KIA SEPHIA Seat Belts Front Buckle Assembly

KIA SEPHIA 1999 Seat Belts Front Buckle Assembly Report #724607

KIA SEPHIA 1999 car safety problem was reported on .KIA SEPHIA 1999, manufactured by KIA MOTORS AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SEAT BELTS:FRONT:BUCKLE ASSEMBLY . CERTIFIED CHILD SAFETY SEAT INSPECTORS WORKING FOR THE LOCAL FIRE DEPARTMENT INFORMED US THAT THE LENGTH OF THE FEMALE PORTION OF THE SEAT BELTS IN THE BACK SEAT OF OUR KIA SEPHIA ARE TOO LONG TO ALLOW AN INFANT CHILD SAFETY SEAT TO BE INSTALLED PROPERLY. THE FEMALE END OF THE SEAT BELT COMES UP INTO THE PLASTIC PORTION OF THE CAR SEAT (THEY TRIED 4 DIFFERENT MODELS OF CAR SEATS) WHICH DOES NOT ALLOW THE BELT TO BE TIGHTENED ENOUGH TO HOLD THE CAR SEAT SECURELY IN PLACE. THIS INABILITY TO INSTALL AN INFANT CAR SEAT PROPERLY IN A REAR FACING POSITION WOULD APPEAR TO BE A SAFETY DEFECT SINCE ALL THE FEMALE ENDS ARE TOO LONG TO ALLOW FOR PROPER INSTALLATION. I FEAR THAT THIS CAUSES A GRAVE SAFETY ISSUE FOR ANY FAMILY WHO HAS AN INFANT RIDING IN A CAR SEAT IN A KIA SEPHIA. WE CONTACTED KIA AND WERE TOLD THAT THE DEALERSHIP NEVER SHOULD HAVE TOLD US WE WOULD BE ABLE TO INSTALL TWO CAR SEATS IN THE BACK SEAT, ALTHOUGH THE OWNERS MANUAL STATES THAT TWO CAR SEATS CAN BE INSTALLED. WE GOT NO FURTHER HELP FROM THEM IN SOLVING THIS PROBLEM, BECAUSE THEY STATED IT WAS A DEALERSHIP ISSUE NOT A PROBLEM THAT CONCERNED THEM.*AK.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):KNAFB1214X5.

KIA SEPHIA 1999 car safety problem was reported on Sept 19, 1999.KIA SEPHIA 1999, manufactured by KIA MOTORS AMERICA, INC. had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY . SINCE I BOUGHT VEHICLE, PUMP TURNS OFF EARLY. HAD CALLED NUMEROUS TIMES TO DEALERSHIP AND MENTIONED, SAID TO BRING IT IN NEXT SERVICE. WHEN FUEL ASSEMBLY RECALLED, ASSUMED THIS WAS THE PROBLEM. WHEN IT DIDN'T, I KEPT THINKING IT WAS THE GAS STATION PUMP AND WHEN DEALERSHIP ASKED IF ANY ADDTL PROBLEMS (PITRE/THOMAS) MENTIONED, BUT THEY ASSUMED, I THINK, IT WAS PROBABLY GAS PUMP ALSO AND THAT I WAS OVERSENSITIVE. WHEN RECALLED ON 10/9 FOR FUEL INTAKE/EMISSIONS, DEALERSHIP INITIALLY SAID (SAME DAY) THAT THIS IS WHAT CAN CAUSE PUMP TO TURN OFF EARLY (RECALL PROBLEMS AND BALL, ETC), SO I ASSUMED FIXED. THAT DAY (10/9) DEALERSHIP CALLED AND TOLD ME CAR WOULD NOT BE READY TO GO HOME THAT EVENING AND WAS IN PIECES/DISASSEMBLED- THE PART WAS SUPPOSED TO COME IN, AND DIDN'T. THEY ALSO MENTIONED THEY COULDN'T PROVIDE A LOANER. I TOLD THEM TO "REASSEMBLE IT, AS I LIVE 36 MILES FROM THE DEALERSHIP AND WAS NOT GOING TO TAKE A TAXI OR BUS, ESP. WITH A WARRANTY." THEY AGREED AND STAYED LATER AND REASSEMBLED IT. WHEN I PICKED IT UP THAT EVENING, WITH A WITNESS, AND ASKED IF REASSEMBLING IT SO QUICKLY WOULD MAKE IT DANGEROUS TO DRIVE, THEY CLAIMED "WOULDN'T RECOMMEND IT, BUT SHOULD BE OKAY." WHEN IT STARTED, IT SOUNDED FUNNY. THEY SAID TO RETURN THE NEXT DAY TO FINISH THE WORK, WHICH I DID. THE SAME PROBLEMS EXISTED, SO I BROUGHT IT BACK. THE DEALERSHIP IS NOW SAYING THAT MY FUEL NECK IS ALL TWISTED AND THAT THE FUEL FILLER DOOR IS PLASTIC WHEN IT SHOULD BE MADE OF METAL, THAT THEY DIDN'T DO THIS AND CANNOT EXPLAIN WHY THESE TWO PROBLEMS. KIA CONSUMER AFFAIRS HAS BEEN CONTACTED AND OF NO ASSISTANCE (SCOTT DOWNS NOR ANY REP HAS TAKEN A CALL- ALWAYS VOICE MAIL- AND HAS NOT EVER/DOES NOT RETURN CALLS. I AM FURIOUS. THE CAR IS OBVIOUSLY ASSEMBLED WRONG AND NEITHER THE DEALERSHIPS OR KIA ARE ADDRESSING OR YET RESOLVING THE DEFECTIVE PROBLEM.*AK REFERENCED IN RQ03-006.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):KNAFB1215X5.

KIA SEPHIA 1999 car safety problem was reported on Sept 15, 2000.KIA SEPHIA 1999, manufactured by KIA MOTORS AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS:DISC . I AM THE OWNER OF A 1999 KIA SEPHIA, WHICH I PURCHASED BRAND NEW IN AUGUST OF 99. AT 14,843 MILES, I EXPERIENCED SERIOUS PROBLEMS WITH THE BRAKES. WHEN THE BRAKES ARE APPLIED AT 35 MPH, THE FRONT OF THE CAR AND THE STEERING WHEEL WOULD SHAKE OUT OF CONTROL WHEN COMING TO A STOP. THE BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS WERE REPLACED AT 14,843, BY A CERTIFIED KIA MECHANIC. SOON AFTER, ON A SEPARATE OCCASION, MY VEHICLE WAS BROUGHT IN FOR REPAIRS TO THE SAME MECHANIC FOR THE SAME PROBLEM. IN JULY OF 2001, I EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM FOR THE 3RD TIME.THE VEHICLE WAS BROUGHT IN FOR REPAIRS TO THE SAME KIA MECHANIC AND THE PADS WERE REPLACED. ON 25 OCT 01, I BROUGHT MY CAR IN AGAIN TO THE SAME KIA MECHANIC TO TEND TO THE SAME BRAKE PROBLEM. THE SERVICE DIRECTOR, STATED THAT THE BRAKES WOULD BE ADJUSTED AND THAT THE ROTORS WOULD ONCE AGAIN BE REPALCED. THE GENERAL MANAGER, SERVICE DIRECTOR AND THE OWNER WERE ALL NOTIFIED, VIA CERTIFIED LETTERS, REGARDING THE DEFECTIVE BRAKE PROBLEM WHICH I HAVE EXPERIENCED FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS. I ALSO CONTACTED KIA MOTORS OF AMERICA, CONSUMER AFFAIRS OFFICE, OF THE EXISTING PROBLEMS TO MY VEHICLE'S BRAKING SYSTEM. I WAS ASSURED BY ALL RELEVANT PARTIES INVOLVED, THAT THIS IS CONSIDERED NORMAL WEAR-AND-TEAR. THE BRAKE SYSTEM IN MY VEHICLE IS VERY UNRELIABLE AND DEFECTIVE. THE MANUFACTURER INSISTS THAT THE BRAKES IN MY VEHICLE ARE SAFE AND THAT MY CAR WOULD NOT BE REPURCHSED DUE TO MONAL WERE AND TEAR TO THE BRAKES. I AM THE OWNER OF ANOTHER MAKE AND MODEL VEHICLE WHICH IS 12 YEARS OLD. THE 12 YEAR OLD VEHICLE HAS NOT REQUIRED A BRAKE REPAIR IN OVER 4 YEARS. MY KIA IS USED TO DRIVE TO-AND-FROM WORK APPROX. 4 MILES FROM HOME. OCCASOINALLY, THE CAR IS DRIVEN ON SHORT TRIPS, BUT IT IS EVIDENT FROM THE CURRENT MILEAGE THAT THE CAR IS NOT OVERDRIVEN. A RELIABLE BRAKE SYSTEM SHOULD, ON AVERAGE, LAST LONGER THAN 6-12 MONTHS AT A TIME. QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP WAS NOT A PRIMARY CONCERN OF KIA MOTORS WHEN DESINING THEIR VEHICLES..Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):KNAFB1215X5. Kia Sephia 1999 problem was reported in BEDFORD, MA.

KIA SEPHIA 1999 car safety problem was reported on Feb 23, 2003.KIA SEPHIA 1999, manufactured by KIA MOTORS AMERICA, INC. had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY . I HAVE A 1999 KIA SEPHIA THAT WAS PURCHASED USED. AFTER CALLING THE KIA CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER I WAS INFORMED ON THE RECALL CONCERNING THE FUEL TANK . MY PERSONAL PROBLEM WITH THE FUEL TANK WAS THE "SPITTING OUT" OF FUEL WHEN ATTEMPTING TO FILL UP THE GAS TANK. I TOOK THE CAR IN TO THE COLUMBUS, GA KIA AUTOSPORT WHERE THEY FIXED THE RECALL ISSUE AND STATED THAT I SHOULD NO LONGER HAVE THE ISSUE WITH GAS RUNNING OUT WHEN TRYING TO FILL THE TANK. AFTER THE RECALL WAS FIXED, I WENT TO PUT GAS IN MY CAR AND THE ISSUE STILL EXISTED. AFTER TAKING THE CAR BACK I WAS TOLD THAT THE ISSUE HAD BEEN REPAIRED TWICE AND THE MANUFACTUERER WOULD NOT ALLOW THEM TO REPAIR AGAIN. I WAS ALSO TOLD DIFFERENT THINGS TO DO WHEN PUMPING FUEL IN ORDER TO KEEP THE PROBLEM FROM HAPPENING. THE ISSUE STILL EXISTS. THE PAINT BELOW AND AROUND THE AREA IN WHICH YOU DISPENSE FUEL IS BEGINING TO FADE AWAY DUE TO GAS RUNNING DOWN THE SIDE OF THE CAR WHEN FILLING THE TANK. THERE WAS ALSO AN ONGOING ISSUE WITH THE CAR SMOKING. THE SERVICE CENTER SAID THAT IT WAS THE SHORT BLOCK OF THE ENGINE AND REPLACED THAT, BUT THE CAR CONTINUES TO SMOKE. AFTER READING MORE ON THE RECALL I AM CURIOUS AS TO WHETHER ENGINE PROBLEMS CAN BE A AFFECT OF THE FUEL RECALL ISSUE NOT BEING PROPERLY TAKEN CARE OF. THE SERVICE CENTER NEVER CHECKED TO SEE IF THERE WERE ANOTHER ISSUE AS TO WHY THE FUEL CONTINUES TO RUN OR "SPIT" OT WHEN FILLING THE TANK. THE DATE PLACED IN "INCIDENT DATE" IS APPROXIMATE, BUT THE ISSUE IS ONGOING.*AK.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):KNAFB1214X5. Kia Sephia 1999 problem was reported in COLUMBUS, GA.

FUEL SPIT BACK FROM FILLER SPOUT: WHEN TRYING TO ADD FUEL, THE FUEL SPITS BACK OUT AT YOU. IT'S NOT JUST A LITTLE BIT, BUT ENOUGH TO SOAK YOUR CLOTHING, THE SIDE OF YOUR CAR, ETC. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE THAT IS BEING SHUNTED BY KIA CORP. ON THIS VEHICLE, THE RECALLED VALVE WAS REPLACED, THEN REPLACED AGAIN . THIS DID NOT SOLVE THE SPIT BACK PROBLEM. I CALLED KIA DIRECTLY AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM COULD BE THAT I WOULD HAVE TO BRING IT TO A KIA DEALER. I TOLD THEM THAT WITH ALL THE COMPLAINTS THAT ARE ON THIS SITE AND MOST LIKELY, MANY OTHERS, THAT THEY MUST KNOW. THEY SAID NO, BRING IT TO A DEALER. THEY ALSO TOLD ME TO LET THEM KNOW WHEN IT WOULD BE THERE AND THEY WOULD CALL THE DEALER TO VERIFY THE PROBLEM. THIS WAS A MONETARY SET UP IN MY OPINION.... I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALER, THEN THE DEALER CALLED ME AND TOLD ME THE CAR NEEDED A GAS TANK, I ASKED THEM WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THE ORIGINAL ONE. THEY TOLD ME THAT IT WAS FUNNY THAT KIA CALLED THEM FIRST THING IN THE MORNING AND TOLD THEM THAT IT NEEDED A GAS TANK. THERE IS A VALVE THAT IS MOST LIKELY TO MALFUNCTION AND THAT THERE IS NO REPAIR OTHER THAN TO REPLACE IT. A BAD VALVE DOES MAKE SENSE AND ALSO THE WAY KIA INFORMED THE DEALER OF THE PROBLEM. THEY TOLD ME THEY DIDNT KNOW , YET THEY TOLD THE DEALER THE FIX , AND ALSO, I GOT CHARGED $ 95.00 FOR 1 HOUR LABOR. THEY DID NOTHING TO THE CAR, JUST ANSWERED THE PHONE.
