Model Years Affected: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009

Average Mileage: 98,787 mi (33,000 mi - 196,450 mi)


After the vehicle has been operated with electrical loads (lights, air conditioning), a weak alternator can cause starting difficulties. In some cases, the original alternator could not sufficiently charge the battery; Kia released a new alternator which can correct this concern.

    Bought it in Illinois. On second battery (purchased) since we bought it. Battery will not charge completely or it dies after the minivan is off for 3 days. Realized that the kia dealership were we bought it had to charged the battery before we had test drive it. They said it happens since it had been sitting their for months. Didn't think nothing of it. We wound up buying a battery 2.5 years later and in less than a year returned it because it wasn't holding the charge. We thought that was the end of the battery drainage... a few months later... maybe 6, it stared to do the same to this new battery. We got a 5 year battery. We can not tell what is going on.
