I am also told this is something to do with the Hybrid Tensioners and the Auxiliary belt. Apparently my car is one of many onsite, with some having been there for 5 months!
The belt and tensioner story sounds a bit strange to me as previously, I had only ever heard of that syndrome affecting the 1.6 diesel versions. Like ‘howitis’, I have a difficulty with the ‘some have been there 5 months’ claim. I don’t doubt that it’s possible there are some cars awaiting parts or a signal from KIA UK to proceed with repairs, but I can’t believe that such cars are HEV models.

Could you clarify please?

Apologies , I didnt mean to imply that they have a number of exactly the same car or indeed fault that I have, just that they have a number of vehicles that are still waiting a repair for one reason of another

This was a comment made to me when I was pushing the dealer for a potential return date of my vehicle.

For Ray Ward, well that's exactly what your comment did imply.
