2016 Kia Rio LX - I call it "My little death trap"
March 5, 2019
I purchased the vehicle in September 2017. Everything was great till I had the oil changed. Then the anti-skid and power steering light comes on, that is when the power steering goes out. It can't be reset unless it is powered off and restarted. I reported it to Kia corporate and have a claim number. After research the Kia Sorento and Optima has the same problem back to 2012. Quick search pulled up this problem with no recall. I spoke with several mechanics, they all told me the same thing. "I won't be able to make a diagnosis till it does it". That would be difficult considering it is so sporadic when it does it. I will be driving down the road, doesn't matter if it's been raining or a nice day - the lights come on any given moment and your power steering is gone! I would get another vehicle, but I'm in an upside down contract paying $427 a month for approximately 3 more years!😓
