problem #2

Feb 012017

Soul ES 3.2L

  • Manual transmission
  • 95,000 miles

My car has been in the shop at Kia for the fuel system pumps, twice. The shop said they had to replace something to do with the fuel system underneath the seat the 2nd, those 2 trips roughly 2500 bucks. Replaced both censors twice on the car another 1000 to 1500 and now the Goddam car sensors are messing up again for the 3rd damn time and the fuel mileage is crap just like it was before I replaced the car pump the first time.

This car is a HUGE piece of sh*t and I wouldn't piss on it to put out the flames if it was on fire. Seriously a lemon. Also one of the parts for the pump and the top of the engine they made me pay for twice because they claim they couldn't reuse it which was another roughly $150 a pop.

Someone needs to create a huge lawsuit against Kia cause their cars are sh*tty and the parts should last more than 6 months to a year when you replace them. Within a years damn time 5 trips to the shop for the same damn sh*t!
