we purchased our third unit of the KIA K2700 light weight pick-up in October of 2014 as the vehicles have performed well for our business. on 29th of December 2014 the vehicle started loosing power on the road and stalled. we towed it to a safe parking awaiting Marshall's East Africa ltd the local distributor in Nairobi Kenya to resume work on 5th January 2015 as they were closed over Christmas holidays. we took in the car chassis # KNESGX71LE7814239 and engine # J2673441 to their service center on 5th Jan 2015 morning, they called us in the afternoon with a quotation amounting Ksh 50, 634.23 approximately US$ 570.00 being the cost of supplying and fitting a new Clutch assembly system as the original one had failed at 1735 kilometers ( 1, 085 miles) and their 100, 000 kms (62, 500 miles) or 3 year warranty would not cover stating user negligence. they would not consider that we have 9 vehicles in total of which 3 are the KIA K2700 being handled by seasoned drivers . we M/s House Wife's Paradise ltd are a 15 year old company and have been giving priority to purchasing KIA vehicles whenever possible. we believe that the clutch failing at merely 1735 kms is a manufacturing defect
