Kia features a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty, and more — and they’re transferrable if you sell your Kia. Learn more about the Kia warranty, Kia roadside assistance and trip interruption, and how transferring your Kia warranty works on every vehicle, from the Soul to the Telluride.

What Do You Get with the Kia Warranty?

Since 2008, every new Kia vehicle comes with the following warranty coverage:

  • 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty.
  • 5-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty.
  • 5-year/100,000-mile limited anti-perforation warranty.
  • 5-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance plan.

The powertrain warranty covers the vehicle’s essential systems, including the engine, transaxle, axle, transmission, differential, and propeller shafts against damage or defect caused by manufacturer defect.

It protects your vehicle whether it’s sitting at home or driving across the country (though you should take special care of a vehicle if it’s just sitting at home).

What’s Included in Kia Roadside Assistance?

The Kia Roadside Assistance Plan gives drivers access to Kia’s network of roadside assistance providers, over 17,000 who are available 24 hours a day. As long as you’re in the United States, they’ll be able to help. Roadside assistance providers help out at no charge with minor mishaps (running out of gas, dead batteries, a flat tire).

What if you’re on a trip and something with your Kia derails your plans? That’s where the Trip Interruption Policy comes in. If a warranty-related disablement happens, you’re 150 miles or more away from home, and the repairs will take more than 24 hours, Kia will provide reimbursement for meals, lodging, or rental car expenses.

Have further questions about the warranty or roadside assistance? The official Kia warranty guide has your answers.

Contact Kia Roadside Assistance

Whether you’re right here in O'Fallon or driving across the country, Kia Roadside Assistance is here for you 24/7/365. Just call 1-800-333-4 KIA (4542). You’ll need to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) so they can verify coverage, and then you’ll be on your way in no time.

Can I Give the Kia Warranty to a Second Owner?

Yes. It’s that simple.

The 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty is switched to a 5-year/60,000-mile limited powertrain warranty when the vehicle is sold, with the remainder transferring to the new owner. The following warranties have their remainders transferred as well:

  • 5-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty.
  • 5-year/100,000-mile limited anti-perforation warranty.
  • 5-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance plan.

Not only does this best the Honda warranty and increase the vehicle’s resale value, but it also helps to give the new owner peace of mind and could make it easier to sell or trade-in your Kia when you’re ready.
