Hello all,
My left front, over the course of about 4 days (when indicator light first came on) lost enough PSI to end up at 18psi prior to my re-inflating. No obvious tire damage or pothole encounters. Any advice on whether the bumper to bumper will cover this type of issue?
Thanks!

when you coat the tread and sidewalls with soap to look for a leak, do not overlook soaping the rim/bead joint and the valve stem - i'm sure the dealer will do this if you take it in and if they do find a leak that the warranty does not cover then it's only fair to bill you for the time a tech needs to determine that it is a wear and tear issue not involving kia - and THEN it'll be up to you to either repair or replace the tire -

^^^Very true....it could be a defective wheel causing a slow leak, I agree call your dealer. :)

Just take it to a tire shop. They'll be able to tell you for sure what is going on for about $10. Les Schwabb does them for free most of the time. You might have rolled over a small nail.
