Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThis is a follow up to my original complaint on this issue #11186351... As indicated in that original complaint i took my forte in to the dealership and had it serviced (oil & filter change, tire rotation) and had them check out the issue i was experiencing; they said they could not find anything (not surprised) however there was some type of kia service alert to replace the spark plugs 'again'... I have had this 2018 forte exactly one year now and i am on the second set of spark plugs which i find quite unusual to put it politely.. I have owned many, many new cars and i've never had spark plugs replaced at this rate so imo there is something else wrong with this vehicle and i guess i will have to do the wait and see.. As far as the original problem i still have it driving along and it feels like i ran out of gas which is not true i have almost a full tank of gas and i keep an electronic fuel log to monitor gas usage and the vehicle is getting about 29 mph around town on regular gas..
