Hyundai introduces industry-leading warranty
Toronto, Ontario – Hyundai Auto Canada announced an improved new vehicle warranty with the longest coverage in the industry. The basic warranty has increased from 3 years/60,000 km to 5 years/100,000 km. The powertrain warranty has increased from 5 years/100,000 km to 7 years/120,000 km. In addition, 24 hour roadside assistance is extended to 5 years/100,000 km.
“There is no auto warranty in Canada that even comes close to providing the consumer with this much protection,” said Steve Kelleher, President and Chief Executive Officer, Hyundai Auto Canada. “If you build them better, you can back them better, and we’re doing just that. Canada’s Best Warranty is our commitment to Canadians who have expressed a desire for a hassle-free automotive experience.”
Hyundai’s new warranty is transferable, so even if a consumer sells their Hyundai before the warranty expires, the car remains under warranty with the new owner.
