Hyundai introduces seven-year warranty as a limited offer

Hyundai has introduced a seven-year warranty across most of its model range – up from the industry-first five-year coverage it introduced 20 years ago. However, according to a confidential dealer bulletin obtained by CarAdvice, the factory-backed extended warranty only applies to certain Hyundai vehicles ordered and delivered from the beginning of October through to the end of December 2019 – with “no exceptions”.

Subaru adds five-year warranty

And then there were two. Market leader Toyota and fellow Japanese brand Nissan are now the only two in the Top 10 with a below average three-year warranty after Subaru boosted its coverage to five years from January 1, 2019. Subaru introduced its five-year warranty on certain models in December – and had increased its standard three-year coverage during monthly sales promotions in recent years – but the new deal is permanent.
