Mississauga, Ontario – Kia Canada has announced the launch of a new Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program (CPOV). The program backs all CPOV vehicles with a 1-year/12,000 km comprehensive warranty and 24-hour roadside assistance plan.

The program is a partnership of Kia, Lion’s Gate Marketing Company, and Omni Warranty Corporation.

“Our Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program expands the choices our customers have when making their vehicle purchase decisions,” said Robert Staffieri, marketing manager for Kia Canada. “We are confident that consumers will find that our Kia Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles receive the same high attention to quality as our new vehicles.”

Vehicles in the program must meet stringent standards, and only vehicles that are less than six model years old and have less than 120,000 km are eligible for participation. Additionally, only Kia vehicles originally sold in Canada by an authorized Kia dealer, and returned to an authorized Kia dealer, meet the program’s strict participation criteria. Vehicles must then pass a multi-point inspection process covering the powertrain, chassis and all safety-related systems, and required repairs are performed by Kia certified technicians.

The vehicle also includes 1-year/12,000 km comprehensive warranty, in addition to any remaining 5-year/100,000 km original manufacturer’s warranty; 24-hour roadside assistance; a 7-day/1,000 km no-hassle exchange privilege; multi-point mechanical and safety inspection; CarProof history report; and a $500 grad bonus to recent high school and post-secondary graduates.
