Hmm! That's not good. They should speak to Kia at Weston-s-mare, they cured my noise. I hope you have a loan car whilst this is going on! It perhaps begs the question that either the Niro rear suspension is 'delicate' or that the Kia repair recall work method induces the noise problem.
Has anyone else encountered this on here or another forum?

:-) Hooray had it back yesterday with noise gone. They dismantled again and rebuilt rear suspension and it is perfect!
Yes had a car (diesel manual) and was I glad to get mine back!

Hi JOL54.
So it's not a shock absorber on your car rattling?

No, they did not find anything obvious - just rebuilt it again!

Mind you seems to pull to the left slightly now - going in for service early Jan so will mention it then.
