Review

I have had so many poblems with this
car. I bought it new in 97. At 800
miles the catalstic converter blew up
causing the underside to catch fire,
and all wiring had to be replaced. At
12,000. their was a horrible exhaust
leak which after 4 trips to the dealer
for repair ended my family in the
hospital with a 24% oxygen rate in the
blood. Kia would not stand behind
their product even when contacted by
my attorny. The belts always squeek
and their has been a bad engine lifter
since day one. Locks, and windows
have never worked correctly since day
one. I have givin up and have never
been able to get kia to fix the
problems.
