REGARDLESS OF THE SETTING ON THE AIR FLOW MODE SELECTION KNOB, HOT DRY AIR IS ALWAYS DIRECTED INTO THE FACE OF DRIVER AND PASSENGER, RESULTING IN VISION PROBLEMS. ALSO, DUST, DIRT AND POLLENS ARE BLOWN INTO DRIVER'S EYES WHEN DRIVING ON DIRT AND GRAVEL ROADS HERE AT THE LAKE OF THE OZARKS . KIA REPRESENTATIVES HAVE RESPONDED THAT ALL KIAS HAVE THIS DEFECT, THAT IT IS A DESIGN PROBLEM AND WILL NOT BE CORRECTED UNDER THE VEHICLE WARRANTY. WE BELEIVE THIS DEFECT, DESIGN OR OTHERWISE, IS A HEALTH AND SAFETY MATTER AND SHOULD BE CORRECTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BY KIA. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE.
