Man that sucks about the sun roof. Question,you say you plan to get pilot sport in the spring, did your not come with them? The only problem I had with Kia was with a remote start, they couldn’t figure it out for a couple of months and said they were waiting from higher HQ for a fix.

I checked my service report, and I was wrong about the sunroof issue being fixed as part of a TSB. It wasn’t fixed. Mind you, I didn’t have the issue, but I didn’t want to leave you upset with your dealer for not having a TSB. What they did fix was:
1. SA322 rattle noise from tail gate.
2. SC170 Front wiring harness inspection/replacement and grommet installation - recall

No, they came with some Bridgestone Potenza model that aren't very good.

Huh, weird. Did it ever get fixed?

Anyone notice how the front crash sensor only works either when you have the cruise control on or when you are in reverse? When I park in a garage I have to put in reverse and back in drive to get it to engage. It’s also notorious for going off when I park at a curb get back in to reverse and then the front sensor goes off like I’m going to hit something in the front while backing up? Anyone else?
Hey [MENTION=1958]Johnnyposs[/MENTION], your's is an easy fix. As others have mentioned, the SONAR sensors are the four round dots around the front and rear bumpers. Specifically the front for your question. Now, the system will ALWAYS activate in reverse. It's programmed that way unless you intentionally hit the P> (center) button on the counsel. This system is SMART. That means that it will remember your last selection.

The reason that it's not activating when you pull into your garage is because the system was turned OFF when in DRIVE at some point previously. So, tonight when you pull into the garage, push the button on the counsel to turn the system back ON while still in DRIVE and the system will then always activate when you have it in drive.

Yea they were kind enough to come to my house and install it since I bought it for the 4 banger model and updated to the gt2 before it arrived. I just hate how it turns off the engine once you open the doors.

Appreciate the correction. :)

The auto wipers do seem to have a mind of their own. Just when I think I have it figured out and set correctly they prove me wrong by wiping a dry windshield to death. Ended up turning this off.
