Seems my Kia (a Sportage) is the subject of a recall so
they can update a fuse in the car. There's an issue with
some hydraulic fluid thingy (can you tell I know lots about
cars - not!) and if it gets water in it, bad things, like
fire could happen.
I rang the dealer and when parts arrive I'm one of about
500 they have to get in to update a part :)
Only $500? Count yourself lucky. But I thought all aspects of
a recall should not cost the owner anything.
My 12yr old Rav4 has recently had a rear suspension, 2x shocks,
4x rotors, 2 isolators, 2 calipers, and 4x brakepads
Estimate = $2900
The work was done in about 8 hours. It was announced ready
today (Friday), but when they went to back it out of the work
bay, the brake line burst - due to excessive corrosion
I'm without a vehicle for at least until Monday when they may
or may not get the parts they need.
