So after all the crazy rain here in So cal, there seems to be alot of moisture built up inside the right taillight of my EX 4 door. Anyone else experience this problem. I'm taking it to the dealer this weekend to get it looked at.

I had a bit in my driverside reverse light cell. It happened once and hasn't again. Will watch out for it. Another forte owner I know has gone through 2 sets of headlights!

I had both of my headlights do that. I took it back to the dealer and they replaced it under warranty....and it hasn't happened since.

My Koupe has alot of condensation in my back left reverse light on the car body, it is getting replaced when the new one comes in.

The right side reverse on the trunk lid has a little condensation but the repair guy at Kia couldnt see anything when I brought it in even though I could see a drop of water. He said he would look at it when the other part came in. I think he was just old and busy and didnt want to deal with it then.

moisture on tail lights and even on the headlights are common on some of the recent kia models. One of the causes is that some have vents on it which should also remove the moisture after a while. The kia soul has the same problem. If it doesn't disappear after a while better bring it back to the dealership.

I'm not a car guy at all, but I did mine in about an hour without any instructions (pioneer if you will). Only thing I had to go off of was suggestions from the guys at DDM (I'm only about 30 minutes away from their place). It really is pretty simple. Just follow the write ups and you won't have any problems at all, and you will feel even more accomplished and satisfied knowing you did it yourself...
