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