Kia Motors Complaint - Kia's cars suck and they discriminate
HAMBURG, NEW YORK -- I am a 21 year old female. I bought this car when I was 20 and it is my first car. I had also bought this car new. About six days after I bought the piece of junk I didn't want it any more. I thought that there was something wrong with the car. I know a little bit about cars but I can't fix one. It turns out my car has a bad transmission sensor (automatic)which meens that the car doesn't know when to shifts right. The funny thing is that Kia and the dealer I bought it from can't figure out what is wrong with it. I have been fighting both companies since I bought it. I even got into an accident at my local car wash because the car would not go into neutral. After the accident I stepped up my fighting. A couple days after that I got a call on April 7, 2005 from a rep from Kia Motors and he started to yell at me telling me that Kia doesn't want to do anything to make me happy. I was shocked because of this treatment. I feel that I got taken advantage of because of who I am. Now I have a car that is "the walking dead" with a bad transmission. The car's engine is now shot because it has been running for a year and a half with a bad transmission. So even if Kia does actually fix my transmission the car is still screwed. The whole car is going to end up dying because of te condition it is driving in right now. My whole reason for doing this is that I had my car in for service and I get treated like some dumb stupid little girl who knows nothing about cars. This car company called me upto harass and yell at me on the phone and why would i want to do business with this company let alone drive this car.
******AS OF MARCH 31, 2006 KIA MOTORS AMRERICA JUST RECONIZED THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH MY CAR. THE BEST PART IS THAT KIA DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO FIX MY CAR.
I plan on going to the State of NY or The US dept of transportation and force Kia Motors to buyback my car because they don't know how to fix it.
*******MAY 25, 2006 KIA IS STILL DOING NOTHING ABOUT THE PROBLEMS WITH MY CAR BUT A LOCAL TV STATION WANTS TO RUN A STORY ON THIS CAR ANS THIS WHOLE SITUATION THAT HAVE BEEN THROUGH!!!!!!!!!!
