Hi

Belatedly posting my first message here 6 months into my ownership of a new Kia Cee'd GT-Line in Dark Gun Metal

I was looking for my first 5 door vehicle as continually contorting myself in order to get my 4 year old daughter into the back of my 3 door Seat Ibiza had finally taken it's toll!  The Cee'd appealed as it's space in the back in particular was very generous, more so than many larger cars in its category and even the smaller SUV type vehicles I'd been considering.  Plus the availability of the 1.0 T-GDi in the GT-Line range seemed like a worthwhile upgrade to what seems a reliable car.  My first new car lasted 14 years and I'm hopeful this one will rival that.

So far mechanically a very good drive but I am currently running into difficulties with the much lauded 7 year warranty with my local dealership (WLMG High Wycombe).  More of that to come soon on the relevant forum, safe to say I'm not getting the solution focused approach I'd expect on something I've invested £18-20K on!

Welcome Jeremy.

If you think your dealer is being unreasonable or not sorting things out you should ring the Kia UK Customer Relations phone line or post in their forum on this site and ask them to intervene!

Thanks!

Unfortunately I've already tried the Kia Customer Services route (over email) without a satisfactory conclusion so I'll test the waters in the Cee'd forum to see to what (if any) degree I'm being unreasonable, it's a significant yet intermittent, cabin noise issue.
