CARPROOF partners with Kia Canada to provide valuable open recall data

LONDON, ON, Oct. 1, 2013 – CARPROOF is pleased to announce a first of its kind data agreement with Kia Canada where open recall information on a specific Kia vehicle will now appear directly on the CARPROOF vehicle history report.

Kia Canada is the first auto manufacturer to share this important recall data with CARPROOF. This new initiative means that CARPROOF customers can now see whether or not the Kia vehicle they’re interested in has an outstanding recall when they order a CARPROOF vehicle history report. Thanks to the CARPROOF report, the customer can verify that all open recalls have been completed prior to purchase.

“We’re proud to partner with Kia Canada on this new data agreement,” said Marty Meadows, Vice President of Data Acquisition and Strategic Partnerships at CARPROOF. “This open recall data will help customers make an informed decision and as a result, they’ll be purchasing that used vehicle with complete peace of mind.”
