For a limited period, KIA Motors South Africa is offering customers a free maintenance plan on the KIA Cerato (hatch and sedan) and KIA Soul. Both vehicles already ship as standard with a service plan, which will be upgraded – free of charge – to a comprehensive maintenance plan if purchased by 31 March 2018. The KIA Rio sedan will also benefit from the upgrade to a maintenance plan.
“KIA vehicles have always been renowned for its comprehensive specification levels and the exceptional value for money it offers customers,” says David Sieff, Marketing Director, KIA Motors South Africa. “Our cars also come with exceptional peace of mind, as proven by our unlimited kilometre, 5-year warranty. Now, for a limited time, we add even more peace of mind to three of our core family cars, with the added benefit of more predictable maintenance costs.”
While the service plan included in the purchase price of any new KIA covers all scheduled servicing parts and its associated costs, the upgrade to a maintenance plan adds significant peace of mind because it also covers specified wear-and-tear parts such as the vehicle’s clutch, exhaust, globes, fuses, brake pads, brake discs, shock absorbers, v-belts and wiper blades, to name but a few.
“One of the core benefits of a maintenance plan is not only the peace of mind it brings with regards to the servicing and maintenance of your car, but also the predictability of spend,” says David Sieff. “Because the maintenance plan covers a comprehensive list of wear-and-tear parts, the overall spend on maintenance over the ownership period is reduced, and much easier to plan for. Customers also benefit from having their vehicles serviced and maintained at KIA dealerships and approved service centres, with a guarantee that only highly-skilled KIA technicians are working on their cars, using only Genuine KIA Parts.”
Both the KIA Cerato and the KIA Soul ranked highest for initial quality in their respective segments in the 2017 J.D. Power Initial Quality Survey, ahead of all the German and Japanese brands they compete with. With abundant passenger space, notable luggage space, comprehensive specification levels and a variety of eager, efficient engines, the Cerato and Soul ranges are perfect for urban commuters for young and growing families.
Apart from its industry-leading Unlimited Warranty, 5-year warranty, all applicable Cerato models purchased by 31 March 2018 will have its 5-year/90,000km service plan upgraded – free of charge – to a 5-year/90,000km maintenance plan.
