Kia Sorento Steering
Hello, My 2005 kia sorento 63,000 miles command shaft that ties into stearing wheel with 2 bolts came loose and one bolt fell off and the other is just hanging there, caused my family to crash into a guard rail going 60mph on I-5. I can spin steering wheel and tires will not move. Has anyone heard of anything like this? Does anyone have any ideas on what I should do, is kia to blame? Im trying to get work history of car but kia will not release to me. Thanks
My transmission quit working properly today as well. I did not know there was a recall but I will be visiting my dealer today. I have also had the problem with the crankshaft pulley bolt being sheared off TWICE. I lost power steering when this happened. I am just thankful I was not on the freeway as I had my child in the car. I repaired all the issues so far on my own dime but this transmission and drive shaft problem will be fixed by Kia.
I am sorry about your accident. I wish you and your family a speedy recovery.
Your SUV shouldn't pull or require constant pressure to keep it going straight and the effect should be less noticeable on freeways. In fact, it should tend to drift to the left in the left lane of an Interstate. And it shouldn't drift in a flat parking lot.
You could try another Sorento and see if it has a similar drift.
Besides the alignment, other things to check would be the tire pressure or a dragging brake.
Different rig but this link covers the same ground.
I never X rotate my tires since I don't have enough jacks and stands, but maybe I should start. Well, my Nokians on the wagon are directional tires and they shouldn't be rotated in an X anyway.
