What is the Kia Class Action About? 

The Kia Class Action alleges that certain Kia and Hyundai vehicles lacked an engine immobilizer, making them susceptible to theft and damage. The lawsuit contends these vehicles contain design flaws, specifically the failure to equip the vehicles with an anti-theft device known as an engine immobilizer, thereby increasing their risk of theft.

The class is defined by those who owned or leased the vehicles at any point between January 1, 2016, and January 16, 2024.

Is Proof of Purchase Required in Order to File A Claim? 

Yes, proof is required to claim reimbursement for losses arising from the theft or attempted theft of a class vehicle, out-of-pocket costs incurred when obtaining the free software upgrade, or for the purchase of steering wheel locks or other anti-theft devices.

How Much Money Can I Get? 

The settlement provides various forms of compensation, including:

  • Reimbursement up to 60% of the Black Book value for the total loss of a vehicle due to theft.
