As provider of America’s Best Warranty®, Hyundai goes to great lengths to ensure that its drivers are always protected. Hybrid owners are no exception: Original owners enjoy the Hyundai Lifetime Battery Warranty, and the 10-year/100,000-mile Hybrid Components Protection coverage is transferable to subsequent owners.
The Lifetime Battery Warranty includes the Hybrid Battery Replacement Guarantee, which applies to all U.S. 2012 model year Sonata Hybrids. The guarantee ensures that if the 2012 Sonata Hybrid lithium polymer battery fails, Hyundai will replace the battery and cover recycling costs for the old battery pack free of charge to the original owner.
"Even with all the hybrid vehicle options on the market today, there is still limited demand for these vehicles because of barriers to customer adoption such as uncertainty about the technology and performance," said Michael O'Brien, vice president of corporate and product planning. "By offering the Lifetime Battery Replacement Guarantee, Hyundai is addressing customer concerns and demonstrating our confidence in the durability of our product."
Hyundai Blue Drive Hybrid components include:
• Hybrid Battery Pack Assembly
• Hybrid Starter Generator
• Hybrid Power Control Unit
• Automatic Transmission including Traction Motor
Hybrid drivers already know the environmental advantages of owning vehicles like the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, but knowing they’re protected by America’s Best Warranty is peace of mind on a whole new level.
