Problems with the Structure

The build of the 2022 Kia Sorento isn’t well-thought-out. Instead, it’s clear that Kia missed some valuable aspects of this SUV.

One KBB review states, “Also missing are hood struts -you have to use a manual prop to hold the hood open, despite hood struts being on Sorentos in other markets. Who knows, maybe they had to trim weight for mileage regulations.”

How could anyone expect that this Kia would be well-built? After all, there have been class-action lawsuits on previous Sorento models because the engines would spontaneously combust. If the automaker hasn’t been able to put a reliable engine under the hood, how could it get the rest of the build right? Maybe the company didn’t make it easy to get under the hood because it doesn’t want customers to see how defective the parts actually are that are found there.

Problems with the Visibility

Seeing clearly out of any vehicle should be a top priority. However, the defects with the auto glass are making it difficult for customers to see out of the Sorento.

Here’s one NHTSA complaint worth reading. “My vehicle (2022 Kia Sorento) was purchased 11/08/21. It only has 1777 miles at this exact time. My windshield started cracking on my driver’s side from the sunroof down. This is ridiculous for a vehicle so new. I’ve read this is a chronic issue with the Tellurides. Kia refuses to do anything about it.”

The automaker hasn’t issued any communications about the auto glass, mainly because it doesn’t want to be held liable. However, when someone analyzes the other communications, it becomes clear that this automaker shouldn’t be allowed to create a Matchbox car, let alone one that is relied on for family transportation. With all of the defects regarding the engine, powertrain, fuel system, electrical system and steering, it’s obvious that this company can’t be trusted. And, all of these defects are problems that Kia is talking about, so they aren’t made up stories from disgruntled drivers. It’s time for Kia to hang up its hat and file bankruptcy like it was going to before Hyundai rescued it. All of the defects have the potential to ruin the company once and for all.
