Kia-Hyundai is bottom of the barrel, cheapest of the cheap. I wouldn't expect anything ethical about them and the businesses that support them. Sorry, but this is what you get when you turn your back on American union workers.

I hate to say it but I'd say one year old with 1K miles on it, it's considered a used car. I would consult an attorney. It is possible they end up giving you some kind of extended warranty plan to compensate for the shortened warranty you have now.

You clearly know nothing about those cars, nor about the Hyundai company. More importantly, this is a dealer issue, not the Hyundai company (unless Hyundai owns their dealerships, which I doubt is the case).

**UPDATE**

The Dealer has made contact with me and stated they made a mistake. They are getting in contact with their KIA representative and will be extending any warranties to the full manufactures warranty. KIA Motors USA also made contact and said they will change it on their end if the dealer does not change it by the end of the week as the paperwork does show new.

Kia Motors USA states the start date of February will still remain but the mileage will be extended. The way I drive, the mileage will go before the date anyways so it's not a huge deal.

Thanks for all of your help, I referenced a lot of what you said when dealing with the dealer.

You drink the made in America by union kool-aid they feed you.



A dealer franchise sold a car with improper pretenses, how on earth does that relate to “unethical” corporation.


Unethical corporations I know of;
* GM selling cars for years with known bad ignitions but too lazy and cheap to redesign part.
* VW flat out lying to EPA along with deceit in Diesel engine emissions

Likely more

Hyundai and Kia make very competent vehicles and back them up with the strongest warranty coverage in the business. The 10 yr/100,000 mile warranty was the best thing they have ever done to gain buyers confidence and it has paid off for them big time. Choosing a vehicle that meets all of your needs, is affordable, and offers a good warranty is sensible. In addition to all of this, the vehicles do generally prove to be very reliable. Instead of blaming the customers for being unpatriotic why don’t the Big 3 compete by at least offering comparable warranty coverage to entice buyers?

Putting cash in the coffers of the UAW has never been a consideration when I select a vehicle. In fact, I buy Wranglers in spite of their being assembled by the UAW.
As for Hyundais and Kias, they are very good cars- just not my cup of tea...

Glad to hear they are unscrewing this deal for you.

My wife is from SA and many years back bought a KIA Sportage from World Car KIA. Got a call a few months after the sale from the GM of World Car to let us know that the finance person who process our deal was fired from the company for stealing customer info and opening credit card lines of credit in my wife's and a few others name. They did pay for the legal costs and any reimbursement to get her credit history clean of the incident

There are thousands Americans works for Kia/Hyundai. I bet your Chevy has many parts made in China or Mexico.
