2007 Kia Rondo Problems
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.
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 Questions
I recently replaced the tensioner idler pulley. Now my serpentine belt is developing a groove about 1/8" from the inside edge. Any idea what it could be rubbing on? Thanks!
Is it a cable or electronic
When I start my car, the blower motor comes on after about 5 seconds. It runs really loud. When I shut my car off, the sound goes away. What is goin on?
2007 Kia Rondo Recalls
The affected Kia models are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation as well as concerns with other electrical systems including: Cruise control, push-button start feature, shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.
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.
The stop lamp switch may fail, affecting many vehicle systems including the brake lights, transmission shift interlock, electronic stability control, and the cruise control. Failure of any of these systems could increase risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch to correct these issues. This recall is to begin on June 17, 2009. The Kia recall number is SC077.

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.

I'm taking it into the shop again tomorrow. It is becoming extremely frustrating. Also, my h...
