You should exercise the utmost care to prevent damage to your vehicle and/or injury to yourself whenever performing any maintenance or inspection procedures.
Should you have any doubts concerning the inspection or servicing of your vehicle, we strongly recommend that you have a reliable and qualified service shop perform this work, preferably an Authorized Kia Dealer. An Authorized Kia Dealer has factory-trained technicians and genuine Kia parts to service your vehicle properly. For expert advice and quality service, see an Authorized Kia Dealer.
Inadequate, incomplete or insufficient servicing may result in operational problems with your vehicle that could lead to vehicle damage, an accident or personal injury.
Repairs and adjustments required as a result of improper maintenance or a lack of required maintenance are not covered.
Where should I have the maintenance performed?
We recommend that an Authorized Kia Dealer using genuine Kia parts perform such maintenance.
However, such maintenance may be performed by any competent automotive repair establishment using automotive parts equivalent to those with which your vehicle or engine was originally equipped.
