Just purchased a new 2013 Kia Sorento LS was so disappointed to feel the rough idle. It is a 2.4 cylinder. Am I in trouble here or can this be fixed?
Anyone out there have this problem?
Have a service appointment on July 17.

Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

Well I guess it all depends on what you are used to (or rather, what you normally drive). All 4 cylinders will idle more rough than a 6 or 8 cylinder. The 2.4L engines have been great. I always thought the idle was a little rough and noisey in my opinion. But on the other hand, my Optima is the same way. It's tough to tell if the rough idle you're experiencing is normal or not, but my guess is that it's normal and the dealer will find nothing wrong.

I have a 2013 EX and it does the same thing. I was told the roughness is caused by the GDI engine and the way it operates. Let me know what your service department says.
