Last week I wrote about Kia’s Inflated Mileage Claims. After taking my Sportage to the dealership yesterday, I thought it only fair that I post a follow up.
First, I had omitted the fact that some Hyundai vehicles were also affected by inflated mileage claims. This makes sense, as Hyundai owns Kia.
Second… and most important… apparently this reimbursement is a yearly occurrence! I had assumed that it was merely a one time only adjustment. Well.. you know what happens when you assume. I was wrong.
I should be receiving my gas card for almost $40 in the mail sometime over the next couple of weeks. Not too bad for only having 8432 kms on the car. This time next year I will have considerably more… and that will be reflected in the next gas card. And every year for as long as I own the car! And if I sell the car to someone else, that transfers with the car, so it’s pretty sweet.
