I bought a 2012 Sorento and only had the car for two months when things started to go really bad with it.
Broken axles, motor mounts, transfer case, and the side panel was coming off.
Kia fixed these issues because it was covered under warranty.
On top of that the SUV did not handle well especially in the rain.
I drove it home to DC from Charlotte and we were so thankful we made it safe.
I fought with Kia wanting to get another one because that one was a lemon for sure, but they did Nothing! So, I got rid of it and bought another make and model. I do NOT recommend Kia at all. To top it all off, I thought I was saving money, but it wasn't that much cheaper than my new car.
They really need to improve on the craftsmanship.
The suspension is very bad!
Need to install better tires as well.
I'm curious about the motor mount issue. I have a 2012 Kia with
rough idle, was this a problem for you? Sorry about all of your other experiences...how did it not handle well in the rain? Thanks, John. I'm at wits end!!! Email me; email@example.com
