The word Kia translates as to arise or come up out of Asia. That is very appropriate for this Korean based auto manufacturer that has very quickly grown to be the 8th largest auto company in the United States. While Kia produces a high end vehicle that generally is at the forefront in sweet new technology, some of these vehicles come off the line with a sour taste, which provide consumers multiple visits to authorized Kia dealerships. These multiple visits for these Kia’s could mean that they are a lemon under state and federal law.
Is My Kia A Lemon?
Whether your bought or leased your Kia, and whether your Kia was new or used it is protected under the lemon law if it has been subject to multiple repair attempts for the same issue or problem.
