So I own a 2017 Kia Soul 2.0. I am the only owner it was purchased brand new. I kept up with my maintenance and did everything I was supposed to do. However, 4 weeks ago after a day of shopping and no issues with the vehicle all of a sudden I am sitting at a stop sign getting ready to turn and the engine knocks a couple times and goes completely dead in the middle of the road! Now the 2 years prior to my vehicle were recalled for engine issues come to find out. But not mine. So I fork out thousands of dollars in labor and a new engine and they go to take the engine out and its not only the engine its also the catalytic convertor as well this is what my mechanic told me High exhaust temperatures damaged the catalytic converter causing engine combustion that damaged the engine's pistons causing the piston to throw in the engine...now again if you look up recalls on the catalytic converter you will find them...just not on mine with the 2.0 engine. So now I am told that the new catalytic convertor is another 1300 dollars which I do not have now after forking out for the engine. I am pissed. Something needs to be done about this because if all that wasn't bad enough I still owe 5000 on the vehicle that I thought was going to last for much longer. and I guess now hopefully it will with half the car going to be brand new again and thousands out of pocket.
