Don't know if anybody as had this problem, but it may be one to look out for.

I keep my car parked on the drive all of the time (Kids rubbish in the garage), the past couple of mornings, with the tempreture being down to as low as -4 I have noticed that the inside of the glass roof front and back as been thick with a build up of ice, and I mean as thick as the outside, obviously as the vehicle warms I have a built in shower ( not an optional extra I paid for ).

Took it to the dealers who say that the sunroof requires adjustment, they want to keep it for two days so they can park it on their forecourt overnight and see if it is ok the next morning.

This is the third problem I have had with the car, (1) Voice recognition system did not work from new. (2) Slight tear in leather seat, and now this one, only done 550 miles hope it's not a sign of things to come, still should get it sorted within the seven years.

Despite all this I still love driving the car.

Will update hopefully with a happy conclusion

Sounds like a sealing problem somewhere. Haven't left a window just slightly open by chance?


Not a problem I'm likely to experience here at the moment -- nearly 40C, northerly wind adding to the hayfever discomfort and AC getting a thorough workout.

Lucky you imay, but you know what they say "what comes around goes around".

All windows tightly shut. lets hope they sort it for me as they also seem to think it's a seal problem with the sunroof.

Ha ha! I know where imay is coming from. We've just got back from Oz.

The weather was nice but we only had a Hyundai to drive though

You haven't left anything wet in the car in the recent past have you? I can't see how the insides of both sunroofs could frost up unless there was a lot of moisture in the car.

Do you normally run with the aircon on?

I have the same problem. My screen gets wet through on the inside when its been parked up. Its like going back to the old days of my Mk1 Escort! I had to defrost it on the inside and outside the other morning ending up with a puddle on the dash.

We are not alone.......see previous posts..... http://www.kiaownersclub.co.uk/forum/topic5292.html

Have not left anything wet or damp in the car, the aircon / climate control is left on permantly set at 21C or a little higher at the moment.

Have also noticed that the front screen gets quite wet as well.

I see I posted in that other thread that we had had some misting. However, it hasn't been a problem since.

I did have a similar problem on a previous car. I couldn't work out where the water was coming from but, by chance, I swapped cars with a colleague one weekend. When we swapped back on Monday he asked me about the misting and said that he reckoned a sunroof drain tube had come adrift.

He was right, water was running down the A pillar and into the footwell making the felt under the carpet soggy. The carpet didn't feel wet because it had a rubber backing.
