Even in an uncertain economy, certain financial strategies always pay dividends. Allocating your resources wisely can help you take advantage of multiple opportunities. Here are several reasons why you should consider parking a certified pre-owned Kia from Burlington Kia in the driveway of your Burlington-area home.
Kia automobiles, whether pre-owned or new, carry one of the strongest warranty programs in existence. When you purchase a pre-owned Kia from Burlington Kia under the Certified Pre-Owned program, you get the ten-year/100,000 mile Limited Powertrain Warranty. This lasts from the manufacturer’s original in-service date (the date the car was first sold) for either ten years or 100,000 miles (whichever comes first).
In addition to the powertrain warranty, you receive the balance of a five-year/60,000-mile basic warranty and the five-year/100,000 anti-perforation (rust-through) warranty. Considering many satisfied Kia owners sell their new Kias only a year or two after purchase to buy the newest model, you could get years of Kia quality and protection in a pre-owned Kia Sorento for the cost of a new Kia Optima.
A new car begins depreciating as soon as you drive off the dealer’s lot. Let the original buyer take the 40 percent drop in value the first year. Compare a 2014 Kia to its 2013 pre-owned predecessor and you can see the reward for waiting. You will worry less, too, because you are not as emotionally invested in the car. The first parking lot scratch, the first ding from a shopping cart, or the first dent from a softball tossed by your overeager little leaguer will matter far less.
Kia Peace of Mind
A Certified pre-owned Kia from Burlington Kia passes a 150-point quality inspection. This is closer scrutiny than you could apply to any car yourself, new or pre-owned. But the Certified Pre-Owned program is not your only reassurance that your investment is safe.
You receive all these protections with a pre-owned Kia from Burlington Kia:
- A CARFAX vehicle history report—Independent of Kia and Burlington Kia, the CARFAX report provides a reliable, third-party review of any issues the pre-owned car may have encountered, including flood damage, repair work, inspections and accidents.
- Roadside Assistance—This is in effect for 10 years from the original in-service date and transfers from original owner to you, so you reap the balance of the program. For any limitations and exclusions, please ask to review the limited warranty.
- Travel Breakdown Coverage—Like Roadside Assistance, this protection is in effect for 10 years from original in-service date, transferring fully to subsequent owners with some exclusions and limitations.
When neighbors gaze admiringly at the new Kia Sportage parked in your driveway, you need not share with them the secrets of your financial wisdom that allowed you to afford it. With the confidence that comes from the 150-point inspection and the full coverage you get, you may be the only one to know your car is pre-owned.
There may be no sense telling everyone what you will be doing with the money you saved by buying a pre-owned Kia instead of a new model. When you take the family on a two-week vacation, if everyone wants to assume you earned a large raise, let them.
Buying a pre-owned Kia expands your purchasing power and increases your opportunities—to travel, to invest, to save for a vacation home or a college fund.
The only way to completely satisfy yourself about the benefits of a pre-owned Kia from Burlington Kia is to come in for a test drive. Check out 2013 and 2014 pre-owned Kias from the Soul to the Sedona. It’s a great opportunity!
