Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: There are just too many engine stalls or shuts down while driving reports to feel good about the Sorento. Especially when those things happen, on average, at just over 32,000 miles. Hopefully things will change.

2013 Kia Sorento Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012012

Sorento UT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,900 miles


After more than 5 trips to dealership to repair and replace the Bluetooth/GPS/Radio system, it is still not working properly. Apparently, this is a problem throughout the KIA vehicles and not solely a Sorento issue. The bluetooth will not stay paired with mobile phone. It will disconnect after first call or within 10 to 15 minutes of driving time. After disconnecting, I cannot pair it again without going to dealership. Then the cycle repeats itself. Just had a remanufactured system installed 3 days ago and was disconnected once again after first call. I need my hands free bluetooth to work as I use this for my job and have to pull over everytime I need to make a call. This is not only time consuming, but not what I purchased. Getting ready to file for Lemon Law.
