• Air Conditioner Refrigerant Charge
Air conditioner refrigerant charge is covered for the
first 12 months of the warranty period regardless of
mileage. Over the balance of the warranty period,
refrigerant charge is covered only when replenished
as part of a warranty repair.
• Audio / Entertainment System
An original equipment radio, compact disk player,
OE DVD / RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment System)
or navigation system is covered for the first
The original equipment battery is covered by a
limited warranty for a period of 36 months/36,000
miles. During 36 months/36,000 miles of the
warranty period, a defective battery will be replaced
at no cost to you. Kia will cover diagnostic,
installation and replacement battery costs.
Kia will not reimburse you for any portion of the
cost of a non-Kia replacement battery.
• Brake and Clutch Linings
Brake linings, including pads and shoes, and clutch
linings are warranted for 12 months/12,000 miles,
whichever comes first, if they fail to function
properly during normal use. Brake linings are
designed to wear out as part of the process of
stopping your vehicle safely and consistently while
providing reasonable levels of noise and vibration
during normal use. Brake or clutch linings function
properly during normal use even if they need
replacement in less than the full warranty period.
Rather, most replacements at lower mileage are
required by driver usage habits which can cause high
rates of wear. In addition, brake lining wear is
substantially increased by environmental conditions
such as exposure to road salt or due to regular
driving in stop and go rush hour traffic. The more
wear factors which are present, the more rapid the
wear. Resulting repairs and replacements of linings
are not covered by your warranty.
