Wow, I can't even imagine how that would happen. I doubt the warranty will cover it but I haven't read it in a while.
Another service advisor and myself both noticed that it looks like that skirt is sticking out past the fender.after looking at the photo for awhile, is it my eyes or is the body not aligned properly, cause to me it appears the front is not flush with the rear. If any body part sticks out to far it will be subject to road spray.. Take a look and see in person.
Other than that, have you put on wheel spacers that make your tires stick out past the body??
How does them treating that part of your paint as a warranty make (or not make it) 'modding time'? Just because they deny your paint claim doesn't mean the rest of the car isn't under warrantyIf not I'll just have to get some touch up paint for it for right now. I'm in college and my father bought me the car for college and if my dealership doesn't hold up to the warranty, which I'm not sure this is even covered anyway, but if not its modding time.
That's a really dumb thought process, no offense. What you have there is a fairly inexpensive fix. Not to mention that most mods you can do without affecting your warranty. Find a new dealer? All Kia's within the U.S. will serve a warranty for your vehicle.My though process is like this. If I rightfully see that this should be covered under warranty and my dealership denies to fix it under warranty. They probably will deny to fix anything else under warranty. Which to me means I will be able to mod it.
