I have these same issues (sunroof not closing, loud banging noise while moving, and slow motion) on my 2012 Kia Sorento EX. This issue doesn't just apply to 2014 to 2016. I've had this issue for the past three years and just don't use the sunroof anymore out of fear of the glass breaking. This information is great though if I want to one day get into the mechanics and lube the track or change the lift devices. (doubtful, car has a 194000 miles on it). Anyway, just my two sense on the years effected by this issue....very disappointing.Yeah, here it is again for any who started late. Third iteration.
To the recent poster with the dealer with the crazy prices, the TSB specifically states "Do NOT replace the sunroof assembly for this concern."
Not really a positive reply to someone who is thinking of buying a Sorento and wonders whether to get a trim with the sun roof. You do not add anything to this discussion.2018 is just launched. How naive one can be! Stop asking redundant questions and buy one already. You spend so much time lurking here. By now you should have figured out this problem plagued 2016s mostly.
Not sure replying to a post from September 2017 is going to do much, either. The info posted was at least correct. Problem not noted for 2018.Not really a positive reply to someone who is thinking of buying a Sorento and wonders whether to get a trim with the sun roof. You do not add anything to this discussion.
