On October 5, 2006 I was looking for a car to get to my job.So I went to this dealership.The car that was sold to me had minor problems after I took out on the street.

The first one was the check engine light stayed on.Next, was the speedodometer never worked.Then, the front light on the passenger side was out.After driving this lemon car for a while I notice the engine temperature gage moving to the overheating range then going back down after the car was moving so it was burning heavy antifreeze they told me was put in.

Thinking this was a used car I took the car to my auto shop to fix the problems.After driving it for a while there were noises around the air conditioning vents which stopped after I turned off the a/c.One month later this car had to go back to my auto shop because of rusted overused brakes which I had to pay for.

During this summer there were more problems with this car.It started leaking power steering fluid which I had to pay for a new hose.The car I never could tell would overheat at times until I put antifreeze in it.

The big blow was when I took the car out of town and parked it the never started.I had a auto repair man look at and was told the engine was "no good"

I only had this car for less that 2 years and is a 2004 which I was told and the motor just dies.That is crooked dealing by this car business.Maybe Evergreen Kia car sales were slow or they were trying to get rid of those junk cars that were in their lot.

Other things that were badly found in this car and not it the car were:
No car manuel
Junk as in personal info from the ex-owner

About two weeks I made a visit to this dealership about a car manuel and the problems of this car I was told rudley"you have to take the car like it is".

As of August 2008 this car is a long ways from being paid for .I contacted Evergreen Kia on Friday August 8, 2008 and left a message.When I had to leave the car to where I was vacationing because I can't tow it back and returned to Chicago .I called Evergreen Kia in which I was asked mumbling muttering questions that I could not understand and this dealership hung up!

Again I called Evergreen Kia seconds after the first and the salesmanger slammed the phone in my face meaing I was hung in a very rude innorant way!

Is this how Evergreen Kia does business by selling lemon cars?
