 Description of the problemWe bought our car in october 2016. During our transition from new york to georgia our engine failed on us. My husband and i took it to a kia autobody shop in greenville south carolina. They fixed it free of charge due to a recall on our specific year, make and model of our car. We then proceeded as usual taking care of it getting the standard oil change and check ups. There were no signs or warnings for what would happen four months after. On july 10, 2018 at 2:45 pm my husband was driving on the expressway i20 e heading home. The car started shaking my husband pulled over. There was black smoke coming out of the car. He turned the car off and stepped out a few seconds after our car exploded on him. Counting our blessings that he, nor i and our three kids were not in the car. We reported to kia that same day. We are currently waiting to hear back from some one.
