Kia offers one of the best warranties in the business. Drivers who roll off the dealership lot in a new Kia can have confidence that they have made a wise investment with plenty of added value. While the Kia warranty is comprehensive, it’s important that drivers understand just what it does cover – and what it doesn’t. When it’s time for factory scheduled maintenance will that be covered under the warranty? We break it down below.

Does my Kia warranty cover factory scheduled maintenance?
The warranty on your new Kia covers defects and repairs that go above and beyond normal and expected wear and tear so you will be protected if there were any problems in the manufacturing process. The Kia warranty does not cover routine or factory scheduled maintenance. That cost will need to be covered in full by the driver. Skipping out on routine maintenance services or having your vehicle serviced at a non-authorized dealership or service center could impact your warranty. Be sure to only get serviced by certified Kia technicians and keep all of your receipts and paperwork so if you do run into problems that are covered by the warranty you won’t run into any trouble.
How Do I Know If A Repair or Service is Covered?
You should have received a warranty pamphlet with your new Kia purchase spelling out all of the services and repairs that are covered under the warranty. This is a great place to start. Your Kia service center rep can also tell you if a repair will be covered under your warranty, so be sure to ask them about coverage and pricing before they get started working so there are no surprises at the end of your visit.
