Kia means ‘rising out of Asia’ in Sino-Korean: we can’t think of a more fitting analogy for such a young company putting out so many high-quality vehicles – and at such a pace, too! From the striking Sportage SUV to the Stinger coupe, it’s one of the most versatile automobile manufacturers going. Which is even more impressive when you consider its cars didn’t even make it to production until 1974. ‘The Power to Surprise’* indeed.
However, the one surprise you truly don’t want from your Kia is an unexpected fault. And to make sure that you aren’t slapped with a huge repair bill, you’ll need to take out an extended car warranty. It’s the best way to guarantee your peace of mind; you’ll be fully protected against unforeseen costs with a comprehensive Kia warranty plan from MotorEasy.
Why Do I Need A Warranty For My Kia?
Our warranties are designed to offer the best combination of cover and value, delivering many features that aren’t available with a Kia manufacturer warranty. Our plans cover:
- Failures identified during MOTs and servicing
- Wear and tear – a feature not present in a standard Kia manufacturer warranty
- Consequential damage as standard, meaning repairs or replacements are covered when directly impacted by a failure
- Failures caused by overheating
- Air conditioning problems

Kia Reliability: A MotorEasy Study
The MotorEasy Reliability Index measures the dependability of a car, as an average of the frequency and cost of repairs for over 1,200 models. It reveals some of the hidden costs of ownership, as well as the likelihood of something going wrong. Each model is given a reliability score ranging from -100 (red), for a high frequency and/or high cost of repair, through to +100 (green), where there is a low frequency and cost of repair.
The index also includes model-specific data on:
- The typical repairs needed for each model, including the percentage of claims for engine, gearbox, electrical system, suspension, braking system and fuel system repairs.
- The average cost for each of the above types of repairs
