America’s Best Warranty
How important is peace of mind to you? What is the value of worry-free driving?
The next time you’re looking for a new vehicle in Louisville – stop at Bob Montgomery Chevrolet and ask “How long is the Chevy Cruze’s bumper-to-bumper warranty?” Or visit Sam Swope Honda World or Neil Huffman Nissan and inquire about their vehicle’s engine and transmission warranty. What do you think Bill Collins Ford will say about the warranty on your new Ford F-150? Does Ford’s standard powertrain warranty cover repairs after 5 years or 60,000 miles? No, but Hyundai’s does. Ask them how they compare to Hyundai’s warranty and they will undoubtedly tell you the same thing as Town & Country Ford or Cross Chrysler Jeep: Hyundai has America’s Best Warranty.
Have you ever driven down Shelbyville Road or Preston Highway and wondered, “How long before my vehicle breaks down?” Perhaps you’ve been searching online for new cars in Louisville, KY and wondered, “Who has the best powertrain warranty?”
A quick search will reveal that Hyundai covers the repair or replacement of powertrain components (i.e., selected engine and transmission/trans-axle components) for 10 years / 100,000 miles. That means vehicle components that were originally manufactured or installed by Hyundai that prove to be defective in material or factory workmanship are covered (as long as it broke under normal use and maintenance). Even better, this amazing warranty coverage not only applies to the original owner but also their immediate family members (i.e. husband, wife, son, stepson, daughter, stepdaughter, etc)! Can Bachman Nissan or Tafel Motors say the same?
Want even more good news? If you decide to sell your vehicle, subsequent owners of your Hyundai will keep the remainder of the 5-Year/60,000-Mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty! This excludes people using their vehicles for commercial purposes (i.e., delivery services, taxi cabs, rental vehicles, etc.), however.
“That’s great,” you say. “But there’s lots of technology in these cars – what about THAT stuff?”
We’re proud of our warranty and we want you to understand why Hyundai is the BEST. So here are the specific components that are covered, how long they are covered, and the mileage limits:
- The vehicle’s battery is covered for 3 years/unlimited miles. For the first two years/unlimited miles, the battery is 100% covered. After 2 years but within 3 years, 25% of the battery’s cost is covered and 100% of the labor costs are covered).
- The air conditioner’s coolant is covered for 1 year/unlimited miles.
- If adjustments must be made – they are covered for 1 year/12,000 miles
- Paint is covered 3 years/36,000 miles (for specific details, contact our service department)
- Components that are subject to wear and tear such as brake pads and linings, belts, clutch linings, wiper blades, filters, bulbs, and fuses are covered for 1 year/12,000 miles
- The vehicle’s radio and audio systems (i.e. the CD player, the GPS system, DVD player, and Bluetooth®) are covered for 3 years/36,000 miles.The Equus is covered for 5 years/60,000 miles
Now ask yourself, “Can Bob Hook Chevrolet or Craig and Landreth say that the same about their standard warranties?”
So, if you are traveling in your Hyundai Accent in Shepherdsville, Kentucky and your door won’t open due to defects in material or possibly factory workmanship – don’t panic! You’re covered. This applies, of course, to normal use and maintenance and excludes surface rust.
Life is unpredictable. Sometimes emergencies happen. Isn’t it nice to know that someone cares?
Picture this: you’re driving your new Hyundai Sonata in Clarksville, Indiana on your way to Huber’s Farm in Starlight when suddenly you break down. What would you do? Start walking to your mechanic in New Albany? Relax, Hyundai of Louisville is here for you. We want our customers to feel safe and secure. For five years, no matter how many miles you drive, Hyundai owners receive roadside assistance. We want you to feel confident that, should you go on a Bourbon Tour in Bardstown, Kentucky, that you will not be stranded if a problem arises. Roadside assistance is effective from the date the vehicle is delivered to you (or the first retail buyer) – essentially, the date that the vehicle was put into service (in-service date), whichever is earlier.
