THE STEPS TO "REPAIR" THE WIRING CONNECTOR ARE POOR AT BEST. TESTIMONY IN ONE CASE BY THE KIA FACTORY REP INDICATED THE RECALL WAS DONE INCORRECTLY. THIS WIRING CONNECTOR SHOULD BE REPLACED....NOT REPAIRED!! KIA CUSTOMERS ARE STILL DRIVING VEHICLES WITH A FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY AFTER HAVING THE S014 RECALL PERFORMED. PLEASE REVIEW THIS RECALL AND KIA'S PROCEDURES. THEY ARE GROSSLY INADEQUATE!!!!

KIA SPORTAGE 1999 car safety problem was reported on Apr 23, 2003.KIA SPORTAGE 1999, manufactured by KIA MOTORS AMERICA, INC. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:WIRING . I HAVE A 1999 KIA SPORTAGE. ON 23 APRIL, 2003 I ACCELERATED AFTER STOPPING AT A STOP SIGN AT AN INTERSECTION AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I HEARD A "CLUNK" SOUND COMING FROM MY TRANSMISSION, MY VEHICLE STALLED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION AND THE "HOLD" LIGHT AND THE "CHECK ENGINE" LIGHT CAME ON. I WAS ABLE TO GET THE VEHICLE MOVING AGAIN AFTER A FEW SECONDS AND AFTER CHECKING THINGS OUT IN A LOCAL PARKING LOT AND NOT SEEING ANYTHING WRONG UNDER THE HOOD I TOOK IT TO A LOCAL DEALER TO GET FIXED. THE VEHICLE WAS PUT ON THE DIAGNOSTICS MACHINE AND IT SHOWED THE P0101 CODE. THE FIX FOR THIS PROBLEM IS AROUND $500 AND MY WARRANTY DOESN'T COVER THIS PROBLEM. KIA HAS A BULLETIN ON HOW TO FIX THIS PROBLEM, SO THEY ARE AWARE THAT THIS PROBLEM EXISTS. I CALLED KIA ABOUT THE PROBLEM AND THE PERSON I SPOKE WITH WAS VERY RUDE AND REFUSED TO LISTEN TO MY COMPLAINT AND TOLD ME IT'S MY PROBLEM, THERE'S NOTHING THEY CAN DO AND THIS PROBLEM ISN'T A RECALL BECAUSE IT'S NOT A SAFETY CONCERN. I DON'T SEE HOW IT'S NOT A SAFETY CONCERN WHEN MY VEHICLE STALLED IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION! ALSO, $500 IS A LOT OF MONEY ESPECIALLY WHEN WARRANTY'S DON'T COVER IT. EVERYBODY FROM THE WARRANTY COMPANY AND THE DEALER HAVE ALL TOLD ME THAT THIS SHOULD BE A SAFETY CONCERN, THUS SHOULD BE A RECALL. THE FOLKS AT THE WARRANTY COMPANY SAID THAT ABOUT 95% OF THE PEOPLE THAT CALL IN WITH THIS TYPE OF VEHICLE ARE CALLING IN ABOUT THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM.

KIA SPORTAGE 1999 Fuel System, Gasoline Report #10254820

KIA SPORTAGE 1999 car safety problem was reported on Jan 02, 2009.KIA SPORTAGE 1999, manufactured by HYUNDAI-KIA AMERICA TECHNICAL CENTER INC had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . ON DECEMBER 22, 2008, DURING VEHICLE INSPECTION, FOUND GAS SMELL AND POSSIBLE LEAK IN GAS TANK. PHONE KIA DEALERSHIP, AND THEY INDICATED THAT THERE WAS A SERVICE CAMPAIGN, AND TO BRING THE VEHICLE IN FOR A FUEL TANK INSPECTION (ALONG WITH SOME OTHER RECALL REPAIRS). ON 1/2/2009, THE VEHICLE WAS INSPECTED BY THE KIA DEALERSHIP, AND THEY INDICATED THAT THE FUEL TANK WAS LEAKING FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE TANK, AND THAT THIS WAS A KNOWN ISSUE AND MAY BE COVERED BY A SERVICE CAMPAIGN. HOWEVER, THE MILEAGE ON THE VEHICLE WAS 137,700 MILES, AND THE LIMIT WAS 130,000 FOR KIA TO REIMBURSE. I INDICATED THAT I HAD NEVER RECEIVED AN NOTICE OF THIS PROBLEM. FURTHER INVESTIGATION SHOWED THAT THERE WERE AT LEAST TWO (2) SERVICE CAMPAIGNS (SC059 AND RB001) WHICH DATED BACK TO MAY 2006, AND JANUARY 2008. HAD I BEEN NOTIFIED, THE VEHICLE WOULD HAVE HAD MUCH LESS THAN THE LIMIT OF 130,000 MILES. I PHONED AND E-MAILED CUSTOMER SUPPORT (NO MAILING ADDRESS LISTED). DURING THE PHONE CONVERSATION WITH STEVE, I WAS INFORMED "TOO BAD, BUT IT IS OUT OF THE MILEAGE LIMIT AND THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO. NOT SURE WHY YOU NEVER GOT A NOTICE". WHEN I E-MAILED, I RECEIVED A PHONE REPLY (AFTER THE SECOND E-MAIL) FROM STEVE STATING "WE ALREADY DISCUSSED THIS. NOT SURE WHY YOU E-MAILED SINCE THIS WAS ALREADY ADDRESSED". I FEEL THAT A PROBLEM AS IMPORTANT AS A LEAKING FUEL TANK SHOULD NOT BE LEFT TO CHANCE, WAITING FOR A REGULAR INSPECTION OR AN ACTUAL LEAK TO DETECT IT. I FEEL THAT KIA SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR A RECALL, AND SHOULD ALSO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COST OF THE REPAIR. CURRENTLY I HAVE REPAIRED THE TANK, WHILE LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT TANK. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 137700 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):KNDJA7233X5.
