I don't like to report or wasting time for some thing I suffered, but this report may help to prevent further damage to unsuspecting customers who may want to do business with Peoria Kia service department.
On September 8th 2015, I brought in my 2008 Kia Sedona for them to diagnose the engine cooling fans problem which cause the engine to heat up. I had trusted them totally to fix my Kia Sedona, I had believed that because they are selling Kia cars. Soon afterward, they told me that my van has a big problem, the electrical wires got so hot that it melted away and damaged the fan controller, which caused the engine overheat. It will cost $ 1,200.00 for the total repair. I then asked them ( Steve, the service adviser, is a nice gentleman, he only listened to the evil mechanic's faked report ) if they had a copy of the diagnostic printout which shows the problem in details by the computer scan. They told me they don't have it....I knew then that they are lying, so I brought it home for my cousin to check it out, he found out the real problem, it is the ECT sensor ( engine cooling temperature sensor ) failed to send the signal to the fans. There was no melted wires found, the fan controller still good. We then bought the temperature sensor for 25 bucks, replaced it. Soon after, my mini van works again for 25 bucks.
Warning: Stay away from this dealership at all cost or face unscrupulous rip offs.
I Recommend This Dealer:
