Question about 2007 Kia Sportage 4x4 V6
WE TOOK IT TO 2 KIA DEALERS THEY CHECKED BRAKES AND SAID THEY COULD NOT FIND THE PROBLEM I KNOW OF 1 OTHER SPORTAGE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM
Are you sure it's the brakes? If brakes are rubbing they'll get hot and the wheel lug bolts will too.
Put on old clothes, drive the car down the freeway on a Saturday or Sunday morning, when there's no traffic, being careful to not touch the brake pedal (except as needed). When you've heard the rubbing noise for fifteen minutes or so, pull way over somewhere safe & park. Turn the engine off & apply the parking brake. Go to each wheel and touch the lug nuts and/or the brake drums or discs the wheels are attached to. If a brake's dragging the disc or drum will be scalding hot. If the brakes are not hot, the rubbing sound isn't brakes.
