Re: brakes failed

I didn't notice Greg's question about the brake fluid but Kia sent their own rep out to look at the car after this happened and they made absolutely no mention of anything being abnormal. Certainly didn't call out the brake fluid which I'd think they'd do if they noticed that.

Re: brakes failed

If they did find any problems, they certainly didn't mention it to me. I turned in the car at the end of my lease. Hope this doesn't happen to the next driver

Re: brakes failed

Update: I took my car back to the Kia dealership and they sent out a technician from Kia Canada. They did not find anything wrong with the car and have deemed this to be a driver error. Obviously I do not feel safe driving this car anymore. I live in a very hilly area and having the brakes fail at ...

Re: brakes failed

I turned mine in once my lease was up. Kia has done their 'investigation' and claimed there is nothing wrong. What really gets me about how it all went down is that prior to their inspection, I was repeatedly reassured that they have 'little black boxes' that record everything in an accident eg when...

Re: brakes failed

They're saying that the impact wasn't big enough to even trigger the crash recorder data. Is that possible? From the way they were talking before, it sounded like it was an "always on"type thing

Re: brakes failed

Just talked to insurance and it's bad news. Because there's no evidence of defect/failure, we basically have to accept responsibility.
Guilty and I don't even know how we can prove we're innocent.
Anybody have any ideas on what else I can do?

Re: brakes failed

i just got off the phone w/ Kia and got bad news in that they did not find anything wrong w/ the car. What's worse is that they're saying that impact was not sufficient to trigger the EDR data so they have no black box data to review. I asked if the 'black box' is supposed to be constantly recording...

Re: brakes failed

I got assigned a new claims adjuster which is good because I like this person better. Quite frankly, I'm a bit disappointed in how this was handled by AAA and I did expired this to the new adjuster. I don't understand why they would have authorized repairs prior to kia even looking at the car when m...

Re: Range showing in Kilometers and Miles

it's happened to me before too. it always fixed itself on the next trip. i just assumed that it was cuz i put the car into reverse before it finished the startup check screen.
