  • 4,000 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Kia Optima. While driving 40 mph, air would seep through the window while it was closed. The contact could hear the wind at speeds of 40 and 60 mph. One dealer suggested driving with the rearview mirror closed towards the door. Another dealer attempted to adjust the door, but was unsuccesful. The vehicle has not been repaired. The current and failure mileages were less than 4,000.
