Industry-best seven year unlimited kilometre warranty announced by Kia.
Kia is today launching a new industry-leading warranty program that will cover owners for seven years and unlimited kilometres.
Customers will also benefit from seven years of capped price servicing and roadside assistance, while the warranty will be fully transferable between owners.
All existing Kia owners whose vehicles were covered by the brand's previous five-year capped price servicing plan will also automatically receive an additional two years of capped price servicing for a total of seven years. The five year warranty period remains for these owners however.
"Crucially, our customers will not be asked to pay any more for their scheduled services than had been the case with the five year capped-price program," Kia Australia COO Damien Meredith said.
"The two year increase in warranty, capped-price servicing and roadside assist is absolutely transparent and we will not be asking our customers to dip into their pockets to fund the extra benefits," he added.
Kia is currently the only automaker in Australia to offer a seven-year warranty period, trumping Citroen's six-year term and the five-years offered by several other manufacturers. The Korean brand's new coverage is also more than double the three-year industry standard.
