#16 of 17 Re: Burned Up over my 2000 Kia [nokia4me]

Literally, burned up. That's what happened to my 2000 Kia last night.
I am sorry to hear about your misfortunes, but I really don't think you can hold Kia to task for this. The car is 13 years old. Literally, exactly, unequivocally, 13 years old. Out in the real world, is there any manufactured item that we would hold the manufacturer responsible for after 13 years?
Offhand, I can think of one - Zippo lighters. You can run over a Zippo with a piece of heavy equipment, squash it flat, send it back and they will replace it. No questions asked.
There used to be one other. When I was a kid, back in the last millenium, my father always bought Sears Craftsman hand tools. Sears stood behind the Craftsman hand tools, no matter what you did to it, they would fix it or replace it. But that stopped several decades ago, and I no longer buy anything from Sears.
Back to your story - Do you really think Kia should stand behind their car 13 years later? I don't.
