Kia Telluride Issues

If anyone knows how to go about getting the rest of them B Pillar trim off so it can be replaced it’s appreciated. My dealer is an hour drive one way and they want me leave it there for few days. I have the new part but it requires taking off the lower metal window trim off to get the b pillar part completely off so it can be replaced.

What a drag, when I inspect the rest of them, seems the other b pillar trim parts of the right front door and drivers side doors, all are not stuck down well to the body either. There’s gaps where you can push them tighter, then they kind of unstick and seem loose.

Has anyone had any problems or issues with the Telluride so far?

My seats barely heat and the radio is Statically. My ride is not smooth and I need a Wheel Alignment. I only had the car for 4 days I got the car October 16 2 days before my birthday. I called the dealer and have an appointment for Saturday October 26. I am not happy at all.

Hopefully this helps someone... Answered my own question - how to take off the lower metal door trim to expose and replace the plastic b pillar trim part.

Carefully pry upper front corner with fingers lifting off and separate top to bottom of the lower metal trim part until forward plastic clip releases, only lift off enough space to clear for swapping out for the new part, careful not to bend it, work slow.

Pictures attached, cleaned with wax and grease remover, added extra spots of 3M tape on new b pillar trim where new part will be prone to separate. New part installed, now looks great again.

There was another member that posted on the FB group that they're having issues with the battery. Something is causing the battery to drain, dealer replaced with a new battery but the problem is still there. I'll keep everyone posted if they share an update.
I’ve just recently had a battery issue... it started three times then wouldn’t again with all warning lights going off, ESC system issues and then saying the key fob wasn’t registering. But the radio and everything was turning on so we didn’t think it was battery. But that’s what the dealer where it was towed to said - “battery was drained” so they just charged it and sent me on my way. But why then did it start 3x before that? Something isn’t adding up... waiting for it to happen again

Mine did the same thing after two weeks of ownership. In my case they replaced the battery instead of just charging it. I would suggest picking up a portable charger just in case.

Anyone else have this issue?
Ok so I have learned if it rains really hard and the roads are wet my mirror sensors will go off and tell me a car is behind me but there’s really not one. This happens EVERY time it rains!

I have the LX and the horn has randomly gone on and stays on till I have to turn on the vehicle and the horn shuts off. As soon as I turn the car off the horn goes nuts again. I’ve taken it to the dealership. They’ve replaced the horn and said it was an electrical issue. The problem has come back again after a week. Taken it back today.

has anyone else had this problem?

Left front caliper is sticking @ 16,000. Not the first braking issue that I've had. The dealership will be cleaning them for the second time (first cleaning was around 10,000 when a grinding noise was occurring). This began with the onset of winter in upstate NY. I hope it does not become a regular issue :(

Do you think that this could be related to the child safety alarm. Took me a while to figure that one out, but I now have it disabled now.
