Hi all,

Have an XS 4x4 which I bought new a year ago.
Have just noticed that the two hinges on the roof for the rear tailgate are discoloured.
The hinges are black but it would appear that the outer coating has pealed exposing white metal underneath. The exposure is about the size of a thumb nail each.

Has anyone had anything similar?

Thanks.

Yes,


I have something similar on my 08 XE - I think the hinge covers are painted aluminium - I'm ignoring it unless it gets worse.

Thanks Blow-in.

Was passing Kia dealer today and went in, and they stated that it was not an unknown problem.
Stated that they would order new hinges and fit under the warranty.
May be worth getting yours replaced asap.

Ok, so this is two years after you post, but I had the same problem with the hinges on my 2009 (59) Titan. Kia changed them under warranty no questions asked.
