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?

  • 200 miles


The contact owns a 2011 Kia Sorento. While driving approximately 30 mph the vehicle began to pull towards the right. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where they put air into the tires. The failure continued to recur and the vehicle was taken back to the authorized dealer where the tires were rotated and an unknown engine adjustment was performed. The failure continued to recur so the vehicle was again taken to an authorized dealer where she was informed the front spring coils needed to be replaced. The parts were on back order so the vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 200 and the current mileage was 600. The VIN was unavailable.
