I have a 2012 Kia Rio. I started to hear what I refer to as a "rattle can" noise from the engine compartment about a month ago. It is a constant rattle during acceleration at any speed. When I put it in park and rev up the engine there is no noise.
The first time I took it in I was told it was most likely a "spark knock" and I probably got bad gas. I was told to run it out of that gas and run another tank through.
After two more tanks I still get the same rattle so I take it back in. They had the car for a week and could still not fix it. I've now been turned over to the engineering department. They now say it most likely needs a software update between the engine and transmission. They say that it's fine to drive and I am driving it.
I am so upset and am thinking about looking into the lemon law in my state to see if there is anything I can do on that front.
Has anyone heard about this issue before?
