went away, just as it has every time no matter what system has been affected. the issues have ranged from a cruise control refusing to activate, the cruise control having erratic behavior (often kicking in the passing gear when not required), total electronic panel shutdown (including radio), to doors locking on their own when open, to headlights not being turned off when they should have been after 2-30 seconds. the transmission issue has been the most serious. the car should have already been serviced under a similar recall. i have noted similar complaints including a similar transmission compliant on kia forums. kia itself refused to give the go ahead for a computer reset/upgrade. my dealer did this on his own for me after i made it clear this has gone too far. a personal conversation with kia was negative and was nothing short of talking in circles. i understand the issue of trying to traced random problems, but not the failure to start an investigation into, for instance, possible computer shielding issues making outside interference a possibility. it remains to be seen if the computer update works, but it is a issue when a transmission shuts totally or partly down. the dealer has never been able to verify my complaints. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 5000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on Aug 27, 2012.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . was driving along at about 35mph and noticed a vehicle turning in front of me. i brake to stop or slow down at least. the brakes failed completely, no brakes, did not stop vehicle. it was like the anti-lock system was trying to work, but worked faulty, almost in a reverse fashion. i pressed brake pedal to no avail, like it was slipping, but nothing to slip on. long story short i ended up going in the ditch to avoid running into the vehicle. previous to this about 2months the shifter would not go into the park position, no matter what i tried, thankfully i was near the dealership. they replaced the brake controller and it seemed to fix the problem until now. furthermore, when i go around a corner at a reasonable speed the engine kills power for a split second, and the anti-sway lights kick on. this seems to be more of a safety concern than a safety fix. i feel having 3 serious potentially life threatening situations in the last 3 months merits further investigation into this model of kia, before it literally is killed in action, kia. i recently watch the news and saw a stuck accelerator problem on this model as well, hope you will take action. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 34000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on June 23, 2013.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:SWITCHES:BRAKE LIGHT . i came to a stop, suddenly the dash lights started flashing, and the car would not accelerate. i turned the key a couple of times but nothing happened, i turned off the radio and then turned on my emergency flashers. i then put the car in park and turned the key again. this time the car started and i drove it home. two days later the sorento was taken to the shop. possible reason given on the workorder for the stalling/shutting down was that the gas tank had been overfilled. the technician also told my husband that this problem had been reported in other vehicles and should be solved by the brake switch recall, service bulletin 13v114000. he explained that the engine control system receives a signal from the brake switch for the starting process and, if the signal is not received, the vehicle will not start. because of the faulty brake switch, he stated that it could interrupt the operation of the vehicle by sending an erroneous signal to the engine control system, activating the "no start" process. even with the vehicle running, this would cause the engine to cut out. he further stated this recall replacement of the brake light signal switch should cure that problem. after running a complete diagnostic check on the vehicle, the service rep said there were no stored codes in the engine control memory indicating a fault. since shutting the motor off due to an erroneous signal that the brake was not engaged is not a set fault code, this may not have been recorded. also, the rep stated that if a fault had occurred, it may not have been in place long enough to record a fault code. though he did give these answers verbally, they were not specifically indicated on the service invoice, and this connection was not listed on the recall notice for the brake light switch. is this kias official position that the brake switch recall fixes the engine shutdown? *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 40000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on May 22, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i have been experiencing multiple issues with my 2011 sorento not starting at all or only starting with the fob in the charger since december 2013. more recently i have had issues where the vehicle won't lock or it locks and then won't unlock until i am able to open the rear hatch manually and then the fob will unlock the other doors. yesterday i was at a gas station and my fuel door wouldn't open (no clicking sound or anything) until i started the car with the key fob in the charger and then i was able to open the fuel door while it was running. when the vehicle won't start with the fob in the charger, i have either had to use the "unofficial" start method with my foot off the brake and holding in the start button for 15 seconds or if that doesn't work i have had to jump start the battery. my local kia dealership told me that i needed to replace the car battery but i really don't feel that is the issue because there are some days that this doesn't happen at all. i am scared that at some point i will be locked out of the vehicle with my children inside or that i will be stranded somewhere because of this issue. at this point i have only one working fob - i took my car in to the dealer and explained that one of the fobs wasn't working but they told me (after working on all of the recalls for 7+ hours) that the fob was fine. so, i don't even have a backup key. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 69000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on May 17, 2012.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation had a problem with UNKNOWN OR OTHER . purchased 2011 kia sorento - new- from local dealership on 5/13/2011. in one year (5/17/2012) right-rear passenger door started sticking. ended up being the door panel sticking on the weather stripping, but this required two subsequent attempts to repair, on 6/6/2012 (weather strip replaced) and 9/5/2012 (door panel replaced) (covered by warranty). this final solution of replacing the door panel worked, until 6/19/2014. same issue, with the same door, reoccurred. the door panel clips have been replaced. the dealer ship opened a case with kia at our request and adjusted the door strike plate. the problem seemed to be fixed, but within two days, we are ready to take it back to re-address the issue. at this point the mileage has placed the car out of warranty, thus the current cost of the part (the door panel) being $675, plus labor, is on us to bear and likely, based on the previous record will not be the final repair required for this round. we fully expect this same door to fail in another two years. we feel that this issue is a safety hazard as when someone tries to open the door, forgetting it is broken, and does not push hard to close the door, it is not fully engaged. there is an open case with kia directly to address the problem (k2738522). they only mentioned assisting with the repair, not repairing it at their cost, for what is likely a quality and safety issue with this particular vehicle and door. it does not seem to be limited to the 2011 model year as i did find another instance of this same problem on a 2012 model in the wild: http://www.edmunds.com/kia/sorento/2012/consumer-reviews/rear-passenger-door-won't-open.html?style=101388024&sub=&reviewid=964955855.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 29359 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on Feb 12, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation had a problem with SUSPENSION . 2/12/14 was the date that i purchased this vehicle. i have hated every minute of it since. it kept sounding like stuff was falling off the bottom of my car. i took it in and here both the front struts are out. then to find out they where out before i even bought the vehicle! i have been waiting months for kia to get the parts in this country to have my car fixed! since then i have been stuck driving my new/used vehicle with no struts. without the struts working that alignment is off which causes the vehicle to pull. i have two young children that ride in this vehicle plus i drive 25 miles to work and 25 miles back every day. i call kia and the dealership to check on the parts order and all they can say is they are back ordered.....well, if it is a 2011 and parts are back ordered so far i have to wait months to get them, something is wrong. struts should not have to be replaced this soon on a car. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5XYKT4A17BG.

KIA SORENTO 2011 car safety problem was reported on Aug 08, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2011, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with AIR BAGS . airbag light came on at approximately 70000 miles, reset and remained off for a while. back on at 72000 miles. diagnosed by dealer that it is related to faulty passenger side ocs sensor mat, with repair cost of approx. $2000. contacted kia and they checked with district manager to see if they would do anything regarding the issue (fix, discount, etc.) and was informed they would not. unfortunately out of standard warranty due to mileage...which to me a safety sensor becoming faulty would have nothin to do with mileage and is not really that old. exhuberant cost for most people to repair, which we currently do not have finances to do. in researching, after the fact, appears kia has had a long line of issues with airbag and ocs sensors. makes me wonder if issues still exist in this model, but most are still being covered under warranty or if we happened to just get a "lemon". (not only issue we have had with car, but being related to safety wanted to share.).0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 72000 miles.
