One or both head light bulbs may burn out prematurely requiring replacement. There have also been reports of other bulbs burning out often as well.
A faulty door latch assembly may cause one or both front doors to be difficult to open. Replacing the worn latch will commonly correct this problem.
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 brake light switch may fail, resulting in the loss of brake light operation. Dealers will replace the brake light switch free of charge to resolve the concern.
The accelerator pedal may bend and fracture, making it difficult to accelerate the vehicle. Dealers will add a supporting rubber underneath the pedal stopper free of charge to resolve the problem.
An electrical resistor is contained in the cooling fan electrical control system. This resistor can overheat and/or melt, increasing the chance of an electrical fire. Dealers will replace the cooling fan resistor and multi-fuse unit. Vehicles with a 1,8L engine will also have the engine control module software updated.
The headlights are the only issue, so far. Can't see at all on regular beam. Almost seems like riding around with parking lights. I'm constantly using the brights until I can get this fixed.
I purchased a 2012 Kia Sorento. I do love the car. The exception is the headlights. The dim lights are sooooooo bad!! The high beams should be the low beams. I drive to work at night and have a hard time when other cars are in the opposite lane. I guess I have to pay extra to purchase better lights. I am not happy about this!
