    Re: Unprofessional salesman

    Tom, the engine in the 2015 model that I started did not quit; I shut it down upon hearing a loud “metal-to-metal” sound when it started. Although the 2015 engine was not included in the recall it’s...

    After I completed the resto of my 6 I also longed for 5th gear. Two years later a call to Herman (HVDA) and I’m lovin the ride.

    Re: Unprofessional salesman

    I'm sure every company has its problems but to me the worth of a company is not the problems, but rather how they address and fix them. In the case of Kia, they denied many, many owners trying to get...

    I absolutely agree with you JP BUT in this case I firmly believe that the guy attempting to sell me the car did so with complete knowledge of the engine problem... He knew it, he definitely knew it...

    Unfortunately, there are too many uninformed people who will buy that car without ever investing its background and then suffer the burden of getting a new engine.
