Is your Kia a lemon?

If you bought or leased your Kia, and whether you purchased it new or used, your Kia is protected by lemon laws provided that it was purchased with a warranty and continues to face recurring issues. While you must give the manufacturer an appropriate number of opportunities to correct the error, once that has transpired you may seek out a Kia buyback under lemon law. Problems that would trigger a buyback should be defects that damage the safety and integrity of the vehicle, or that cause harm to the value of the Kia. If these terms are met, there’s a strong chance that your Kia will qualify for a buyback.

Common Kia Defects

Kia vehicles, like any other automobile, are susceptible to defects that limit the ability to drive safely or compromise the resale value. Over the years, successful lemon law claims have been filed for a number of vehicles, so if you’re seeking recommendations on Kia Optima lemon law, Kia Sorento lemon law or other Kia lemon law cases, check your issue and follow-up with Lemon Law Now. More common defects that can affect Kia vehicles include the following:

  • Engine trouble (stalling, overheating, leaks, seizing, failure)
  • Check engine light issues
  • Alignment problems
  • Transmission problems (poor shifting, jerkiness, or acceleration issues)
  • Warning light illumination (oil, airbags, etc.)
  • Brake issues (regular or emergency)
  • Vehicle stuck in reverse

…and many more! Essentially, your Kia vehicle should never feel compromised. That’s where we’re here to help get you back on the road, driving safely wherever you go.

Kia Recalls

Often the case may be that a recurring issue is part of a more overarching recall initiative issued by the manufacturer. Keeping up-to-date with recalls on your vehicle can help you better understand what you’re dealing with as a consumer in order to get the proper legal counsel that you need.

More recently, a number of 2011-2014 Kia Sorento’s were recalled due to risk of fire; the Kia Optima also fell under this recall. The 2020 Kia Sorento was recalled in some locations due to risks over the autonomous brake system failing. Whatever the recall issue may be, understanding how this plays a role in your Kia lemon law case is crucial. Kia buyback program 2018 and Kia buyback program 2019 were only the beginning of these Kia buyback programs.

2019 Kia Forte Recall for Headlights

Kia Motors America issued the recall on November 30th, 2018 for certain 2019 Kia Forte automobiles that are equipped with LED headlights upon manufacturing. The 2019 Kia Forte recall is standing due to the headlights, which may not have been manufactured with the proper low beam aiming. If the headlights are not properly aimed out of the factory, motor vehicle operators may experience a reduced range of visibility. This can, in turn, reduce the time to react while on the road and lead to a greater risk of traffic accidents and injuries. Accordingly, these specific vehicles that are affected may fail to comply with the standards and requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, which is associated with, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”
