  1. 2015 Sorento LX upgrade to xenon?

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    I'd highly suggest buying directly from Daniel as they are authentic. Many of the bulbs on eBay are not genuine. Also, the stock headlight housings were explicitly and only designed for the halogen style bulbs. So other types like LED or Xenon retrofits will not work due to their different...
  2. Sorento 2014 real world mileage

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    I get an estimated 26 MPG on the highway at 80mph, cruise control with my 3.3 v6 AWD SX. I also do my oil changes at 7k after having done several oil analysis/TBM reports to dial in a reasonable oil change interval. Around town, I average an estimated 17mpg.
  3. 2015 Sorento LX upgrade to xenon?

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    it would be a complicated and expensive upgrade. You'd require the SX headlamp assemblies, ballasts and then the schematics for so you could then figure out how to integrate the SX light system to be triggered by the LX system. Have you tried replacing your original 1400-lumen bulbs with Osram...
  4. Door locks malfunctioning on 2014 Sorento

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    I purchased five TE Connectivity V23074-A2001-A403 12V Plug-In Micro Automotive Relays to replace the stock Fuji units. I'll be wiring a harness in place of the PCB mounted stock relays and running it external to the IPS case to the compatible TE relay plugs. This will allow for relay...
  5. Door locks malfunctioning on 2014 Sorento

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    I'll be attempting to repair my lock relay issue via that linked DIY article. However, I'm going to work on either replacing the stock mechanical relays with solid-state units and/or extend the PCB connections to outside the case so the relays can be more easily replaced when or if they fail.
  6. 2014 EX V6 Oil Change Interval and Blackstone results

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    No one here is saying or implying to NOT do oil changes. Adjusting the OCI based on oil analysis is the most confident method to assure you're utilizing the oil to its best effect and monitoring the actual metallurgical condition of the engine or other mechanical assemblies (transmission...
  7. 2014 EX V6 Oil Change Interval and Blackstone results

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    I personally wouldn't recommend extending your OCI without establishing a baseline with an initial analysis.
  8. 2014 EX V6 Oil Change Interval and Blackstone results

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    I've been using the Pennzoil Platinum Synthetic in the car since I bought it and is what was tested in both instances. This oil was highly recommended on the Bobistheoilguy forum due to its low cost and good additive package.
  9. 2014 EX V6 Oil Change Interval and Blackstone results

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    Just thought I'd share my Blackstone oil analysis results that I've accumulated after 2 reports since I purchased the car 2 years ago at 45,000 miles and am now at ~65,000 miles. When I bought the car I was doing oil changes every 3,000 miles. I submitted a test sample to Blackstone and it was...
  10. Scan tool?

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    Has anyone used any particular model of scan tool for full PCM control likewise to what the Kia dealer would use to troubleshoot and access functional system menus?
  11. Replace 2015 Radio/Nav with 2016 For Android Auto?

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    I haven't done anything further other than accumulate a Sony 4-channel amp for my front stage, a Sony mono amp for the sub, and a Sony 12" sub. I may leave my stock HU and hook it's speaker output to a single or small pair of speakers to fit under the dash where the factory center speaker would...
  12. Seicane Android Multimedia Unit upgrade

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    If you use the Metra harness adapter then you can solder the factory back-up camera wires and/or BT wire directly into a female RCA so it connects without any additional adapters right to the Seicane unit.
  13. Is this compatible with US Sorento/Aftermarket head unit upgrade

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    check at Seicane.com. Send them a picture of your dash and they'll direct you to the appropriate replacement head unit.
  14. 2015 Sorento - Best LED Replacements

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    Wizard, that's very good information! Thank you!
  15. Replace 2015 Radio/Nav with 2016 For Android Auto?

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    Ah okay, that's cool. Well, now I just need to see some reviews on these units before I consider buying one :)
  16. Replace 2015 Radio/Nav with 2016 For Android Auto?

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    The one you linked and from what I've seen on that site, they don't have English as an OSD language. This one does and has been one I've considered, but I haven't found any user reviews on it...
  17. Replace 2015 Radio/Nav with 2016 For Android Auto?

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    I'm nearly 100% certain it's not possible. Firstly, the fit isn't the same without heavy modification or the use of an aftermarket double-DIN mounting kit and some customized, home-brew mount-to-head unit securing. Secondly, the wiring will almost definitely be completely different along with...
  18. JY Custom GPS Mount

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    good for Pi! I just happened to find this thread while searching for images of cell phone mounts in the Sorento. This mount would be awesome for a Raspberry Pi 3 running a 7" screen :) The accessorizing capabilities could be endless... GPS, media player, cameras, OBDII monitoring, etc. I've...
  19. Wheel Swap? 2014 EX for 2016+ EX?

    2016+ Sorento
    Just wondering if anyone here might be interested in swapping wheels. My 2014 EX wheels for your 2016+ EX wheels. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with mine, I just like 2016+ style better. My tires are also in good shape and were new as of January 2017. If you're interested, PM me. 2014...
  20. Performance Parts??

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    H&R makes lowering springs Luxon makes suspension/handling upgrades: sway bars, strut tower brace and chassis braces - see them on ebay I sorta upgraded my brakes using BrakeMotive's full brake kit. It's just ceramic pads and drilled/slotted factory size rotors. $160 for the full front/rear...
