Yes, that must be it. I remember the clutch went because of rough treatment. I think I will get an auto next time.

If a car is stolen in my state (CT) , the insurance company must pay the fair market value of the car if it is not revocered within 30 days. So, if a car is stolen and recovered after the insurance company has paid for the car, the insurance company can sell the car with a clear title & the warrantly would be intact if the car were not totaled by the thieves.
I think the original poster said the only damage was a broken rear window.
If a car is totaled by the owner or by a thief, the title is stamped salvage. That would void any remaining waranty.

I just bought an '08 Elantra SE and I have a service/warranty question.
The normal service interval is 7,500 miles; the "severe" service interval is 3,750 miles. If I split the difference and get it serviced every 5,000 miles, following the inspection/replacement schedule as closely as possible, will Hyundai honor the warranty down the road? Or if I follow the normal service schedule, will they refuse warranty service later by claiming I should have been following the "severe" schedule?

How will they know whether you should be following the severe schedule or not? Why not just pick the 3750 or 7500 service interval, based on your driving habits and environment? Is 3750 all that much different than 5000?

I asked because while I do mostly highway driving, I will do some cold weather driving and short distance driving. 3,750 seems way too soon to do oil changes to me - everything I've ever heard says 3,000 was invented by the quick lube folks to double their sales. I'd just as soon change every 7500, but I want to make sure Hyundai won't come back at me and say, "Hey, it's been below freezing for most of the last two months - we won't cover this because you should have come in sooner!"

As I said... how will they know you drove the car on some short trips, or in cold weather? For all they know you go down to your condo in Fort Lauderdale in the winter.
Anyway, you seem to be really worrying about this, so maybe the extra oil changes are worth the peace of mind they will give you. What are they, about $25 a pop? I have the oil changed on my Elantra every 3750 miles or thereabouts because: 1) I only drive 7500 miles a year or so, and 2) the oil changes are free. Plus I do drive some short distances and in some really cold weather (like below zero F).
#44 of 80 Elantra extended warranty
Sep 19, 2008 (4:33 pm)
Received a call that the bumper to bumper warrant is about to expire on my 2005 elantra.
Does anyone know the cost from Hyndai? I know that some toyota dealers in the midwest are less expensive for extended toyota factory warranties than those in the northeast.

I am not sure that you can get a Hyundai extended warranty now, near 60k miles. I thought it had to be extended before one year or 12k miles. But maybe they have loosened that requirement since the last time I checked on it on my Elantra, a few years ago.
#46 of 80 Transferrable warranty - when ex rental
Sep 21, 2008 (8:32 pm)
Looking to purchase a used 2007 Elantra -previous rental car. I see that the 10 yr powertrain is non-transferrable. Instead, those parts will be covered under the 5 yr bumper to bumper.
BUT..will I find that those part are excluded due to being a prior rental? See the wording from the Hyundai official site:
econd and/or subsequent owners have powertrain components coverage under the 5 year / 60,000 mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Excludes coverage for vehicles in commercial use (i.e. taxi, route delivery, delivery service, rental, etc.).

The 10/100k powertrain warranty does not pertain to commercial vehicles. However, if you look under the 5/60k bumper-to-bumper warranty provisions on the same web page, you'll see there is no limitation for commercial use.
Edit: I have confirmed through Hyundai Customer Service that as long as the car's title was not already "branded" a 2nd time (e.g. the rental company PLUS someone else), meaning there has been only one owner, then the remainder of the 5/60k warranty transfers. I talked with a dealer the other day and they told me that when the rental company sells the car to an auctioneer and then they sell it to a dealer, these are not considered "ownership" for warranty purposes.
