A nationwide class action has been filed against Kia Motors for the design defect of the Kia Sorento.  Sorentos are equipped with a Hyundai-manufactured 3.5L 24-valve DOHC V6 engine producing
192 hp (143 kW) at 5500 rpm, and 217 lbft (294 Nm) of torque @ 3,000 rpm.

      At the front of the engine is a pulley which is driven by the engine.  That pulley is attached to the engine by a sprocket and single pin about the size of a sewing needle.  When that pin fails, it then sets of a chain reaction of shredding all the belts attached to the pulley,  including the power steering, battery charging system, and cooling system, all resulting in severe heat buildup, loss of steering control while being driven, loss of power while being driven, hazardous accident potential and  engine failure, and metal debris, resulting in serious and expensive damage to, and/or catastrophic failure of the engine within the Class vehicles (collectively, the front pulley balancer bolt problem).

    This creates a serious safety concern to occupants of the Class vehicles, the occupants of other vehicles, and/or the public in general.
