Kia Sportage 2012: Diesel stalling

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Sep 2013

I have forwarded your complaint on to Kia and asked that they have their people look at your car. This is not normal, I reckon it's the dealer that is doing the "Stall Test" and stalling you.

Kia Sportage 2012: Shuddering brake problem

Answered by CarsGuide 12 Jul 2013

I too would be frustrated with the treatment you have received, and I would be questioning the competence of the dealership. From your description I would suspect that there is a faulty ABS sensor or similar in one of the rear wheels and what you are experiencing is the ABS activating. We will forward your complain to Kia and request their assistance.

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Mar 2013

I would say the windscreen is too tight in the opening and is under stress, so when it is hit by something like a stone it tends to crack. I would have the dealer measure the opening when installing the nest windscreen and have Kia check it against the specification.
