Yesterday morning, my husband and I were headed out and the car started shaking somewhat violently–didn’t even move yet! Rushed to the dealership, got it checked, and apparently our injector harness had been chewed away–most likely from a rodent!!!
It’s not covered under warranty (seems like many cars aren’t), and insurance won’t cover it either because we weren’t in the car???
It will cost us about $1700+ altogether!!!
I’ve done some research and it seems like rodents favor trucks and new vehicles (we have a 2010 Kia Forte Koup–FYI they spell their coupe with a “k” lol)–especially during cold weather, and it has been pretty chilly and rainy lately. I’ve called friends and auto stores and it seems like there’s no safe way to prevent rodents from entering or damaging your car. Some have suggested wire looms, moth balls, HOT sauce on the wires, etc.
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS AS TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN??? SOMETHING YOU KNOW FOR A FACT WORKS??? (home remedies…store-bought repellents, etc) IT’S VERY EXPENSIVE, AND SERIOUSLY DON’T WANT IT HAPPENING AGAIN (-_-)
THANK YOU!!! (^_^)
P.S. We live in an apartment, so obviously no outdoor remedies that can be harmful to people or pets :\
