Buying a new Kia

Benefits:

How much do I pay?

When you finance your vehicle purchase, your monthly payments will be determined by the vehicle price, amount of your down payment and trade-in value, interest rate, and length of term.

How long does my finance contract last?

Usually 24 to 72 months.

How many miles can I drive my vehicle?

There are no restrictions. However, more miles driven tends to lower resale or trade-in value.

Can I customize my vehicle?

Add accessories to your vehicle at any time.

What happens at the end of my finance contract?

You will receive your title, lien release, or a letter from us indicating your lien has been released electronically after your final payment has been processed.

Upon release of the lien, you own your vehicle free and clear.
