2021 Kia Sorento SX Prestige - X-Line (a mouth full)
Yo moderator or kia-furms.com ... I started this thread and get updates on lots of threads but not this one. Strange!
Here’s a new annoyance I just discovered. The door locks.
I was waking by my car in the driveway and noticed that my doors were unlocked (folding mirrors weren’t folded in. I opened the door and pressed the lock button, but it wouldn’t lock. I didn’t have my key fob on me, so I had to go into the house, get the fob and lock the door with the button.
Question: is that some stupid “safety measure” to ensure keys aren’t locked in the car? The door lock buttons work when the car is on, but no other time. Or is there a setting somewhere that would let me lock the car with the inside lock button?
Weird thing is if I get in the car with or without the key fob in my pocket and shut the door, the interior door lock will work just fine. Everyone I’ve spoken to with different vehicles (Toyota, Hyundai, etc) with smart keys - the interior lock button functions as expected. Open the door, press the interior lock button, shut the door - car is locked.im sure it’s designed to not be able to lock without the keyfob on the outside of the car. You can’t really lock yourself in - the keyfob won’t let you.
I had to click "unfollow" first. Between stating the thread and recent reply and unfollowing and following again ... I'll imagine I'll start getting notifications again. Fingers crossed.
What other stupid things? I know it sounds like I am trying to be a smartass but I am not actually. I am curious as to what else. I know the wiper thing is a pain in the ass for sure.^ you can. You just have to run a 7-step process. Should be a sticker on your windshield, upper left corner. this car just has so many stupid things that’s built into its design im really starting to actually hate it. That’s on top of the decontenting.
Let’s see…What other stupid things? I know it sounds like I am trying to be a smartass but I am not actually. I am curious as to what else. I know the wiper thing is a pain in the ass for sure.
Wow.well with Ida going on in the US, there’s a lot of flooding. I thought my X line with the 1 inch additional height could get through this amount of water. It didn’t. it stalled after a few minutes. A freakin Rav4 drove by me effortlessly.
Strange, since the air intake is up near the headlight. What ended up happening? Did it eventually start and drive normally?I think I got too much water in there (I’m not trying to be funny, I mean other cars drovd through it as well and made it). I’m just salty about this car. Along with all the other annoyances, last night really topped it. I guess it’s not as adventurous as it’s advertised. I followed a trail of other SUVs going into my street. You drive, it splashes on either side, but at no time did it ever reach even the top of the wheel. When I got to the top of the entrance into my complex (that’s why you see an incline) it ran out of juice. When I got out of the car only to find the water was half calf deep, about 10 inches, I was livid. All the other cars had to drive around me.
