1999 Kia Sephia LS from North America
I bought a new car to last at least five years without repairs, bought the wrong one
After a month of ownership I had to take the car in because of a whining sound in the engine.
Windshield wiper went off the car windshield.
Power steering pump noises.
The transmission was bad and they promised to replace it, but couldn't get a new one so they rebuilt the old one and I drove it one day and heard a pop noise and now it growls down the road. When I took it in they say it is a normal noise.
There was a recall on the wiper problem so I had to take it in, the arm was overshooting this they fixed.
The brakes went out after the 12000 mile warranty, but do to poor customer service they finally agreed to fix them.
20000miles later I am having the same braking problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
