2016 Kia Sportage 2.4l v6 Awd
For my 2016 Sportage, I was driving on the highway last week and my car slowed down and wouldn’t let me accelerate. The check engine light, oil and battery light came on. I was able to pull over and park the car but it wouldn’t start again. Had it towed to the nearest Kia dealer. I verified in my records that I had the ksds update done after getting the recall notice in 2018. The tech said the engine seized but that no codes came up when he did the diagnostics so they won’t put in a tech ticket to Kia corporate since the code p1326 didn’t show up. They are putting in a claim through my extended warranty. My thoughts after reading the class action settlement legal docs are that it never specifically states that the p1326 code has to show. Anybody have this same issue and was able to get the engine replaced cua the lifetime warranty?
