Hyundai Motor Company and its portfolio of brands are known for great warranties. Kia, in particular, offers one of the best vehicle warranties.

According to Kia, 2008 model years and every model year after 2008 are covered by a 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty. In short, Kia will take responsibility for any 2024 Kia Telluride powertrain issues within the 10-year/100,000-mile period (whichever comes first).

MarketWatch calls Kia’s powertrain coverage “above average.” A coverage period of 10 years sounds amazing, but the reality is that most drivers will reach 100,000 miles in seven years or less. Still, the warranty is far superior to many competitors’ average five-year/60,000-mile warranty. Kia models receive coverage for at least an additional two years, which is something to consider when choosing a vehicle.

Kia’s warranty program also includes a five-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty. This covers replacing and repairing vehicle components (not to be confused with maintenance). The warranty program also features a five-year/100,000-mile limited anti-perforation warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance plan.

Does Kia offer a good warranty program?

Kia’s warranty program is far superior to many of its rivals. South Korean automaker Hyundai Motor Company and its portfolio of brands may not produce the most reliable vehicles in the industry, but warranty programs like Kia’s are very reassuring.

Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis have all made huge strides in recent years with the release of new nameplates and the popularity of existing nameplates. The company and its brands are becoming a true force to be reckoned with in the industry. Hyundai won the World Car of the Year award twice in a row for its electric vehicles. Its brands have been winning awards as well.

The Kia Telluride has made a name for itself since hitting the scene in 2019. In just three model years, the Telluride has risen to the top of its segment and maintains dominance. Anticipation for the 2024 Kia Telluride is high because of the reputation that the nameplate has built.

The 2024 Kia Telluride starts at $35,990 but costs $37,355 with the destination fee. Unfortunately, it is the most expensive iteration of the midsize SUV yet, costing roughly $330 more than the 2023 Kia Telluride.

The new Telluride will use the same 3.8-liter V6 engine as in previous years. Kia’s biggest change to the Telluride is the addition of new amber daytime running lights to every trim. All other alterations are minor cosmetic changes.

The 2024 Kia Telluride comes standard with SynTex seat trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and smart cruise control with stop-and-go. It also includes rear parking sensors, blind spot detection technology, and driver attention warning. Expect the Telluride to continue to dominate its segment.
