Kia gives 5 year or 150,000 km warranty for Kia Picanto, if you faced in to this issue when you reach to 60,000 km (you have another 44000 km) take it to the agent, if it is a manufacturing fault they will fix it for you. One thing, you need to maintain the Picanto at agents (Malabe or Kurunegala service centers) to maintain the warranty.

If you purchased this Picanto from the 1st owner, ask him to transfer the warranty under your name.

My wife has Picanto 2016 purchased in March 2017, it has 5 year warranty and I'm also in Kia Picanto club Facebook group and not one has reported this kind of issue or rumor.

With that big-fat warranty kia give  i wouldn't care less about a rumor.  make sure the ex-owner gives you all proper documents.
