I was told by my dealer that you get one free alignment before 12 months/12,000 miles are up... Not sure if that is Hyundai policy or dealer-specific... You might want to ask.I am taking it in next week for an alignment. I agree re the weight concern being a non-issue but have contacted Hyundai to get their take on it.
If the uneven wear is caused by a defect such as a tie rod end they yes they should replace it. You can call the corporate office for assistance.I checked with both Hyundai and Bridgestone and both are saying the tire wear is not covered by a warranty. Bridgestone say they do not warranty tires that come with the vehicle, Hyundai say they don't warranty the tires at all....
But does not cover tires. Just FYI. Have had 8 Hyundai’s and tires/alignment is not covered. Also sold them for 2months in off season.
Covers repair or replacement of any Hyundai Genuine Replacement Parts or Accessories supplied by Hyundai that are defective in material or factory workmanship, under normal use and maintenance.
Genuine Hyundai Parts or Accessories supplied by Hyundai and purchased from an authorized Hyundai dealer, but not installed by an authorized Hyundai dealer, are covered for 12 months/unlimited miles.
Accessories installed on a vehicle at the time of, or prior to, the vehicle's date of first use are covered under the 5-Year/60,000-Mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Accessories installed after the vehicle's date of first use are covered for 12 months/12,000 miles.
It covers defective material ,workmanship under normal use so your uneven tire wire should be covered as long as you can convince dealer it was normal use>
I will be very interested on what caused the uneven tire wear and when you noted the tire wear at first service how many miles did you have. I know these vehicles do get bounced around during shipping and alignments can be off . I have a suggestion you might plead your case to the dealerships general manger if you bought it at that dealer and he can pull some strings to get it taken care of as i have done so in the past.With the holidays I haven't had the alignment done as of yet. Once I do I will update with the findings. My contact has been with both Bridgestone and Hyundai customer support. Both state the tires have no warranty regardless..the tire condition was noted at the first service
