Kia Motors Informative - YOUR IN DANGER IF YOU DRIVE A KIA!!!!
CENTRAL, NEW JERSEY -- I just hit 54,000 miles and the car started bucking so bad I couldnt control the car.I brought it to the dealership, they call me to tell they want to fix everything but the problem. They mention I need brakes $235, than they tell me the bucking is my plugs$wires that will be $135. I replace it. 1 week later its back at the dealership the bucking never stopped.Than then replied to me the engine and electrical system were perfect(including the plugs & wires) I needed a new Clutch $650. I asked for a guarantee he WOULDN'T give me one. I asked him if the car was safe and told yes nothing would happen except maybe slipping out of gear (which it never does or ever has) 1 week later I am driving down the road (still bucking) and the car looses control, I lose the throttle, stearing everything, the pedal was useless, my brakes useless. I had it towed to a different Kia dealership. Their response...PLUGS & WIRES!!!! They refused to touch the car unless I paid them $180 for plugs & wires and than $80 for them to look at it. I contacted Kia consumer relations and their response "thats your choice". Its the worst company, I was ripped off and anyone who has a kia is in danger!!! I towed it to a REAL mechanic and he fixed the problem $250 later. It was a warranty issue also it was my throttle postition sensor, I could have been killed or killed someone else BEWARE!!!!
