I have a 2012 Kia Sorento LX (2,4L) and recently the heater temperature is lower than normal. I originally thought the thermostat might be stuck open but local mechanic said that would not be my problem. I have slightly warm are coming into the car and adjustment to the temperature control do not raise the air temperature beyond warm (not hot or very warm) From the mid point of the temperature control and lower the temp decreases from warm to cold but raising the temp control above mid point does not increase temperature beyond warm. Anyone else experience this problem?

You didn't say, so I'll ask the most basic question - did you check the coolant level at both the radiator and also the overflow tank?

Aside from these other ideas to check, have you pressed the A/C button on to see if any difference? Yes, even when the heat is on.
