What is the Warranty on a Kia?

2023 Kia Sportage

A warranty helps cover the costs of routine maintenance and critical repairs for a specific period, ultimately saving you a considerable amount of money. Whether you’re buying a new Kia vehicle or a certified pre-owned one, the automaker offers an exceptional warranty program. So, what is the warranty on a Kia? Our team at Kia of Chattanooga gives you all the details below.



What Does the Kia Warranty Program Cover?

If you’re purchasing a new or CPO Kia manufactured in 2008 or later, your vehicle qualifies for the Kia warranty program. The program includes the Kia bumper-to-bumper warranty, as well as a:

  • 5-year/100,000-mile limited anti-perforation warranty
  • 5-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty
  • 5-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance plan
  • 10-year/100,000-mile limited Kia powertrain warranty

What are the Benefits of a Kia Warranty?

There are a number of benefits that come with the Kia warranty program. First and foremost, the 10-year/100,000-mile limited Kia powertrain warranty covers a wide range of engine and transmission parts, from the oil pump and flywheel to seals and gaskets, from the driveshafts and differentials to the hub and wheel bearings.

If a flat tire, dead battery, overheated engine, or empty gas tank leaves you stranded in Cleveland, Dayton, or wherever the road takes you, you will appreciate the 24-hour roadside assistance component of the Kia warranty. One call to any of the more than 17,000 service providers across the country is all it takes to summon help.

What if your car breaks down due to a warranty-covered event? If you’re more than 150 miles from home and the repair takes more than 24 hours, Kia will reimburse you for reasonable costs, like a rental car, hotel, and even meals.

Is a Kia Warranty Transferable?

So, is a Kia warranty transferable if you sell your vehicle? Yes, some of the warranties are! The limited basic warranty, limited anti-perforation warranty, and roadside assistance plan can all be transferred to the new owner.
