I have the luxury package with headed seats, black leather & so on. The only real problem is I have a noise over audio system that is present when on the road or in parking sturcure. I have no problem if engine is off. I have family who have KIA's also and they do not have this problem. has anyone had this problem? If you have any ideas let me know.

Could you provide more detail?
Do you mean that the audio system has an unwanted sound coming from the speakers?
Does the sound persist when the volume is all the way down?
Does the sound get louder if you turn the volume control up?
Describe the sound.
Does the sound change when you increase the speed of the engine?
Any other clues to this problem?

That's a yes to unwanted sound coming over speakers.
Not sure It does persist when volume is all the way down, will check.
The is louder if volume turned up.
Now there is a crackling sound along with high frequency chirping.
Yes the sound increases , but if I turn off engine radio work fine?

Everything I've seen says late summer early fall of this year for the new Sportage release in the U.S., don't know if it would be the same for Canada or not.
Here's some interesting stuff from the Korean website on the new Sportage.
