2007 Kia Rio Problems

Noise or Vibration When AC Compressor is On

A defective AC compressor clutch assembly can cause excessive noise or vibration when the air conditioning is on. Improved parts are available. Replacing the faulty clutch assembly does not necessitate replacement of the complete AC compressor or evacuation and recharging of the air conditioning system.

Software Update Available Which May Correct Transmission Issues

Reprogramming the transmission control module with the latest Kia transmission software may fix abnormalities in the automatic transmission and erroneous transmission-related Check Engine Light illumination. Software updates are commonly most effective on newer vehicles. Higher mileage vehicles may exhibit a similar symptom caused by a component failure. However, whenever major transmission repairs are performed the transmission software should be checked and updated as necessary.

Transmission Damage Due to Low and/or Incorrect Fluid

Make sure the transmission is filled with Kia-approved transmission fluid and at the correct level. Our technicians tell using incorrect transmission fluid or operating the transmission when it is low on fluid can result in internal transmission damage.

2007 Kia Rio Recalls

The Front Passenger Airbag May Deploy with a Child in the Seat

The front passenger seat occupant sensor mat can experience fatigue cracking. If sufficient cracking occurs, the occupant classification system (OCS) will not be able to detect whether a child passenger is in the seat and the airbag will deploy during a crash. Deployment of the airbag with a child in the seat increases the risk of injury to the child. Dealers will replace the OCS seat sensor mat to correct this concern. The Kia recall number is SC097.

I had a 2007 kia rio 5 spd manual. It was my first car I ever bought. I bought it at 50k and I ended up crashing it on the freeway at 75k. It was the best car, never had a problem with it. I'd only change a few things about it. I would demand power steering and I would have had the windows tinted. But other than that, awsome little car. I swear by kia. I own a kia sportage now, and again love i...

I just got my wife a 13 Lexus 450, she drove it for a while, but lately I catch her drivi...
