Default KIA Forte Recalls

I just thought I'd let everyone know that there are a few recalls on the forte. Next time you go to your dealership (8000k maintenance) they will check your wheel bearings and update your cars software.

My dealer was more than happy to take a listen to the wheel bearings for me and found that mine are currently fine. They did update my computer during the process though.

it's not a recall. it's more of a tsb and it's only relates to fortes that have to ride in a container on a train to the middle of the US. this is not really meant for customers to be concerned with because it's meant to be caught on PDIs before the vehicle even hits the lot. now if the tech that does the pdi doesn't test drive it on a 10 mile road test like kia requires them to do, then there's a chance that the customer may get one of these cars with the problem. the affected states are AR, CO, IA, LA, IN, KS, KY, LA, MI, MN, MO, MT, ND, NE, NM, OH, OK, SD, WI, TX, and UT. this also applies to the soul as well.

basically, if you aren't close to a seaport in canada or the us where the cars have to be hauled by rail to get to the destination instead of a shorter distance trip by truck, this pitstop article would apply to your car but should be caught at the time of the pdi if the tech does his job the way he's supposed to.

My bearings were replaced. All is well now. The car runs smoothly now. I also had to get my airbag sensor replaced, not sure why but at about 4000k the airbag light came on solid while i was on the highway. Took it to the dealership and they had to order a new sensor and replace it.

Default Rear wheel sensor

I figure i'll add my issues to date, it's a forte ex,

parking break needed adjusting (it only engaged on the last position, the physically possibly last position it could be in, otherwise it would roll) it was a relatively quick adjustment.

But my ABS and ECS off lights came on for a while( about a day) then turn off, and repeat this cycle a couple of times, I took it in and they found the right rear wheel speed sensor is shot, They ordered the part and I've an appointment Monday to replace it.

otherwise no issues

Question

Could you be a bit more precise about these 2 "recalls"
one is for wheel bearings and the second one for?
My SX just turn 4000K and so far no issues.

As Kiaracer pointed out above, these are TSBs that the dealer would have taken care of before you took ownership of your car -- if your car was affected by them.
