Kia have put out a Service campaign for the treatment of rusting rear axles (Upper Mounting Brackets) to the Sorento manufactured up to November 2008. It consists of removing rust and Zinc coating the Upper welded plates and the wax coating the whole axle. (See attached campaign)
It has been suggested that this work is not sufficient to eliminate the horror photos posted on the Kia Sorento UK website.
I had mine treated last week it took 2 hours.
As this is not yet considered a Recall, and if you have your Sorento serviced at an independent garage, you will not get it treated. It is up to you to get in touch with your local dealer to have the work carried out.
