Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) has launched an Extended Warranty Programme for selected models under the brand.
The models eligible for extended warranty are the AD/MD Elantra, LF Sonata, TL/LM Tucson, DM Santa Fe and TQ Starex with expired manufacturer’s warranty that are no longer than 8 years from the manufacturing date, and with a travelled mileage of under 300,000km on the fifth year from the car’s purchased date.
Beyond 5 years
This newly launched Extended Warranty Programme aims to offer Hyundai customers peace of mind while they keep their vehicles beyond 5 years, after the expiry of the manufacturer’s warranty.
The extended warranty will function just like a new car’s warranty but subject to yearly renewal and only covers mileage of not more than 30,000km a year.
“Most extended warranty programmes by a car brand are offered by premium and luxury car brands but we are offering this programme for Hyundai cars as we are confident of the quality of our vehicles and we want to help our customers maintain their cars longer with peace of mind,” said Mr Low Yuan Lung, Managing Director of HSDM.
RM1,280 per year
With a yearly renewal of RM1,280, the programme offers extended warranty on internal and primary components of the transmission system as well as other electrical components of the engine, transmission, motoring, and modular parts of the vehicles.
It also covers complimentary repairs and part replacement while under warranty. The coverage limit per claim is set at RM10,000.
Claiming more than once
However, any item that has been claimed beforehand can be claimed again should it be proven faulty with a claim of up to RM50,000 on the total aggregate, until it is fulfilled.
All vehicles registered under this programme must have a good service record with Hyundai authorised service centres and owners are required to send in their vehicles to an authorised service centre for a routine service according to HSDM’s recommended service interval.
Only available at SDAH branches
This programme is introduced as part of the company’s promise to deliver distinctive products and services to customers under its tagline ‘Geared for Distinction’.
This programme is currently only available at all Sime Darby Auto Hyundai (SDAH) branches but will soon be extended to the other authorised service centres nationwide.
