Hyundai offers one of the best warranties in the world on its new vehicles. The warranty includes a 10-year, 100,000-mile power train warranty, a 5-year, 60,000-mile limited warranty and a lifetime warranty on its hybrid batteries.
Some of Hyundai's warranties are transferable while others are only valid for the original owner. Transferable warranties include the limited warranty, anti-perforation warranty, which is good for 7 years, 24-hour roadside assistance, which is good for unlimited miles for 5 years, and the 12-month replacement parts and accessories warranty. This means that if the original owner sells the vehicle, these warranties carry over to the new owner.
Some warranties only cover the original owner of the vehicle. These warranties include the 10-year power train warranty and the lifetime battery warranty for Hyundai's hybrid vehicles.
The power train warranty offered by Hyundai covers things like the engine and transmission. It will cover the repair or replacement of components that were originally manufactured or installed by Hyundai. Second owners of a Hyundai are covered by a 5-year, 60,000-mile limited power train warranty as long as the car is not commercially used. One important note is that the original owner's immediate family is covered under Hyundai's warranty. Therefore, an owner's spouse or children are also covered under the warranty.
