Just wondered - would the replacement of 1 or both of these be covered under the warranty? Car has done 96k so getting near the end of warranty period.

hi, just for interest why do you need to change them. I have about 2 months of my 7 years warranty left and would check that I don't have the same problem, cheers.

BTW, mine are self levelling

Slightly old thread but just to say that I've just had the rear shocks replaced on mine at 80k.  Not covered by warranty and at £320 a piece plus fitting not nice.  Reason for replacement was that the rear end was starting to skip around and the tyres were wearing peculiarly (like a 50 piece the mechanic said), producing an oscillation from the rear end.  Including tyres and fitting a bill of £1200!!

More likely just to be a tyre problem than shocks. What make of tyre were they?
Simplicate and add lightness.
Sorento KX2
Daihatsu Sirion Centenary
2010 Swift Challenger 620
Citroen Nemo Van
and occasionally Ford GT40, AC Aceca and Shelby Daytona Cobra .

Was definitely the shocks which caused the issue with the tyres.  Own trusted mechanic diagnosed/sorted it, hence not being main agent prices....

Kia Australia replaced the rear self levelling shocks in my 2010 CRDi at 98000ks and 2 weeks inside the warranty expiry. I thought I would have to pay but my local agent applied and the job was approved. The rear of the car was a bit floaty but it had pulled a pretty heavy camper around in it's time. I thought it was very smart PR by Kia as I have made a point of telling everyone I meet. cheers - Davo Thumbs Up
