Q? I have a 2011 Kia Optima & a 2012 Kia Sorento SX that I purchased in October 2011. I took the Optima to be service at Midas in Seaside, CA yesterday Sunday June 3, 12. I normally take it to Kia Stevens Creek but I didn't have time this time because its so far away. After Midas completed routine maintenance (Oil Change Tire Rotation and Balance) they did their 101 point inspection and notice seepage around the mounting of the pan and suggested that I take it to kia to have a seal replace since its still under warranty. I took it to My Kia in Salinas,CA and they said the only thing they could do was take pictures and send it in to Kia Corporate, I called Kia corporate to see why they would replace the seal when from the pictures you can clearly see this dark oily residue around the mounting and they said there is no defective part and if My Kia replaces it the warranty would not replace the part. Now anybody I talk to mechanic or not knows that a seepage eventually becomes a leak, so why isn't Kia repairing this? Has anyone had this issue or can help me understand?
