paint chipping on 2015 kia soul
Issue Status: Discussion
2013 Kia Sorento stripped paint. I have the same issue. I noticed the rear roof near antenna panel totally stripped down to primer. Of all the cars I’ve owned this has never happened.
2016 Kia Soul (Newport blue colour) with just over 40,000 km. No grid, gravel, etc. road driving - all paved. Same issue, noticed speckling around the hood as well as above front and rear wheel wells. Took to dealer (Hudson Kia in Listowel, ON) and spoke with Service Manager. He said he is 99% sure Kia will not do anything about it and even mentioned that he owns a Kia Soul with 15,000 km and having the same issue - not acceptable. Speckling is right down to the grey primer. Service Manager did the same thing as above, took picture, and had me sign a form, which they will be sending to the manufacturer.
