2011 KIA Sorento
2011 KIA Sorento
After taking a year off from the lineup for a complete redesign, the Kia Sorento is again part of the lineup. In its new incarnation, it shares the unibody constructed structure with the Hyundai Santa Fe. The new, sleeker, model replaces the previous body on frame design. It has grown almost 4 inches overall, despite the fact that it's wheelbase has been shortened by .3 inches. This newfound space has made a pleasant increase in interior volume.

The improvements in the new Sorento don't end there. It has gone on a diet and the reduced weight when compared to the earlier models help the 4 cylinder engine, which makes 175 horsepower, feel like a more viable option, although he Sorento offers a much more powerful option as well in the form of a 276 HP 3.5 liter V-6. Regardless of which engine is chosen, they will be mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission.

While front wheel drive is standard, there is an option for all wheel drive. Trim levels to choose from on the Sorento are the LX, EX, and SX.

Summary
Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 Rondo, model year 2007-2011 Sedona, Sorento and Sportage, model year 2010-2011 Soul, model year 2008-2011 Optima, model year 2010 Forte, model year 2007-2009 Amanti, and model year 2009 Borrego vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Kia recalled 623,658 model year 2007-2010 Rondo and Sportage, model year 2007-2011 Sorento, model year 2007 Sedona, model year 2010-2011 Soul, and model year 2011 Optima vehicles. In September 2013, Kia informed the agency that it was adding an additional 356,719 vehicles to this campaign. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 980,377. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.
Consequences
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of PARK without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Kia will send an interim notification to owners in May 2013. When parts are available, owners will receive a second notification and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's recall campaign number is SC098.
