I think you should think again. I purchased 2005 Elantra and at 20,000 the trans had to be re-programed. I also though the Hyundai was a great vehicle. So I bought a used 2000 Elantra with 71,000 miles this July. I find out that powertran warrenty is not transferable... and neither is it on even new car after 60,000. ONly if you buy extended warrenty ($1400) is warrenty transable to second owner.. I would not recommend any one to buy A Hyundai or buy another one if they gave it away. Transmission on 2000 is shot and they want $2100) for new one. I have had Dodge and Chev vehicles that I traded in with 130,000 miles and never had a prolem with transmission... Send the Hyundai back to Korea
and keep the money in US... you'll be sorry you bought the Hyundai sooner than you think.... good luck you will need it

Well, I don't feel sorry about your bad experience with the 2000 Elantra. Didn't you check the car out BEFORE you got it ? I known people who had trans problems with Toyotas, Chevys, etc way before 71k so don't just pin down Hyundai. It happens to all cars not just Hyundais. I hit the 5 yr/100,000 mile mark last month with no major problems so Hyundai is tops on my list when I need another car which doesn't look like any time soon. Just because you had 1 bad experience with a car (to me re programing the trans doesn't count as a major repair) doesn't mean every car that company makes is bad. Only short sighted people think that way.

I am on the verge of 140K on my 2000 Elantra wagon with no transmission issues at all. FWIW I only had two real issues with the car both way over the 100K mark and one that they covered under warranty.
Hyundai has proven themselves to me.

Is that why the car was being sold in the first place. We have had no problems with the hyundais we have owned and plan to continue to buy them. Problems with the transmission can happen with any car. We had alot of problems with the chevy truck we had but I would not tell you not to buy one.

Hi all I did is call it like I see it. And believe that Hyundai is a little underhanded about there warrenty. Other owners I know believe warrenty will be passed on to second owner, not the 60M but the 10M - 100,000 and it is just not true. Sales gave it a buying factor for when selling it. Try to be a little more understanding of other peoples views you gave me yours and I stated mine, havae a great day

If a Hyundai salesperson misrepresented Hyundai's warranty, and if it can be proven (e.g. you have a witness or something in writing), that is grounds for a lawsuit.
The fact that the powertrain warranty is not transferrable (in the past, it was transferrable within the immediate family, e.g. parents to kids) has always been very clear to me by reading the information in the warranty book and on Hyundai's web site. In general it is not a good idea to go only on what a salesperson claims for something as important as warranty coverage. They can be mistaken, or even intentionally misleading the buyer.

In fact, the modern warranty is transferrable outside family, but the length and milage reduces by half.
Unless, of course, you get the extended warranty.

Yes, to be clear, it's the five-year, 60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty that transfers to the second buyer. The powertrain warranty (five more years, 40k more miles) that goes beyond that is not transferrable unless extended at extra cost, and then it becomes a 10-year, 100k bumper-to-bumper warranty (assuming it's the Hyundai extended warranty).

Thanks, I know all this now. I believe you have bought new vehicle. Who is present to prove what sales person claimed, the wife or friend that was with you. Not good enough. As I stated most people I speak with, BELIVE, that warrenty is transferable. Which does not alter true fact. As I said before dealer told me needed new trans. but it was not on Invoice, just said refused repair. When I question Service writer they than wrote on invoice, 4th gear not working... a lot different from new trans. Good rapping with you

I did not realize you bought the car from a dealer. I thought you got it in a private sale. Sorry about my original reply. I would call Hyundai customer service and complain to them about the wrong information you received. The hyundais we bought were always new.
