I bought an 03 Sorrento a year ago with 39000 miles on it.
Budget car sales said the 03 had a transferable 10/100
warranty.Is this true?If it is not then I will unload
it at 60000 miles.So far the things that have been fixed
under warranty are 1.lift struts for hatch replaced 2.
drivers door seal replace,3.left headlight and both
brake lights,4.Diode to fix dome light and door locks
being erratic.This is all minor BS and it is better
than the Explorer or Outback I have owned.$50 does not
fill it up and that's an ouch!

Never owned a Kia but I have owned a Hyundai. Believe they're the same.
If I remember the power train warranty ends at 60,000 miles on transfers. All of the things you mention are non-power train related and would end at 60K anyway (do I remember this correctly, it's been almost 2 years).
Question-- Why would you be unloading a high depreciation car because of the warranty if you'd had good luck with it? My Malibu Maxx stops at 36 thou. and I'm expecting to run it to 150.
Crappy mileage is another thing, and do think these are gas hogs.
BTW-- why are you posting this on the Rio boards?

#142 of 145 My local Kia dealer is really good

I bought my '06 Rio5 from Russ Darrow Kia in Madison WI...they've been great every time I go in to have my little scoot serviced, was just there this morning for an oil change. I have to say, I'm really liking my Rio5. It had 6 miles on it when I picked it out in March, and has over 17.5K on it now. It's been delightful, the only issue I have is I blew a speaker, but I've been looking for an excuse to upgrade anyway.
Dang look at the boards now...I get sidetracked for a few weeks and look what happens!
