I'm new to the forum and wanted to know if anyone out there experience the same? I have a 2018 Kona 1.6 turbo, dual transmission, 4wd., currently have 28,000 just over 2 yrs. old. On the freeway the car lost acceleration, smoke coming out of the exhaust. It's under warranty so it's covered, I was told the turbo broke causing oil to smoke in the exhaust. Dealership is replacing the turbo, gasket, spark plugs. I was considering purchasing when my lease is up next year, now I'm having 2nd thoughts? Any input from my Kona family?

It happens. Turbos are another failure point.

First turbo failure I read about on these cars.. they seem very reliable and with oil cooled bearings And other oversight.. they should last as long as the engine..

I need to update my issue regarding my 2018 Kona 1.6 turbo previously written with a Turbo problem, initially the dealership accessed the turbo went out, needing a new turbo, gasket, spark plugs. They changed the diagnoses, 1 of the fuel injectors went out, causing smoke coming out of the exhaust. This was a much easier fix than the original diagnoses. They gave me a car rental, covered by warranty, nothing on paper work & I asked how much this repair cost... $500.00. Thanks for the people who wrote in... just wanted to clarify a better outcome.
