It’s one thing to read buyer’s guides and reviews of the latest Hyundai models, but what’s it like to own one as the odometer rolls into five digits—and beyond? MotorTrend editors have seen Hyundai cars and SUVs advance in quality, technology, and performance in recent years. Still, the Korean brand includes a generous standard warranty to help shake any lingering notions of subpar construction or design. Here’s what Hyundai’s warranties cover.

Hyundai New Vehicle Limited Warranty

Bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage for Hyundai vehicles spans five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. The coverage includes defects in materials and workmanship that arise despite normal use and care of the vehicle. This relates to various exterior, interior, electronic, and chassis components. Exemptions include the paint, which is covered for three years or 36,000 miles.

Certain basic service adjustments, and parts and accessories, are included for the first year or 12,000 miles. Routine maintenance services like oil and other fluid changes, filter replacements, wiper blades, and certain burned-out bulbs and fuses are not covered. Additionally, vehicles that have been modified or damaged may be excluded from most aspects of warranty coverage.

Hyundai Powertrain Warranty

Warranty coverage for Hyundai powertrains—that is, the engine, transmission, and other hardware associated with getting power to the wheels—is 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Powertrain parts include components inside the engine block and cylinder head, various gears, seals, shafts, bearings, pumps, and turbocharger in vehicles so equipped. It does not cover normal wear items like spark plugs, or the clutch lining in manual transmission vehicles.

Note that the powertrain warranty applies to the original vehicle owner only and is not transferable to subsequent owners. If you sell the car, the next owner will have 5-year/60,000-mile coverage.
