Kia is a South Korean automobile manufacturer based in Seoul, South Korea. KIA stands for “Korean International Automotive,” and its lineup boasts a wide variety of sedans, crossover, SUVs, and hybrid vehicles. Popular KIA models include the Soul, the Optima, and the Sorento. While KIA claims to have the “Power to Surprise,” not all of these surprises can be good ones.
According to California Lemon Law and Federal Lemon Law, you as a consumer are protected against defective vehicles. If you have purchased or leased a KIA that is defective, despite multiple attempts to repair, the manufacturer may be obligated to compensate you. For more information, and to see if your vehicle may be a lemon, contact the professionals at Kaufman & Kavicky, LLP today.

- Engine failure
- Steering system issues
- Faulty trailer hitch module
- Difficulty shifting gears
- Transmission defects
Kia cars and SUVs have been subject to many recalls in recent years. Faulty trailer hitch module, issues with the Hydraulic Clutch Actuator, and power sliding door issues are just a few of the defects that have taken KIAs off of the road in the past few years.
