Did they replace the AC fluid for free or charge you? Magically my AC has been working ever since that one strange hiccup. Hopefully it doesn't go when I make my road trip later this summer.

The battery is bad on a two year old car? What is the warranty on the battery? Very strange...
I have had a couple vehicles that I purchased brand new where the battery went out in a couple years. One Ford and one GMC.
The aftermarket replacements are still good at 5+ years. I think they use crap batteries in new cars.

Interesting. I guess newer cars also have "crappier" paint and windshields than before? It's a shame. I guess it's because more and more people rarely keep their new rides for more than a few years and wash money down the drain. I need this Stinger to last a solid decade haha!

I hear you. If you sell millions of vehicles a year then saving a few dollars using cheap stuff adds up, all at our expense

Does AutoZone test for free? I thought Kia would replace a battery under their warranty if it is this early in the car? Funny enough the battery in my WRX lasted for five years! Can you believe that?!?!? :p
My stinger just passed one year old. Battery warranty is 100% for the first year and 50% for the second. They had the car on a charger and got it up to 61% capacity.

They did not charge me for refrigerant and blamed the factory for not topping it off.

My little battery maintainer/conditioner has still not brought the battery back to full charge after 18 hours. It charges at less than 1 volt.

I wired a plugin so I don't have to fool with clamps and fuse box lid.
