Civil Action No. 13-006-ED- MAH

Case Summary

Plaintiffs allege a defect in the design of the crankshaft pulley bolt and balancer in the Class Vehicles, which can cause the front pulley bolt to break and cause damage to other engine components. Plaintiffs also allege that KMA knew of this possibility and failed to disclose it to consumers, and refused to honor the warranty and repair the Class Vehicles. The Court dismissed certain claims, and retained other claims, and the parties now desire to settle the remaining claims as to all Class Members.

    ADMIN – Hi Betsy,

    I don’t believe crankshaft issues are related to fires but you may want to check with the manufacturer.

    I Own a Kia Sorrento 2011 I have had so many plastic parts break, including the outside door handles (I have had alot of cars neveran outside doorhandle) BTW when they break on the back when I have childlock on so my kids do not open doors and when the handle breaks on the outside how do you open the door? I have had to pay and replace the back handles 3 x’s now, and it just broke for a 4th I only have 65K on the car. Never again.
