A couple weeks ago, my engine stalled, spat oil all over the engine bay and had a smoke storm. Called 3 dealerships and none could service my car within 2-3 weeks. I let it cool, and replaced a hose clamp thinking it was a vacuum leak. On the freeway today it did it again....barely made it off the freeway...barely avoided hitting the car in front on the off ramp, and barely made it to a parking lot before the smoke storm ensued. Kia arranged a tow to a dealership and left me in a random parking lot 50 miles from home during rush our. I got an Uber to the shittiest hotel I've ever stayed at....seriously disgusting. Not sure how I'm getting home tomorrow...hoping Kia will help with a rental car. Talk about a bad experience....can't believe they left me in a random parking lot with no where to go.

Here's what I already know about rental cars and reimbursement.

If you find out anything else please update the thread.
