NHTSA — Tires: Pressure Monitoring And Regulating Systems Problems

CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

CarComplaints.com Notes: Kia really changed the design of the Sorento in the 2011 model year. Instead of a truck-like body-on-frame more capable of offroad adventures, the newest Sorento is a unibody construction and is much more crossover than sport utility. The changes brought a whole slew of problems, including a frustrating problem where the door that won’t open. Is it too late to go back?

On two different dates about a week apart we had two TPMS failures. On the first one the TPMS tire pressure monitor system sensor located in the passenger rear wheel cracked and was losing air. TPMS sensor was replaced. Around a week later while my wife was traveling at highway speed the passenger side front TPMS sensor retaining cap fell off due to corroded threads and the sensor fell into the tire causing a high speed deflation. Dealer has not been notified of the second failure as we have an appointment in the next couple weeks. This vehicle has been dealer serviced since new and has all required service done.
