What is the Warranty on a Kia?


If you’re considering a Kia as your next new vehicle, you’re likely wondering what the warranty on a Kia is going to 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. Get the details on your Kia warranty coverage 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 a period of 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 major 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 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 Kia Warranty transferable to a second owner? Yes, but only to certified pre-owned Kia vehicles. CPO vehicles are a special category of used cars that are five years or newer, have 60,000 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 Kias come with perks like a transferable Kia warranty! In other words, if a CPO vehicle is still under warranty, then 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 time of purchase.
