All car warranties serve one overall purpose: to give the owner peace of mind. If you plan to keep your Hyundai beyond the original factory warranty coverage, we recommend purchasing an extended auto warranty plan.
These vehicle service contracts protect you from costly bills due to breakdowns. While they’re not designed to cut down on regular maintenance costs, extended warranties can be lifesavers when it comes to expensive repairs.
Aside from protecting most major components, extended warranties can be further tailored to your preferred amount of coverage, time, mileage, and other details. For example, you can opt to include coverage for high-tech components like front- and rear-view cameras, navigation systems, and more.
Most plans include additional services, such as 24/7 roadside assistance or reimbursement for a rental car in case yours is in the shop. Many extended warranty providers will also take care of all paperwork and payment associated with repairs.
With the right extended car warranty, the coverage, extra service, and peace of mind are worth the price. Hyundai offers factory and extended warranty coverage for all new car purchases and CPO warranty coverage for select used car purchases. Coverage is also available from third-party warranty companies.
Our Manufacturer Extended Warranty Survey
In December 2023, our team polled 1,000 drivers with automaker warranty coverage, including Hyundai contract holders. A total of 55 respondents had Hyundai extended warranty plans. We asked consumers how much they paid for their coverage, and here’s what they reported:
- 25 percent reported paying under $1,000
- 25 percent reported paying $1,000 to $2,000
- 24 percent reported paying $2,000 to $3,000
- 7 percent reported paying $3,000 to $4,000
- 5 percent reported paying $4,000 to $5,000
- 13 percent were unsure how much they had paid
Pricing can vary widely depending on the level of coverage you choose.
Drivers were mostly satisfied with the level of coverage selected. One contract holder with an Elantra that had between 50,000 and 100,000 miles said, “Everything is great, no problems. I submitted a claim for a new transmission. It was approved and I was very happy.”
