Big news yesterday as Kia's Malaysian operations have officially come under new ownership. In case you've missed it, the new distributor is Dinamikjaya Motors Sdn. Bhd., a subsidiary of Bermaz Auto.
Following that, the new distributor is calling for current Kia owners to hop on to their site and participate in the company's customer information update exercise.
This information, the company says in their Facebook post, will be used to allow their system to check for warranty status and recall notifications, among others.
