  4. 2013 Dash went out momentarily, dealer refusing to honor warranty

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I recently brought my 2013 Kia Soul base model to the dealer with a rod knock. They diagnosed the rod knock quite quickly, then informed me a week and a half later that during a test drive the mechanic claims the dashboard flicked out. They have absolutely no evidence that this happened, but...

    As the recent owner of a 2014, am I entitled to what is left on original OEM warranty? I can ask dealer when I get a chance but thought some here might know.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi, I have Kia Soul 2016, less then 3 years of ownership from purchase, less then 40K km driven. I looked at my KIA warranty conditions, was not able to find something specific to rotors (disk brakes). Are these parts covered by 3 year warranty or they are treated the same way as brake pads...

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Tire warranty 'not worth the paper it's written on,' B.C. man says after manufacturer refuses to pay out We should probably replace the OEM tires (circa 47K kilometres) on our 2015 Kia Soul before next winter so I have been looking at a few posts on the subject. I thought this article might...

    Kia Soul News
    Sorry originally posted this as a reply in Kia Soul News Thread by mistake. Maybe got the right spot this time. Just informational. This seems like the most appropriate place to post this. I have never dealt with this particular dealer. Bill Byrd Kia of Panama City Florida is offering a 20...

  11. [Canadians] what up with the Kia Warranty?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    why do US owners get 10yr/100K while us Canucks only get 5yr/100K? not complaining, just curious. is there a reason for this? i average 7.5K/8.5K a year, but i'm pretty sure i'm in a minority percentage of drivers in Canada. does Kia believe Canadians, on the whole, drive more than our...
  12. Extended Warranty

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I'm just wondering how people feel about buying the warranty. I bought my 19 Soul 6 weeks ago. I did buy a warranty. 10 yr 100,000 mile. Its $100 deductible per repair after the 60,000 Kia warranty expires. So its really only good for 40,000 more miles. I'm ashamed to say I paid...
  13. 2014 headlight flickering warranty

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Received a note from KIA yesterday about extending the headlight warranty for their 2014 souls for "flickering headlights". 15 years of coverage offered should your headlights flicker. I'm a little surprised KIA isn't simply handling this as a recall given that headlights are kind of a...

  15. Brand New Kia Soul Tires Not Covered By Warranty?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Is this for real or is my Kia dealer pulling a fast one? I leased a brand new Kia Soul in 2016. As a retired Senior, I don't drive that much and so far have put less than 5,000 miles on it in two years. I've gone beyond the required maintenance and have had the oil changed, fluids and tires...

  17. CPO 10 year/100,000 mile warranty CAN be transferred to a THIRD owner

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    This got buried in another warranty-related thread so I thought I’d highlight it in its own thread. I think a lot of 3rd owners are potentially leaving thousands of miles/several years of warranty coverage unclaimed because this doesn’t seem to be common knowledge. CPO owners get the remainder...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I bought a car at a dealership an hour and a half away from where I live. But there is a dealership within 20 minutes of where I do live. Is my warranty only good at the dealership I bought the car or at all Kia dealerships? Reason for asking: My check engine light came on and I would assume...

    Interesting read. It's about Ford but thinking other makers will have some similar guidelines. There is a link to the actual Ford document in the article.
