Kia Motors Complaint - Bad Transmission
PENSACOLA FL, FLORIDA -- I have only had my KIA RIO for 3 years. I bought it new and was impressed with the 10 year, 100,000 mile warranty package. However, this week, my transmission blew. Now Kia does not want to honor their warranty because I did not use the RECOMMENDED transmission fluid last time I had it changed. It was one year ago, I changed the fluid and now they are telling me that this caused the problem. Come on. For one thing, the transmission should not blow after 3 years.
For another thing, I took care of the car and they still do not want to honor it. I am wondering how many KIA owners have ran into this problem. I am not sure what to do at this point, other then make all phone calls I can and stir up as much ruckus as possible until someone from KIA can explain this to me about the quality of their vehicles. I will never buy another KIA.
Their product sucks and so do their warranties. Its a hoax to get you to buy and thats it. Very depressed and disgusted! And soon to be broke for having to buy a new transmission!!!!!!!!!!!
