Kia Motors Complaint - Low Quality Cheap Garbage
If you are thinking of buying a Kia-read this first, and then run!! I have a 2007 Kia Sorento. At 12k it got a new motor-it has had 4 factory recalls-it has had 3 new rear differentials, not including the original- and is still not fixed because they cannot fix it. They replaced the drive shaft-then took it out. Then they replaced the 4 wheel drive--this did nothing--the a/c compressor has been replaced and a window motor and regulator have been replaced. All this and more before 30k miles. Now Kia motors-not the dealers--are saying that the banging and clunking noise created when you shift gears is normal--it may be "normal" for a Kia but is not normal for other auto makers...I test drove many others and not one made these noises. I also drove another Kia and it did not make noise. I have been advised that the rear differentials are mismanufactured and Kia has sent them to an outside repair shop to try to fix the issue. They are still no good. Here is the deal---Kias are cheap junk and you will pay plenty before they are done with you--they have no interest in honoring the warranty and will try to run it out. When you try to sell it you will loose your shirt as their reputation is coming out and maybe it is time for a class action lawsuit.
Don't hesitate to call a lawyer if you are getting kicked around as you may have legal recourse in your state and Kia will have to pay the lawyer. Google "lemon law" in your area and you should get a lawyer or two who specialize in consumer complaints. Do your friends a favor and warn them about Kia and don't let them bully you --you have rights--
