There are many parts to your Kia vehicle that may go unnoticed. Weather stripping is one. While you may not spend much time thinking about it, it is essential when it comes to protecting your cabin against wind, dirt, rain, and debris.
Weather stripping is a simple rubber and slat system that lines your vehicle's windows and doors, shielding the interior from the elements while also helping to muffle exterior noise as well as the sound of the doors closing.

- There's air whistling through your closed windows and doors
- You notice water spots on the inside of your doors or on the floor mats
- You see cracked or brittle pieces of weather stripping
