The five-passenger, four-door Kia Forte is a sporty sedan that offers ample interior space at a good value. Its gas mileage rate is 23-29 mpg for city driving and 29-38 mpg on the highway. The newest model offers updated features such as connection to Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto, as well as forward collision alert and automatic emergency braking. It was also one of U.S. News Rankings and Reviews finalists for 2017 Best Compact Car for the Money.
Kia vehicle warranties come standard at 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first, or a powertrain warranty which offers coverage for 10 years or 100,000 miles. But what are the options when your original manufacturer warranty expires? How will you pay for repairs that may occur following that contract period?
Fortunately, there are extended coverage plans to help you prepare for the inevitability of vehicle repairs down the road. Depending on the specifications of your vehicle, you could be eligible for a plan that covers many of the major parts that break down over time, including the water pump, alternator, starter, among others. These kinds of repairs could add up to hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.
Choosing a coverage plan can help you gain peace of mind and budget for unexpected costs for vehicle repair instead of paying out of pocket. You can get a free quote and speak to one of our helpful customer service agents to learn about the benefits of each plan and how it can be customized for your vehicle needs. Each plan comes with free roadside assistance and towing services, as well as rental reimbursement.
Once you’re set up with a plan, you’ll have an administrator handling your policy and working on your behalf to make payments to the repair shop and answer any questions regarding your coverage terms. If you’re not sure what you qualify for or have questions about any of the plans, get your free quote and learn about what your coverage options are after your original manufacturer warranty expires.
A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not.
