Are Extended Warranties Worth It?

Man and Woman Signing Contract

An extended warranty offers added protection from any defects that could prevent your new KIA or used KIA vehicle from running properly. Most Jefferson County area drivers are wondering, are extended warranties worth the extra cost? The answer depends on the warranty, the vehicle, and what you’ll encounter on your daily Chardon area drive.


KIA Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty

New KIA models, as well as Certified Pre-owned models, come with a comprehensive warranty that protects you from manufacturer defects. This means if there’s an issue with the vehicle due to part failure during the warranty terms, KIA has you covered. KIA’s industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile warranty program is a testament to their commitment to quality. The 10-year/100,000 mile warranty programconsists of:

  • 10-year/100,000 mile limited powertrain warranty
  • 5-year/60,000 mile limited basic warranty
  • 5-year/100,000 mile limited anti-perforation warranty
  • 5-year/60,000 mile roadside assistance plan

What’s the Cost of a Protection Plan?

The cost of a protection plan can vary and is dependent on the level of coverage, the age of the vehicle, and other factors. For some drivers, the extra cost could be an unnecessary expense, drivers from St Louis to St Charles have found the KIA bumper-to-bumper warranty is well worth it.

If you’re unsure if you should select a KIA model with an extended warranty, consider the effects of opting out of coverage. You could incur additional costs in the form of repair, should your vehicle have a major mechanical failure. Additionally, you could be left with the expense of rental cars and missed work. For most St. Louis drivers, the additional cost is more than worth it for the peace of mind and security it provides.
