Its clearly stated in the warranty/service book.
Kia are only following the EU rules on servicing being carried out by independant garages. If the rules are not followed its bye bye warranty.
And just because the garage was a member of the "GOOD GARAGE scheme" does not gaurantee that they have followed the correct schedule, fitted the correct parts or carried out the work at the correct time. The "GOOD GARAGE scheme" is just a trade organisation that ensures the members meet certain standards, means little if those standards are low ones.
Warranties work both ways, the manfacturer has to replace/repair if the owner keeps the vehicle maintained correctly.
