Heres a worry, I own a 2006 diesel ex, UK spec, and am very pleased so far.
When i've been for a bit of a work out, like pushed the car a bit hard, I get a burning rubber smell, the dealer thought it might be the drive belts bedding , but it still does it occassionally afer 25 K Miles.
I have just removed the spare wheel from the boot, (trunk) and have nearly burnt my hands. I have found that the bottom of the boot is at least 45 Deg C, matbe hotter, caused by the silencer, (muffler) under the boot.
Has anybody else had this problem??
Safety point I store a few things here, de-icer, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, I have now removed the aerosol cans just in case.
I will be ringing Kia UK tomorrow to see if there is a problem, watch this space.
