Is the Kia Warranty Transferable?

Kia Warranty Second Owner Coverage

Kia is known for creating vehicles you can trust with an industry-leading warranty program that offers greater peace of mind through your first years of ownership. But what about buyers who purchase a used Kia? Do they receive any of the perks that new owners enjoy? Yes, the Kia Warranty is transferable – but the coverage changes when the second owner takes over. We provide more answers in this guide from the Friendly Kia team in New Port Richey, FL.

What Kia warranty coverage does the second owner enjoy?

When a Kia warranty is transferred to a second owner, the vehicle’s 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty is swapped for a 5-year/60,000-mile limited powertrain warranty. This warranty provides coverage for vital powertrain components like the engine, transmission, axles, and driveshafts.

All other limited basic warranty, limited anti-perforation warranty, and roadside assistance plan benefits transfer directly to the second owner. The limited basic warranty offers bumper-to-bumper coverage for most vehicle components not covered by the powertrain warranty.
