Are Kia Good Quality Cars?

July 24th, 2017 by


It’s one of the first questions a driver asks themselves when shopping for a new vehicle: quality. So, are Kia good quality cars? We’re a bit biased, but the team at Commonwealth Kia says yes – don’t worry, we have some impartial folks to back us up. For two years in a row Kia has been named the Highest Ranked Brand in Initial Quality by J.D. Power and Associates. So if you’re thinking of purchasing a new car, think Kia. Read on to discover the extensive Kia warranty and greater details on that initial quality award.

The Kia Warranty

Perhaps the most reassuring part of owning a Kia—and yet most easily overlooked—is the warranty included with each new Kia. There are few luxury automakers who can compete with this kind of warranty coverage, and non-luxury brands like Honda and Toyota fall short of it by a wide margin:

  • 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty
  • 5-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty
  • 5-year/100,000-mile limited anti-perforation warranty
  • 5-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance plan

Each of these warranties covers either the yearly or total mileage figure—which comes first comes—and applies to vehicles manufactured from 2008 on. The best way to keep your Kia in good shape is to visit a friendly Kia servic center, like ours. We’ll take care of routine maintenance, unexpected repairs, and all of your Kia warranty coverage.

Kia’s Industry Reputation

Meanwhile, Kia also boasts an impressive reputation, which is only getting better. According to the J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality survey, Kia drivers reported fewer problems than any other automaker in their first 90 days of ownership. While Kia topped the list last year as well, this year they improved their score by 8%! The closest competitors to Kia as far as initial quality are concerned are Genesis and Porsche – good company to be in.

Test Drive a Kia Today

Of course, there’s no better way to learn what makes Kia such a distinguished company then to drop by a Kia dealership and test drive one of these cars. And Haverhill, Lowell, and Salem drivers are lucky to have Commonwealth Kia in nearby Lawrence, which offers up a wide inventory of Kia models and some low prices to boot.
