IRVINE, Calif., April 6, 2020 — Kia Motors America (KMA), in conjunction with Kia Motors Corporation, has launched the Kia Promise warranty coverage extension program which is effective immediately and further enhances KMA’s recently announced Accelerate the Good program.

“These are uncertain times and the Kia Promise warranty extension program will help bring peace of mind to customers affected by this pandemic by giving them one less thing to worry about,” said Michael Cole, president, KMA. “The health and safety of our customers and employees are our top priority and this warranty extension program is yet another way Kia and local Kia dealerships are working to support our customers’ individual needs.”
Qualifying Kia Customers:
- Kia customers who experienced potentially warrantable concerns with their vehicle during the period of March 2020 through May 2020 and were not able to obtain service from a Kia dealer due to circumstances related to COVID-19; and
- Repairs must be completed by June 30, 2020.
Customers should check with their local Kia dealer regarding their current hours and available special programs, such as vehicle pickup and delivery service, loaner vehicles, and electronic or digital repair authorizations, as well as sanitizing efforts taken to protect the safety of employees and customers.
