I've had a lot of problems with my Kia Sorento 2.5 manual diesel XS bought new September 2004. The second time I towed a caravan in it the sensor to the transmission failed and we had to be taken to our local dealer 150 miles away on a pick up truck. The local dealer couldn't fix it within the next week which is when we had to take the caravan home. Kia assist don't provide cars with towbars, so no help there. Since then the car continues to make a loud clunking noise when reserving into/driving out of parking spaces with a hard steering lock on, exactly the same as it did before the breakdown. It's been in 5 times since then to have the problem fixed which has involved replacing the transmission box, packing the elbow joint with grease, and nothing has worked. I'm scared to death to use this to tow my caravan again.
