ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

2/17/2016 - CONNEAUTVILLE, PA
THIS WILL BE THE SECOND TIME AN INCIDENT OF THIS NATURE OCCURRED. WE HAVE OWNED THIS VEHICLE FOR LESS THAN 2 YEARS. BOTH TIMES, WHILE DRIVING, MULTIPLE LIGHTS INCLUDING ABS, ESC OFF, EMERGENCY BRAKES, AND DOWNHILL BRAKING ASSIST COME ON. MILEAGE, GEAR, AND SPEEDOMETER STOP WORKING SO YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT SPEED YOU ARE TRAVELING SUDDENLY. VEHICLE SPEEDS WERE AT ABOUT 40 AND 45 MPH ON CLEAR ROADS. ONCE THE VEHICLE IS STOPPED, YOU CAN ONLY SHIFT TO NEUTRAL GEAR OR DRIVE AND THE KEY CAN NOT BE REMOVED FROM THE IGNITION, ALTHOUGH THE ENGINE CAN BE TURNED OFF. THE BRAKES APPEAR TO CONTINUE WORKING, ALTHOUGH BOTH TIMES, I WAS ABLE TO SLOW THE VEHICLE SIGNIFICANTLY ONCE I NOTICED ALL OF THE LIGHTS ON AND LACK OF SPEEDOMETER. THERE IS NO WAY TO REVERSE THE VEHICLE ONCE THIS OCCURS. AFTER THE FIRST TIME THIS OCCURRED, WE WERE TOLD IT WAS THE ABS MODULE. KIA SERVICE WAS UNABLE TO DIAGNOSE THE LIGHT CODES AND HAD TO WORK DIRECTLY WITH KIA OVER A PERIOD OF SEVERAL DAYS TO DIAGNOSE THE VEHICLE THE FIRST TIME THIS OCCURRED. IT WAS REPLACED 1 YEAR AND 20 DAYS AGO BY A KIA DEALERSHIP AND FAILED AGAIN TODAY. KIA SERVICE IS NOT ABLE TO TELL US IF THE ABS MODULE SHOULD FAIL REPEATEDLY OR WHAT WOULD CAUSE IT TO FAIL REPEATEDLY.

SEAT BELTS

12/29/2015 - THE COLONY, TX
DRIVER'S SEAT BELT RANDOMLY DISCHARGES AND DISCONNECTS. WE BEGAN TO BE ABLE TO FEEL THE DIFFERENCE WHEN PUTTING IT ON WHEN IT WOULD LATCH VS WHEN IT WOULDN'T PROPERLY AND SECURELY LATCH. SOMETIMES IT WOULD TAKE 3-5 ATTEMPTS TO MAKE THE BELT FEEL SECURE. OFTEN TIMES, IT WOULD LATER UNLATCH AND COMPLETELY DISCONNECT. THIS HAPPENED RANDOMLY; AT STOP LIGHTS, PARKING LOTS, ON THE HIGHWAY, ETC. IT WOULD ALSO DISCHARGE AND DISCONNECT IF TUGGED ON. FOR EXAMPLE, LEANING FROM DRIVER'S SIDE OVER TO PASSENGER'S SIDE TO REACH SOMETHING.

UNKNOWN OR OTHER

8/22/2015 - ELMWOOD PK., IL
THE PART IN QUESTION IS GOOD YEAR TIRE WRANGLER SR- A P265/60R18 (M&S) DOT # M7C4 EXWR 4913. WHILE TRAVELING AT 55MPH ON THE EXPRESSWAY THE TPMS LIGHT CAME ON. I WAS ABLE TO MAKE TO A DEALERSHIP FOR REPAIRS. UPON INVESTIGATION FROM THE DEALERSHIP THE TIRE IN QUESTION COULD NOT BE FIXED SO IT WAS REPLACED. THE TIRE LOOKS TO HAVE SPLIT BETWEEN THE TREADS NOT CAUSED BY A ROAD HAZARD. I'M CONCERNED IF THIS IS A POSSIBLE DEFECT IN THE TIRE. I DO HAVE 4 TIRE OF THAT KIND ON MY VECHILE. I DO HAVE THE TIRE IN QUESTION IN MY POSSESSION.
