Kia is readying an approved used car sales scheme for launch later in the year, whatcar.com has learned.
Although the scheme hasn't yet been formerly announced, we understand it will be called Kia Kudos and will offer the best selection of second-hand Kias in the country.
The company is researching what used-car buyers expect from a franchised dealer. Manufacturer approved used schemes tend to offer the best cars at the highest prices - and are often considered the safest way to buy a second-hand car.
Kia plans to cherry-pick the best bits from other manufacturers' schemes for Kia Kudos. That means it could offer a no-quibble exchange programme if buyers aren't 100% happy with their purchase, and a water-tight warranty in case things go wrong.
