Taking Telluride in for the 3rd time since July for no freon. 1st time no leak found, said was low from factory. 2nd time said was small leak, kept for 2 weeks. Checked everywhere including where the system is connected under the SUV that people had reported leaks. It's been hot lately in South, so while at the beach discovered AC was again not working. Anyone have a similar issue and possible fix?
Same here. 3 times and still not fixed. Back to dealership next week.

This isn't a Kia problem, it is something that happens very infrequently and with almost every car maker out there. It's just being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Just google it and you will see people from different brands posting about it. It is damage from road debris, which should be covered by your insurance company.
If kia would make a better and stronger front grill this would not happen. Seems after one year of owning a Kia Telluride our transmission broke- AC doesn’t work - tapping sound from engine and now they are replacing motor. Not with a new one. If you read the warranty Kia has the right to replace with used parts. Including AC- transmission- engine and mostly every dam part !!! That 100,000 mile warranty is crap !

Also was just told I have damage to my condenser (no damage to grill) on 2020 Telluride that won’t be covered. $1700 to repair (once he can locate a new condenser) at Liberty Kia in IL. Service manager claims he hasn’t seen this on Telluride. I’ll try to take/attach photos once I pick up vehicle today.

Hi everyone, I just joined this forum, and I also frustrated with the AC in my Telly. About 2 weeks ago my AC blowing only warm air, took it to the stealer, I was told that they have to perform AC service $250, which includes a dye, and drive the car for few days and see what happens, so the AC worked for 2 weeks, and today blowing warm air again. Obviously there is a leak somewhere, so taking it back tomorrow and see what they can find. definitely there is a quality issue with Telly's AC system.

Our 2020 telluride is also currently in the shop. They say a rock must have damaged it and so of course it's not covered. We're being quoted $2200!!! Anyone have ANY luck at all dealing with kia customer service? Also, we've had the car less than a year so shouldn't refrigerant be covered even if the repair is not?

So took my Telly back to the dealer as requested, and the technician detected a leak in the condenser, but they don’t know what caused it. Seems like a quality issue to me, I think KIA should issue a recall to rectify the problem. I am just happy that they said it is covered by the basic warranty, ooff!!
Off course the part is on back order, so now waiting for it to arrive and go back in for replacement hopefully 🤞

Today, I called Kia consumer affairs and got a case number, and I was told that They will contact my dealer to expedite the repairs, but the real problem is that the condenser is on backorder, so I guess the ball is in Kia’s court, I don’t know how long they will drag this before they issue a recall. This is not a damage due to a rock, this is a quality issue.
