Transmission out in less than 1 year

I will never buy another Kia. I have a 2009 Kia sorento and it needs a new transmission with less than 12,000 miles. Kia doesn't not want to cover any rental costs or supply me with a loaner car. They just want to replace the transmission and send me on my way. I believe this vehicle was sold to me as a lemon. There's no way the transmission should be out, I drove off the lot with less than 20 miles. Does anyone have any legal suggestions they can offer? I feel I should get a new vehicle, my vehicle will never run the same.

Kia Service Robbery

A few months back I took my Kia van to get the 60,000 mile checkup. Capitol's service crew charged me $900.00 to change the timing belt, tune the engine, all fluids etc. A week ago, my timing belt went out, stranding my wife on the road in South Texas. Going to a better Kia dealership, it was noted that the belt was never changed and that the electronic receipt indicates no part numbers that were "included" in the service deal. I specifically asked whether the services were rendered at the time, only to be assured that they were. The new Kia dealership saw the receipt and teh service guy exclaimed - "Well, it looks like you paid a lot for nothing" I am amazed that Kia cannot do something to rectify the situation. Bunch of thieves!
