  1. I have a 2019, 17,000 miles. No problems.

    Many who have posted here with the problem have had it diagnosed and fixed fairly quickly. The ones with the longest sagas post more updates about it so that outcome seems more present.

    I have a 2019 Kia Niro EV EX Premium purchased in May, 2019 with less than 20K miles on it, and Kia is putting in a new motor under warranty for this problem, per a technical service bulletin. In the beginning the sound was so subtle that only I, the primary owner/operator, could hear it. Or, perhaps more correctly, would admit to hearing it. But it finally got so loud that the service manager at the local Kia dealer could not pretend he couldn't hear it, and did the right thing. My issue is that I think they let the warranty work sit around behind the retail/pay work, and things do not proceed as quickly as they could; they will have had my car in their shop for a month tomorrow, and it will be at least another two weeks before the replacement motor arrives. Meanwhile, I am without my primary, and very much loved, vehicle. Fortunately I have a backup. It is a conversion van that gets less than 18 miles per gallon, and I hate to drive it, but at least it gets me around...
