Bumper to bumper 8 years extended warranty is offered for 3.5k in Canada.

Ordered the PHEV Ultimate trim and plan to keep it long time 8 years at least.

That's nearly $1000 more than I paid here (after converting) and mine is a better plan.
I got the Hyundai extended warranty for 100,000 miles and 10 years virtually bumper to bumper, especially covering all electronics/chips etc. It covers a few things that are considered wear that the first 3YR does not and of course after that covers all the things most likely to go wrong and more.
Negotiated cost $1999. That was for the Platinum Plus.

Only you can decide how much gives you peace of mind, and how much is just too much. Mine is transferable to another owner if a private sale, if yours is that is a consideration it adds to the value of the car.

Unfortunately, in Canada, the warranty is not as good, however, the trade off is our purchase price is cheaper than the States. I paid $2550 for the 8 year extended plus warranty and I get $2000 back if I don’t use the extended warranty. Good piece of mind considering the complexity of the hybrid.

I got the 10 year, 100000 mi., $0 deductible Hyundai plan for $1350, which is $350 over dealer’s cost. Doesn’t do much extra for engine and drivetrain but with all the digital screens and techfeatures, it extends everything for 5 more years. I’m sure the “infotainment” system or the digital dash screen would easily cost more than that, so if you keep a car for a long time, Ifelt the peace of mind was worth it to me.

I haven't had a car for more than 2.5 years in 15 years I am opting for the factory waranty

I’m on the fence. I plan on keeping it a long time however we won’t be putting crazy mileage on it. Normally I wouldn’t take one but the shear amount of technology in this car makes me nervous. And how do we know that a part is truly defective instead of just worn down and needs to be replaced. Are dealers honest about replacing parts on the warranty when the defects are hard to prove?

Yup, it really is an individual decision. Be sure to try negotiating a better deal. Try looking into other warranty extension plans and us it as leverage with your dealer to get a better price.

I turned it down. I’m pretty sure that Hyundai will be contacting me right before the initial 5 year warranty expires in order to try and sell me an extended warranty. If the car’s a lemon, then I’ll trade it. Otherwise, I’ll make the decision then.

Not an easy decision like it was in past years for me when it was a hard no. I didn't get the warranty on my last car (Kia) or any car. When Kia contacted me years later it was much higher cost than had I taken it at the time. But I never regretted not getting it.

That has changed with the advent of so much electronics, the whole infotainment system with a limited warranty etc etc. So I got the heavily discounted negotiated one from Hyundai now and I still feel good about it.

I was wondering, when you ( and others) said "...I got...one from Hyundai" - was it really directly from Hyundai (let's call it "headquarters" ) or it was from a Hyundai dealership?
At first, I contacted Hyundai directly but after exchanging emails, providing required information, it ended up with them stating "if you are seeking to purchase an extended Hyundai warranty, we would recommend that you follow back up with your selling dealership, as we do not sell any coverages and only administer current coverages".
So, I shopped around and purchased extended warranty from a Hyundai dealership ( not the one where I bought car from - they really asked "too much money for less options" - but from the one I used all years while I had Genesis). In any case, while I was shopping, I could see that dealerships sell a number of different extended warranties and some are quite good and well known names ( Zurich, JM&A, etc.) and pay very good reimbursement ( towing, car rental, hotel stay, restaurant/food, etc. - everything you may spend a lot of money while your car is in repair shop ) and some are not.
Thus, for those who may decide on getting extended warranty - I would strongly recommend, in addition to know details of what their coverage would repair, to request what kind of reimbursement they will get, if car is towed away for repair.

Hyundai 100% has their own extended warranty administered by them. The fact you have to buy through a dealer is consistent with you have to buy the car through a dealer also.

It's called HPP and I got the Hyundai Platinum Plus plan not listed in this link. Possibly because it may not be available at all dealers or every State. Keep on mind States can have some different laws as to coverages if offered so the cost could be higher or lower depending on the State also and what is offered.
I would probably not have bought a third party one.
Yes dealers certainly do sell after market ones.

Further you can get deep discounts off the price of the Hyundai coverage cost they ask depending on the dealer's willingness. I would be hard pressed to find a coverage better and at the cost I paid for the Plus in Florida.

Appreciated your reply.
Yes, at a time I shopped for extended warranty, I did contact them (HMF) directly and exchanged emails with Hyundai Protection Plan Administrator.
I think you are correct and each state has its own regulations and corresponding warranty coverage.
In any case, I had a number of options to choose from and all worked well for me/my needs.
