 Description of the problemOn december 21, 2018 i called to make a appointment to have my suv recall taken care of. They set me up with a appointment january 3, 2019 at 9:00am. Well i make it to my appointment on time and hand the keys over to the service department, they tell me it should take about 45mins to a hour. 2 hours later my suv is done and they said it is fine and that they changed my oil. I appreciate the oil change but i just had it change not even a 1,000miles ago. Any ways, i get in my suv and drive home, it's driving and running normal, just like it was before i brought it in, normal. Takata recall on january 4, 2019 at 8:20pm i'm driving back home from shopping at to wal-mart, when my suv shuts off completely, my lights were still on, all the lights on the dash came on, i put my flashers on and coast to the side of the road. I put it in park, turn the suv off, then i try to start it, would not start, so i turn it off and try again, it struggled to start but it started up. I put it in drive and countie heading home. I get 1mile and it does it again. So i did just like did the first time and same results. Finally i made it home. The next day i go to call the dealership, but i'm told the service department is closed on weekends. Well i've been remodeling my home myself and i forget to call kia, my car wasn't acting weird so i kind of forgot about it. Takata recall until january 11, 2019 7:36pm i drive to go drop my child off to his mother and i hear a taping noise under my hood, but it only made it that one time so i paid no mind to it. Takata recall january 21,2019 7:21pm i'm driving on my way home on a back road that is a short cut from where i was coming from. An i hear this little grinding noise, and then the taping noise i heard before but it was louder and it didn't stop. My check engine started flashing so i pull over and call for help. My other half said its a rod bearing.
