Kia Warranty?

My first post here... I am working out a deal to buy a 2009 Borrego, with 32,000 miles on it. There is a noticible problem with the rear hatch lock assembly. It makes a loud buzzing/grinding sound when you unlatch it with the button...

Would that be something that is covered under the warrenty?

What are the terms of the KIA Warranty? Is it transferrable??

Thanks,
ELdon

Welcome to the site.
Yes, it would be covered under the basic 6 year 60,000 warranty. You do not get the 10year,100,000 mile powertrain warranty.

Thanks!! That is good to know.

Bummer about the 100,000 mile warranty...

What are some of the "issues" I should look for?

Actually, you can get the 100,000 warranty if your dealer sells it as a CPO - Certified Preowned. I believe it costs the dealer around $500

There is TSB for the tailgate actuator for vehicles produced between 05/09/2008-07/24/2008. If you are purchasing from a Kia dealer, they should fix it. If not take it to your local Kia dealer. You can view all Kia TSBs at:
Kia Global Information System (KGIS)
You will need to establish a login.

Ours makes a noise while we open and close the hatch is that normal? Or is it supposed to be silent?

normal... Just don't slam the door like you would with a different vehicle. Just barely set it down, the motor latch will pull it in.
