Kia Motors Complaint - Sportage Electrical Short
VALLEY STREAM, NEW YORK -- I own a 2002 Kia Sportage and am now very unhappy that I even considered buying such a car which is now becoming a nightmare for me.
I have a short in the electrical system that the kia mechanics cannot locate. A fuse is being blown that is related to the dashboard lights and the switch for the headlights to turn off automatically when the engine is shut off instead the headlights stay on and discharges the battery.
Dealer #1: Replaced fuse(s) and did not resolve the problem.
Dealer #2: Replaced fuse(s) again and charged me a $28.00 fee for a car that is under warranty. Brought the car back on a Wednesday and it is now the weekend and guess what, they still don't know what the problem is.
Resolution: If the dealer can't find and fix the problem to my satisfaction, then the car should be classified as a lemon and want compensation to get a new car and let the dealer deal with the piece of crap that I bought brand new in 2002
For everyone's info on this board. Kia had a $10 Billion Dollar Debt before the creditors finally sold Kia to the highest bidder which was Hyundai who owns 51% which has been reduced to 36%.
