22' Stinger GT Line
#1
Hello everyone. Sorry that my first post is asking for help but I really need some advice. I bought a used 22' GT Line less than a month ago with only 17k mileage. Not even 2 weeks with it and I got the check engine light and the P0301. Took it to the dealer and they fixed I believe the sparkplugs (sorry don't know a whole lot about cars). Next day same thing. Took it back and after not finding exactly what is wrong with it, they say that the KIA people, the ones above the dealer I suppose, want to replace the engine. I know all that should be covered under the warranty but is that normal? To go from a cylinder misfire to a new engine? A 2 yr old car with 17k miles on it? That I've only driven to and from work and haven't even put 500 miles in it myself? That is a certified pre-owned from a KIA dealer? It doesn't make sense to me. Anyway... any help is much appreciated.

Welcome aboard, sorry to hear you're having problems, The only thing I can say is, buying a used car like a stinger, you don't know how the first owner treated the car. Some of these cars have had misfire problems & it ended up being a coil pack, that's something to check. I personally don't take my car to the dealership because I don't trust them, so I have a good friend of mine I go to. I hope you figure it out.
