 Description of the problemWhen car going over bumps/imperfections on road, a tickling noise can be heard near b pillar or a pillar. This is a widespread issue with many users complained in online forums and dealerships. I took the car for inspection multiple times and kia usa denied it is an issue and refuse to provide further repair, inspection or assistance. The noise is very obvious when turning into a sloped driveway and the body is experiencing torsional forces. A consumer in canada experienced the same issue and got it diagnosed and repaired at gus revenberg kia windsor ontario canada. User darren1556 in this post below described the details: "it was the joint between the windshield frame and where it meets the top of the a-pillar. Having my roof completely exposed the tech stuck something in the bad joint and the noise was gone. I'm not sure if they put a spot weld in the end or tweaked the metal permanently." https://stingerforum. Org/threads/creaking-noise-driver-side-dash-area. 3355/page-2 i believe anything related to bad joints of welding and rigidity of the car frame could be a safety concern. Please look into this as kia usa refused to take any actions, while kia canada has diagnosed and fixed the issue. Thanks,
