Niketalk, I Can Not In Good Conscience Recommend One Purchase Any Model KIA Motor Vehicle vol not one bit - Page 3

Then you answered your own question, didn't you. And dealership oil changes aren't free, or at least the local one here isn't. IDK what everyone else is doing. I'll be ok. Not going to take their "deal" trading me back into a new KIA. If none of these other leads go anywhere, I'll just get something and pay up on it and life goes on, should be approaching even on it in 5yrs or so or close enough to where I can eat whatever difference there is there if I want to trade into something else or just pay it off and get a 2nd. Probably only lose a week more of a sleep over it but no back button in life so whatever.

Still not understanding how you can't get all your service records from JL. You could ONLY get 1? How? They have to turn them over to you....that is if you're being forthright about this situation. You're saying what you're saying, but I still can't help to think that there is more to it....

So you actually never did keep up with the oil changes?

I think he's saying he  wasn't getting his car serviced regularly so there was only one on file?

If that's the case, what leg does he have to stand on w/ kia? Like, you expect to have a smooth running engine if you've only had one oil change after 40k miles?

Dude has made so many poor decisions regarding this car it is truly amazing
post #70 of 210

Sweatergod if I ever see car stories on here when you finally get a new whip.....

 

Bottom line is this:  sounds like you didn't follow the warranty procedures, like many people.  Maintenance has to be kept up according to the car's maintenance schedule, and you either do it at the dealership or have a certified third party do the work (and keep the receipts).  Hell, keep the receipts from the dealership, too.  Always keep receipts.  If you really only got 1 oil change in 40k miles, kiss that $9k goodbye.  

 

This Optima saga may be the most outlandish financial scenario I've ever seen on NT. :lol  So many poor decisions from a grown *** man.

They lowered the price in subsequent years (mine is a 2015) probably to compensate for their ****** reputation which leads to incredible depreciation, far moreso than other brands.

So I;m going to throw lots of numbers out but yea I paid around $38k for it on a 7yr loan. $468 a month or something. I drive a lot so with 40k miles on it already, KBB says it is worth 13.5k. So I still have $28k left (bought it in June 2025), have about 39k miles. A few days ago my engine light schedule service comes on and it starts knocking hard. I dropped it off at the dealership and scheduled an appointment and got a rental. They couldn't get it in for about a week but sure enough, they call me back and tell me it needs a new engine. "Cool, handle that. It's under warranty." Well since I hadn't been getting my maintanence done through them they ask if I have receipts for all the maintenance I have ever had done. Nah not really. Well it's going to be $9,000 plus labor. Called KIA and one of their Escalated Dispute Affairs or whatever people echoed the same.

So that would put me at owing $36k on it, but would tank the value (because of a replaced engine and voided warranty) to about $9k sick.gif and put me ~$46.5k in. So I'm down over 80% in less than 2 yrs and still have to pay on it for 5 and a half. .

The dealership called back acting like they were helping me out making a deal, they just throwing me offers that obviously are carrying over that massive negative equity, so I can pay more per month for 7 more years and get the base version which is like under 20 and be stuck with them for 7 more years.

At this point, I could just let it get repoed and get something new before the repo hits my credit since I'm going to be screwed for the next 7 yrs anyways. Might as well be riding clean. Either 7 years massively overpaying for a Kia or 7 years with bad credit. Then with me working for the Government with a Secret there's the aspect of how that affects my clearance status.

There's some class action suits out there on this exact engine turns out and apparently they do this often with the warranty shirkin. So I'm preliminarily talking to some lawyers, but I am stuck like Chuck for now pushing my mom's Malibu






Did you but that warranty I am sure you were offered when you finance?

0 chance I am going to get back into the same whip. Now he changed the deal to be $4 more a month for 72 (so it'd be paid off 8 months alter than og would) to get me into a new EX minus the hybrid. Preferable even to them fixing the same car if they did it for free really. But I'd still rather have an SUV or big car from another brand so I'll take my negative equity elsewhere.

Gap? Yea I have gap. That's where the kick it in a river, set it on fire, leave it in the hood running with the doors open jokes come from.

But I don't think auto theft is big here. I'd have to go to bigger city and even still it's a hybrid. It doesn't make any noise when it's on and idling so kats wouldn't even know to jump in and drive off. They'd probably just fiddle around looking for some money. I'd look like Jerry Seinfeld trying to get rid of the stinky BMW

They can't void the warranty because you didn't use them to change your oil. (magnussen moss act)

 

They can void it if you didn't change oil every 5000 miles. 

 

Like 86% of cars will do 200k miles no problem with just daily driving to keep it lubricated and regular oil changes. Car owners who don't do their oil changes make me sick and are the number 1 reason cars on craigslist are a crapshoot for needing engine overhaul.

My son here did 1 oil change in 40k miles.

Had you got a warranty (not the factory limited b.s.) you wouldn't have to come out of pocket a dime....

I think he would have voided that warranty too.

Dog, do you even car? It doesn't seem like you've done a single bit of research before or after buying this car.
post #81 of 210
Only way your engine would seize up is, if you never changed the oil since you got it or basically 20k miles maybe more or less

Or last time you got the oil changed someone screwed up and put the wrong oil or maybe didn't fil it all the way or the filter etc

Cars don't seize up randomly especially at 40k if you have been getting the oil changed regularly.

Every 3k miles is OD. Idk about hybrids but 5-6k is completely fine without an issue, could even stretch another 1k easily and be fine.

So if you've gotten 5 oil changes then you've basically been doing it every 7k miles? Maybe you missed one? Maybe going on longer without the oil changed

I'm not blaming jiffy but maybe you've been ignoring the oil changes or something

^ On newer cars isn't the interval between oil changes dumb long? I know w/ my '15 Passat scheduled oil changes are every 10k miles or when my car tells me. Either way, if you've done 1 w/ 40k on the clock, RIP engine. laugh.gif
post #83 of 210
Technically the manual will say about 3-5k

But yes oil and engines have changed and technically you could go longer especially depending on the oil used. And yes I've heard people going 10k between oil changes with no issues.

I've gone a long time without an issue, roughly 7k then got worried and changed it. Guy commented that it was starting to get bad but insisted I was fine after changing it and if I had drove a few more thousand miles then I would have ran into issues.

But if you go to jiffy lube or any of these places, they keep you VIN and account on file so I'm calling BS on them only finding one receipt when if you even went to the same one or a diff one everytime, they would have all you Info saved and each time you purchased an oil change, vehicle, and the oil used

I'm sure you could get an engine from a breaker and have it fitted by an independent garage for way less than $9k. Tougher as it's the hybrid but there must be some damaged cars out there.

Then change your oil. 3-5k seems excessive (only people I know changing their oil that frequently are in the US where their seems to be a market for that) but definitely every year or 8k. That makes more sense to me than sinking your money into something else.
