Hyundai Factory Warranty includes 5 years or 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper protection plus 10 years or 100,000 miles of engine repair coverage.
It is the longest factory warranty in the United States.
The Hyundai bumper-to-bumper warranty transfers to the second owner without cost, but the engine warranty does not.
Buyers may enhance the factory warranty with transferable plans.

Hyundai offers two extended warranty options for owners who want to cover more than the engine beyond 5 years: Platinum and Gold.
What do the Hyundai Extended Warranty Options cover?
Option 1: Platinum
The Hyundai Platinum Extended Warranty covers the cost of repairs for the engine, drive axle, transmission, climate controls, shocks, fuel injectors, electronics, sensors, power seats, navigation, and audio.
Everything on the vehicle is covered except a few excluded wear items like body trim, windshield cracks, brake pads, manual clutches, and weather stripping.
Option 2: Gold
The Hyundai Gold Plan looks okay at first glance, but the fine print discloses that many claims will not be covered.
The Platinum Plan is a better investment, and worth the higher cost, considering the majority of claims will be covered without dispute.
The Gold Plan may be suitable for a base model Accent, but definitely not for a fully equipped Sonata.
Does the Hyundai Warranty transfer to the second owner?
The 100,000 mile Hyundai Powertrain Warranty that comes free of cost is not transferable to the second owner.
However, the Platinum and Gold Extended Warranties are transferable when the vehicle is sold private party, or may be cancelled for a prorated refund when the car is sold to a dealership.
How much is the repair copay?
Hyundai offers two options of deductible copay: $0 and $100.
The deductible is the portion of future repairs the owner must pay. The $100 copay is offered to owners who want lower upfront cost.
However, the $0 option is a better value considering it costs $250 more to purchase and claims can be made without copayment. Even small items under $100 will be covered.
Therefore, the F&I Tools Review finds the Hyundai Platinum Warranty with $0 copay to be the best bang for the buck!
How much does the Hyundai Platinum Extended Warranty cost?
Retail Market Value 10 Years or 120,000 Miles
$0 deductible: $3875
$100 deductible: $3625
Prices may vary by location, model, features, and date of sale.
