Its bad when you have a new car and cant even get it to start. I called the Kia Dealership and they said they couldn't do anything about it unless they could get it to do it. Said next time it happens to have it towed to them. That doesn't solve problem when I am stuck out on road with a car that won't start for an hour and a half. They said they couldn't do anything to fix problem if it won't start with them. The whole dam car was locked up and I couldn't do anything.

Forte EX 1.6L

  • Automatic transmission

In the morning(8.00 am) I start the car without any problem to my workplace and park the car inside the work premise. At 5.30 pm, when I finished my work and I drive back to my house, the car won't start. ( no dashboard light, no sound at all. ) I called nearby mechanic and he confirmed that battery connection and fuse is in good condition. He advise me to context the KIA dealer for further check. I left my car at workplace and went back to my house with my click before making any contact with KIA dealer the next day. Please give some advice.
