Well I find it incredibly sad my beautiful KIA experience of just on 2 years is soiled/ruined by the KIA Customer Service experience.
Don't get me wrong here, the salesman/yard are accommodating and why not, they made their money. The service staff too try their very best it seems but this map fiasco leaves me really disheartened.
Truly, I was considering a new model but told today by the Customer Service Manager that the new models still use the same GPS/map data base and it will likely be December 2019 if, read it again, if we see map updates available and we have to pay. What a crying joke and simply beyond belief.
KIA Australia, indeed globally, if you can't fix this you will loose market share, that I am near certain. Fix it for goodness sake.
Can only agree Whiskey. This is a B-grade effort by a maker trying to increase their popularity in the Oz market.
No real problem with sales, service or PR
from my dealership . . . but KIA Customer Service(?) is non existent. Someone needs to remind them that word of mouth is still the BEST form of advertising, not sponsoring a tennis tournament, football team, or whatever.
Simply can't sell a car with a fitting that doesn't work, then try to charge the buyer to fix it, and expect them to be happy enough to be a return buyer.
Wife's Rio is coming due for update consideration, and seriously wonder about the direction we will take.
