KIA and the Crankshaft problem.
I have relatively new LS 1.1 manual but I wish to keep it a long time. However, if the crankshaft design fault (and it clearly is a fault) is not resolved by KIA then I will have no choice but to offload it as soon as poss and buy a decent reliable european make such as citreon, peugeot, renault or vw. They are more expensive but don't have big engine design faults. Anyone know how we, as picanto owners, can pursuade KIA to sort the problem out once and for all? Otherwise the Picanto could be condemned as one of Korea's motoring failures! For the moment the car runs very well and I cannot complain but I tend to keep my cars for at least ten years and if the Picanto won't survive more than 3 or 4, I will be severely disappointed and I (I would imagine a large number of other buyers too) will not touch another KIA again!
