Kia's rapid move to greater quality and reliability as a match for its legendary value has created another reason for new car buyers to consider Kia with the announcement today that all Kia vehicles sold from 1 January 2008 will be covered by a standard, factory-backed five-year warranty.

5yr UNLIMITED KM warranty. Believe it or not, Most of the rest of the world did not get our stellar warranties. Look at our friends in Canadiavillelandtucky.

That's good news since Kia is pretty much a Hyundai.

Hyundai and Kia is smart, there seems to be greater competition for a huge warranty in the states. while here in Australia most companies only offer 3years / 100,000km warranties.

Hyundai has always had the best warranty on the market here. So 5yrs / unlimited kilometers is excellent for us.

From what i can remember Hyundai's warranty in Australia has gones something like this...

1994 ---> 1999 - 3years / 100,000km warranty
2000 ---> 2006 - 5years / 130,000km warranty
2007 ---> Current - 5years / unlimited warranty

The only company to offer a warranty close to Hyundai's is Mitsubishi with 5years / 130,000km warranty

10 years warranty is huge! That would mean my Excel would have just ran out of warranty!
