Is The Hyundai Powertrain Warranty Transferable?

The answer to whether the Hyundai powertrain warranty may be transferred is an emphatic YES! The powertrain warranty is attached directly to the vehicle itself, meaning that no matter who buys it, the warranty will follow the automobile.

When the original owner sells a car, the powertrain warranty remains in effect. However, coverage is reduced from the date of original purchase to 5 years/60,000 miles. Hyundai will still cover the car in this time/mileage frame, therefore there is no need to take any extra action to transfer the warranty. It will remain associated with the vehicle identifying number (VIN) regardless of who owns the vehicle.

This is excellent news for people interested in purchasing a pre-owned Hyundai, as they will be covered by the powertrain warranty. All they must do is check the VIN and ensure that the warranty is still valid. With the assurance that comes from the transferability of the powertrain warranty, consumers may confidently shop for their next Hyundai.
