Have had my 2.0 a/t koup for a week now and it's a blast, however today on the highway, noticed a slight shudder which was enhanced when i gave slight right turn input. Made no difference 3rd or 4th gear. Can't feel it below say 80 km/h. Feels like the front right wheel is about to come off, slight exageration only. I checked for stones in the tread, checked for play in the wheel but all seems good. A bit worried, looks like I will have to test Kia's claim on their extensive warranty. Any ideas what it might be?

Problem has been corrected. The people at my KIA dealer have been excellent. I brought the car in last week with just a couple days before a planned road trip from Edmonton to Penticton BC. When I arrived without notice, as the shudder was just too bad to continue, I was brought in to service where the service manager got one of the mechanics to ride with me. He new right away that the problem was the CV joint off the transaxle, or something like that. I told them my dilemma with my trip and they managed to order the part from Toronto and have it installed and ready by next day. Wow, had a great trip and the car ran beautifully. Great gas mileage as well getting about 700km to the 50 liter tank, and thats through some mountainous terrain. The mechanic said that he had the same problem with a Soul as well. Bad news about the trip, got a stonechip arggggg. Hope this helps 2.4LForteSX.
