Kia Motors Complaint - Scary Fuel Delivery System Issue
I have read a number of complaints about this issue on the Web and thought I should add mine since this appears to be a design flaw and not customer related as Kia defines it. This involves the fact that if the fuel tank gets regularly over filled it will cause the engine to arbitrarily shut off at different times regardless of whether you are on the highway or in the driveway. Apparently there is a valve high up in the fuel tank that gas can get into and goes into a canister that leads to the stated problem. In all cases I have read, Kia states it is the result of the consumer overfilling and not a warranty issue. Most customers, as I did, state 'we are not idiots and know better than to overfill' to no avail. Anyway, I am paying $1500 to replace the fuel tank and supporting components with no warm fuzzy that will not happen again.
