What is not covered by kia warranty?

I have learnt that warranties and insurance have exclusions in their coverage. My brother wants to sell me his KIA Sorento that he has been using for 6 years but i don’t really understand the warranty limitations for the second user/owner.

Some warranties may be fully transferable to second owners, while others may have limited transferability or none at all.


Review the warranty documentation carefully to identify any conditions or exclusions that may apply to second owners.

Kia’s warranty usually shortens for the second owner — from 10 years/100,000 miles to 5 years/60,000 miles, covering basic parts. Check the warranty details for your brother’s Sorento to see what’s included.

Kia’s warranty often changes for second owners. Originally, a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty applies, but this may reduce to 5 years/60,000 miles for subsequent owners, mainly covering basic components. It’s crucial to check the specific warranty terms for your brother’s Sorento to understand what’s included and excluded for you as the second owner.

As the second owner of a Kia Sorento, you may receive limited warranty coverage. The basic warranty is transferable for 5 years or 60,000 miles, and the powertrain warranty for 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Check with Kia or a dealership for specific warranty details and limitations.

Certainly! When the original Kia 10-year/100,000-mile warranty is transferred, it changes to 5 years/60,000 miles (or 100,000 km, whichever comes first).

Kia’s commitment to quality ensures their vehicles are reliable and tested under extreme conditions, offering great support to owners.

Thanks for clarifying the warranty details for second owners of a Kia Sorento. It’s really helpful to know the distinctions between the basic and powertrain warranties and their respective terms.
