2020 Kia Optima lineup

Are you looking for a reliable sedan for your daily drives through Delaware and Worthington? If so, you’re likely curious about the Kia Optima warranty! You’ll be glad to know that the Kia powertrain warranty and basic warranty cover dozens of repairs for up to ten years or 100,000 miles!

Take a look at the Kia warranty coverage, then learn how long they last and if they’re transferable with our team at Byers Kia! We’re here to help ensure that you’re making an informed buying decision in Westerville.

Kia Basic Warranty

The Basic Kia Warranty—which includes the Kia bumper to bumper warranty—covers your Optima for 5 years or 60,000 miles–whichever comes first. This warranty covers everything except wear and tear damage and maintenance. After all, it covers everything “bumper to bumper!” To be sure of everything this includes, and excludes, be sure to check your Optima owner’s manual. This will have updated information for your specific model year and trim.

Kia Limited Powertrain Warranty

The Kia 10-year/100,000 mile warranty program of powertrain coverage starts after your Optima’s first service. As with the basic warranty, you Kia powertrain warranty doesn’t cover regular wear and tear. However, it does cover:

  • Engine: Cylinder block, cylinder head and all internal parts, timing gear, seals and gaskets, valve cover, oil pump, water pump, flywheel, and turbo charger
  • Transaxle: Drive shafts, bearings, seals and gaskets, front hubs, and universal joints
  • Axle: Axle shafts and C-V joints, hub and wheel bearings, and seals
  • Transmission: Transmission case, seals, gaskets, torque converter and all internal parts, and transfer case
  • Differential: Front and rear differential assemblies, cases, all internal parts, and seals and gaskets
  • Propeller Shaft: Universal joints and drive shafts

Is the Kia Warranty Transferable?

While the Kia 10 year/100,000 mile warranty program is available on most pre-owned Kia models, the Powertrain Limited Warranty isn’t transferrable. So when you’re looking to sell to the next Kia owner or get into a pre-owned Kia Optima yourself, keep in mind that not all of the warranties will carry over to a used model.
