Hyundai Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty: What’s Covered?
Each new Hyundai is covered by a standard Hyundai warranty that is referred to as bumper-to-bumper coverage. Typically, this coverage lasts for either five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Emissions components — 8 years/80,000 miles (federal) and 7 years/70,000 miles (California emissions)
While the bumper-to-bumper terminology suggests your car is comprehensively covered, think again. Several areas are not protected by Hyundai’s factory coverage, which means that several components, such as interiors, tires, and oil systems, aren’t covered at all. You’ll have to pay out of pocket for any of these repairs.
Powertrain warranties and bumper-to-bumper warranties are usually two separate coverage levels. One of the biggest differences is that powertrain warranties tend to last longer than bumper-to-bumper warranties. They also cover fewer parts, compared to a comprehensive bumper-to-bumper warranty. This is true for the Hyundai powertrain warranty.
The Hyundai 10-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Warranty covers the repairs or replacement of selected engine and transmission/transaxle components. The parts must have been originally manufactured or installed by Hyundai and be defective in material or factory workmanship.
The full 10-year warranty only applies to the original owner if your model is from 2004 or later. Coverage applies to both the original owner and immediate family members if your model is from 1999–2003.
Is the Hyundai Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty Transferable?
If you decide to sell your vehicle before the Hyundai warranty expires, the bumper-to-bumper warranty and other coverage terms are transferred to the new owner. However, there is one exception. The 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty is reduced to 5 years/60,000 miles for the second owner.
@CVP33: there are some errors in what you posted above. Looks like you got this from carchex.com. I suggest using Hyundai info instead. There is a warranty booklet that comes with your car. You can also see it on myhyundai.com after you log in. Below is a screenshot of a chart in that booklet.
Your list shows audio systems are under warranty for 3y/36,000m. According to the chart below, it's 5y/60,000m. You also list unlimited mile for the battery. According to the chart, it's 36,000m. A few other discrepancies as well.
You say that interior, tires and oil system aren't covered. I beg to differ. See the first line in the chart below, which is not in your list: 5y/60,000m. I most certainly expect the interior to be covered. I would be pretty pissed if I had to replace a power seat within 5y out of pocket, for example. Tires are wear items, so no, they're not covered, except when there's obvious damage, such as flat spots (which is why Hyundai has been replacing tires on some Palisades at the port of entry). I would also expect the oil system (except the filter, of course) to be under warranty as part of the powertrain. I don't see how it couldn't.
Perfect thanks for the corrections. Not my list so no need to apologize or beg or get 'pissed'. Looks like carchex has the battery and audio wrong. This is my wife's vehicle so she can look that up in her owners manual. I'm just the oil change guy.
Compared to the Palisade, My vehicle has a terrible tow rating, awful gas mileage and only seats 2.
