U need to have a auto body shop check it out. They can determine how far out of spec it is, and what is required to fix it, as they deal with car collision work every day. Good luck!!

2007 Kia Sorrento rocks left to right on highway, 60-75mph?

Hi Bryan:
Had similar issues with a dodge pickup. Drove me crazy. Had alignment done twice. Eventually put on new front tires and problem went away. Completely.
My advice?????
- Check tire pressures.
- Jack vehicle up and put on jack stands. Inspect all suspension components for loose or worn bushings, ball joints, linkages.
- Exchange tires from rear to front and front to rear.
- Test drive.
- If problem is still there, have alignment checked.
Hope this helps.

2007 Kia Optima front vents quit blowing air

If you mean the blower motor is not working at times, it can be the motor, a resistor, or the switch on the dash. Could also be a bad connection in the wiring harness.
When the blower won't work, a mechanic would check for power and ground at the motor.

Owner's guide

Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor. Check the air in your tires.

You should be able to get a manual from the dealer.

Where is the OIL FILTER for the 2004 Kia Optima?

For the 2001 kia optima I have found the oil filter between the front passenger side tire and the engine. You can see it if you turn the wheels all the way to the left, although it helps if the filter cover is a bright color. To change it I had to remove the tire. I hope this helps.

Sun visors flop down and obsruct the view on my 2007 kia optima

Both of my visors broke -- first the one right after purchasing (had dealership repair) then the other (still under warantee, so dealership repaired). The lady said the 2007 Optimas had a "bad batch" of visors and many needed to be replaced. Fine. Now the driver's side broke again. It just needs to be replaced. I love the Kia, hate the visors. Not a bad payoff for the reasonable price. So far, the only thing that has broken.

KIA: Optima - AirBag warning light stays on...

I had the same problem on our 2003 sedona. Turned out one of the wires in the driver's seat belt is infamous for going bad and the repair is usually replacing the seat belt. I would have thought they would have cured that by now.
