Kia Motors Complaint - Timing Belt - 2005 Kia Rio
2005 Kia Rio - Complaint
OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON -- Hello All,
I think I'm ready to give up before I get started. I have a two year old Kia that last Tuesday blew the engine. Had it towed to the nearest Kia dealership (30 minutes away) Only to be told that the timing belt broke and blew the engine it has 65,000 miles on it. I have diligently taken care of this car, oil changes every 3000 miles etc. Replaced all the tires, almost from the minute we drove it off the lot the tires would randomly go flat. Any hoot, the local dealership told me the timing belt was broke and not under warranty. BS. Instead of paying another 6 grand for a piece of crap, I bought a Toyota on Friday. So today we rent a car trailer head the the dealer to pick up the car. They left our car in pieces, we opened the hood and low and behold the timing belt is not broken it's missing some teeth.
Now I'm scratching my head but my hubby is thinking we've been screwed by Kia yet again. The tech tells us the teeth rubbed off when the belt froze. Well in order for the belt to freeze doesn't something have to break first. We are getting an attorney and fighting Kia. For the techs out there that work for Kia and your response to people having issues with them is it's neglect and abuse, I say BS To you too, Kia is a horrible company that makes a killing off of people that can't afford to purchase a higher end vehicle way to Screw the little guy.
We get to make payments on cars that are useless.. Apparently so is the company Kia..
