Johannesburg - Earlier in February, Wheels24 reported that Hyundai has launched a seven-year or 200 000km warranty in South Africa. The Korean automaker's sister brand, Kia, has followed suit with the launch of a 5-year or 'Unlimited Mileage Warranty' locally. .
The warranty replaces the automaker's current 5-year or 150 000km and is applicable to all new Kia models from June 1 2016.
'Even stronger residuals'
David Sieff, marketing director for Kia South Africa, said: "The class-leading global quality of our cars have already been firmly established through our exceptional achievements in the JD Power Initial Quality Survey, and the new warranty we offer proves just how reliable KIA vehicles are, regardless of how much driving you do."
Gary Scott, sales director for Kia South Africa, said: “Taxis, sales representatives, longhaul transporters and other drivers who can easily exceed 30 000km a year will see great value in this offering. Second-hand buyers will also benefit from knowing that the first owner’s mileage has not impacted on their warranty cover. We believe this will support even stronger residuals than currently experienced by Kia in South Africa."
