In recent months, numerous complaints of recurring powertrain issues have been reported by those who own or lease a 2016 Kia Sorento. Concerns about transmissions that refuse to shift, powertrains that emit loud knocking noises, and the need for premature oil changes continue to arise. Currently, there are eight distinct safety recall campaigns impacting this make and model, one of which involves an increased fire risk when the vehicle is parked. Although some customers have obtained successful repairs, many continue to experience these concerning powertrain issues.
According to the owner of a 2016 Kia Sorento SUV, their vehicle refused to shift out of park mode. The dealership repair cost $1,000, and they were informed that the issue was not part of the transmission, so it was not covered under the warranty. Many other Kia customers listed their concerns about strange and recurring knocking noises originating in the transmission, but few of them obtained clear answers or permanent fixes to these issues.
