Any updates to the gas tank saga?
#9 of 29 it's been fixed
Sep 06, 2007 (5:27 am)
So it took Kia 3 months to fix my car. It took them 3 months, completely replacing the gas tank, a corporate tech guy to completely taking my car apart to find what was wrong. They looked down into the gas tank neck and you won't believe what they found....cocoons...yes bug cocoons blocking the filter. You would think they would of looked down there the first time I brought the car in. so now the questions is how the hell did a bug get in there?? Do I have some weird Korean bug running around in my car or my yard??

Only if they survived being doused with gasoline. Interesting conclusion to the story.
#11 of 29 Having problem with Check engine light
Nov 25, 2007 (4:44 pm)
Anyone having a problem with the check engine light? My rondo was in the shop or 3 weeks for a light collison/body work, in which the gas tank was replace and for some reason the CEL keeps coming on. Can anyone help me out
#12 of 29 CEL
Jan 03, 2008 (2:58 pm)
My CEL came on one day about 2 wks ago. I checked the gas cap and it was tight, but I decided to add a few gallons of gas and retighten it. The CEL went off right away and has not been back on since.
My former 1998 Legacy wagon (2.2L 4 cyl) was really sensitive to how tight the gas cap was on - anything less than 3 "clicks" of the cap, and the CEL was on for days.

my KIA salesman, recommended 3 wrist flicks when tighten the cap after getting fuel and so far no problem on my 2008 Rondo.
#14 of 29 check engine lite
Dec 31, 2009 (6:15 pm)
I stopped and got gas on 12/23/09 and after I got gas my car acted like it didn't want to crank. On the 12/24/09 my check engine light came on, took it to the KIA dealership to get it looked at and the code that came up was PO441. This is sumthing dealing with the EVAP system. The dealership told me that my Purge Control Valve needed to replaced. They erased the code and the engine light went off. On Sunday 12/27/09, went to take family home and before I returned home got gas. After getting gas car spudded like it was out of gas, so I pulled over cut car off and cranked it back up it was fine but check engine light was still on. After work on Monday, I went to Auto Zone to get it checked again and codes PO441 and PO300 came up. The guy Auto Zone told me that one code may be causing the other codes so that guy erased the codes and check engine light went off. I was off work on Tuesday and drove the car the whole day and the check engine light never came on, but Wednesday morning went to crank car for work and the light was on. I'm really in need of some answers to what may be wrong with my car, it's a 2008 KIA Rondo.
#15 of 29 2008 Kia Rondo EX Problems with Fuel System
Nov 24, 2010 (8:26 am)
I have had my car at the dealership atleast 4 times in the last two months for problems with my fuel system. First they said it was a sensor. Then it was the gas cap. Now its the fule tank pressure switch. It's funny that all of these problems are coming up right near the end of my warranty. I'm starting to think that KIAs are just a pile of junk. I really wish that I would have stuck with my 07 Honda Accord. Had it for two years and never had a problem. I have had this piece of crap for a year and a half and I have had more problems with it than any other car I have owned in the last 12 yrs.
Can anyone give me an idea of what I can do?

Um, am I missing something? "Near the end of my warranty"? So the car is still under warranty? Isn't it GOOD that these things are occurring with the warranty still in effect? And you are calling Kia's "a pile of junk" since your car has had a fuel system problem? Kind of a blanket statement there dude.
You give us no information, no details. What's the problem with the fuel system? How is it affecting the car?
And you honestly did not have a problem with the 07 Honda? Not one? My Honda (granted, it was a 91 Civic Si that I bought new) was a lemon. Shiver, I don't even want to think about that piece of crap. But I don't think all Hondas are a piece of crap just since my Honda was bad. Sheesh.

No I never had any problems with Honda. Actually my ex has a 1990 Acura Integra that has about 230,000 miles on it and the only problems he has ever had are your standard wear and tear problems. Ya it's GOOD that I am having problems with my car during my warranty time. the problem that I am having with that tho is there is 2500 miles left to my warranty and I have been at the dealership 6 times in the last 2 months, so at that rate I will still be going to the dealership well past my warranty if they don't fix the problem asap. The problem I am having with the fuel system is it keeps eating my gas. I am waisting 5 times the amount of gas now than when my car wasn't havin problems. Not sure if you have noticed the gas prices aren't exactly falling so it is becoming a very costly problem, especially when you have 3 kids that have activities they do. I would take a Honda, Nissan, or Toyota any day over what I have now. The value of the car sucks as well. We paid $22,000 brand new in 2009 and it is only worth $8000 now. Completely ridiculous!!
