Hi,

After seeing some comments and minor issues with the Tucson 2022, I wonder if it is worth buying the extended warranty. With so many electronic components, sensors, and other elements, don't you think these would not give us some headaches in the long term? What do you think about this, I would like to know your opinion on whether or not to take the extended warranty?

Thanks,

I normally do not buy extended warranties but since this car is new, has lots of bells and whistles, I purchased the 8 year 160k Hyundai warranty. If I don’t use the warranty, I get $2000 back after the eight years.

I have been looking at that just this morning as my delivery is expected in the first week of February. The standard warranty is pretty good, and I hear that if you can afford any repair then it is better not to buy the extended warranty.

The catch with the warranty is that if you use it past 100k for anything, you won’t get the $2000 back at the end of the warranty.
So for me, it was a $550 peace of mind if nothing goes wrong. I didn’t have any issues with my 2013 Santa Fe after the 100k expired and I traded it in at 160k so crossing my fingers.

Why $550?

I paid $2550 for the Hyundai extended plus warranty so if I don’t use the warranty, I will only be out $550.
Have you negotiated the price with your dealer? Because on the Hyundai Canada website the extended warranty for 8 / 160k is closer to $3800

I normally don't get them, and despite the advice of my colleague, I ended up getting it anyways due to all the electronics in such a car.

Yes, the lowest the finance guy would go was $2550. At first he tried to sell me a 3rd party warranty for $3800 with all kinds of crap that I did not want but decided on the Hyundai extended. I hate finance guys. I also paid $480 below msrp and it was a take it or leave attitude after speaking to the GM but since I waited 3.5 months for the car, I didn’t have much choice. Not happy with the entire purchase process and I will never use Car Cost Canada again.

Exactly, the “what if” thoughts in my head but the devil on my right shoulder pushed me into it. I wouldn’t pay full price for the warranty though.

Do you mind if you can provide your seller's contact name and location? Just in case, when it's time to meet the financial dealer to have something valid to discuss the price. Thanks a lot.

I got offered the 8 year extended warranty for 3,300 in Canada. I tried to negotiate but the finance manager said there is no negotiating at all, they can only sell at a fixed price!

Not sure if they were bluffing or not, but I wasn't interested in the extended warranty very much anyways so I didn't push any further.

They lied to you unfortunately. You can do much better than $3,300. If your dealership won't work with you, you can always go to someone else. I'm not sure if a dealership in the USA would be able to warranty a Canadian Hyundai, but this thread might be helpful for you:

I'm not surprised, the finance manager we were working with was very curt and did not really seem to care about the sale. I guess they know the market is so insane for cars that they think they can do the absolute bare minimum and will still be making sales....

In any case, I'm not too worried about the extended warranty anyways, so it was not that much of a letdown.

Where ? USA & Canada warranty are different. USA new car price are slightly higher than canadian because you get better warranty than we get here in Canada. That also mean when you buy extended warranty you are buying for less additional mileage and less additional years and that is why USA extended warranty is cheaper than Canadian.
