Hi all,
I was wondering if Kia dealers do RAC-like vehicle inspection. If they do, does anyone has an idea how much that costs? Secondly, is their inspection service likely to be superior to RAC's considering that they will be inspecting Kia vehicle?
Many thanks,
Solar

@2012vengaman - thank you. @iooi : This is a Ceed that I bought 6 months ago from a car supermarket (Cazoo) and has been serviced last week by my local dealer. The car has rattling issues, so was thinking of getting the car checked either by my local Kia dealer or via RAC, and plan to ask Cazoo to look into this (they are now anyway passing things to the dealer as the car is still under warranty per them- it is a 19 reg car). Based on @2012vengaman's point, I see a conflict of interest with the Kia dealer- he would be diagnosing the issues and addressing them (if under warranty) so they might not want to diagnose correctly. During the service, I highlighted the problem but the dealer said that they can't let me travel with the technician, so it could be looked only June when lockdown is relaxed.

Thanks @iooi , The first service has been done by a VAT registered independent garage and I have retained the receipt showing correct part numbers. The second service has been done last week by my local Kia dealer- and the body inspection has been done by them as well.
There are 3 rattle/squeaks- 1. Rattle from passenger side window- this goes away when I open the window. 2. Rattle/squeak from the boot area 3) Squeaks from the front of driver area . 2 and 3 are observed on bumpy, uneven road and are pronounced on sunny/warm day. I suspect it is something to do with suspension.
I have checked everything- removed all items and drove the car, for #3, I was suspecting front wiper blades, so have removed them and tested, still that squeaks come.
Many thanks,
Solar
