This car is a piece of junk!!!
This is a true lemon. I would never recommend this car to anyone. I have never had as much trouble with any other car and this one's only a year old.
The radio was replaced, the oxygen sensor was replaced and the exhaust shield was removed because it caused a rattling noise.
The 4-wheel drive was fixed in January and it was broken again in February. They can't fix it so I have to drive around in the middle of winter with no 4-wheel drive. It's extremely unsafe. I found out the 4-wheel drive was broken again the hard way - during a snowstorm.
All the dealership can say is that they replaced the parts and don't know they can't get it working. I asked for a rental car to use until it was fixed and they said Kia has decided that as long as I can start the car up it's drivable. They have no concern for safety.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
