2012 Sorento, 8500 miles, dash lights fail intermittantly. dealer can't replicate the problem, just says "bring it in when it happens again", but then they are too busy to look at it, so keep it awhile, and it works fine. AAArrrghhh!

Repeatedly had headlamps blow on my KIA Sorento 2011. Sent this message to KIA: "This is in reference to case # K241D635. Thank you for returning my call after I sent the previous message. I have read many blog entries concerning the same type of problem that I have been experiencing with my Sorento. I do not appreciate being talked down to by the representative that I talked to when I returned the call. I am not, as I am sure most of the other people in the blogs are not, just a disgruntled customer. I was having a repeated real problem with my vehicle that is probably a defect that possibly should result in a recall. I bought a KIA in good faith that it would be a dependable vehicle and that you would stand behind the product. I even purchased an extended warranty that did not cover my problem. I usually use the dealer for any work that needs to be done on the vehicle, but when your headlight goes out and you get stopped by the sheriff at 5:30 am, and you work for 12 hours that day, the dealer is closed and you must stop by a parts store and purchase a new bulb. It wasn't that it wasn't a "KIA" bulb or that I didn't have it installed at the dealer that was the root of the problem -- that is pure BS. I ended up spending $650+ for the dealer to replace the headlight assembly to fix the problem. I told the representative that this disgruntled customer fixed the problem by selling the son of a bitch. I can assure you that I will never purchase another KIA. I just feel sorry for all the rest of the customers in the same predicament. "

I love my Kia but like many others, I have been purchasing headlamp bulbs way too many often for my Kia. If it's not the left one, it's the right one and I am tired of it. I plan to file a complaint with the NTHSA. I agree with whoever it was that said that if we complain to the right people, maybe something will be done.
