Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Kia Picanto hatchback?
If you are buying a Kia Picanto that’s being advertised with the balance of the manufacturer warranty, make sure it has been serviced in accordance with Kia’s guidelines. If any of the previous owners have failed to do so, the warranty could be invalid.
With that taken care of, check the car for scrapes and scratches that can result from lots of city-centre driving, because even if these don’t stop you buying the car, they can be used as bargaining points. In particular, look carefully at the tyres for signs of kerb damage, which could compromise their safety.
