This chart below shows an overview of the warranty coverage. I guess that it is the corporate and dealer response to ask for help with their vague warranty. If there is a lesson to be learned from all of this, it is for the business owners of the world. Besides the fun job of replacing the timing belt and water pump, I had them do a valve check since I heard some whirring - sticky lifters. I was frightened to say the least and was lucky that I was traveling with a friend.
Only the power train is covered for 10 years. I had to find a way to get to work and needed something that I could drive right away. I am on the recall list for a new small block. Guess what this last repair lasted just 3 weeks. Did you not notice that? In my opinion, your experience sounds extreme. She then remarked about my angry Tweets and even complained about Twitter Private messages I sent.
I did Tweet my frustration since this has been going on and on and on and I feel like Hyundai will do anything to not satisfy the customer. After a ton of complaining and phone calls they finally replaced it for free and kept a customer. Some services may not be applicable to all models and the prices for some models may vary. Sorry that you had a bad experience, but your one incident does not mean that Hyundai is a bad company who does not stand behind their word. The temperature gauge would touch the red zone indicating the engine was overheating, yet the vehicle drove fine. If the engine itself was not the cause of the failure, warranty will be voided.
Oil leak start and progress slowly to lead to more costly damage. Found that leaking is a common problem in windows and into tail lights. But the warranty was a huge factor. Oh, going to a different service centre besides Hyundai dealership doesnt void the warranty. At least they offered to pay for some of your repairs. I just crossed Hyundai off my list. The road side serive that Hyundai uses is worthless its a rip off.
Have a 2004 Hyundai Elantra and so far no problems yet. The 100k warranty seems nice but not when you have to use it several times a year. And I wonder if Hyandai power warranty states in detail what is covered and what is not? I sent this to a friend who was going to buy a Genesis. You get what you pay for: a cheap car but took a risk it would fall apart. Service centre just needs to do the service as per requirements by Hyundai, check link below: Ok, struggling to find info on the v belt.
You had warning signs, I am sure of that. I have only about 62 K miles on the car at the moment. I have a feeling even if I showed him this article. Thank you for your pompous post, it helped me make my decision to stay away from Hyundai. Maintenance has been followed in timely manner and I always pay for the higher options. Hyundai is a completely different company.
Yes, some people get 40,000 miles, but some get 30,000 miles, so your experience is not a cause for great alarm. Now it has set her back financially a great deal. Its sounds like their vehicle was over the 5 year 60k major mechanical bumper to bumper warranty this is what is called bumper to bumper and they did not purchase the extended upgraded 10 year 100 k bumper to bumper that would have covered their Sensor not to mention all conpiters, as well as so much more that would have detected the coolant issue so you have not had your issue. First, just because someone has a good experience with Hyundai, does not make them a shill or an idiot. I just came upon this story -I see it is dated years prior but I am hoping folks are still reading……. Hyundai Responds Later that day, the Hyundai service department called me with the skinny.
I do have a problem with customers who try to pull one over on me for their lack of responsibility in taking care of their vehicle and at that point I will deny your claim and have you contact the manufacturer for further help…. Had you noticed it, pulled over and shut down in a timely manner you may have avoided the catastrophic engine damage. The longer warranty means there will be more complaints about warranty service. I was too, until this happened. Did a computer update to try and fix the heat and as I type this my Accent is back in the shop for a 6th time as they try to determine why I keep loosing heat when I turn the fan on. It's a 2009 model and we also got a quote from LiquidCapital as one of the posters mentioned.
The author may not view himself as driving an overheating car as being similar to driving a vehicle with a blown out tire. People should keep in mind Korean chaebols are the undisputed leaders when it comes to internet astroturfing. My warranty was almost up with my truck, so they fixed it. No more Korean made, thanks! They are one of the few companies that will do whatever it takes to make a situation right. I love Hyundai and plan on buying two more in the next couple of years when the kiddos are out of daycare.
