Tailgate Struts - tailgate not lifting fully/slowly

Post by NiNiro » Sat Jan 26, 2019 10:15 am

At this stage, vehicle is 15 months old and covered 36000 miles. Whilst the tailgate is certainly used often it is disappointing to find that in such a short period of time that the gas struts are weakening. Next service is due soon where I trust Kia will change them.

With temperature changes the tailgate goes from a slow open in milder weather to a midway halt when it’s cold.
