Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

Generally the power train warranty expires when it expires...so it's likley not covered...you would need to talk to the service manager at the dealership...if you get no where file a case with Kia of North America

if I take a car in for repair that is not under warranty and Kia fixes it and I pay it has no implied warranty for the work done

If it's customer pay it's generally 12/12 .Depending on the repair and the shop policy

Thanks for your response John pretty much means if I pay the work is held to a higher standard If your under warranty but close expect a bandaid not surgery. Have a good evening sir

Not 100 percent....they don't stretch the vehicle factory coverage.... Does not mean they cobbled a patch repair
