These defective Kia’s may qualify as lemons under state and federal law. If you are experiencing issues with your Kia vehicle, don’t hesitate to call us immediately to start getting it resolved.

Known Kia Lemon Law Issues
If you have a Kia that has been repeatedly fixed for the same problem, you may have a lemon. The lemon law covers new and used Kias that are bought or leased. The problem must affect the safety, use, or value of the vehicle significantly. A lemon law lawyer can help you determine if your Kia qualifies as a lemon. Some of the Kia models that have had lemon law cases are Kia Amante, Kia Cadenza, Kia Forte, Kia Optima, Kia Rio, Kia Sedona, Kia Sorento, Kia Soul, Kia Spectra, and the Kia Sportage.
Some of the common problems with these Kias are:
- Damaged wire harness that may cause airbags to not deploy; increasing the risk of injury in a crash
- Electrical short with the printed circuit board (PCB) that can result in a fire; increasing the risk of injury
- Fire from the Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit (HECU) that might occur while parked or driving; increasing the risk of injury
- Impaired “fail-safe” limited-mobility drive mode that can cause a complete loss of drive power; increasing the risk of a crash
- Incorrectly installed airbags that might not deploy properly; increasing the risk of injury in a crash
