SUSPENSION

COMING BACK FROM WISCONSIN THE LEFT FRONT COIL SPRING BUSTED AND SHREDDED THE INSIDE OF THE LEFT FRONT TIRE BLOWING IT OUT TRAVELING AT 65 MILES PER HOUR. I HAD SEEN ON THE INTERNET THAT HYUNDIES AND KIA WERE NOTED FOR THERE DEFECTIIVE FRONT COIL SPRING BREAKING AND CAUSING DAMAGE TO TIRES AND POSSIBLY WRECKS. I CALLED THE KIA DEALERSHIP IN QUINCY, ILLINOIS AND HE TOLD ME THE PARTS WERE NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY AND I WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR PARTS AND LABOR TO FIX MY VEHICLE. THIS HAS ALREADY COST ME $240.00 FOR 2 NEW FRONT TIRES ON MY VEHICLE. I FEEL THIS IS UNFAIR DUE TO THE FACT THAT POSSIBLY THESE FRONT COIL SPRINGS WERE OF DEFECTIVE WEAK FOREIGN MATERIAL AND SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED FOR THE SAKE OF PEOPLES LIVES
