Beyond the stereo, horn and seat belt chimes that would be the ideal! But then there's the air conditioning, heater fan, talking nav, door ajar indicator and a few others. There's always earplugs!
SUVs and Smart Shopper

Well...I have to agree they (Kia Service) did not take me serious on the "vibration"....I was persistent with every visit and eventually one of the Service Techs noted a significant vibration problem. I got ignored multiple times with a variety of "suggestions" (or excuses) as to what the problem was....the best one was that I just wasn't used to driving a 4x4 ....let's see by then I'd had a Ford Explorer 4x4 for close to 8 years!!! These days....after the major oops....they treat me nice at the service department. TBE..
Troy no luck on the receipt with the part #. Will post again...have to go through receipts for taxes so with luck it will be there.

I do not necessarily need a part number, i just need to know where to tell the mechanic to look. the problem is there are various stepper motors in the vehicle performing different operations. I need to pin it down to an exact one. Thanks for looking
#36 of 78 Crankshaft bolt broke today

This is kinda off topic. My crankshaft bolt broke today. my car is out of warranty plus my vin number was not included in the recall for this part. so kia Canada is trying to pass off responsibility. These guys need a class action lawsuit or something

#39 of 78 Screeching Noise when turning left & braking
Jul 13, 2010 (7:06 am)
Three days ago i began hearing a loud screeching sound coming from the front drivers side of my 2005 kia sorento. The sound happens when braking but also (strangely) when turning left (only). Thinking it may possibly be the brake pads, my husband changed both sides; while they did need to be changed, this did not solve the horrible screeching sound. Has anyone had a similar issue or can possibly provide me w/ information on what the problem could possibly be? Hopefully, nothing too expensive... Thanks!

When do you replace the shocks and struts on a 2007 Kia Sorento?
#41 of 78 Problemas con la suspensión trasera
Jan 07, 2011 (7:47 pm)
Vivo en Venezuela y poseo una KIA Sorento 2006 XS, actualmente esta presentando problemas con la suspensión, específicamente la trasera, la camioneta rebota mucho cada vez que paso por algún obstáculo, a pesar de haberle cambiado hace 2 meses los amortiguadores por unos originales. Alguien del foro podria sugerir alguna solucion viable a mi problema

So what did this end up being? Just curiouos as I just got my 2007 Sorento back from the shop....yesterday it was loud crunching noise out of right front wheel started after we had just hit town after a two day trip coverinng maybe a little over 200 miles....we hit town and stopped to do an errand. Got in the car & while backing out of parking spot heard weird crunch-like sound ...intermittent with moving back & forward. It had a vibration. So fortunately my daughter & I with our superb problem solving skills decided to get a tow to the KIA shop on Sundary no less. Left a note & the keys. Got it back today with replaced wheel bearings on right covered under warrnaty. NICE SURPRISE. Only negative...when I asked about the replacing the left was told not covered under warranty but was told if a customer came in with the same problem outside of warranty they would strongly reccomend that both sides get replaced. I suggested that lets hope it doesn't fail and cause an accident. Apparently the wheel pretty got a lot worse when the frove it from the parking space into the shop. He told me he wasn't sure he would make it without freezing up. He told me our BEST decision was the ow.
