Following on from its extension of its famous seven-year warranty, to cover the initial period of the Coronavirus lockdown, Kia is now adding on another month's grace to those owners whose warranties are due to expire in May.
Warranty extension for those who bought a Kia in 2013
The initial extension covered those whose warranties were due to be up by the end of April. Kia says that this latest extension will extend the warranty to the end of June, which means that anyone who bought a car back as far as February 2013 will now still be covered by the original seven-year factory warranty.
Aims to help those who can't get to a garage
With many countries and businesses taking precautionary measures to counteract the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kia Promise aims to help customers who may be unable to visit a workshop during this time" said a statement from Kia. "The program also helps customers who are not able to bring their car in for free servicing (or pre-paid maintenance as part of a Kia servicing package) during the nationwide lockdown.
"Prioritising the safety, health and wellbeing of its customers, business partners and employees, Kia Motors continues to closely monitor COVID-19 developments in communities where it does business. The company continuously strives to prevent the spread of the virus at its facilities while working with federal, state and local authorities, complying with all standards set by those entities."
