KIA Motors - Florida - Paint Chipped

Posted: 2013-10-14 by    vitalsignus
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
We just purchased a used 2011 Kia Sorento. Hubby and I checked every detail on this vehicle. The body for ripples, hood for any dents or dings. I even crawled under the car on the lot to make sure there was no rust, no corrosion. Practically climbed into the engine compartment to make sure there were no water lines, corrosion like you typically see in flood cars, etc. Drove it from the dealership in Cape Coral to Port Charlotte (two towns over). I just rinsed the car today and noticed something off about the paint. I thought it was watermarks from the rinse drying before I could wipe it with the...

KIA Motors - California, Irvine - Lack of Parts - Customer Service

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
Purchased a 2014 Kia Sorento on May 31, 2013. On the way home I was caught up in a Tornado that caused 10K in body and mechanical damage. The dealer still has the vehicle as they cannot get all the parts they need for the past 2 months. I was told by the dealer that the car is built in the US but I now find that all of the parts are in Korea...i still cannot figure that one out. Kia's website will not let you enter in all the information that is required before submitting so that is a dead end. I tried from 3 different computers. I have tried calling several people at Kia's corporate office...

KIA Motors - Virginia, Winchester - Bad Paint

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 8 votes
I bought a Kia Optima 2012 (Dark Cherry) this Summer, and in less than one month the paint had deteriorated from bird dung, insect debris and from the minimal snow flurries we had this Nov. 27th! I made Kia aware of the situation in order to exercise the suppossedly great warranty they have just to find out that they decided not to do anything about it. The Kia "Inspector" stated that the issue with the paint was "Environmental" therefore, Kia was not going to fix it! I park my vehicle next to our 2003 Kia Sorrento (a black one) and both vehicles are exposed to the same bird...

My first time purchasing a new car, and yet the worst experience EVER.
The new 2012 Kia Forte EX i purchased appears to have an Alignment defect, being that i have tsken it for service 3x. The dealership is telling me that i don't even qualify for the "Lemon Law" due to the fact that the bank has already closed and paid the funds. Point is, they will not work with me what-so-ever. Now i do know that i have consumer rights, so i am working on it...But if you are purchasing a car from this location, please Don't. All they want is your Money, AND THAT'S IT! the several...

My wife and I purchased a 2009 Kia Borrego from the Paramount Kia of Asheville North Carolina dealership for $35, 782.00 on October 16, 2009. We returned to the dealership on Friday, December 4, 2009 to sell the vehicle back (due to our dissatisfaction with it) and we were given a ballpark figure of $21, 000 as its value and were told that the used car sales manager would have to approve any re-purchase of the vehicle and also approve the amount.

We made several attempts to contact the used car sales manager (Dean Blanton) over the course of approximately a week and were not given...

I bought a used car at a Kia Dealership. The car was a 2005 Chevy Cavalier. It had 51, 000 miles on it when I bought it. The car was $1500 below bluebook value when I bought it. 4 months after I bought it I received the title and a letter from the Secretary of State Police stating that it was a salvaged vehicle and they required it to have a rebuilt statement on the title. I contacted the dealership who promised to fix the issue and get me a vehicle which wasn't previously wrecked, since I gave my old vehicle to my sister because it had been previously wrecked and had problems every couple...

KIA Motors - Does not honor it's franchises promises

We bought our Kia Sorrento on 7/29/10, with the understanding we would get as advertised, free oil changes for life.We had also asked for another key to the car as part of the deal. We were told it would be ordered and we could pick it up at first oil change. The dealership is 2 miles from our home and would have been very convenient to use. The dealership was sold out to another group but still KIA and now they won't honor the oil changes or the key request. Of course Kia says they are not responsible for what their franchise dealerships say or do. I always thought when a car dealership offered...
