So, the Telluride is a great ride, but it is becoming clear that it has a flaw. AC condensers and radiators are being punctured by rocks and debris that easily pass through the wide open lower grills. Repairs are being reported to be $1400+, and while insurance may cover it, you are still out your deductible and a bunch of time to get the car fixed, not to mention the frustration of dealing with the situation. The solution is simple, a pair of screens that keep the rocks out of there in the first place.
The VoltShop has been making these grill screens for Chevy Volts, Bolts, Honda Clarities, Toyota RAV4s, Mistubishi Outlanders, and several Subarus for over 6 years. And we are now ready with the same thing for your Kia Telluride. These install over the outside of your grill and are held in place with plastic ties. No modifications to the car are necessary at all! Complete installation instructions and the plastic ties are included with every TellurideScreen.
The TellurideScreen set is made from a strong metal mesh with 1/4" holes to keep larger stones and debris from getting to the radiator and doing the damage. It is powder coated for a good looking finish, trimmed with rubber edging. It looks great and is hardly noticeable once installed. There are three pieces in the set, the long piece is for the top slot, the two short pieces are for the lower slots, on either side of center. They do not interfere with the driving lights on the SX trim level Telluride.
Here is the TellurideScreen set installed.
And now, just because we can, you can get the same screen set in a black plastic dipped stainless steel mesh. These cost a bit more, but are more durable and won't rust over time. The same great protection and more durability, what's not to love about that? You'll notice in the pictures below that there are two different mesh patterns, welded and woven. We try to keep both in stock all of the time, but can't quite guarantee it. If you have a preference between them, let us know when you order and we will honor that if at all possible.
The two piece set in black is $68. The stainless steel set is $100. This includes shipping within the Continental US. (Shipping to Canada adds $16.) To order, just send an email to email@example.com. Include your name, shipping address and that you own a Telluride, and if you want the 2 piece screen set, or an individual one. We'll take it from there and get right back to you. We keep these items in stock at all times and can get one on the way in 24-48 hours. Paypal and Zelle are accepted at Steve.VoltShop@yahoo.com. Venmo payments can be sent to @stephen-ohara-2.
