Kia Picanto / bad service
This is to formally file a complain regarding the Service Warranty of Kia Motors Phillippines, gorordo branch Cebu City. Last Feb 2013 we informed Kia Motors regarding the issue on car speed gauge system. It would go up and down not functioning properly. When running the car regardless of speed, the automatic break system will suddenly engage. One time i was driving trying to overtake a vehicle, the no matter how hard i step on the gas the break system won't speed up the car. Good thing the approaching car slowed down. This problem is a high risk to accident yet complaint was not treated with urgency. In fact, no proper action has been taken.
Several times the car was endorsed to Kia Service center yet the in-charge catering the issue kept promising parts arrival which never arrived until now. Four (4) months had passed we are getting the same answer - part have not arrived and maybe this week it'll be available. Every time I've asked ETA of parts I'm always given the answer maybe and again promised. One time, i had to wait whole day waiting for the car to be repaired with no sleep just to ensure it was serviced properly. Personnel in-charge informed us that a certain parts has been replaced yet the real problem was not fixed. As a service center, any customer will be under the impression that it's reliable, dependable and ensure customer satisfaction. All we've got is promises, disappointment and unsatisfactory service. One time we spoke to Warranty Head of Kia Philippines Gorordo Branch Cebu City - Viol P. Inahid stating that he will personally oversee and ensure car get fix yet still nothing happened.
Last June 11, 2013 I've called the service service asking them to notify me as to the progress of parts availability yet no call follow up or sms was even sent out.Today June 14, 2013 i called the office again 2 days after, asking to speak to the warranty head but never passed on and place the call on hold for more than 10mins the call was suddenly dropped. I've been a good payer and absolutely disappointment of the kind of service kia can provide. Ordering the parts and not knowing the exact date of arrival is unacceptable especially when parts is ordered months ago as stated by warranty personnel - Clothy.
This bad service cause a great deal of inconvenience to my end. It absolutely defeat it's purpose for i end up borrowing or taking taxi cab which cause me a great deal.
I AM NOT GOING TO SEAT AROUND SETTLE FOR BAD SERVICE AND GREAT INCONVENIENCE.
PLEASE KINDLY ADVISE HOW TO PROCEED WITH THIS COMPLAINT OR ANYONE OUT THERE WHO CAN PASS ALONG THIS COMPLAINT I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.
