Hi All,

Only had my Sportage KX2 for just over a month and got a call of the dealer today asking when I could book the car in for a health check.

Had several new cars and never had to have any of them health checked so early.

Something smells a bit fishy to me.

Has anybody else had one of these?

Cheers.

No real "smell". Either your dealer will wait for the car car to come in routinely or they will ask you to bring it in for the following updates (improvements):-

-ECU software upgrade ""“ dual mass fly wheel noise improvement

-Rear trailing arm bolt check

-ECU upgrade ""“ (Electronic Power Steering upgrade (EPS)

I've had my First Edition since September 2010 and I've read a couple of times about ECU upgrades, etc but I've had no contact from the dealer regarding anything (not even the sidesteps I ordered when I purchased the car!).
Should I contact them to ask about any upgrades that are due or do you think they are waiting until it's due it's first service before they do any?Edited by: Griffo

It has been left up to the dealer. There has been no communication from KIA direct to owners. Some dealers will wait for the car to come in and others will use the opportunity to bring their customers into their showroom. The updates are not critical.
