Moral of the story, hitting a deer fixs dash rattles!!!

Mine has a build date of 12/11 and never had a dash rattle.

Default Dash rattle

My dealer fixed it on the second try.Problem was @ the passengers side @ base of windshield .Quote from my work order" Removed Glove box assembly.Added foam shim to leading edge of passengers side crash pad near edge of A pillar assembly.Upon inspection found leading edge of crash pad was intermittently rattling on support frame". They charged Kia Canada 1 hour labour.Dealer had to repeat process a week later as the tape shifted.Hope this helps all with Dashboard rattle.Now if I could just get that passengers seat higher

I know that KIA issued a TSB on the 2012 models for dash rattles but the 2013 are supposted to be fixed.My selling dealer isn't aware of anyone else with this problem.
Seems to me is should be covered by the bumper to bumper warranty. If not, then, I think all of the dash pieces pop out with a bit of finesse . Id pop them out and put some thin layers of rubber strips in places that you see might be causing the rubbing effect of the pieces. Do it in such a way that they cant be seen from the exterior . I did this once with a car I owned...a 1995 Chrysler LeBaron I think it was...and solved it. Trouble with plastic dashes is that there is expansion and contraction and sometimes not good fit n finish. But ive got to say that my 2014 Kia Rio 5 is as tight as can be with no rattles inside or out. But it would drive me crazy too.
