What Owners Say
"they only pushed the piece in far enough so that 2 of the four retaining snaps were in place...took about 20 seconds for the dealership to fix"Anonymous, KS (2018 Kia Sorento SX 3.3-L V6)
"Front windshield rubber trim, driver side was slightly shredded as if someone had cut across it laterally. This in 2-3 locations on the vertical side of the windshield. Dealer submitted as a warranty claim which was decline by Kia. Explanation was that user (me or my wife) would have done this scraping ice from windshield in the winter. I have owned at least 14 cars driven in winter conditions with snow/ice and have never had this issue. I think this rubber trim is inadequate and of poor quality."Anonymous, (2018 Kia Sorento SX 3.3-L V6)
"Molding on the driver rear windows was warping"Anonymous, WA (2018 Kia Sorento LX 3.3-L V6)
"The slightest hit with a rock results in a chip in the paint. The chip rusts almost immediately. Brought it to another dealer closer to our house to show them a chip within the first week and they said buy body paint. Didn't offer to just give us some.The dealer where we purchased it tried to sell us a 'body' warranty for $3,000 that we scoffed at. Now we see why. Something with the 2018 model?"Dennis S., WI (2018 Kia Sorento EX 3.3-L V6)
"As soon as you get a chip in the paint from a rock or something that hits it the chip rusts."Dennis S., WI (2018 Kia Sorento EX 3.3-L V6)
