Mr. Rondo went back to the dealer on Monday for the A/C compressor replacement and to check out the new rattle during mild to heavy acceleration

I'm pleased to report that all the noises are gone and I'm once again the owner of a quiet car!!!

They said the rattle came from stones that had gotten on top of the converter heat shield

To my pleasant surprise, my dealer also mounted the front and rear mud guards I'd purchased at no charge will doing the other work. I can't say enough good things about how the folks at Kia of Lansing have handled this whole thing. Very professional and up front from start to finish

PS - While looking through the recent posts I see someone requested part numbers. I need to run right now, but I'll see about pulling out the receipts and seeing if they listed the actual part numbers

I went through this problem with my 09 Rondo.
Pretty much exactly as you describe.
Intermittent buzzing noise like a florescent light fixture and hard to duplicate.
The long story short is that with mine it was a solenoid in the transmission.
The dealer after having the car for a day and finally duplicating the buzzing noise said that "they all do that to some degree"
But the dealer also stepped up to the plate by saying that the buzzing was quite a bit louder than normal with my Rondo and worked with the local Kia rep to get me a new transmission.
The understanding being that if the noise came back I would probably have to live with it. So 3000 miles later everything is still quiet

For what its worth I had about 19,000 miles on my Rondo when the buzzing became annoying, at least to me .
Also it seemed to be more prevalent when it was hot weather for what ever reason?

Oops...read an earlier post from this summer and see that my Rondo had 21,000 miles on it when they replaced the transmission.

Well looks like I will have to convince the dealer to R&R the transmission to get rid of my buzzing.

Likewise the noise is worse in the "heat"

Great feedback from everyone.

Is your car still "buzz" free? It seems my 2009 2.4 Optima is doing this as well as my friends 09 2.4 Sonata. It is coming from the transmission in both cars.

Still buzzing, just ignore it now, however does have an occasional nasty 2nd to 3rd shift flare. Seems to happen if you accelerate slightly then come off the throttle a bit. Not much luck with the dealer on this one as they never notice it on test drives.
