 Description of the problemPassenger rear door will not open from the inside or outside no matter what i try. I couldn't get my child out, had to crawl through car to do this. The child safety lock is engaged but does not explain being unable to open from the outside. I'm going to the dealer to get it taken care of tomorrow. But this is not covered under my powertrain warrantee. It should be a no brainer that this is a recall item. I've seen other's comments and there is no way i saved up my money to spend it on a repetitive $400 repair as i have seen others do. I have a five year old and another one on the way this august. I am livid because frankly i feel like driving my beater car is safer than driving the sorento. But i worked my butt off to be able to afford the sorento because i thought it would be safer. I was so wrong.
