Kia Sorento 2008 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Sorento 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Kia Sorento 2008: Electronics replacement under warranty?

    If you have records showing when you reported it to the Ford dealer I would think you have some claim, although it's a little unclear because you've since had it worked on by other people. I think you'll be battling to get any compensation, but by all means give it a go.

  • Kia Sorento 2008: Unreliability after warranty period

    The brief history you supplied with your e-mail suggests that Kia has attempted to fix the vehicle each time it has broken down, so it would appear that they have met their responsibilities, even if you consider their work to be less than perfect in some instances. I would suggest you continue to pursue Kia over the latest problem and press for at least part payment of the cost of the repairs. Just because Kia's warranty has expired it doesn't mean the car isn't covered at all, as there is still the statutory warranty under our consumer laws. If Kia doesn't come to the party you could take action under consumer laws, beyond that there is always the option of civil action.

  • Kia Sorento 2008: Starter motor replacement due to sand

    Back to Kia and ask them to provide you with a seal that is suitable for use on sand, one that will keep the sand out. Should you prefer not to go that way, which could take some time to resolve and ultimately prove fruitless in any case, I would go to an offroad specialist and explain your problem and ask them to come up with a seal that does the trick.
