Kia Sorento 2012 Unknown Or Other Review #10418873

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on June 01, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with UNKNOWN OR OTHER . the problem i am having is intermittent. when i push the start button sometimes the car the lunges backwards while the car is still in park it only does this when i am starting the car. it also makes an audible noise at the same time it is " buck jumping". i have taken it to the dealer several times an on the first visit they heard the noise and figured it was the starter. they put in a new starter and i am still having this problem. the transmission also seems to slip during city driving but it is very subtle. now after about the fifth time being in the shop every time they say they can't reproduce my description of the problem to make a diagnosis so they can't fix it. however, they have already heard the problem because they put in a new starter and told me if the problem persists to bring it back. on one of the visits they rewired the electrical parts to see if it was an electrical problem and it was not. i am afraid that one of these days the car is actually going to move out of park and hit something. every time i push the start button i hold my breath and go stiff because when it "acts" up the whole car jumps backwards as if it is trying to shift itself in reverse and the noise was described as the starter is hitting the flywheel or some other terminology i can't recall. i always pick my car up from them without it being repaired because they continue to say they were unable to reproduce the problem, but how is it that as soon as the same day of picking my car up or within the next few days my car starts jumping when i push the start button. the dealership has kept my car a full week on more than one visit and the mechanic has put as many as 85 miles on it starting it frequently and you guessed it - has not been able to reproduce the problem!!!!! somebody is not forthcoming with the truth..Mileage was 100 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Dec 21, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . while coming to stop at intersection or pulling into parking lot space at low speed, i could hear and feel brakes grinding to a complete stop, upon releasing the brake pedal i could hear and feel what i believe to be the calipers grinding as they release. it happens whenever i come to a stop or when i am able to drive forward upon release of the brakes. i feel unsafe driving this vehicle. this noise occurred just after 10000 miles. before this quiet and smooth braking. on january 11, 2012 i took the vehicle in and service desk person said the service manager would like to test drive the vehicle. i observed the service manager drive out of lot and after about 20 minutes service manager walked back in and talk with service desk person. after three hours of waiting the service desk person informed me the service manager did hear the noise from the brakes and apparently they were in contact with kia corp. thru e-mail concerning this matter to see if the manufacturer will cover the repairs. after a while i was informed by the service desk that kia has been receiving numerous complaints concerning grinding noise from brakes, and that they are working on the problem, and i would have to wait until then for a solution, also per kia so said the desk person (vehicle is safe to drive until a solution can be found.) i have lost confidence in this vehicle and feel one day it may not stop at all. i respectfully request a quick review of this matter and hopefully a quick solution. *tr.Mileage was 10000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Jan 23, 2012.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with VISIBILITY . please make blind spot scores part of vehicle safety ratings. it needs to be an actual score. most terrifying test drive of my life. 2012 kia sorento was my dream car. i had built it online 10 times & walked in -specs in hand- ready to buy. the test drive to me was a formality. that changed during the test drive. new suvs are adding huge pillars to the rear of vehicles, shrinking rear third windows, shrinking rear trunk door windows, pushing driver seats tightly up against the driver door- to shrink the car and boost gas mileage. on top of that, they are pursuing "quietness" & part of that is shrinking the exterior mirrors. add this all up & you can hide a semi in the blind spot of this car. it was like driving a windowless cargo van w/o the big cargo van mirrors. the mirror are small like what belongs on an economy car. yes, my driver side mirror was well adjusted to only show a sliver of the vehicle. i just couldn't see. as i continued suv shopping, i found this new design in many new suvs. gigantic blind spots are now the new design. i couldn't see to change into the left lane. when i looked over my shoulder my face was so close to the window, all i could see behind me were the separating pillars. changing lanes was a guess. i did not buy my dream car, but more importantly i realized there is a new highly dangerous design trend in many suvs that needs monitored. consumers should be informed of the severity of this risk at the time of purchase. we need a visibility rating score on the label of vehicles. i walked away from dream car. bells and whistles don't matter if you can't even see to drive. i contacted consumer reports and requested a report that shows which suvs have the best visibility and they had nothing on the topic. it is not even monitored. how can this danger be being installed in so many vehicles and go unchecked by the whole safety industry? *tr.Kia Sorento 2012 problem was reported in ERIE, PA.

Kia Sorento 2012 Power Train Review #10449316

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Sept 03, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN . the 2012 kia sorento lx awd was purchased new with 233 miles on it. the vehicle's automatic transmission regularly hesitates to up-shift during smooth acceleration while under normal driving conditions (flat roads, cruising speeds), causing the engine to hang in the 3500+ rpm range. when the car has finished accelerating and has reached cruising speed, my foot backs off the accelerator pedal and it still does not up-shift or even coast. instead, the vehicle drastically decelerates as the engine rpms drop because the transmission remains in the same gear when my foot leaves the accelerator, rather than up-shifting to the next gear. i have driven countless automatic transmission vehicles over the years and have never experienced this phenomenon prior to owning this vehicle. i don?t normally make use of the "sportmatic shift" feature of the vehicle's automatic transmission. however, sometimes "manually" up-shifting with the sportmatic shift is the only way to get the car to up-shift properly to 5th or 6th gear once acceleration is complete and cruising speed has been reached. it seems as if either the transmission or the power train control module is ill-informed or just poorly programmed. aside from the sheer annoyance of this defect from a driver's perspective, it also is ruining the fuel economy of the vehicle. for a vehicle with an epa miles-per-gallon rating of 21 city/28 highway/23 combined, i have never once achieved true calculated fuel economy of over 20 mpg since owning this vehicle. my driving patterns are approximately 40% city and 60% highway driving. the car is driven in a fairly rural area with hardly any stop-and-go traffic. the vehicle is not carrying excess weight and all 4 tires are inflated to the manufacturer?s specification. i've seen online that several other 2012 sorento drivers are complaining about this same issue. *tr.Mileage was 233 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Sept 03, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with UNKNOWN OR OTHER . the 2012 kia sorento lx awd was purchased new with 233 miles on it. the vehicle's automatic transmission regularly hesitates to up-shift during smooth acceleration while under normal driving conditions (flat roads, cruising speeds), causing the engine to hang in the 3500+ rpm range. when the car has finished accelerating and has reached cruising speed, my foot backs off the accelerator pedal and it still does not up-shift or even coast. instead, the vehicle drastically decelerates as the engine rpms drop because the transmission remains in the same gear when my foot leaves the accelerator, rather than up-shifting to the next gear. i have driven countless automatic transmission vehicles over the years and have never experienced this phenomenon prior to owning this vehicle. i don?t normally make use of the "sportmatic shift" feature of the vehicle's automatic transmission. however, sometimes "manually" up-shifting with the sportmatic shift is the only way to get the car to up-shift properly to 5th or 6th gear once acceleration is complete and cruising speed has been reached. it seems as if either the transmission or the power train control module is ill-informed or just poorly programmed. aside from the sheer annoyance of this defect from a driver's perspective, it also is ruining the fuel economy of the vehicle. for a vehicle with an epa miles-per-gallon rating of 21 city/28 highway/23 combined, i have never once achieved true calculated fuel economy of over 20 mpg since owning this vehicle. my driving patterns are approximately 40% city and 60% highway driving. the car is driven in a fairly rural area with hardly any stop-and-go traffic. the vehicle is not carrying excess weight and all 4 tires are inflated to the manufacturer?s specification. i've seen online that several other 2012 sorento drivers are complaining about this same issue. *tr.Mileage was 233 miles. Kia Sorento 2012 problem was reported in PLANTSVILLE, CT. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 30 mph.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Dec 17, 2011.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by KIA MOTORS CORPORATION had a problem with AIR BAGS . i purchased a new kia sorento on december 14, 2011. after driving it for couple days, i noticed my airbag light. it had continued to stay on so i had notified the dealer i had purchased it from. they told me that it's probably because a passenger was not sitting there and once someone sits there and buckles their seat belt, the light will go off. it was not true at all because i have had passengers sitting there and the light was still on. so after finding some time, i took my car in to a dealership near my house and found out that the airbag cushion was missing in the passenger seat. the worker was very worried and did not want me driving the car around until they had installed the airbag cushion. i also started to have some problems with my fuel system. the first time it ever happened, the tank overfilled and started leaking from the bottom of my car. i did not know that my tank was full because the gas pump never clicked off and kept on going. then the next few times i went to put gas in, the pump kept stopping as if the tank was full. several times i had to manually stop the pump, or hold it so the pump would keep going. after finding some time (again), i took my car in. the service did not know what was wrong with the system so i had to take them to a gas station and show them what was happening. after seeing the problem, he was able to figure out what was exactly wrong with it and was able to fix it. unfortunately, the problem is back and i have to hold the pump when i am putting in gas. i need to take my car in for the third time; not to mention the first couple of times i took my car in, it was not fixed in one day, and i even had to rent a car. i had notified the kia customer service about my problems, but they were not informative and told me to contact the service at my dealership, and not contact them. *js.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):269229.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Jan 16, 2013.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation had a problem with ENGINE . i am beyond disappointed in my 2012 kia sorento. it all started when my sorento began to vibrate when traveling at interstate speed, then it just led to more complex problems. i can be driving down the interstate at normal interstate speed of 70 or going 50 and it will go crazy making unusual sounds and all the lights start going crazy. then the whole vehicle shuts off. this is very concerning since i have a 2 year old and 1 year old in my back seat and it always seems to happen when i am in a high traffic area. i purchased the sorento because it is suppose to be considered a family vehicle. that's isn't it. i can be traveling in town or where ever and when at a yield entrance way i can pull into the main road and what do you know. the sorento stalls out. it doesn't want to increase speed. this same thing also happens while i am speeding up as well. it gets up to 5rpm before changing gears. i can't let off or i will get rear ended. my sorento also has a horrible pull to the right. i have put new tires, had numerous alignments and all. nothing helps it. it has never been in any accident whatsoever, but if these problems keep up there seems to be one in the near future. i have also took it to several dealerships to get the other issues checked out but i get the same response. "they never can figure anything out" i have got several other people to drive it as well just to be sure it wasn't the way i drove. i am to the point where i am terrified to drive it and especially allow my children to ride in it. i'm sure all of us with the similar issues are not imaging things. i am so frustrated and to the point i want to consider a lawsuit because i really don't want a fatal wreck resulted from these malfunctions to finally make someone do something about these issues. not my family, your family, or anyone else's. please help us! our lives and our children's lives are at risk! *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Kia Sorento 2012 problem was reported in MOBILE, AL.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Sept 22, 2013.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation had a problem with POWER TRAIN . problem: 7 year old was able to pull console shift lever on automatic transmission without keyless ignition out of park and into neutral and/or reverse (we didn't try pulling further down the shift column) without the key in the ignition/vehicle turned on. the vehicle rolled out of our slightly inclined driveway, across the street and stopped resting against the curb on the other side of the road (despite my best efforts to stop the heavy vehicle and later to find out that the parking brake was about half way depressed, by my 7 year old since that was as far as she could push it). this incident occurred after returning from grocery shopping and the tailgate was open all the way with my 5 year old in the rear cargo area "helping" us with the groceries. luckily no body was injured and neighbors helped stop traffic as i frantically tried to get my vehicle to stop and my children to safety. i understand that i should have engaged the emergency parking brake and children should not play in the driver's seat of a vehicle, but this incident has been reported by others (after searching this website) and no matter what an automatic transmission vehicle should not disengage from park, no matter how hard one pulls on the shift lever without the vehicle turned on; a safety measure since at least 1994 when i first started driving. i should also note, that when the brake is applied while the vehicle is in motion there is a clicking noise that comes from the area of the shifter on the console, which was repaired about a year ago under warranty. i inquired at that time exactly what the issue was, but did not receive an answer from the dealership's service center, only i noticed that the issue was no longer there. now the issue had reappeared before this incident and i have not had the time to have it fixed again, but was assured the broken part did not affect safety, maybe. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 27000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Sept 22, 2013.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation had a problem with POWER TRAIN . follow-up: nhtsa id number: 10544920 after a single conversation with kia consumer affairs, i was told to immediately contact a dealer for diagnostic. i chose a new "closer" dealership that where i purchased the vehicle. stated i had a kia case #, i arrived and in a little over an hour, my vehicle was repaired, that is great job on the technicians part, but there was no discussion about whether this is a chronic issue or not and no discussion other than, the "pin which holds the vehicle in park was broken". some background: i purchased the vehicle july of 2011, had the first shifter assembly replaced due to "broken part" in march of 2012, now in sept of 2013, i had the shifter assembly replaced again. before leaving the parking lot, i called kia consumer affairs again and was told that i needed to speak to the next level up kia consumer rep, but what i wanted was to make sure my vehicle was safe to drive off the lot (my children refuse to get in the vehicle fearing for their safety). that evening i received a call and the gentleman was nice and apologetic, but not helpful and now my case is resolved. i mentioned the multiple shifter assembly replacements and if there is a chronic problem and was told i would receive a follow-up call, but never did. seems like a chronic issue that kia needs to resolve or someone will seriously get injured if not already. so far, it might be easy to determine, but i am not even 30% satisfied with this vehicle and it will be the last kia i ever purchase and it is safe to say that i do not recommend the brand to anyone either. i feel fortunate to be able to drive a newer vehicle with a warranty, but if i had the option to get rid of it, i would today. so far over the 2 years i have owned this vehicle, i have had it to a dealership for at least 6 different non-recalled issues and have lost over 4 days worth of pay...frustrating! *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 27000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Dec 13, 2013.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation had a problem with VISIBILITY:SUN ROOF ASSEMBLY . this past friday at about 2 pm i was driving my 2012 kia sorento down highway 50 when suddenly and for no apparent reason my sunroof violently exploded. i pulled over immediately because i wasn't sure at that moment what had actually happened. when i climbed up to look i found that the front portion of my panoramic sunroof was completely shattered. i looked through the glass but found no rock or any other kind of object that may have caused this to happen. fortunately the sunroof shade was closed otherwise i would have been covered in glass. i called the kia service dept. where i had bought the vehicle and spoke with the service mgr. i explained to him what had happened and he told me a rock must have flown up and hit it. now i find that highly unlikely. it was a beautiful day, 57 degrees and visibility was great. i was on an open stretch of road doing about 50 miles per hour. there wasn't any buildings on either side of road and only a few cars scattered in front and behind me. i?m pretty focused when i drive so i think if something would have flown up in front of me that could have come down and smashed my sunroof in i?m almost certain i would have seen it. i personally believe this has to be some kind of manufacturer defect. i then asked him if this was covered under my basic 5 year/ 60,000 mile warranty and he said it was not. so now i?m stuck paying a $500 deductible for my insurance to cover the damage. your agency really needs to look into this because this isn't fair to consumers like myself who have to pay out of pocket for something that to me at least seems to be a manufacturer defect. the consumer decided to withdraw his complaint. updated 01/14/13.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 24430 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Mar 20, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . at 5:40pm mst on 03/20/2014, i was approaching a 4-way intersection in a residential area at approximately 15 mph intending to stop and then make a right turn. traffic going my direction had stop signs and cross traffic did not. there was one other car approaching the intersection from my left. without warning, my 2012 kia sorento completely shut off (engine, electrical and electronic).it happened silently and without dashboard warning lights or engine noise. i was not able to fully stop or turn at the intersection as my car had lost power brakes, power steering and any ability to accelerate. when the car came to a rest, it was at a diagonal, partially blocking the intersection and facing the wrong way toward any oncoming traffic to my right (there was none at the time). the car was still in drive and the ignition was still in the fully-forward engaged position, but there were no dashboard lights illuminated and the motor was dead. the other car that had been approaching to my left was able to stop in time to avoid my car, and he drove around me and continued on. i put on my hazard lights. for the first 15 seconds or so, i was unable to get the car to shift into neutral or park. eventually, i was able to get the gear shift to move to park, but the car would not turn on despite my turning the the ignition off and on multiple times. i was about to get out and call a tow truck when the dashboard lights suddenly came back on. at that point, i was able to restart to car and drive to my destination. the car did not show any signs of a problem in the time immediately before or after this incident. we dropped off the car at the dealership the next morning 3/21/2014. at the time of this writing, the dealer has not been able to recreate the problem, nor have they found any codes on the car's computer. this is potentially an extremely dangerous problem. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 37000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Apr 03, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . incident #1: i was driving the vehicle east bound on a st in the downtown san diego area, approaching front street (exact street intersection unknown). i was in the center lane when the car, without any warning of imminent failure (not even an odd noise or electrical glitch beforehand) just completely shut off and stopped abruptly. i had no way to even move the steering wheel to try to move out of the way. i placed the vehicle in park, turned on my warning lights, turned off the ignition and then tried to re-start the vehicle. it restarted without any complication as if nothing happened. incident #2: on 05/13/2014, after approximately 6 weeks or 550 miles of use (my personal estimate), the same thing happened again. this time, i was driving west bound on cedar street in downtown san diego, at approximately 15-20 mph (decreasing speed to stop at a light) when at the corner of 5th street and cedar st., the car shut off completely again without warning or any prior indication of imminent failure. i was able to veer the car off to the side a bit because of the momentum and angle of the street but could not move the steering wheel much. i placed the car in park, turned on my warning signals, and turned of the ignition. i then shifted the vehicle to neutral then back to park, and then tried to turn on the car again and it did without any problems. the following day, i took the vehicle to the kia dealership service department. they told me they ran diagnostics and were not able to identify the problem and that they were not able to duplicate the concern. their only recommendation was to take the car in if it happens again. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 24000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Mar 12, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with ENGINE . a few months ago i was driving my daughter to her volleyball practice and upon leaving the parking lot and driving into the street i lost all power and control of my car including my power steering etc. i almost crashed the car into the side of a house but lucky i was able to press the brakes hard enough to finally get the car to stop. i then pushed the power button and all of the lights came on the display but no power to the car. i pressed the power again and the car started. then three days ago i was in the car pick up line picking up another daughter from school. i had the power of the car off and when i went to start the car it would not start. i pushed the power button and again all of the light on the display came on. then i pushed it again and it started. i believe this is a very serious issue. if myself or my husband are driving any of our 4 children on the freeway at 65-70 miles and hour and the car decides to power itself off it could become a catastrophe one of which i am not willing to risk. i have done my research and found several other complaints about these exact issues however nothing is ever done about. it's the same old story you take it into your dealer and they run the diagnostic and it doesn't show anything wrong. which is what happened to me both times i took my kia in. this automobile has a defect, which is terribly dangerous to drivers and passengers, and which the automobile manufacturer appears to be ignoring, much in the manner that gm ignored serious, dangerous, and sometimes fatal defects in one or more of its models. i truly don't understand how this same exact problem can keep happening and kia is choosing not to ignore it rather than issue a recall on the car. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 25000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Apr 18, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with STEERING . i recently purchased a kia sorento with 38k miles. when i test drove the vehicle i noticed a distinct pull in the steering and the vehicle would drift in either direction. since the vehicle still has 20k left on the kia warranty i went ahead with the purchase. i then took the vehicle into the kia dealership to have them troubleshoot the problem to which they informed me that the tires were unevenly worn and that they should be replaced. i replaced the tires and the problem persisted. i took the vehicle back to the dealership again where they performed a tsb to address the drift/pull issue and performed an alignment. the problem was still not resolved. i took the vehicle back to another dealership and they informed me that they noticed the vehicle pulling and recommended that i get another alignment. i stated that i had just had an alignment done. since it was my third time taking it in i have been in contact with a kia corporate customer service representative. she has been extremely dismissive about the problem and has not agreed to send out a tech to address the problem. there is a whole forum dedicated to the steering problems with the 2012 v6 kia sorento and yet kia refuses to acknowledge the problem. hopefully all the complaints that have been registered will prompt a corrective action from kia. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 38000 miles.

(common) 2) recall to replace ecm but customers not notified as deemed not a safety issue by kia. really???? 3) throttle actuator failure part of problem but not widely known by consumers.(common) important for 2012-to 2014 owners. new york has lemon laws. if your vehicle is less than 2 years old or has less than 18,000 miles and you have had to take it back for repairs several times, there are attorneys who live for this type of thing. i am in this group and sent e-mail today to just those type of sharks. be pro-active, not re-active. i plan on having plan b in place if i find myself going down the path of "we don,t know what is wrong, the computer says your car is fine, just because you need to rent a room at the dealership because you are there so much does not mean we don,t care". what we really mean is we really don,t care!! reality check.. fyi check this out...........http://arfc.org/complaints/2013/kia/sorento/engine/problem.aspx ps in ny don,t forget class action law-suit that is currently going on, does not cost anything to add your name to the list of plaintiffs. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 38000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Oct 15, 2014.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY:HATCHBACK/LIFTGATE . the struts on my back lift gate are already worn out on a 2012 kia sorento. i had a 2007 kia sportage prior to this vehicle and never had a problem with the back struts on the lift gate. on the sportage the glass opened separately from the bottom half of the lift gate. however, this newer vehicle wore out the back lift gate struts in just over 2 years with only 35,000 miles on the vehicle. the back lift gate is not separated between the door and the glass so the entire back lift door is extremely heavy to open and hold without the struts to keep the trunk door lifted and has the potential to hurt small children or even adults who are not anticipating a sudden failure of the struts on a vehicle with such low mileage. at this point, the entire trunk area cannot be used until the problem is fixed, but repair shops want over $500 to fix a part that should not have worn out this quickly to begin with. i will attempt seek remedy from kia directly, but wanted to bring the issue up in case others are experiencing similar problems for trend analysis and potential recall. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 35000 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on July 14, 2015.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with AIR BAGS . went out from work to start my car and noticed the airbag light would not go out. i shut the car off and restarted to see if it would go out. it would not. the very next day, i went to open the front door on the passenger side to put something in the car. the handle fell off in my hand. the passenger side door is hardly used as i am the only occupant of the car. it had not been hit or damaged, the cover just broke off. i took the vehicle in to the kia dealer. the advised me that i would have to leave the vehicle, pay $85 for a diagnostic test so they could see why the light would not go out. they said it was not covered under warranty that the warranty for it ran out at 60k miles. same with the handle. i have to pay over $40 just for them to replace the handle's cover. they said once they found out why the airbag light was on, if i paid to have it repaired that they will waive the diagnostic fee. so i have to rent a vehicle out of pocket for no telling how long, and pay for what ever is wrong with the airbag light. they claim that it will not deploy if i go into an accident. i've read several other complaints about the 2012 kia sorrento airbag not deploying. another law suit in the making just like the gas mileage one they just were sued for..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 72296 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Sept 08, 2015.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with ENGINE . while driving on i95 we began hearing a noise from the engine. it was faint at first, just a pinging that would happen when we pushed the accelerator down. we just had an oil change at 94,000 miles so knew our oil level was good. the faint noise grew steadily louder over the next 30 minutes and we pulled off the highway and into a service/gas station. the mechanics came out when they heard us pull up. they knew almost immediately that it was catastrophic engine failure and would need major repairs if not a rebuild. the kia dealer is going to confirm today, but i beileve that it is an engine connection pin that broke. we were told we were lucky it did not break and puncture the engine block while we were driving. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 95038 miles.

KIA SORENTO 2012 car safety problem was reported on Oct 07, 2015.KIA SORENTO 2012, manufactured by Kia Motors America had a problem with AIR BAGS . the red airbag dashboard light came on. i took it in to the kia dealership and they said the clock spring needed replacing. they wanted to charge me $458 dollars to fix it. i purchased this car less than a year ago. it's a 2012 so this part should not be faulty after this length of time. the car has 65,000 miles on it, and since i purchased it used it's out of warranty as of 60,000. now i am without airbags because i can't afford this repair. i feel that kia should take care of this at no charge since this part should not fail after 3 years with no accidents or steering column issues that would escalate the part failing..Mileage was 65270 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5xykt4a67cg. Kia Sorento 2012 problem was reported in WEST PALM BEACH, FL. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.
