Kia has received yet another award for its industry-leading, seven-year warranty.

First introduced on the European designed and built Cee’d in 2007, the manufacturer-backed warranty is marking its seventh anniversary and has been lauded with the CarBuyer Buyer’s Award in its 2014 honours.

Since the seven-year warranty was first applied to the Cee’d, 82,884 vehicles have found homes with UK consumers. The warranty was also applied to Sportage models from late 2007.Since January 2010 more than 200,000 Kia customers have benefitted from the warranty.

Commenting on the generous aftersales car package, Paul Philpott, president and chief executive of Kia Motors (UK) said: “Over the last seven years hundreds of thousands of British motorists have benefitted from the security provided by the seven year warranty – across Europe that number rises to millions!

“And still, no-one in the European market has really matched the level of cover and the simplicity of our warranty.

“As we approach the warranty’s seventh birthday it is a great honour that CarBuyer has recognised what a game-changer it has been for both the private and business motorist.”
