The Warranty

Kia's new-car warranty is legendary for its scope and the length of protection it offers. But did you know that the warranty is transferable to subsequent owners? That's right--if you buy a used Kia, you'll enjoy the balance of one of the longest and most comprehensive warranties in the automotive industry.  

Let's take a look at some of the benefits that will transfer to you if you purchase a Kia that's still under the warranty period:

•   5-year/100,000 km comprehensive "worry-free" warranty--this covers essentially every component of the vehicle.

•   5-year/100,000 km powertrain warranty--this covers the engine, transmission, driveshaft, differentials, and axles.

•   1-year/20,000 km first year adjustments--need new bulbs, adjusted wipers, replacement brake pads, etc.? They're all covered.

•   8-year/130,000 km Major Emissions Components warranty--enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your Kia will pass emissions inspections, or Kia will fix it for free.

•   5-year/unlimited-mileage 24x7 roadside assistance--in the rare event of a mechanical breakdown, Kia will come to your assistance.

•   8-year/160,000 km warranty on hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric vehicle components--battery packs and electric motors are covered for eco-friendly peace of mind. .

Certified Pre-Owned

Some vehicles in our used car inventory qualify for Certified Pre-Owned Kia (CPO) status. We like to call this "a car you can call new." These vehicles must meet standards set by Kia of Canada. To start with, every CPO Kia must pass a CarProof vehicle history report to guarantee accurate mileage and no history of accidents. Next it must pass a 135-point vehicle inspection that covers every component of the car, including the interior and exterior condition, powertrain, chassis, tires, exhaust system, and all safety equipment.  

On top of that, Kia Canada offers a number of outstanding benefits with CPO Kias:

•   An optional extended mechanical warranty covering up to 4 years beyond the vehicle's base warranty

•   3 free lube, oil, and filter services  •  A $500 recent graduate bonus toward the purchase of a CPO Kia

•   A 15 day, 1,000 km Exchange Privilege program--if you don't like your CPO Kia, you can exchange it for another.

Other Reasons to Buy a Used Kia
