What Is Hyundai Assurance?

If you’re in the market for a new car, it might be important to note that Hyundai offers America’s very best warranty. It’s all a part of Hyundai Assurance—and it’s the best deal you can get on a new car.

So what does Hyundai Assurance entail? A little bit of everything:

  • A 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty
  • A 7-year anti-perforation warranty, mileage unlimited
  • A 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty
  • A lifetime hybrid battery warranty

But that’s only the beginning. All drivers will also get the following:

  • 5-year 24-hour roadside assistance, unlimited miles
  • 12-month/12,000-mile replacement parts and accessories limited warranty
  • 7-year/70,000-mile California emission controls systems warranty
  • 8-year/80,000-mile federal emission defect & performance warranty

How does this stack up against the competitors? Hyundai’s powertrain warranty duration is double the years of Toyota’s, Honda’s, Nissan’s, and Chevrolet’s. Only Chevrolet offers up to 100,000 miles—the other three only offer up to 60,000. The new vehicle limited warranty is also longer in duration and better in mile limits than the same competitors, and even luxury brand Lexus.

Why Should You Get Your Tires Rotated?

tires rotated

Getting your tires rotated may sound silly if you’re not too technical when it comes to cars. But the phrase “rotating your tires” isn’t the same as what your tires do on the road when you drive. Rotating your tires actually means moving the positions of your tires on your car.

So why should you get your tires rotated, and how often? To answer the first, it allows your tires to wear evenly. When you drive, it is your front tires that wear down more quickly, as they undergo the forces of steering. That means, given a couple years, your front tires would have much less tread than your back tires. So what do you do? You rotate them, bringing front to back and back to front. This allows them to wear evenly.

We recommend rotating your tires every six months, that way you can just pack the chore into your oil change here with us at SouthTowne Hyundai. Have more maintenance questions? Our expert staff will be happy to assist you—just give us a call or bring your questions to your next service visit.
