2007 Kia Rondo Problems

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

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.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The Check Engine Light may erroneously illuminate, signifying a fault in the intake air temperature circuit. If no fault is found in the sensor or wiring, a simple reprogramming of the powertrain control module (PCM) may fix the problem.

2007 Kia Rondo Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., January 13, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The clock spring electrical assembly in the steering column may become damaged over time, resulting in high resistance in the driver's airbag electrical circuit. This could cause illumination of the airbag warning light and/or the driver's airbag may not deploy as designed. Failure of the airbag to properly deploy increases the risk of injury to the driver in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the clock spring contact assembly as necessary to correct this concern. The Kia recall number is SC094.

2007 Kia Rondo Reviews

I got my car in 2007 and love it. The escape stays off and I cant get it to come back on. Suppose to come on when you start your car

My wife bought it used and was assured that the warranty was transferable. It was not. The car hard started and then stopped running for the same reason the 4 cyl version was recalled and Kia refused to help. Over $500 later new fuel pump (ours is 6cyl/ problem same as 4cyl recall) fixed issue. Very poor customer service by dealerships. None were helpful at all. Very poor followthrough with defects that should be recalled. Very poor policy on warranty that by any other manufacturer would have been transferrable through a dealer sale. All in all my wife loves this car. But Kia service and policies actual are crap and will prevent us from buying another Kia. Just crappy Kia dealer and warranty service all around. Never gonna buy another Kia. Gonna strongly recommend against them. They do not retain value and are not backed by good service. Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Chevy, and even Hyundai bend over backwards to provide good warranty, customer, and recall service when there is problems with their vehicles. Shame on Kia...

I've had no complaints except for the fact that windshield wipers on this car are always needing repair. They fail at the worst times. i.e a thunderstorm, on a highway, during a cross country road trip. Or during a flood warning, on a highway. I've had the motor replaced, I have had the wipers replaced. I'm taking it into the shop again tomorrow. It is becoming extremely frustrating. Also, my head lights and brake lights keep burning out.

This is a decent car. Good value for money. My main complaint is the fuel economy. I average 22MPG with about 75% hwy driving.
I "upgraded" from an '06 Toyota Matrix to the 7 seat V6 Rondo. Got to be honest, Toyota service ROCKS, Kia service is mediocre at best. Toyota will wash and vacuum your car when you bring it in with a question, Kia puts a sheet of paper on the floor to protect the mat when you bring it in for major servicing. They also don't seem to be interested in pursuing unspecific problems (like that loud clunking sound from the engine that I brought it in for 3 times). Wouldn't buy a Kia again just because of the service department, but overall the Rondo is a good versatile car (go with the EX V6)
