So i bought a used car 2013 kia rio! With about 100,000 km. Sorry this might be a bit long.
The dealer offered a 1 month guarantee on the car after purchase.
So ive had the car for a couple weeks and the first thing i noticed was that when i am driving and im going a decent speed and i take my foot off the gas and also not on the brake my car sometimes does this thing where it is as if i pressed on the breaks for a couple seconds even tho i didnt. I know that the car will naturally slow down by itself but with all my cars i never felt this. I thought maybe i was just imagining it or something but while driving with my husband i asked if he felt it and he said i thought you just pressed on the breaks, even tho i didnt. I explained this to the car dealer and all of the mechanics there said they never heard of this happening and theres nothing wrong.
Another thing 2 days before my appointment for the breaks my check engine light came on. It never went off it stayed on the entire 2 days and when i gave them my car it was still on.
I wait one hour and the mechanic asks me to come back. He is very rude and says there is nothing wrong with the car and that i shouldnt waste his time with this. He tells me to get in the car and show him that the car breaks/slows down when i am not pressing the break, i tell him i cant make it do that it happens randomly when im driving on the road. ( we are in the garage with about 10 ft in front of us) he gets even more irritated.
I notice that the check engine light is off.
So i ask him what the problem was and what the code was. He said the check engine light wasnt on when they drove it into the garage. I really dont believe him because the check engine light has been on for 2 days straight and was on when i got there.
So he said hes gonna look at the codes stored in the computer. He comes back maybe 15mins later and says the code was for a leak in some type of valve, i ask him to tell me which one and he just plays it off and says its not important. So i asked well did you fix it?? And he said since the check engine light is off it means theres no problem anymore and that there is nothing to fix now.
Is he telling the truth? I really dont know what to do. I just got this car. What is your advice???
