Is it normal for the my 2.5crd to sound like an old transit van even when it is warmed up it only has 4000 miles, oil ok had a hyundai santa fe before this 2.0crd and did not sound like this after two years and with 20000 on the clock any suggestions :unsure:

Fraid so ..... they do tend to sound like a tractor but also work/pull like one as well !!! :p

Must admit that it sounds loud inside the car however, when stood outside, say when the missus gets to have a drive, they sound OK. :crying:

You'll just have to lump it & wait for the new model out late 06 which should have a better block in it !!!!

Hi there

I'm still waiting for my Kia but I can tell you that the demo one I drove was quieter than the Nissan Mistral (2.7L intercooled turbo diesel) I have at present and they did suggest it would get quieter and perform better once it has about 10,000 Km (6,000 miles) on it. So I guess it's just a matter of degree and what you're used to.

What's this about letting the missus have a drive Mark ????? next thing they'll want their own darn Kia !!!!!!!

Derek : ;)

The engine does improve with age, driven a few 40k/50k mile ones, feel much sweeter and pull harder than a new one.

Hey ..... Now c'mon Derek ..... I'm a 90's kinda man. You know, let the missus have some time away from the kitchen sink & a little time away from the bedroom ( MMMMMMMMMMM !!!!! ) & besides...... it was to go to the local off licence to fetch some more 'tinnies' for the barby .... is that OK !!!

The Sorento is much quieter in the cabin than the Vitara which is perhaps it's main opposition.

Last Friday I travelled 300 miles at speeds up to 90mph and it was a very acceptable noise level inside, as good as the Rover 75 I used to have.

Not part of a plan, but coincidentally, DVLA changed the registered keeper name and address for my car recently and it's taken about 6 weeks to get them to correct it, so, what if I did go that fast and got flashed andthe ticket went to the wrong person who tore it up and I didn't get to know about it.

I wonder?
