Forte 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,000 miles
The contact owns a 2016 Kia Forte. The contact stated that there was no spare tire from the initial purchase of the vehicle. In addition, while driving, there was an abnormal noise that progressed under the vehicle. The rear driver's side tire prematurely fractured. The dealer (classic Chevrolet, 1-(888) 981-6002) had been unable to determine what caused the failure and replaced the tire. The manufacturer was notified after the failure occurred. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 38,000.
