problem #3

Sorento LX 3.3L 6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 118,061 miles

This thing burns oil so fast. I had to put 2 litres in it halfway between an oil change. Now I check it every second fill up and top it off.

problem #2

Jun 012021

Sorento GL 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

Checked oil level and observed the add oil mark, so I added oil. It was a routine problem. Then codes came up for cam/crank sensor. June of 2022, I finally replaced cam and crank sensors, cleared code and it came right back. Emission law won't let it pass inspection in spite of normal running. Via report, this car and engine was actually manufactured on 10/27/2014 then labeled a 2015. Kia dealer wants 6k to fix the engine. WHY? An engine should last, not to have issues at 50,000 to 60,000 miles.

problem #1

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles

We had a 2015 Kia Sorento that was burning through very high amounts of oil when driven on the highway. The dealership could not find a problem but asked us to supply all oil change records which we did not have available. The car was under lease. When we brought it back we were told we had to pay over $6000. We have not paid at this point.
