  1. Are rattles covered under warranty?

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I had unlatched and latched my rear seats a couple of times and even put some grease onto the metal rod that sticks out that the seats latches onto. I'm only hearing my rattle/knock sound occasionally now and when it does happen, its much fainter. I'm going to give it a couple of days to see...
  2. Are rattles covered under warranty?

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Haven't had an alignment done yet. No modifications either. The only thing I can think of is when I ran over a piece of tire sitting on the road which I couldn't see because it was at night. The piece of tire hit and broke the plastic flap directly in front of the rear right wheel. The rear...
  3. Are rattles covered under warranty?

    I was thinking it might be coming from the suspension. It's a bit hard to believe that a suspension connection or bolt came loose this early, but I guess its possible.
  4. Are rattles covered under warranty?

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Thanks for the reply. I also want to point out that I had 1 thing in the styrofoam divider that sits under the cargo mat and above the spare wheel, my ball mount bar for the towing hitch. I didn't think it would have made the sound because I had that in there since the day I bought the car. But...
  5. Are rattles covered under warranty?

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    My Sportage is a little over 4 years old now from the date it was purchased and currently has 35k miles. I am getting a rattle/knock sound that sounds like it is coming from the rear passenger side. It only makes the sound when the car is going slow, especially over bumps. However, when the car...
  6. Uvo & Bluetooth Question

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Hello! My Sportage has the non-nav Uvo system with the 4.3" touchscreen. Does anybody know what bluetooth AVRCP version this Uvo system uses? I have done some research and Uvo uses an operating system called Windows Embedded Automotive (WEA). The only problem is that I don't know which version...
  7. No Audio Over Bluetooth

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Hi! My 2014 Sportage has the non-nav Uvo infotainment system. Ever since about 2 weeks ago, it has developed an audio streaming problem. Every time I start my car, it automatically connects my phone via bluetooth which is great. After it finishes connecting, music will usually automatically...
  8. Song Information Over Bluetooth

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Hi! I have a 2014 Kia Sportage with the Uvo infotainment system and Infinity audio. I always have my phone connected by bluetooth and play music to the car's audio system some of the time. When music is being streamed by bluetooth, the car's touchscreen should display the artist and song name...
  9. Weird rattling noise from driver side

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    My Sportage has developed a rattle, 2 actually. Both of them are a ticking sound located in the front doors somewhere in the middle and very close to the B-pillars. What's weird is that they're the same ticking sounds and they are coming from the same location on each of the front doors. Also...
  10. What temp. air comes out of the rear vents?

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    My Sportage has the automatic dual-zone climate control system where the 2 people in the front can control their own individual temperatures. The Sportage, however, also has vents that are located behind the center console for the people in the back. One question that popped up in my mind is, if...
  11. New set of tires, Falken Pro G4

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I got the stock Hankook Optimo H426 on my Sportage as well. Did you notice any difference in tire/road noise when you switched? In my opinion, the H426 are a bit loud, but I can't be for sure because I haven't had any other tire on this car yet. Also, what was the reason for you choosing a...
  12. Anyone else have a gas smell?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    At the tip of gas pump nozzles, there is a small hole with a pipe attached to it that leads back into the handle of the nozzle. This pipe has suction in it in which air flows through it. Once fuel has reached to the top, it blocks the opening of the pipe, which then cuts off the fuel flow. This...
  13. 2013 Sportage SX Tires

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    My Sportage came with Hankook Optimo H426 tires also. I thought the hard ride was coming mostly from the sporty-tuned suspension of the Sportage, but I might be wrong because I'm still using the OEM tires and haven't used any others. The harsh ride, I don't really mind. My only complaint is that...
  14. Reliability?

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    I have a 2014 Sportage EX AWD with currently 14500 miles, no problems so far. I change my oil using conventional every 5000 miles, which means my third oil change is coming soon. My only complaint is that my Sportage has developed a few interior rattles, which is pretty off-putting to me. Also...
  15. What is the purpose of plastic spoiler in front of rear tires?

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I took them off of my Sportage for both of the rear tires, mainly because one got damaged when something strucked it while I was driving. Instead of taking just the damaged one off, I also took the one on the other side off for symmetry. These plastic flaps are called deflectors and they're...
