In a bid to reward customers for their loyalty over the years, Kia has rolled out an exclusively special program to reward its car owners with up to 25% discount on all repairs for old models.
“It offers waivers ranging from 15% to 25% on service cost and genuine parts,” it explained, adding, “these discounted pricing are premised on the years of Kia ownership, as it progressively reduces the cost of maintenance based on the years the car has been in operation.
“More often than not, old car owners are fazed with the increasing cost of ownership owing to the depreciating parts of the cars and the need to continuously replace them to keep their vehicles in top condition. To ensure that its customers have the best experience with their old cars at an incredibly affordable price, Kia has launched the Kia Ownership Rewards Program tagged KORP. The rewards program is available on parts and labor charges, basic maintenance, battery replacement, select suspension and air conditioning parts, brakes, routine service parts amongst others.
“Additionally, the old Kia owners will be entitled to special discounts on Bodyshop repairs and painting.
Also on the development, Sanjay Tatpati, Chief Operating Officer, Kia Motors Nigeria was quoted to have described the promo as a value-added service to Kia’s service portfolio to drive customer satisfaction at its peak.
