    ....are Hyundai's original manufacturer's warranties (specifically on 2005-2006 Elantras and '06 Sonatas) transferable to second owners? I thought I had heard that they weren't, at least at one time, but not sure now.

    only the original owner gets the 10yr 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. the second owner gets the remainder of the 5 yr 60,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty.

    unless it is a 2003 or older model and you are a family member, right?

    let me repeat this for everyone:

    ONLY THE ORIGINAL OWNER GETS THE 10 YR/ 100,000 MILE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY.

    once you transfer the title to a second owner, the only warranty that transfers is the 5 yr/60K.

    this is regarless of whether the second owner is a family member or model year.

    That is not correct:

    10 YEAR / 100,000 MILES
    POWERTRAIN PROTECTION Covers most engine & transaxle components.
    Covers repair or replacement of powertrain components (i.e. selected Engine and Transmission/Transaxle components), originally manufactured or installed by Hyundai that are defective in material or factory workmanship, under normal use and maintenance. Coverage applies to Original Owner only effective with 2004 Model Year and newer model year vehicles. On 1999-2003 Model Years, coverage applies to Original Owner and immediate family members (i.e. wife, husband, daughter, son, stepdaughter, stepson).

    Second and/or subsequent owners have powertrain components coverage under the 5 year / 60,000 mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Excludes coverage for vehicles in commercial use (i.e. taxi, route delivery, delivery service, rental, etc.).

    Excellent post Backy, as usual. But since yours are usually excellent, that makes excellent your average.
    So, thank you for your average response.

    Yep, I can copy-and-paste from web pages with the best of them. ;)

    Hi
    I am a new member. I have to ask a question and I dont know where to start. I just brought a 2005 Elantra. I know I have the rest of the manufactured warranty. Here is the question. I want to buy an extended warranty and gap insurance where do I start and can you by both at the same time? I have been using all my search engines and I am still trying to figure out who is the best.
    Can anyone please tell me what they think about this? It would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Nan

    some insurance companies sell gap, or you could go back to the dealer (if you bought it from a dealer) and buy the gap from them. Extended warranties can be bought online (just google for it) or they can be purchased from a hyundai dealer (even if you did not buy the car from them).
  • nkmonty1nkmonty1 Posts: 33
    The dealer cant offer it to me. Also my insurance company doesnt carry it. Trying to find Gap insurance with extended auto warranties is very hard. I found one but not both together.
    I thank you for your help. Any more ideas I am completely open to ideas.
    Thanks

  • Would getting a aftermarket remote starter installed on my new 2007 elantra void the warranty? :confuse:
  • Hi,

    I really dont know. I think that is something you would really have to ask the dealership. So sorry I cant be of more help.

  • Can anyone let me know when I do my 45,000 check up do I have to bring the car to the dealership or can I bring it to my mechanic? Also how much does this one run about.
    Thanks for your answers.
    Nan :shades:

    You can look up approximate costs here: Maintenance Schedules. I've heard they sometimes run a little low, but that will give you an idea.
  • Dear Pat
    Thank you for you help. I appreciate your time. I hope it is cheaper then what I read. Do you know if I have to take it to the dealership or can I use my own mechanic? I hope I can use my own mechanic because it will probably be cheaper then the dealership.
    Have a nice day

    You can have your car serviced anywhere you choose--you can even do the servicing yourself if you have the skill and the will. But you should keep detailed records of the servicing, including parts (showing that the parts were OEM quality or better).

    The 45k service should be pretty inexpensive--about the same as the 15k service. The most expsnsive service is at 60k intervals, which includes timing belt replacement.
  • Good Morning
    Thank you for that. I know when I asked the dealership how much it will cost they told me around $190.00. I havent asked my mechanic yet because I still have a few thousand miles for the check up. I am hoping that my mechanic is cheaper then the dealership.

    Hello,

    I bought a 2006 Hyundai Elantra with 12K miles through an auto dealer that bought it at auction from and insurance company.
    The car was a theft recovery that had no damage except for the rear window.
    Does any part of the Hyundai warranty transfer to me or is it voided?

    Thanks,
    DonMc7
  • backybacky Twin CitiesPosts: 18,623
    You should check with HMA on that. The 5-year bumper-to-bumper warranty transfers to the 2nd owner. I don't know whether Hyundai will consider the insurance company and the auction company as "owners". Also, do you know how many people owned it before the insurance company did?
  • donmc7donmc7 Posts: 2
    It looks like the car was stolen from the original owner.
    This morning I spoke with a lady that told me she had a 2003 that had 14K miles on it she had purchased through a dealer that bought it from an insurance company and the Hyundai dealer told them they would honor the factory warranty.
