Kia Sportage LX: I have a 2008 kia sportage. Recently my radio

Customer Question

I have a 2008 kia sportage. Recently my radio went out now it plays really low and distorted sounding. When I put a cd in that plays fine so it's not a speaker issue

Like I mentioned before none of the radio stations come in clear or loud but when I switch to cd that plays fine, volume and all. My radio has been working perfectly fine untill today I literally started my car switched to my radio station, drove off and not even 5 mins and the radio goes out plays really quietly even though volume was up all the way and it sounds garbled

The Radio itself has an internal failure and will have to be replaced, Your nearest Kia dealership should have an exchange unit in their parts dept.

How much does a exchange radio unit usually cost. I'm not under warranty anymore. Is there anything I can buy locally like from a best buy
Expert:  Cardoctor71 replied 2 years ago.
That is your choice, shop around, call at least 3 repair facilities including the Kia dealership in your area for pricing, I'm sure there is some afmkt units available, just make sure the repair facility can deal with antitheft issues should they arise.
