The only reason I came back here on this issue is that I hoped someone else shared my problem. I found others on this forum and other ones.
I came from German/Japanese cars and thought this company had turned a new page woth exciting designs and great value. I gave it a shot ... oh well you live you learn....
In Kia's defense I have not contacted the manufacturer... only dealerships (5 of them)... I just don't have the time for this, and am discouraged.
Sounds like some of you Canadian guys are stuck with seriously incompetent or just plain bad dealerships. This is NOT normal behavior and I don't see many reports here of similar issues. While I can understand your frustration, I don't see this as common or "acceptable" with Kias.
Contact Kia corporate and complain about your poor dealership experience with troubleshooting a mechanical problem with your new car. Not sure what you hope to accomplish by venting here.
