From 1 September 2003, The KIApproved Used Car Programme will drive customer confidence onto the road. Kia’s used car programme ensures every used vehicle sold under the scheme undergoes a rigorous 75-point pre-delivery inspection before receiving a ‘KIApproved’ certificate and comprehensive written report. The KIApproved programme has the additional benefit of being available across all manufacturers’ makes and models, not just Kia vehicles.
Paul Williams, Managing Director of Kia Motors (UK) Ltd states: "The KIApproved Used Car Programme has been designed to ensure customer confidence in the history and condition of their new ‘used’ vehicle and to confirm Kia’s continuous commitment to offering outstanding value for money."
Before the vehicle achieves KIApproved status, it must pass strict criteria of vehicle identity, history and mileage checks and be accompanied by a service history. Every KIApproved vehicle will be sold with the remainder of its manufacturer’s warranty (minimum of 12 months) or a minimum 12 months comprehensive KIApproved warranty and be covered by a 14 day conditional exchange plan.
Additional KIApproved options include a 12 or 24-month warranty extension, full RAC coverage, and MOT insurance.
