For the second time since the COVID-19 lockdown began, Hyundai Australia has increased its warranty extension period to compensate for decreased car use.
Hyundai cars that had warranties due to expire between 1 March 2020 and 31 May 2020, had their warranty extended to 30 June 2020. That is up to three months’ extension for some vehicles.
Hyundai initially offered the extension for warranties expiring between 1 March 2020 and 30 March 2020, extending the coverage to 31 May.
The original extension covered about 27,000 Australian cars, which increased to around 30,000 vehicles.
The extension covers all Hyundai models except the commercial iLoad van.
Hyundai has done the same worldwide, and estimates it has affected more than 1.21 million cars globally.
