Exclamation Noisy Transmission not covered by KIA Warranty!!!

I just changed the name of this post to update the problem

I have just had my 50K service completed and raised a problem... which I thought was the engine pinking.

ie at low gear/revs when pulling away.. the engine made a rattling noise which seemd like pinking to me.

I took an engineer out and he agreed it sounded like pinking... so yesterday it was booked in.

Seems the problem is not pinking but transmission noise and sounds clattery when accellerating in a high gear ie 2nd or 3rd at approx 10/15 mph.

The dealership told me that it is a known problem(From KIA UK) and there is no problem.

I am reluctant to accept this advice as my warranty has 6 months left.

Anyone else heard of this problem/ noise / any info at all please..

Thanks in advance

Further to the above.... interesting developments.

Spoke to dealership manager today, who was informed regarding the problem.

Apparently as my 05 Sportage is higher than usual mileage(51,000 miles), not many of you will have developed this problem yet.

But the problem is already eveident in the Carens as it shares the same gearbox as the Sportage.... (Is this true????)...... I've looked on the Carens forum and seems a post re drivetrain noise which is the same as mine.

The dealership manager said he could name a few Carens in the area with the same drivetrain noise....most cases seemed to be diesel.

The fault is known by KIA UK and will not be covered by warranty as the performance/usability of the vehicle is not affected!!!!

I rang KIA UK and they confirmed this. I also asked for an extended warranty on my Gearbox as this problem may be a pre cursor to a failure..... NO LUCK There!!!!

So basically KIA UK says, its ok if your car sounds like a bag of spanners they will not cover this 'quote' characteristic under the warranty.

Any ideas anyone????

It certainly seems odd that they recognise a problem, but then won't fix it!!

My advice would be to speak to one of these "Free for the first half hour" solicitors to register that there is a problem with your car and then if it does fail outside warranty and they won't fix it etc. you can then quote the sales of goods act that the car isn't "fit for purpose" and they were informed of the problem but failed to act on it.

If it's a common problem which affects different models, then it's obviously a design fault which they should fix.

Hopefully it won't come to that!!

Good Luck,
Phil.

If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is!

Hi
Is your car manual or automatic. I have an auto and have noticed a clattering sound when driving as you describe. I keep meaning to investigate, but not got round to it yet.

Hi, I see KIA UK are as bad as KIA IRELAND who put everything down to a characteristic of the Sportage, I have a 2006 2.0 Diesel 4WD and have had a lot of different problems and when they can't or indeed wont fix them, its put down as a "characteristic" of the vehicle. I'm in the process of giving mine back...good luck with yours.

i do hear some chattering in my 06 sportage, but i thought it was my engine pinging before i read this thread.
well as per my experience, i can hear such chattering when i drive it without heating the engine up.
but when ive heated it up to normal operating engine temperature before i drive it, i dont hear that sound.
