k5 EX with premium package. 7 1/2 months of ownership. has anybody else noticed a slight knocking sound upon acceleration after each shift. Mine started at about 4000 miles. Took it to dealership and they agreed noise was there and opened a techline case with Kia. Road tested and sent a video to Kia they said they would send a new replacement engine and the dealership installed it at 6000 miles. Drove car home and next day noise was back. Dealership now says that is a normal sound for this engine. Also had a rubbing sound in steering column when turning the steering wheel. Kia sent a new replacement steering column and dealership changed it . Problem solved quiet now. Curious if anybody else has had these issues and their comments about them.

I am just trying to figure out why there is a coolant smell. I’ve been to the dealership on 3 separate occasions and no luck. I have one open tech line case but have not heard anything.

Had a coolant smell after installation of new engine but is has dissipated now. Just residual spill of coolant with engine change.

I have owned my kia since January 28, 2021 in the first 2 weeks I noticed the moter making a knocking sound which has progressively gotten louder. There is a noise when I turn my wheel but not all the time . I have several issues , it's not air tight, the engine cuts out like loss of power a lot, it acts like transmission slips or hesitates, the roaters repeatedly cover in rust, the brakes grab and make a dragging sound, when in sport mode the Rpm's tac out in the red zone before trans changes gears and remain at high Rpm while driving, when I Wash car water gets inside of car and trunk, the body alignment is off, sewing on interior coming out, the remote start works sometimes to crank but doesn't stay running long enough to warm engine. That's all I can think of right now. I would like to know how you got the dealership to fix anything ? My dealership said they would look at it but if they say nothing is wrong then I would have to pay them $145.00. They act as if they cant hear me tell them that all of this is wrong with my car. Any suggestions welcome.

My suggestion is you either ended up with a complete lemon that the dealership mistreated before they sold it to you or you sound like a complete whiner and complainer because that’s just a ridiculous amount of issues on a new car

Well I agree it's most certainly a lemon and it is a ridiculous amount of problems that's what I have been trying to tell my dealership but they aren't doing shit about it. As far as a whiner or a complainer I seriously doubt it.

I overstepped my bounds and apologize for my tone. I love the new K5 GT and feel terrible about your treatment by the dealer. When I had telluride issues regarding my dealership experience I called corporate customer service and they helped. By calling the dealer and issuing my a one time monthly payment credit.
also, many states have lemon laws so please document everything
Best of luck 🤞
