First fill out a profile..im suprise no one's beat me to that one yet. if you are in the u.s., sorento's dont have front liscense plate brackets. mounting is designed into the front of the bumper, there should be some dimples to line up to the holes in your liscense plate, liscense plate screws right into the cover. as far as the trans issue i havent seen one come through my dealership with this issue. are there any service indicators/trouble lights on in the dash? this could be something as simple as a programming reflash/update. good luck and enjoy the sorento. kps

As a minor item, my state requires a front license plate. My Sorento came with no front plate bracket and am told Kia has no part nuber for one. Now looking to buy one that works for my sorie.
