hello everyone

i recently bought a forte koup, which i am very pleased with, but found today that kia does not have the 10yr powertrain warranty anymore.... when did this happen?

i remember the dealer saying 5 years but i guess it didnt hit me till now... thought kia and hyundai were suppose to have the best warranty. i know Mitsubishi still has their 10yr powertrain

I just bought a new 2011 this week and there's nothing on the sticker/documentation that's changed. Everything still says 5/60 on everything with a few exceptions and 10/100 on engine. 10/100 still not transferrable.

Just passing along my experience.

i bought mine 2 weeks ago aswell. im located in canada tho so thats probably why theres a difference.... pretty shitty tho, i mean... same car, just different country. i get that they are run buy 2 separate companies kinda but same brand. im sure if anything goes wrong it would be within the 5 years anyways but would have been nice.

FYI guys, if you dont mind answering a question of mine. i posted in the 2.0L discussion(got a EX forte koup) called "6th gear in EX". easier for you guys to read the post rather then me repeat myself.

thanks guys

Yep - I just bought mine last week, and it's 5/60 and 10/100. The warranty is one of the reasons I bought my Forte. Other than the fact that the Koup SX is just a damn sexy car....lol!
