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.

STEERING

3/20/2015 - LAKE VIEW TERRACE, CA
OUR KIA BORREGO HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS SINCE WE PURCHASED IT. A ROUGH RIDE AND DIFFICULT TO STEER. DOESN'T STAY ALIGNED AND TIRES WEAR EXCESSIVELY. WHEN EVER WE HAD VEHICLE SERVICED DEALERSHIP WOULD SAY"VEHICLE DRIVES AS DESIGNED, OR TIRE PRESSURE OUT OF SPEC, ONCE THEY EVEN HAD THE NERVE TO TELL US THE MANAGER DRIVES ONE AND AGAIN DRIVES AS DESIGNED. FUNNY THING IS THOU ON WORK ORDER THEY WROTE TEST DRIVE. FOUND VEHICLE DRIVES AS DESIGNED. BUT MILEAGE IS THE SAME WHEN BROUGHT IN 'EXACTLY'. WE HAVE HAD TO BUY 2 AND 1/2 FULL SETS OF TIRES. AND STILL VEHICLE IS HARD TO STEER AND ROUGH RIDE TO SAY THE LEAST. IT IS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE TO RIDE IN ,MY 4YR OLD PROTESTS EVERY TIME WE HAVE TO DRIVE ANYWHERE OTHER THEN CORNER MARKET. DOOR ACTUATORS ON FRONT DRIVER SIDE AND PASSENGER SIDE HAVE BROKE 2X. HAD TO WAIT FOR PARTS THEY SAID THEY WOULD CALL AND NEVER DID. INSTEAD WE CALLED TO FIND OUT PARTS HAD BEEN THERE. NOTIFIED DEALERSHIP POWER OUTLETS DO NOT WORK DEALER COULD NOT RESOLVE ISSUE. DRIVER SEAT BELT UNEXPECTEDLY UNLATCHES WHILE DRIVER INTERMITTENTLY. CLEAR COAT FINISH IS PEELING. INSIDE DOOR HANDLES METALLIC PEELING LEAVING SHARP EDGES.WE GET TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM KIA HAD CAR TOWED THERE 2X AND WERE NOT OFFERED RENT-A-CAR EITHER TIME. THIS VEHICLE IS DEFECTIVE AND I'M SURE THEIR ARE MANY MORE WITH THESE SAME ISSUES. HOWEVER KIA MOTORS DOES NOT WANT TO EXCEPT RESPONSIBILITY ON ANY LEVEL. 2 RECALLS ALREADY.I'M HOPING OTHER BORREGO OWNERS WILL MAKE COMPLAINTS IN ORDER TO GET INVESTIGATION OPENED. WE WOULD LIKE KIA MOTORS TO BUY BACK OUR VEHICLE, SO WE CAN PURCHASE SOMETHING OTHER THEN A KIA.

SERVICE BRAKES

3/2/2015 - DUNCAN FALLS , OH
ON THE 23 OF FEBUARY I NOTICED ALL THE LIGHTS ON IN DASH, CHECK ENGINE, ESC, BRAKE LIGHT ECT. WAS NOT ABLE TO PUT THE CAR IN PARK TO SHUT IT OFF. I DID NOTICE WHEN DRIVING, COMING TO A COMPLETE STOP APPLYING THE BRAKE, ALL THE LIGHTS GO OFF EXCEPT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND IT ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT GEAR I WAS IN,THEREFORE I WAS ABLE TO PUT THE CAR INTO PARK AND SHUT DOWN THE ENGINE. MULTIPLE TIMES I HAVE TO UNLOCK THE SHIFT MANUALLY. TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP AND WAS TOLD IT WAS THE ABS MODULE NEEDING REPLACED.. I DONT BELIEVE I SHOULD BE PAYING 2000 FOR A PART THAT I DONT BELIEVE IT NEEDS. I BELIEVE IT IS THE BRAKE LIGHT STOP SWITCH WHICH WAS REPLACED AFTER A RECALL. THIS SHOULD BE AGAIN RECALLED AS A DEFAULT, IF IT IS THE ABS MODULE, THEN IT SHOULD BE RECALLED AS WELL, THIS IS A SAFTY ISSUE AS MUCH AS THIS IS HAPPENING. IM VERY FRUSTRATED WITH ALL WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH TO GET A SOLID ANSWERER . AND WOULD APPRECIATE A REPLY
