I’ve have had my 2009 Kia Rio5 for over 2 years and have less than 7,000 miles meaning that I dont drive it a lot. Well recently my brakes began to make this loud squealing noise whenever I used them. I knew that I had not used the car enough to have worn out my brake pads so I took it to a Kia dealership. I was told that it was not the brake pads but that the rotors had developed a “glaze” and the necessary repairs had been made. Less than a month later the noise started again and so I took the car back to the dealership again.
This time I was told that some dirt had entered the rotors. This time the dirt was supposedly cleaned out and a lubricant added. Once again the noise came back. This time I took the car to a mechanic who told me that the Kia just has bad brakes and that it would keep happening. I ended up having the mechanic just replace my brakes entirely. This is my first and last Kia ever.
Then the seat belt on my daughters 2004 Kia Sedona broke recently when my 8 year old grandson tryed to hook it.Not the belt itself ,but the latch that is mounted to the floor. I noticed that it is made from a steel cable.(the cable was broken in half) I asked the dealership if it would be considered a safety recall issue(even though it is out of warranty)they told me no and that the new seat belts were now made out of nylon and I could replace it for around $80.00.
That would mean I would have to replace all of them at my expense.I feel that this is definitely a safety issue and should be taken care of by KIA. Has there been a recall I’m not aware of ? If< God forbid, there was an accident and the cable on these belts can break that easily,then I’m afraid of what the outcome might be. Please contact me as to what can be done about this.
