The basic warranty does continue to cover the car up to 5 years or 60,000 miles. The power train warranty drops from 10 years 100,000 miles to 5 years or 60,000 miles for succeeding owners.

The powertrain control module (PCM) also referred to as the computer and the catalytic converter are Federally mandated to be covered for either 5 years or 50,000 miles or 8 years or 80,000 miles whichever comes first depending on where you are. Under this law it doesn't matter how many owners the car's had. You're still covered. HTH. -Jim

Hi Ken, contact Kia Customer Service at 1-(800)-333-4542. The dealer may be just trying to weasel out of doing warranty work!! HTH. -Jim

I was never told the 10 year / 100,000 mile warranty wasn't transferable....not sure I asked specifically about that warranty but I did inquiry on warranty n was told it's transferable....didn't realize that KIA considers them separate warranties....i rationally thought that a car uas one warranry with different limitations.....sucks!
