I think we can all agree that there is a failure percent that is unacceptable to each of us...be it 0.1%, 1%, 10%, or 100%. But since we don't know the number of failures in this case, I think it is unreasonable to not use/keep a fully functional vehicle, IMO of course. I would bet that 99% of Kia owners are not on a forum and would never even know of the failures unless it happened to them. We are just more informed and maybe do ourselves in this way.

The toaster on my counter is also photographed on Amazon as a piece of shit house burner. But although I don't doubt the photo, I have no idea of the failure rate there either and mine is toasting fine...for now

Well, I am using the car as usual and if the problem arises, I guess we'll get a divorce as the husband who didn't listen to the wife......

So, again, is the consensus is to get this done? Does any warranty stay in effect if you don't get it done?

Don't have any confirmation, but I'm pretty certain that warranty is the same as those that have it done, ...... I believe the main objective of the update is to avoid the catastrophic failure and potential fire risk associated with that, for those that can't detect that something going wrong.

Being married is living life on the edge! Even though I do not have the Sportage any more (need to change my signature) I still plan on visiting the forum. If Kia gets this issue behind them my wife said she will definitely look at the Sportage when she is ready to trade in her CR-V.

Indeed. They have a far higher failure rate than even a Pinto :P

Not sure if this is old news, but this was just posted today on one of our local news channels website.

That's a new one, and covers the smaller engine the 1.6 used in the small cars and the soul. That was something I had not heard about issues with until now.

At the same time, they are also recalling some tucson and sportage models due to some sort of oil pan leak, which is leading to some engine fires.

A lot to process there.
