This vehicle is grossly overrated and has many issues with it. I have had it for 6 months and have had it in the shop 7 times since I bought it with a trade in of a Subaru Ascent. The Ascent was a much more reliable SUV. The "Low Oil"

Without UVO subscription, remote starter and live traffic will not work. You have to pay $29.99 per month. UVO customer care told me that we are not "compelling you to buy" rudely..So over $55,000.00 later from Nov 2020, now I'm left walking in the snow to warm up my car.

This car looks great and drives great. Has all the features I was looking for in a new vehicle. However, there is a glitch in the entertainment system that causes the bluetooth feature to not work correctly. Also, the navigation system has a glitch so it will not save any

We bought a brand new 2020 Telluride with no miles on it. The car overheated on the freeway after a week. It appears that the radiator fell apart, while my wife was 50 miles out of the city headed to a funeral with our 3 year old, and in-laws in

Radiator Failed - Regret!

Complaint Resolution:

Yes, by the dealer

Radiator failed and car overheated less than a week after we bought it. Kia dealers refer you to Kia customer service, and that experience is about as frustrating as working with a cable company. I would never buy a car from Kia again.
