    Thought maybe I missed something and was looking for someone to tell me I was mistaken, thanks for the hard thought out response jeepgrady. I will amend my original post and take out the help part.

    My wife and I share driving our present Kia Forte5 SX alot and the option of memory seats has been a huge help, looking at the specs for the new 2017 Sportage with 10 way seats there is no button for memory seats. I can't imagine upgrading the vehicle as much as they have for 2017 and making...

    Kia Forte/Cerato (TD) and Koup Discussion Forum
    Same performance here, just had the dealer do the 1500 mile service this weekend. They won't let me go to full synthetic until the next service, between then I will be adding K&N's new drop in air filter which I have put in every vehicle. Really wish they offered a better stereo or an upgrade...
  6. 2015 Kia Forte 5 SX

    Kia Forte/Cerato (TD) and Koup Discussion Forum
    Just picked up our new 2015 Forte 5 SX and I will have to say I am impressed, we took the leap from a 2011 Sorento EX. We went looking at purchasing a extd. warr. for the Sorento to bring it up to the 100000 bumper to bumper and with the price of that and then looking at new tires in another 6...

    News Flash, just got a call from the dealership and they are going to put our old tires back on the old rims give us the vehicle back to drive and in about 30 days when the new wheels get here they will have us come back in. You gota love customer service.

    Just an update, still have the loaner car and as of 4-10 they are still trying to locate the SE Kia Rep. to make a decision on the wheels. I wonder if Kia ever reads the comments posted on these forums.

    They took the wheels off the car to possibly send them out for plating but now are looking at ordering new wheels, this has been a real circus from the start.
  10. Chrome wheels peeling

    Have had a loaner car from the dealership since 3-31, they are deciding whether to re-plate the wheels or order a new set.

    They are factory wheels that came on the 2011 Sorrento EX limited. Can someone point me in the right direction.
  12. Chrome wheels peeling

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Just returned from the local dealer for regular service, typical oil change and tire rotation. I mentioned to them that when I was washing the wheels with plain soap and water that I can see the chrome on the inside of the wheel peeling. They stated on the work order what they found was the same...
  13. Flaking Rims

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Just noticed our 2011 EX chrome peeling, starts from the inside (backside) of the rim almost looks like the laminating is coming loose. Will take it to the dealer and let them make the call.
  14. K badges- How well do they stand up?

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Installed mine in 2011 and just within the last 6 months we are getting the peeling/oxidized look. Out in the Florida sun everyday doesn't help, going to by a new set and clear coat them as advised here before install.
