Looking at moving to Northern Minnesota. Just realized that the nearest dealer is down in Duluth. Roughly a 2 hour drive. (I am used to driving 15-30 mins to a dealer). What worries me is that if I have any major problems is costs of getting my Kia there, getting back home if its going to take days to fix, and getting back to pick it up. I never really thought about this before. This may make me either consider just buying an older vehicle out of warranty or just buying another brand that has a dealer closer to where I will be living. I have had a Sorento for a little over a year and i like it but have no problem switching brands if possible warranty work is going to become a hassle. Any thoughts on this?
