Hi, my name is Anthony R. Smith I have A 06 KIA , the check engine light came on I don't know what to do. help me plese . tell me what to do ,thank you.
2006 Sorento with same headlight problem everyone else has. Kia's response was the NHTSA has not "forced us" to issue a recall. If enough ownners file a complaint maybe they will recall this car. The headlight problem is a real safety issue. Maybe someone has to die in a nighttime crash. At times, both headlights will go out at once.
