Airbag mix-up means it's curtains for right-hook cars
27 April 2007

Kia is recalling all UK right-hand drive facelifted Sorentos, after a mix-up with the airbag wiring.Because the wiring has simply been transposed, an impact on the left of the car would result in the airbags on the right-hand side of the vehicle going off, and vice versa.Only vehicles built between 4 May 2006 and 28 March 2007 are affected; a total of 1561 cars.

Our Verdict

Kia Sorento 2010-2014

An almost class-leading family 4x4, if a little pricey given its workmanlike flavour
