Kia Buying Benefits

    When it comes to purchasing a new vehicle, we know there are a lot of choices. If it wasn’t overwhelming enough picking the right vehicle – SUV or crossover? 4WD or 2WD? – you’ll need to consider the extra benefits that are important to you. Luckily, Kia makes it easy. From their 5-Year Warranty Programme to their Incident Care, Kia New Zealand takes care of you and your vehicle, right from the beginning. That means you can focus on the fun stuff – like what colour you want your Seltos – rather than worrying about the details of a warranty. Keep reading to explore Kia buying benefits.

    5-Year or 7-Year Warranty Programme

    An impressive 5-Year/100,000 km (whichever comes first) warranty will cover your new Kia passenger vehicles for any manufacturing or assembly defects. Cockram Kia or another suitable Kia dealership will take care of all necessary repairs, guaranteeing any replacements made will use genuine Kia parts. This ensures the repairs are correcting any legitimate faults covered by this warranty without charge to you. Kia will take care of all necessary repairs within a reasonable time after delivery of your vehicle and during normal business hours.

    Kia’s warranty coverage periods applicable by drivetrain are as below: 

    • Electric vehicle: 5-years/150,000 km (whichever occurs first)
    • Hybrid (PHEV and HEV): 7 years/150,000 km (whichever occurs first)
    • ICE (Gasoline and Diesel): 5 years/150,000km (whichever occurs first)

    5-Year Roadside Assist

    Drive with the ultimate peace of mind knowing that all new passenger vehicles come with free Roadside Assist for the first 5 years, with no kilometre limit. Plus, once the 5 years are up additional coverage can be purchased, so you always have the option to be prepared.
