I don't believe mine has acted up sense the replacement
You're lucky then. For everyone else who isn't so fortunate to have an inside man, you're pretty much stuck with dealing with people who want to screw you. Whether it's the dealer's bottom line or Kia's HQ's bottom line; someone has to pay out.The last part there is the dealer being idiots. Don't put up with that.... my dealer is very good and will set me up with any car on the lot pretty much or they have courtesy cars. Also my salesman is a good friend of mine so I just send him a text anytime I have a question or need to book cars in for service. He books appointment for me. Sets me up with car of choice. Also for lights there's a guy that is a high up manager working on the problem. Making phone calls to kia and speaking with his foreman and they have a few cars on lot with that problem. He said they could change my lights but there's no fix for it. Might work, might not. So I said I'll bring my car in once they find a fix. Also for German engineering, I agree but be prepared to spend more money on the car and on maintenance. Kia gives you value/bang for buck. Overall they are pretty decent cars....
NoKia has 10-15 different models of cars, all of which have different trim levels as well, they are suppose to have every single part on the car on hand? Where are you from anyways? Do you get lots of snow? In other thread you were taking about heater taking a long time to warm the car up, but if you get lots of snow, have fun with the mustang or 370z....
