Your Hyundai questions answered - The Globe and Mail
Canadians buy Hyundais at twice the per capita rate as Americans, but get a five-year warranty instead of a 10-year warranty.
Let’s be clear on what’s going on here. Hyundai does offer a 10-year power train warranty in the United States – but it applies only to the original owner. Hyundai officials tell me that if that vehicle is sold, the second and subsequent U.S. owners have power train coverage under the 5-year/ 60,000-mile limited warranty.
Hyundai Canada spokesman Chad Heard also notes, “Laws in Canada don’t allow for this kind of warranty program, so Hyundai vehicles in Canada have a five-year/100,000-km warranty that is fully transferable.”
