If you bought or leased certain 2010–2020 model year Kia vehicles, you may be eligible for benefits. The only way to receive certain reimbursement and compensation in this Settlement is to file a Claim. Claim Forms must be submitted online via this website, via email, or postmarked no later than April 5, 2024. Claim Forms for any Qualifying Repair, Qualifying Failure, or Qualifying Fire that occurs after June 7, 2023, must be submitted online or postmarked no later than 90 days from the date those costs were incurred or from the date you experienced the Qualifying Failure or Qualifying Fire. Claim Forms received after the deadline, will be deemed untimely and not accepted.

If you are a Class Member, you may submit a claim for one or more of these benefits:

  • Reimbursement for Qualifying Repairs performed on or before June 7, 2023 at a Kia Dealership or at a Third-Party Repair Facility.
  • Compensation for Qualifying Repairs that were previously denied warranty coverage on or before June 7, 2023 by a Kia Dealership and you obtained the repair elsewhere.
  • Compensation for out-of-pocket transportation expenses such as rental car, ride-share, or towing expenses, and in some cases out-of-pocket lodging and reasonable meal expenses, related to a Qualifying Repair, Qualifying Failure, or Qualifying Fire.
  • Compensation for inconvenience due to Qualifying Repair delays at a Kia Dealership exceeding 60 days.
  • Reimbursement for Class Vehicles that had a Qualifying Fire or Qualifying Failure and were sold prior to a repair being performed.
  • Reimbursement for the total loss of a Class Vehicle due to a Qualifying Fire.
  • Compensation for Lost Faith in a Class Vehicle as a result of this Settlement if you experienced a Qualifying Failure or Qualifying Fire.

To obtain Extended Warranty benefits it is not necessary to file a claim however, you generally need to first complete the free KSDS update at a Kia dealership. See FAQ 9 for more information on Extended Warranty.

Please Note: If you make a claim for this reimbursement, Kia and/or the Kia dealer you identify as having performed the repair will also review their records for such documentation.

If you paid in cash, then you must certify under penalty of perjury, that you (or a friend or family member) paid for the rental car, towing, and/or other costs in cash and thus do not have documentation for the payment.

For a successful claim, Kia highly encourages you to provide a copy of any repair orders, emails, letters, or other written communications between you and the dealership and/or Kia America showing that you were denied warranty coverage for a Qualifying Repair.

Please Note: If you make a claim for this goodwill payment, Kia and/or the Kia dealer you identify as having denied coverage will also review their records for such documentation.
