After driving for about 5 miles on the highway I will get a swishing water sound from below my passenger side dash when I come to a stop. There is no noise when cruising past 30MPH, but it may be getting masked by road noise.
Everything I'm reading on the Internet points to air pockets in the cooling system - in this case the heater core. I brought my car into the dealer to have the cooling system "burped" and was told that I was exaggerating the noise and I shouldn't be bothered by it! They told me that KIA would not pay for this service unless the noise got worse. This noise is driving me insane.
Has this type of problem ever happened to you?
Any suggestions on where to go from here?
Should I just do the procedure laid out in the Tech Manual on KGIS? The car is only 6 weeks old and I would think KIA should be responsible for this...
I have the same noise at the same place intermittently. Talked to useless dealer and same pathetic answer not to worry..
I wonder what kind of training these dealers get to deal with warranty related problems..
Never admitting and no serious effort to try to diagnose problem. Same copybook sentences to get away with it
I have three genuine problems (excluding this water noise) since I took the delivery in April and despite my multiple trips no fruitful outcome yet.
Totally disappointed by KIA customer handling and planning to log an official complain.
