2004 Kia Sorento EX from North America - Comments

I own a 2004 KIA Sorento EX and I bought it new. I have had to replace the driver's side headlamp twice and the passenger side headlamp once. That's a headlamp every year so far. What's wrong with this picture!

We have an '04 Sorento. 3 headlights and both tail-lights have burnt out twice. This seems to be unreasonable.

Replace them with HID lights, they seem to last longer and are brighter then the cheap bulbs. NOTE they require professional installation..

I purchased a used 2006 Sorento and have replaced headlight lense twice on both sides and now the third one has shot. I have only had the car two years and they are a pain to change,

For the HID comment: I installed 6K color HIDS on mine and only took 30 minutes to install, it was not too hard. What a difference it makes in lighting. Make sure to adjust your headlight level as the HID changes the degree's in lighting, I had to adjust them lower because it seemed like they were highbeams.

I own a 2003 Kia Sorento. I installed HIDs for the H7 6k. My passenger one is flickering and not as bright as the drivers side, any ideas?

I own a 2006 Sorento and have changed both front headlights 6 times, both front fog lights two times and both rear tail lights. I need to buy stock in Sylvania!

I bought a 2004 Kia Sorento EX in February 2004. After two years I started to have problems with the SUV with the headlights, brake lights and tail lights. I had to replace them every 3 years, every time I get pulled over and a warning.

Now the SUV is 6 years old I had to sink $1700 into it since the throttle positioning sensor failed and affected the other sensors. Six lights: two headlights, two brake lights, two tail lights & the back brakes had to be replaced, plus 4 tires were worn.

I drove to Ohio for 9 months to take care of my sister who got out of a hospital from back surgery. Now I am back home in Key West, Fl (my sister is doing great), I have to replace the head lights and tail lights again after a year.

So no more Kias for me. I'll go with a GMC, Ford or Chevy.
