RE: Recall for the infamous butterfly screws

Called the service department to schedule an appointment and was told there is no recall. Told her to go to their tech web page and put in the number code I gave her and it will come up with it. She asked me were I got the info and told her from here. She said not all web sites are truthfull, told her this web site knows more about the sorento then all of the dealers put together and then some. Eyebrow She did not want to talk about that again. So I was the first to call about it and it goes in on the 25th.

I wonder if she thinks KIA's own site is truthful... that's where the info originally comes from. We are just an extremely efficient means of info distribution. Give 'em hell people.

RE: Recall for the infamous butterfly screws

It's sad, but true! My dealer only got the official Kia dealer computer set up early this year despite being a Kia only dealer for some time (I'm on my second Sorie from them) ........... have to wonder how many others out there have no connection to Kia's info?

Sorento 3.5 Recall

New camp. out to address the throttle screws that get ingested into the engine and causing all the engine damage. Camp. # is KT2008052101
Thats for 2003 thru 2005 sorento with 3.5 engine. Dont expect any dicount on replaceing the spark plugs while they have the upper end torn down. My dealer in Columbus Georgia still wanted $225.00 to replace plugs. Even the general manger would not help out. Talked to him about it and he ended up hanging up on me!!! Sorry Ass Dealer!!!!

Called my dealer today ... due to a power outage his computers are down so he can't call up anything, but he didn't recognize the above campaign number as even being legitimate. He DID recognize the three digit campaign number I read off the original PDF earlier in this thread as a legitimate one, but still couldn't call up any info on it.

The good news ... He didn't think there'd be any major issue in merging a spark plug change with the recall, though he stated there'd be a charge for the labor involved to actually replace the plugs. I told him I couldn't imagine that being significant since the act of pulling and replacing six plugs couldn't take more than ten to fifteen minutes max... We'll see what happens when he calls back after the computers go online again.

Mine goes in next week while we're at DinseyWorld. New Fuel sending unit, this recall, and I might have those plugs done too.

RE: Recall for the infamous butterfly screws

Hey Planecrazy, which dealer do you take your Sorie to? I'm thinking about combining the recall campaign and the spark plug maintenance as well. I'm just about to roll over 60k. The guys at Schaumburg Kia usually treat me right.
