What Does the Kia Warranty Cover?


If you’re considering a Kia as your next new vehicle, you’re likely wondering, “What does the Kia warranty cover?” The good news for Rogers drivers is that the Kia warranty is one of the best in the business! Not only will you have a limited 5-year/60,000-mile Kia bumper-to-bumper warranty that covers most parts and accessories, but the 10-year/100,000-mile Kia powertrain warranty will make it a breeze to keep your engine running smoothly. What’s more, you’ll have a 5-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance plan to give you peace of mind on Elk River roads. Get your Kia warranty coverage details in this guide from Cornerstone Kia!



Kia Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty: What’s Covered

The Kia bumper-to-bumper warranty—also known as your “basic” or “limited” Kia warranty—covers repairs and replacement of most parts and accessories due to anything other than normal wear and tear. Coverage begins on the vehicle’s first service date and ends after five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first.

You can find a more detailed description of replacement parts and services in your owner’s manual or by contacting our service center.

Kia Powertrain Warranty: What’s Covered

The 10-year/100,000-mile Kia powertrain warranty is legendary in the automotive industry, and many Otsego drivers cite it as a significant factor in their decision to buy a Kia. If any of the following parts or components are damaged for any reason other than normal wear and tear, your Kia warranty will foot the bill for the parts or repairs you need:

  • Engine: Cylinder block, cylinder head and all internal parts, timing gear, seals and gaskets, valve cover, oil pump, water pump, flywheel, and turbocharger
  • Transaxle: Drive shafts, bearings, seals and gaskets, front hubs, and universal joints
  • Axle: Axle shafts and C-V joints, hub and wheel bearings, and seals
  • Transmission: Transmission case, seals, gaskets, torque converter and all internal parts, and transfer case
  • Differential: Front and rear differential assemblies, cases, all internal parts, and seals and gaskets
  • Propeller Shaft: Universal joints and drive shafts

Is the Kia Warranty Transferable?

Is the Kia Warranty transferable to a second owner? Yes, but only to certified pre-owned (CPO) Kia vehicles. CPO vehicles are a particular category of used cars that are six years or newer, have 80,000 miles or fewer on the odometer, and have passed a multi-point inspection by certified technicians.

While they come at a higher price than regular used vehicles, certified pre-owned Kia vehicles have perks like a transferable Kia warranty! In other words, if a CPO vehicle is still under warranty, that coverage continues for the length of the original term. CPO vehicles offer the following coverage options:

  • 10-Year/100,000 Mile Limited Kia Powertrain Warranty: Starts on the vehicle’s original in-service date and “0” miles.
  • 1-Year/12,000 Mile Comprehensive Platinum Coverage: Starts on the vehicle’s purchase date and mileage at the time of purchase.
