    Hi, I recently had to get some work done on my 2008 Koa Spectra and this mechanic ended up being a rip off. He basically returned my car to me with the head, all the belts, cams, a bucket of nuts, bolts and the cam caps all in the trunk of my car. I plan on trying to sue this guy. But I have...

    I'm looking for a new-to-me car and found this 2016 Forte5 that I like. I'm new to Kia's so I did some research and found the engine issues but only for 2011-2014 Theta II engines. I saw a few posts about the 2015-2016 engines having the same engine failures, but you can find that on any car...
