MY KIA RIO NIGHTMARE CONTINUES : ANGELES CITY, PHILIPPINES

MY KIA RIO NIGHTMARE CONTINUES : ANGELES CITY, PHILIPPINES

Once again I have run into a issue with my Kia Rio. The ECU is going bad and the part has to be shipped in from South Korea. The problem with shipping is, I was told it can take over three months to ship. I was also told that this problem with the Kia is a ongoing problem from the Kia factory.
NEVER BUY A KIA IN THE PHILIPPINES. Parts are hard to find and when they need replaced you will wait months for it to arrive.

  1. I’ve never understood why Angeles City trikes are so small. When I go to my wife’s province down south, they are full size and I can fit in them nicely. It was the same when I lived there in the late 90’s. Angeles city trikes are just small. We need a YouTube investigation on this! lol Sorry. I lived there in the late 80’s before the bases closed.

  2. Happy 4th july. Wish i could come share turkey with you hehe.
    We are having small pancakes yum yum. With have a hyundai i10 since 2011 no problems. Fords are over priced. But nice.
    Looks amazing over there in clark.

  3. We have a KIA SOUL in Europe and it runs flawless since 15 years! But here in the Philippines you are best off with Toyota although also they have problems with spare parts!

  4. newer trust dealers…nothing wrong with kia in EU one of best cars with 7 year warranty…maybe they sent bad cars to 3 world country…

  5. Good to know. They were poor quality when they first came out in the 90’s, but I thought they had improved them. Kia partnered with Ford.

  6. It’s not just Kia that are slow with parts. I have a Toyota, it needed new brake drums after 25K kilometers. They took 2 months and only had to come from Batangas which is just south of Manila.

  7. Brian, have you ever considered calling their headquarters in Korea. Here is number if you want to at least let them know how frustrating it is to wait for 3/4 mo. for a single part 82 2 3464 1114. We live in Chiang Mai, have a Ford Everest, bought the extended warranty at time of purchase. Thankfully, we have received excellent service, thus far. Take care.

  8. Definitely Toyota is the best shout I’ve had twin cab pickups for years and never let me down. Good luck with your Kia and happy independence day from the U.K. regards Darren

  9. buy a Mazda as they come with a 3 year free maintenance warranty which includes oil changes so at least if you buy a used one you know its been serviced regularly by the dealer

  10. Brian I quess your a rookie.
    Wanna know how to get a trike Brian ?
    You ready for this Brian ?
    Wanna know how to get a trike Brian ?
    Ok Brian are you ready for this ?
    Stand on a corner and clap your hands , trikes will magically appear

  11. South Korea is a throw-away society. When something breaks, they throw it away. So KIA, Hyundai, Daewoo and SsangYong are brands to avoid if you keep your cars for a long time because typically parts are not available after 5 years. In the Philippines, I would personally stick with Toyota and Ford.

  12. howdy, Happy 4th to ya, car problem ?, buy German cars !!. buy Mercedes-benz. real value for money, never had a problem in the last 50 years with Mercedes . cheers.

  13. Come on! That’s too effin’ lame for Kia Phillipines to not have a critical part like that. πŸ™„

    On the other hand, I feel that new ECU will solve all your car’s issues a.k.a. demons. πŸ˜‚

  14. U go Lut . Nothing like a chili dog on independents day.
    Brian, it’s the game.. all the auto makers do this. The money isn’t in cars , it’s in parts. Wakie wakie πŸ˜†

  15. There might be an option here. If you have contacts in the US, check with local auto parts companies, or may be even a KIA dealer in the US. Ask if they will sell you a computer there, and have your parents ship it to you overnight. Make sure you send them the VIN number. There is a good chance this will not work, but its worth a shot! And it might even cost less!

  16. I was just there the other day. Luckily, they didn’t have the car I wanted to look at and possibly buy. Not now though…LOL Thanks for the heads up.

  17. Maybe a 57 Chevy with air aspirated carb, points and condenser fire in the hole! Points last 50,000 miles and cost about 20 bucks! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

  18. Gidday from OZ, The Kia Cerato is one of the most reliable cars sold in Australia. The same car is also sold as a Hyundai Elantra. The Kia Rio has never been anywhere as good. All Kia cars sold here are made in Korea and not their Chinese made models. These days it is more important where something is made, not just the brand name. Look under the hood as see what country is it made in, South Korea or China.

  19. Hey Brian, Is the mechanic factory trained? Did he try and upgrade or reflash the ecm? Toyota owner here, just my 2Β₯! Happy 4th and Thank-You for your service! I will not kneel for NFL national anthem, I rather boycott!

  20. Brian, what you’ve run into is what is known in the business world as “pre-planned obsolescence.” Next time buy a Nissan at the end of year promo time.

  21. You can try Goodgear in Pasay or Seiring in Q.C. Just search them in facebook. Im sure they can get you the right part faster and cheaper as well.

  22. The ECU is a computer, they can program it to fail after the warranty runs out, then Kia can sell you a new one. Having said that, I would buy Kia over any other car brand.

  23. The demon car strikes again, what can you do cars are like people we both don’t age very well and need work done. Hope you had a great Independence Day be safe see you in the next video.

  24. Why don’t you call in to the Dodge RAM DEALERSHIP get ya self a real yankkie piece of American steel .. I bet that will break down a lot before it runs out of warranty same as the Jeep lol . Get a Hyundai Brian, lol , ya swim to North Korea Brian, ya won’t be coming back with the part and ya probably be coming back with few limbs missing,if not ya life ..

  25. Agree with you on the exhaust, it even was worst before when engines were 2 strokes. Now they are 4 strokes but still they blow their exhaust on your face. I think the tricycle “tuktok” are better in design.

  26. It’s the heat and the Humidity here Brian it just kills ECUs. Sell it and get yourself a Toyota they hold up the best here and parts are everywhere. I had a Honda Accord here and they are great also until you need parts for it. One of those things here that leave me scratching my head here because a 1/3 of the cars here are Honda’s and getting typical parts like in the states for them forget it!!!

  27. I have a kia picanto 07 and have never taking it to the dealer i found out they just BS to much I take it to a mechanic by det5 they can get the parts quick and reasonable prices
