Hi, I started a post on here about a year ago. I have had my 63 XRDI back to the dealers three times, had numerous conversations with Kia and tried to get the Caravan Club involved.
Kia deny that there us a problem, my dealer has examined the car and says the heights are within acceptable limits. I fitted donuts into the rear springs which helped a little with the height, but the ride was far too hard and bumpy so I removed them.
I think it depends on the individual car, they all have different ride heights" within the acceptable limits".
As a very crude measure , in the showroom on a new car I was able to get 4 fingers between the top of the tyre and the wheel arch, on my car it was 3. The dealer said it was the weight of the towbar on my car making the difference.I dont know why or how, but my oufit does not seem as low now as it was. I don't put really heavy stuff in the boot or front locker.I tow to Northern Spain twice a year with no problems ... except sometimes after hitching up I cant swing the jockey wheel round to lift it up.
If you have any further information please post details, you should also look on the kia owners forum.
You will get a few non constructive comments on here, just ignore them.
