KIA Forte Engine Knock Class Action Investigation

Engine Knock in Kia Forte may Indicate Premature Cylinder Wear

Migliaccio & Rathod is investigating potential claims involving Kia Forte cars for model years 2010-2015. A manufacturing defect may have caused premature wear of the Forte engines’ cylinders, which require costly repairs. Reports indicate that the initial symptoms of the defect include a knocking sound from the engine, which worsens over time.

Knocking sounds reportedly lead to costly repairs

Some reports indicate that Forte owners who sought warranty service for the knocking sound were told that the sounds were normal and no cause for concern. But some owners apparently learned that the knocking sound was the result of cylinder wear and required major repairs to the engine block. These repairs can cost thousands of dollars.

Do you own or lease a 2010-15 Kia Forte with a 2 liter engine that emits a knocking sound?
