Consumers have filed a total of 50 complaints related to Kia SUSPENSION.
The front end creaks every time i slowly ride over a speed bump or experience dip in the road. I originally reported it to the dealership when still under warranty. I took the mechanic on a ride with me in the vehicle so he could hear the noise. He agreed something was wrong, probably with the suspension. After several visits to the dealership they could not target the reason for the creaking noise. Their only quick-fix-temporary answer was to spray the entire undercarriage with lubricant. That eliminated the issue for a brief couple months, but the creaking noise quickly returned, and the vehicle is out of warranty.
Failure to accelerate,jurking,stalling while driving on highway. Was told there a rack and pinion tie rod system needs to be replaced and steering pin. Car does deceleration, oil burns up in a week.
I started complaining to the dealer that the front right side wheel doesn't seem right it seems to be spinning at a different speed as the other tires which wore the tires down and the the brakes to wear. The front end shakes back and forth while driving. They tightened the bolts that secure the body to the frame. But it only feels somewhat fine for a couple of weeks. I took it to 3different kia dealers and all have said there's nothing wrong and there is no safety issue, but it sure doesn't feel it. It seems like they just want to get it past the warranty. They installed new software for the engine knock to monitor it but it seems worse since they installed it. My car feels like it's falling apart. I even called kia headquarters and they said they go by what the technicians say, if they say there isn't anything wrong then there must not be. I have all my records.

MAY 2017 I HAD 3 ALIGNMENTS AND I CONSTANTLY BEEN GETTING ALIGNMENTS AND REPLACING MY BRAKES AND TIRES. AUGUST 2020 MY CAR STARTED TO CUT OFF WHILE I WAS DRIVING AND ACCELERATE WHEN I TRIED TO STOP. MY CHECK ENGINE CODE AN IGNITION COILS PROBLEM SO I DID A FULL TUNE-UP AND OIL CHANGE IN SEPTEMBER. BUT IT DIDNT FIX THE PROBLEM SO AFTER THAT MY CAR CODE AN INTAKE FAILURE. I HAD IT REPAIRED IN OCTOBER BUT IT STILL DIDN'T FIX THE PROBLEM AND ON TOP OF THAT THE PISTONS IN THE ENGINE STARTED GRINDING. I TOOK MY CAR BACK TO THE SHOP AND THEY SAID THAT I NEED A WHOLE NEW ENGINE. NOW MY CAR BEEN SITTING EVERY SINCE THE BEGINNING OF NOVEMBER.
