CORINTH -- At 48,000 the transmission started to slip. I called a Kia dealer and the car was towed to the dealership. I was called in a couple of days that the transmission needed to be replaced because the clutch particles were in the pan. But it was not under warranty because I failed to have the transmission flushed at 30,000 and that the transmission would have to be sent back and a new one installed. The best they would do is to replace the transmission but I would have to pay for the fluid and labor which came to over $700.00.
Needless to say, I was very upset and the dealer told me if I took that attitude they would do nothing for me. I asked them why come the trans was not repaired. His answer to me was "only Kia can rebuild." We cannot even get parts and I called other transmission repair services and I was told the same thing I told them. I wanted what they found in writing and I was never given that. I have never been able to get anything under warranty. Always has been a reason why it was not under warranty. I told them that I would never buy a Kia again and I was told "you got to do what ever you got to."
