Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Kia Ceed hatchback?
With the long warranty being such a draw for Kia buyers, it’s vital to check that the one for your potential purchase is still valid. By that we don’t just mean ensuring the car is less than seven years old and has covered fewer than 100,000 miles, but that it has been serviced to schedule by a Kia dealer. A full service history is therefore essential.
Have a good look around for any scrapes to the bodywork that could serve as a negotiation point, and be aware that the larger alloy wheels on higher-spec models are more vulnerable to kerb damage. The Cee'd's interior generally wear well, although it’s still possible to scratch the plastics when doing runs to the tip or throwing your keys into a door bin.
