Now it's my turn I guess... Only had the bloody car for a month and now the main brake cylinder is broke. That's what they think anyways.

When I put my foot on the brake pedal it slowly sinks, but when pressing it fairly hard and fast it reacts, hence why they think its a brake cylinder.

I went to the dealer yesterday and waited for an hour before they could say what was wrong. And they didnt have a spare cylinder of course. So now I'm driving around in my new Picanto which can't even brake properly. YAAY :(

I'm expecting a call anytime soon from the dealer with news about a new brake cylinder.

Expect a mention of a car chrashing through a car dealer in the news if they want me to pay for this ;)

Well there should be no question about payment, warranty pure and simple.
If they don;t have part in stock, and bearing in mind it's a brake fault, I'd ask for a replacement car til yours is fixed, you should not drive around knowing your brakes are not 100%!
And your dealer shouldn't have let you go!!

They changed the cylinder. And seeing that Kia offers a 3 year warranty here they were happy doing it :)

1st post Jan 20th to last post Feb 8th ... almost 3 weeks, i dunno if that's fast enough or not for the spare part availability.
But glad to know they accept your warranty claim and exchange the new spare part. Hope your brake is working well from now on :).
3 years warranty in europe, here .. we only given 2 years warranty/50000km.
