Kia’s 100,000-mile warranty covers powertrain components but not the whole vehicle. On a new car, the Korean automaker offers a five-year/60,000-mile basic bumper-to-bumper warranty that includes coverage against manufacturer defects.
Kia’s powertrain coverage includes engine and transmission components, specifically those listed in the 2009 Kia warranty manual. Like Hyundai’s long-term coverage, Kia’s 100,000-mile warranty is only applicable to the original owner of a new Kia.
According to Kia, the items covered by the Powertrain Limited Warranty include:
In the Engine: Cylinder block, cylinder head and all internal parts, timing gear, seals and gaskets, valve cover, flywheel, oil pump, water pump
In the Transaxle: Transmission case and all internal parts, torque converter, drive shafts, universal joints, front hubs, bearings, seals and gaskets
In the Axles: Axle shafts and C-V joints (couplings), seals, hub and wheel bearings
In the Transmission: Transmission case, transfer case, torque converter and all internal parts, seals, and gaskets
In the Differentials: Front and rear differential assemblies, cases, all internal parts, seals and gaskets
In the Propeller Shafts: Drive shafts, universal joints
