The all-new Kia family of cee’d models will be backed by the ‘best’ new vehicle guarantee ever offered, by any manufacturer, on cars marketed in the UK and Europe with every Kia cee’d benefiting from a seven-year / 150,000 kilometre new car warranty.
Comprising five years cover on the entire car and an additional two years cover for the powertrain, the warranty will be free and transferable to subsequent owners, provided the vehicle is regularly maintained in accordance with the servicing schedule.
“Kia has taken the bold step of introducing a surprising warranty for the model which will unquestionably demonstrate our brand’s ‘Power to Surprise’ to consumers in Europe,” enthused Jean-Charles Lievens, Senior Vice President Kia Motors Europe. “The Kia cee’d is truly a landmark model in our brand’s history and its debut marks the start of a new era.
“The Kia cee’d is going to be a great car, a genuine challenger for top honours against the established stars in the closely-fought C-segment. Thanks to the high quality of vehicles coming from our brand-new facility in Slovakia, Kia is delighted to demonstrate its commitment to delivering maximum customer satisfaction, together with lowered costs of vehicle ownership by offering this revolutionary warranty,” added Lievens.
The seven-year warranty is a further endorsement of Kia’s three core brand values - quality, trustworthy, dynamic - and will come into effect for UK customers when the new cee’d goes on sale on 1 February, 2007.Published 28 September 2006
