There is just over 50,000 miles I have already replaced the drivers side window motor two months ago as I took it to a Kia Service Department and they said it needed to be replaced and not covered by warranty. NOW the Passenger Side and one of the back windows do not work. I really do not want to take it back to the dealer for them to tell me these motors also need to be replaced and charge another $600 bucks. Is there anything else I should be looking at? Seems extreme for three power window motors to go out within two months of each other, without that many miles on the damn car.

5/60 'bumper-to-bumper' warranty did not cover window motors? I agree, it is too coincidental - might be a fuse.
Wouldn't a fuse affect all of them? Maybe not if the fuse bus is bundled with other items like <dome light+pass rear window+rear usb> is one circuit.

I'm assuming that you have tried both the master (driver's door switches) and the individual specific door switches, to ensure that it's not a switch issue.
