Sorento 4-cyl

  • miles
2014 Kia sorrento. Consumer writes in regards to the driver seat, accelerator and brake pedal issues. The consumer stated the very large seats were a problem for her, as they were hard to adjust. The distance between the driver's seat and the accelerator pedal, in the most forward and highest seat position, was so great, she was only able to engage the pedals with her toes. The consumer stated she could barely see the hood and couldn't see or distance the front of the vehicle. Therefore, she was forced to use both a manufacturer's vehicle seat cushion and a thick chair cushion underneath that, to be able to raise her body up and closer to the dash. Also, there was and continues to be a subtle, chirping, rhythmic sound coming from the driver's side front tire or wheel well. The service technician stated he did not hear a noise. The traction light illuminated. The consumer discovered the tires had no traction, as they did not grip the road properly. She was informed the tires were inferior, so she was forced to purchase 4 new winter tires at a cost of $ $657.18. Updated 04/21/14.
