Hi

Can anyone help I have a Sportage xs 2007 when I come to a halt just before stationary I feel a slight jump the best way of describing it it feels li,e when an automatic car changes gear. I have locked the 4 wheel drive and when I realise that and come to a halt I feel something similar any ideas?

Thanks

Lee

Hi, the problem is the tyres, had it on a 2008 model, spent ages trying and testing things,borrowed a set of wheels with new tyres and the noise/movement feeling went. Its all to do with the tread wear of the tyres, should try and rotate every service to keep them even. Hope this helps.

Hi Woohoo


Your absoluteley correct i took the car up to KIA fearing the worse and then a quabble over is it covered under warranty etc but to my surprise the technician said i have had this problem twice in as many months. I had changed the rear tyres about a month ago then the issue started, once tyres changed on the front bingo no more problem which was the 4 wheel driving engaging on coming to a standstill



cheers
