Hyundai extended warranty – what’s covered
Hyundai extended warranty will cover mechanical and electrical breakdown, as described under the terms of the warranty. The defect will have to be confirmed by Hyundai. In case, the identified problem satisfies the terms and conditions of the warranty, Hyundai dealership will repair or replace the defective part or component. There will be no charges for parts or labour. Parts that will be replaced will be retained by Hyundai.
The warranty will not cover damages that arise from normal wear and tear of the car. A number of mechanical parts, rubber parts and things like leakage of AC refrigerant is not covered. Hyundai will also assess the root cause of the problem.
If there’s evidence that usage guidelines have not been followed and if parts other than Hyundai Genuine Parts have been used, the claim on extended warranty may be denied. Repairs carried out at an unauthorized service centre will also lead to forfeiture of warranty claim. There are various other terms and conditions that can void the extended warranty claims.
Hyundai’s 6th and 7th year extended warranty is likely to be introduced for its upcoming new cars as well. Hyundai’s next launch will be 4th-gen Tucson, which is scheduled to debut on August 04, 2022. The SUV gets a range of best-in-class and segment-first features including ADAS. Prices of new Tucson will be revealed at the time of launch.
