    So yesterday coming through an intersection on my way to work my car made a hard thump as I let off of the gas. it felt as though a chunk of ice fell from the wheel well in front of the tire as if the wheel were chocked as I hit the clutch the car rolled fine, let the clutch out and it felt fine. I pulled into a local store parking lot got out to look and low and behold gear oil was pouring out of the trans case. I am pretty sure it was a planetary gear in the differential and that pieces wedged between the diff and case breaking the case. Its been at the dealer for 4 days waiting on kia for warranty approval. The car has 56k on it and has been well maintained. I even reached out to kia's warranty line. Fingers crossed.

    so they are replacing the tranny under warranty after trying to deny it due to my thorly muffler and rear frame brace lol. I had to get in touch with kia customer relations and honestly still didn't get an answer until I tweeted kia NA and kia global. I don't tweet either. ah the power of social media.

    Good for you - we can always start tweeting - look what it got you. I Facebook and participate in car websites of many kinds on the web, e-mail, text, etc., but I don't tweet, either. Glad Kia is going to tow the line on this one.
