Kia should come out with a factory / dealer installed 7 pin plug in upgrade kit. I’m sure there will be several aftermarket available just for this vehicle soon.
How about you do it? Honestly tried and was roadblocked. But if you want to start a class action lawsuit, great start it. Words are words unless you are willing to do something.I would think that Kia would want to promptly come up with an acceptable solution rather than face a class action lawsuit that they would surely lose. Has anyone involved in this thread escalated in writing the issue to the Kia corporate office?
It may be that the Telluride is not rated for 5000 towing and why there is no 7 pin connector. If a 7 pin was installed KIA would probably have to change the complete framework to make the Telluride for 5000lb. You say what would that matter if they change. Dollars my friend dollars and it would be passed to us the consumers and we would not be bragging about the bang for the buck we are getting now. Yes Kia should say the Telluride is only good for towing 3500 lbs according to the tongue weight it has installed on the factory towing. Just my 2 cents worth but I do plan to ask the coporate guys in the next meeting i have coming upHow about you do it? Honestly tried and was roadblocked.

You misinterpreted my line of thinking. As stated, I believe that Kia, given the opportunity to do so, would much rather produce a solution to this problem that would satisfy the already many Telly owners that are angry. Class action lawsuits only benefit lawyers. As a purchaser of multiple Kia vehicles and extremely satisfied advocate of the company up until now, I believe that if the issue is brought to the attention of Kia's higher management, they will find a solution that will bring their Telly customers back into the fold of the satisfied. I asked if anyone has addressed this in writing to said management so that I can know the results before I do so myself. I'm interested in knowing how you were "roadblocked" and what your efforts were.How about you do it? Honestly tried and was roadblocked.
