You didnt get the oil changed Ever did ya OP? quit frontinggg
If someone told me the thing between me and 9k is some damn receipts.... im at jiffy lube right nowww
Paying 38k for any vehicle is absurd. 9k for a kia engine... absurd. I litterally traded my g35 w/ 90k miles in damn good condition for less than theyre trying to charge you for a kia engine replacement
Let this be a lesson younger brethren.
7 year loans. Absurd
Paying more than 15 racks for a KIA. Absurd
Serious question... how at 35k budget did you get talked into the KIA? You litterally coulda bought a tesla if it was about the tech/fuel economy. Or you coulda get pretty much any slightly used luxury sedan... Or like a subie sti... all of those vehicles was still be worth 2x,xxx.
