Common Kia questions resolved on JustAnswer


JustAnswer has answered questions about Kia drive shafts, error codes and failure to start. The 2012 Kia Sorento, 2011 Optima and 2013 Optima have had their share of engine failures at relatively low mileage.


Kia has had repeated brake light switch problems. In December 2017, the company issued a recall on 2012-14 Forte brake light switches, affecting some 134,400 vehicles. It also issued brake light switch recalls in 2013, and again in 2015 for brake light switches in its SUVs. None of these has resulted in an accident.


If you need to discuss your Kia’s reliability or problems with an Expert on JustAnswer, have the following information ready:


  • Model and year
  • Description of the problem and whether there has been any worsening of the symptoms
  • What you’ve already done to try to resolve the problem.

The Experts at JustAnswer are specialists in Kia and other Korean cars, so your problem can be quickly resolved.
