Are you a Kia Forte owner? Are you wondering if Kia Forte repairs are expensive? Even if your Kia warranty hasn’t passed the 10-year/100,000-mile point yet, did you know you could be left paying for costly repairs? Although Kia is famous for its unusually long warranty, it may not cover as much as you think it does. If you are out of the original factory 5-year/60,000-mile warranty, or are close to doing so, you may benefit from a vehicle protection plan!
