Spoon Sports 3/17/2012I doubt its the rotors because if that was the case, you should feel vibration in the steering wheel. Could it be after only 3 years, air has gone to your brake system which prevents you from braking?
You know what, heres the deal, obviously i cannot help you find the problem, i can just give you my 2 cents worth HOWEVER, i can assist you with the procedure.
SO, go to your stealership and get a second opinion, then post it here.
How long is your warranty anyway?
I have a 2010 Forte. 31,440 miles. Since 2/12/12, I've been having a problemw With my car. I'll park it the normal way I always park it. Then sporadically I am unable to restart my car. I'll get the initial start up sound but the engine won't start and radio and lights won't turn on. The first 4 times this has happened, I was able to turn my car on by trying to turn it on for about 5-10 minutes which only sounds like it's going to worsen the car in the near future. I thought that was RIDICULOUS! I was told my 3 mechanics including the one contracted through KIA that my battery was fine. So what was the problem?
On 3/9/12, I had brought my car to the KIA service in the Bronx, NY and was told they could not find the problem I was complaining about. They had my car for 6 hrs and said they did all the necessary testing and found nothing wrong with my car and asked me to pick it up. I did just that. The following day, I was unable to start my car as I just finished shopping with my family and had shopping bags ready to go home parked on a busy street. Therefore I was stranded, had to call roadside assistance who then towed my car back to KIA service in the bronx who was closed t the time so I had to wait until Monday for them to diagnose it. They had then seen the problem I was seeing and was unable to restart my car. The next day, they were able to restart it, did testing and still COULD NOT FIGURE OUT WHY MY CAR SPORADICALLY DOESN'T START and how they can fix the problem. They had my car for 4 days. Still no resolution or even real problem they could find. They reached out to the Kia Hotline for an expert which advised them the computer wasn't picking up a problem and that I would have to pick my car back up and if the problem occurs again, have it towed because they can't do anything further unless it's a consistent problem. It's happened 7 times. Not including out of state, 4 hours from my home! I've been explaining this to them for a month now. What the heck kind of customer service is this? So Kia is basically telling me, I'd have to get stranded and be heavily inconvenienced in order for them to find out what the heck is wrong with my car?!! How freakin' rude???!!!!!!!!! I'm so fed up with them it's a shame! The service thinks it’s a problem with my starter. But if the KIA computer doesn't detect this problem there's nothing that the contracted service tech can do.
I have to hope my car will start correctly in a few days so I can drive it to my dealer which is out of state. They want their service people to take a look at it. I just want out of my lease. I am paying for a lease and haven't comfortably used my car in 5 weeks. I'm afraid to travel anywhere and park. This is nonsense.
