Kia Motors Complaint - Kia's aren't made to last
OLATHE, KANSAS -- I was finally in a place to buy a new car. I had always bought used cars in the past. I chose a 2001 Kia Sportage with the 100,000 mile/10 year warranty. I loved my Kia, that is until it hit 100,000. I took better care of this car than I ever did any other. I did all the required service, oil changes etc. I wanted it to last me for years, I had no reason to think it wouldn't as well as I took care of it, but in the past 6 months since it hit 100,000 miles I have had to replace the engine, the drivers side door handle broke off in my hand. Now when I try to go to the bank and roll down the window the door pops open. The passenger (drivers side) door lock doesn't work, nor will the window roll down, the latch to spring the tire out to open the back door has broken, I can no longer use the back of the car from groceries and storage. I keep wondering whats next. The car is falling apart around me and I haven't even finished paying for it. The used cars I had in the past lasted me 10 years of more and had 250,000 miles on them, the most I ever had break on one of them was to replace a clutch in one. I will never buy a Kia again.
