Does Kia's factory warranty cove the car after the vehihicle has been sold (I'm the second owner)
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
this sucks..when the dealer tell you your kia is covered to 100,000 miles,even if you are the 2nd owner...done with kia liars
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!
I just chatted with Kia Customer Service about 2nd owner warranties. Much of what has already been said is correct. The Powertrain warranty changes from 10 years/100,000 miles to 5 years/60 EXCEPT if you purchase the Kia at a Kia Dealership and it is a Certified Kia. In that case, the 10/100,000 remains.
I was told as a second owner at the kia dealership it was only for 60,000 or 5 years. Where did you get your information?
