The Details of Kia Fuel Economy

At Kia, we value our customers, and building long-term, trust-based relationships with our owners is the foundation of our business.  We are committed to being transparent about our revised fuel economy ratings and responsive to customer concerns.  That’s why we have established this site to provide accurate and up-to-date information about the vehicles involved and our reimbursement program.  We are as dedicated as ever to ensuring our vehicles deliver outstanding fuel economy in order to provide greater value and efficiency.

As of December 23, 2013, Kia has entered into an agreement with plaintiffs who are seeking to represent all current and former owners and lessees of vehicles affected by the November 2012 restatement of fuel economy ratings. The proposed settlement would offer affected customers an alternative to the reimbursement program with lump sum payment options. Further information regarding the settlement will be shared once the settlement is finalized and approved by the Court. In the interim, customers affected by the restatement may still participate in the existing lifetime reimbursement program.
