Thank you very much! I'll set it to 36-PSI on all four corners.

This goes for any tire and whether we have 18-inch or 19-inch wheels correct?

I appreciate the information! :)
Take a look at the placard placed on the drivers door sill

Update I had dealership check my brakes because i kept hearing a sound like brakes were rubbing and sure enough they said it was a common issue they were having. Dealership cut all 4 rotors and said it shouldnt be an issue. However they couldnt tell me if it would again be an issue if i upgraded to some drilled rotors.

It doesn’t matter if you change your rotors. It’s the sh***y Kia brake pads!

Yes the brake pads suck big time. The G70 has the exact same problem only took 2,000 miles for this to happen on my car.

What I did in a safe spot of course was put the car in sport mode accelerate to about 70 mph slam on the brakes and repeat five times as fast as possible. Problem solved until it does it again.

I'm thinking about trying the brake pads in the picture below eventually they are priced fair and they have to be better than stock. I believe the stinger and G70 use the exact same brake pads some manufacturers list both cars and some manufacturers only list one of them.

Amazing replies and information!

Thank you everyone!

I will have them fix it a second time with OEM parts... but... if this happens a third time... maybe have them replace the entire vehicle or get a refund?

My only concern with using aftermarket parts is if this issue happens again then they can try to play games with me...

I love the car to death and I just want this bullshit resolved. It's getting very old.

Foolish question but what is the corporate number?
Not to be an ass but I'd like to see it. There is no way you are getting a refund over brakes. Not in a million years
