Kia Australia announces 7-7-7; 7-year warranty, capped servicing

October 1, 2014

This is the most extensive warranty program currently on offer in Australia, surpassing the current five-year/unlimited km warranty setup previously in place for Kia cars.

Current Kia owners who are still within their five-year capped-price servicing program will be upgraded with an additional two years to match the new offer at no cost.

Kia Motors Australia chief operating officer Damien Meredith said:

“This is a watershed moment in customer care. Kia customers now have a peace of mind that can’t be matched in the Australian new car market.

“Crucially, our customers will not be asked to pay any more for their scheduled services than had been the case with the five year capped-price program.

“The two year increase in warranty, capped-price servicing and roadside assist is absolutely transparent and we will not be asking our customers to dip into their pockets to fund the extra benefits.

“Kia acknowledges that there is huge choice available in the new car market in Australia and we need to be ready to build a lifetime relationship with our customers, anticipating and providing for their needs when they make that decision to join the Kia family.”

The seven-year package is also fully transferable to second-hand owners, provided the usual conditions of the Kia Connect program are not voided during initial ownership.

As for the the roadside assist package, it will be renewed free of charge each year with each annual service done by an authorised Kia dealer.
