I was starting off from stop sign and felt and heard a loud thud from the engine area. Immediately the 2012 Sorento lost power and would not shift. It would continue to move at about 5 mph. The engine did not stop. I stopped the vehicle and restarted but with the same symptoms. Being very close to the dealer, I took it in. The sales dept has agreed to find another vehicle and replace this one. I'm not so sure...
