Question: P0025 code multiple times

I have had the car since new. About six months ago, I was driving and the check engine light came on. Was on a long road trip (i'm living in Germany, so the US warranty does not apply). After about 200 miles, the light went off. Needless to say, I was pretty upset. Since then, it has come on probably 10 times, and happening more frequently. Since I can't use Kia of Europe for the warranty service on a US bought Kia Borrego, what can I do to fix it. I do have mechanical experience on aircraft, so I think I could handle replacing whatever needs replaces. Thanks for the help.

Any auto repair shop would be able to do the diagnosis, but if you plan on doing more work yourself, investing in the factory service manual is a good idea--you can get them on eBay in the CD version for a decent price.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
