2016 Kia Sorento Owner Comments

problem #3

Defective lower balljoints caused a rough ride. Noticed 'clanking' sound from front wheels when parking vehicle. Sunroof malfunction caused the sunroof to not fully close and often times, remain open. Dealer initially claimed that dry track channels with debris was the main cause however, there is a defect with the manufacturing/design of the product.
