Is Kia's Warranty As Good As It Sounds?



Kia’s vehicles are unmatched in many ways. Right from their style, shape, and performance, to the experience of driving a Kia car, many people will vouch for the brand. But is Kia’s warranty as good as its cars? Let us find out.

How long is it?

Kia’s warranty lasts for 10 years or 1,00,000 miles. Whereas most other competitors typically offer a warranty of 3 years or 36,000 miles. Some makers also offer a special powertrain warranty that lasts for 5 years or 60,000 miles. But none of these match to Kia.

What does it cover?

Here are some components of Kia’s long 10-year warranties:

  1. 10-year or 1,00,000 miles powertrain warranty: This is limited to the engine of the vehicle and covers aspects like transmission, driveshafts, etc.
  2. 5-year or 1,00,000 miles anti-perforation warranty: This offers protection from corrosion on the car’s external body. But this does not include damage from hail, snow, sand, or rain. It also does not include accidental perforation.
  3. 5-year or 60,000 miles basic warranty: This covers most contingencies except for natural wear and tear of the vehicle.
  4. 5-year or 60,000 miles roadside assistance: This includes gas delivery, flat tire, and jump start assistance. Owners can only use up to $75 for every incident. In addition to this, the toll-free hotline number is accessible 24 x 7, including all holidays.

What does it not cover?

The warranty does not cover the following:

  1. Damage caused by misuse or collisions. (Anything that is caused by the consumer)
  2. Damage due to environmental factors such as hail, snow, etc.
  3. Broken or scratched windows.
  4. Damage occurred due to modifications or alterations.
  5. Damage caused by using incorrect tires.

To sum it up

Kia’s warranty is certainly as good as it sounds. It is also one of the best in the industry, with no clear competition around.
