I suggest yo buy glass replacement insurance for your Kia EV. Just got mine replaced to the tune of $1,000.
My carrier has separate windshield add-on. Need to check price now that I have new windshield.Most policies with comprehensive fire, theft, collision, etc. have coverage after the dedictible you sign up is applied usually in increments of $500 starting with $0.
That's going to happen with many, if not all brands. The dealers likely have an agreement with the manufacturer to only repair vehicles sold in their country. There could be legal reasons they can't as well. But that doesn't mean you can't buy parts from a US dealer, if that's where you can find them and the price is better. You don't have to provide a VIN to purchase most parts.I live in Mexico and I tried to get a quote from a Kia Dealership in Texas but since it is a "Mexican" VIN, they wouldn't do it. The reason I purchase vehicles that are sold both in Mexico and the USA are to have a greater choice of spare parts. So I guess I might not purchase a Kia again.
