99 Kia Elan 1.8L
Not a good time to be wondering about that, something that should always be done before purchase, but its clear you've learnt that lesson.I can hardly wait to find out what else is not covered.
Danage, such as the trim, is never covered by warranty.
No exactly, Kia Corp. is the one that honors warranty, and they give directions to the dealerships performing the warranty work, but an unscrupulous dealership can at times influence the decisions made by Kia Corp.I learned the hard way Kia's coverage is "LIMITED" . ron1004 is absolutely right. Your at the mercy of the dealer.
You'll always find bad dealerships (all manufacturers) but that's not a reflection on the brand.
It was a smart move to decline the selling dealerships BS add-ons, and if you want peace of mind contact another dealership, or Kia Corp. to get the status of your warranty, and I bet you'll find your factory warranty is just as it reads in your owners manual.
You could also ask @cobra259 to confirm your warranty status.
