You shouldn't have any problems claiming under warranty - it's a well known problem at Kia. I had my KX3 Nav at the dealer on Thursday so that they could take pics of the corrosion to make a warranty claim with Kia and they said they'd already had to replace several others (i.e Kia's and other cars with similar alloys) and it was likely that even the replacements would have to be replaced after next winter! So your 7 years worth of warranty could mean 7 new sets of alloys!Lennyboy said:Hi Everyone, noticed corroding on the alloys wheels on my 5 month old Sportage.
smalls flexs,of white. very disappointing, the car is great, but I chose top spec model because I loved the wheels.
I hope it is covered by the guarentee?? Any help??
Why would they replace one that's unaffected.MaybeKIA said:Not all 5?
They'd replace the unaffected one as it is part of a faulty batch, surely? Newer vehicles seem to have different coating on the wheels, going by comments on here. That suggests an acknowledgement of a fault.keat99 said:Why would they replace one that's unaffected.MaybeKIA said:Not all 5?
So they could put it back in to stock and give it someone esle.?
Sorry to dissapoint, but my past experience tells me that this problem will never be resolved.
The 4 replacements, will require replacing agian next year, and the year after, and again after this.
In fact, have new wheels in October, and you'll be back in March.
And when the 7 years is up, then your'e on your own.
