2011 Kia Sorento Recalls
The automatic transmission shift lever may be able to move out of the park position without using the brake pedal, resulting in the possibility of the vehicle coming out of park and rolling unexpectedly.
Kia is recalling these vehicles because the stop light switch can fail resulting in loss of brake light operation and may experience other electrical concerns.
A whirring or whining noise may develop from the transmission. This could lead to failure of the right intermediate drive shaft, which can cause a loss of engine power to the drive wheels, increasing the risk of a crash.
The brake calipers that slow the rear wheels of the vehicle may not be manufactured properly and as a result may leak. This could cause loss or weakening of brake function.
An electrical short circuit in the front and/or rear door could result in an electrical fire.
