I am a pensioner, unable to return to work due to medical reasons. I own a KIA Grand Carnival. Which has a busted engine,and a family of 7. Without it, I cannot take my children to hospital, wife to work, kids to school, or myself to hospital, etc. KIA Kingswood had my car for a week (with constant attempts to contact with no response) before they even looked at it. Yesterday Mon 23rd Feb, I rang for an update. and they were stripping it down. I verbally told Great Western KIA on Monday am (approx 8:30-9 am), the 23rd NOT to strip my engine if its going to cost to put it back in. I was told by receptionist on the phone to trust them, it will most likely be covered under warranty. It wasn't. The engine is now sitting outside my car, on a stand.They now want to extort $2000 out of us to put the motor back in without any change or repair. It took them about 4-5 hours to get the motor out and strip it down.  Talk about price gouging! To repair my engine, they want $7k to $8k plus labour. Just put it back how it was. FOR FREE or an appropriate repair deal.

This is nothing short of extortion! No photo available. Sorry folks.
