The Kia Optima has evolved over the years and is now one of the most eye-catching models on the road. But it doesn’t rely on its looks alone; reviewers give the Optima high marks for its hybrid options, technology updates, and competitive market value. Comfortable seating and features such as a panoramic sunroof, heated leather seats, and other connectivity upgrades lend to this model’s dynamic power.
Drivers are automatically eligible for a 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty or can choose a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. This standard coverage is valuable to have for the first few years of ownership, but it doesn’t prepare the driver for repair expenses down the road, when the original manufacturer warranty expires.
You don’t have to wait until your warranty is no longer valid to look into extended coverage options for your vehicle. After all, if your car needs a part replacement or requires repair after the initial coverage date, you’ll be left paying out of pocket. This could result in hundreds, potentially thousands, of dollars in repair and labor costs. The estimated replacement cost for a starter for the Kia Optima ranges from $186 to $554 and likely doesn’t include taxes, installation, or other vehicle repair costs.
There are options available to secure extended coverage for your vehicle which can alleviate the stress that surrounds the need for vehicle repair. Plan eligibility is based on specifications of your car and our customer service team can work with you to customize a plan that fits your needs.
Additional benefits include reimbursement for a rental car, if you’re without your vehicle for a couple of days, roadside and towing assistance – plus, payments are paid directly to the vehicle service provider.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not.
