Brilliant move. 2 - 3 times a year for the first three years, they can find all kinds of things the "service" while they are doing the oil changes.

One last big service at 30K miles involving the transmission, brakes, power steering, cooling system, A/C, cabin air filter (not included in "filters"), headlight and blinker fluid. smile

They will certainly not lost money on this deal. ~ $30/car/visit to implement with potential high profit items to add on. Price of the car I'm sure is adjusted to include this maintenance cost. No free lunch.

i bought 2 hyundais last year for my kids. a tucson anfd ioniq. both 2019. got a great discounts on them both. i spoke to my sales guy recently and he said that 2/1 was going to be an interesting day. They will be instituting new dealer compensation packages . told me the management does not like it at all.

So far i have not really seen the discounts of last year this year. they seem to be holding fast on pricing . i got the tucson for $6400 off msrp and the ioniq $5500.

Hyundais been hitting some home runs lately with the Palisades and a couple of others. they seem to be getting more aggressive in chasing after honda and toyota. this maintaninace program will compete with toyota care .

hyundai-america's worst warranty.

what your radio died at 2 years and 1 month.. so sorry not covered

What your transmission isnt shifting right because there is a short in the overdrive button... sorry not covered..

That said did pickup a 2020 elantra "value edition" so named for the large amount of options included at a value price..

Dealerships love finding a way to get foot traffic in their showrooms, this type of thinking is very cost effective.

Actually the dealers probably aren't happy because corporate reimbursement rates probably aren't as good as customers paying directly and if things are included, probably harder to up sell on worthless stuff like engine flushes or special additives.

^ToyotaCare paid $60-something bucks in labor for my free oil change.

OP- I suggest changing the name of your topic to avoid being click bait. They didn't change anything regarding the warranty, just added a maintenance program.

3 years scheduled maintenance is big news for consumers, and hopefully we can expect some well maintained off lease vehicles in a few years!


A couple GM's and a Hyundai.

I never wrote "changed".
I just c/p the article headline and added the mileage/time.

My dealer has been offering free oil changes for a lifetime and free tire rotations also. They also guarantee the engine for as long as you own it.
But no free air filters.

I think this is to get people in the habit of going to the dealership for service as long as they own the vehicle, then sell you a replacement when needed. This would only happen if Hyundai, not the customer comes out on top most of the time.

It's just a couple free oil changes. Not much to do on a car up to 36k.

That is their end game.

That is essentially correct, but still nice.

The warranty booklet shows that the radio, nav, and Bluetooth system is covered for 5 years/60k.

If they are still recommending 3,750 service service oil changes it is is around 9 oil changes to get you to 36K.

In my case dealership overfilled my Elantra when changing FF. Drive time to and back to dealership 45 minutes. To get an oil change with free car wash over one hour. The past 3 years I spent less time with better oil doing all the required oil changes.
