I'm looking at trading in my Elantra Ltd. with very few miles on it. I asked the non-Hyundai dealership about the transferability of the warranties. I'm not going back to Hyundai. The 100k powertrain warranty isn't transferable. After my owning many cars in my lifetime (if a car can't make it to 100k without something major going wrong (powertrain related such as the transmission), the car has issues and it's a bad sign. While the warranty has been around for years the better option would be to make a car right the first time so the warranty isn't needed. But that takes money.
backy: the water pump and thermostat aren't moving items that make the car go. Breakage may make the engine blow . That should be covered under the bumper-to-bumper shorter warranty. I bought a used car still under basic warranty (1997). We were about 1k miles from home when the alternator stopped working. We rolled into a dealership by luck and it was a covered fix.
Tires are different, too. Issues with them have to handle it with the tire manufacturer. If there's a similar problem with new tires (replacement of the bad tires that come with the car - again with safely rated tires that end up with the same wear pattern becomes an issue) that should be pursued with Hyundai and will likely be ignored by a dealership. Tires blowing aren't covered and is status quo for just about any car. While I don't like Hyundai or trust them (too many bad consumer reviews - those that are repeated throughout forums are an issue if you can figure out they were written by different people) we can't blame everything on them.
I had a 2004 other brand name car with 115k miles on it after ten years. I fixed normal wear and tear items. In that time, I had one $1800 repair. Nothing unusual happened before the gaskets leaked. I don't know if one gasket leaked or two. One mechanic who charged for th diagnostic with good technicians said one. My own mechanic said two.
