Did it ever occur to you people (jetech0001 excepted) that althou the term "routine maintainence" was used. And may leave a bad taste in your mouth hearing it and paying for it. A unfortunate life lesson was learned here today.
1)NORMAL adjustment period is yes 5K
2)Extended adjustment period was 12K in some cases to help customers out a bit on the limited 5K NORMAL
3)YOU GOT 36K on a 2011 vech with the 18 inch expensive tires on it.
4)It is MORE then fair to assume you WILL NOT have a leg to stand on if you did 5K rotations (lets see now 36K divided by 5K is 7.2 times) in that 36K.
5)This is NOT a RWD vech. It is a FWD vech. So what planet did you come in from recently to ever not think that normal tire feathering occurs on FRONT TIRES most on a FWD and rotating tires to BACK is the normal at 5K to minimize it for teh life of the tires. But putting rear tirs to front in doing this, DOES NOT MEAN the tires going forward are MORE fathered then the ones coming off FRONT! Theres was a problem WAY BEFORE 36K. Are you that big of a M***N?
So YES it will be ROUTINE MAINTAINANCE! to get the REAR AXLE SHIMMED due to tire feathering at 36K. And on YOUR DIME!
IF you could not take your HOOYA from rotation number 2 at 10K on till only 36K NOW and see TIRE FEATHERING of some sort before 12K and ALL FOUR now are FEATHERED! That is your problem, Not KIA'S.
ASIDE: Yes it is not right a vech leaves factory "OUT OF SPEC" OR once here after shipping on a SHIP and TRUCK and RAILCAR or whatever it
is "OUT OF SPEC". But it happens all too often less so from the first and MORE from the second reason.
I and I am ONLY one person that maybe does this. Make it a point to TAKE IT BACK TO DEALER at 5K and get it put on a rake and checked for BREAK-IN lossening up and settleing of the suspension. IT IS FREE!!!!!!! and if they do it they certify at that time it was DEAD ON in SPEC. If not they FIX IT! to be for FREE! IF say no we do not do that for you then you get them to put that in WRITTING as such DATE/TIME/MILES that it is and sign it. Keep that paper and refer to it RIGHT NOW! at 36K with you ISSUE! of tire feathering and "ROUTINE MAINTAINENCE". YOU got one thing right thou. This whole thread is "UNBELIEVABLE" and "STUPID"!
