Is the Hyundai extended warranty worth it?
I’m at the Hyundai dealership signing papers to purchase a new Hyundai, and the salesperson keeps talking up their extended warranty. Is it worth it?
Answer provided by
Congratulations on your new car! If we’re being honest—and we always are—the Hyundai Protection Plan Vehicle Service Contract may not be worth the added expense right now. This is because Hyundais already feature some of the most comprehensive warranties on the market, plus, they’re really reliable cars!
That said, turning down Hyundai’s extended warranty now doesn’t mean you can’t add it later. As long as you still have at least 30 days and 1,000 miles left on your bumper-to-bumper factory warranty, you can add this extended protection. That means you’ve got 59 months and 59,000 miles to think about adding an extended warranty.
While you may not need an extended warranty to protect your new Hyundai, you should take this opportunity to make sure you’ve got solid car insurance.
