7-year warranty

FAQ: 7-year warranty

It's the high production quality of our manufacturing operations both in Europe and around the world that give Kia the confidence to offer this remarkable warranty that is unique in the European marketplace.

Any new Kia vehicle purchased and registered after 1 January 2010.

Yes, some items have a natural limited lifetime/durability and are therefore covered for less than 7 years. These are: Battery (2 years), audio system, navigation and in-car entertainment (3 years/max. 100,000 km) and vehicle paint (5 years/150,000 km).

This is not like many other external insurance company covered warranties. This is a comprehensive manufacturer's warranty: "bumper-to-bumper" warranty from day 1 until the end of the 7th year.
