I think we just need peace of mind that this isn't going to happen to all these engines and some might just be ok.
If this problem is affecting only a certain batch of engines then I don't understand why KCS can't tell us that and reassure us.
My suspicion is that many are being repaired without the owner's knowledge when the car visits the workshop for something else, which I'm not really comfortable with.
The fact that there is a problem is becoming much more widely known, Kia should be more transparent and reassure the owners of the scale of the problem. At the end of the day an early repair will cost them much less than replacing an engine that has gone bang.
