As the sales of the all-new Picanto begins in the UK, Kia Motors is offering Kia Care-3 and Kia Care-3 Plus Service Packages for the car.
With the new all inclusive national servicing package, customers can now add a three or five year service package to a Picanto purchase. The Care-3 package is just £259 including VAT, which covers the first three services – either 36 months or 30,000 miles or the Care-3 Plus package is just £499 including VAT which covers the first five services – either 60 months or 50,000 miles.
What these packages offer is a fixed cost and inflation proof servicing for the full three or five years. And Kia assures you it won’t be a botched job either! They promise all work will be carried out by trained product technicians using genuine Kia replacement parts and specified oils.
Customers can purchase the Care-3 or Care-3 Plus service package after the vehicle has been collected – customers have 45 days after initial registration to add this. If a customer wishes to retain the Picanto after three years and originally only had the Care-3 package, a top up can be added for £275 including VAT, to extend the package to the full five years.
The Care-3 and Care-3 Plus package stays with the car, so is fully transferable to another customer. If a second owner would like the five year service package – on a vehicle with a Care-3 package, the new owner can top-up this package to cover the next two years.
Customers opting to buy a new Picanto with Kia Financial Services, can also pay for the Care-3 or Care-3 Plus service package within this agreement.
Hamish McCowan, Director of After Sales and Logistics, said “This is a new direction for Kia and a real cost saver for customers. We want the Kia brand to stand for more than just delivering great products with great quality and a 7 year warranty; we want Kia to be known as a brand that stands for delivering value for money service excellence. Picanto is a fantastic product and this package allows buyers to guarantee the lowest possible service costs throughout their ownership.”
