Genesis is the parent company Hyundai’s upscale brand, and as with all expensive, luxury cars, the cost of repairs can tend to be on the higher side if your vehicle is not covered by a warranty or a protection plan.
Below, we take a close look at the Genesis warranty and your extended warranty options. See why buying an extended warranty for Genesis from CARCHEX might suit your needs best.
Every new Genesis vehicle comes with the following warranties:
This 5-year, 60,000-mile Genesis basic warranty covers the repair or replacement of any part manufactured or installed by Hyundai Motor Group, Hyundai Motor Company, or Genesis Motor America, including parts and labor, to fix defects in material or workmanship, excluding certain listed components.
If you have a new Genesis vehicle, here are a few things you need to know about the Genesis warranty.
The Genesis powertrain warranty covers the repair and/or replacement of powertrain components to fix manufacturing defects, excluding certain listed components and vehicles used for commercial purposes.
If you are the original owner of the Genesis vehicle, this warranty lasts 10 years/100,000 miles from purchase. Second owners will have coverage for the powertrain components for up to 5 years/60,000 miles under the Genesis New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
This warranty covers any vehicle body sheet metal perforation due to corrosion caused by factory defects and under normal use for 7 years/unlimited miles.
Remember to keep all of the body repair records, as it may be necessary to prove that the required anti-corrosion materials have been applied to any previously repaired/replaced parts.
This warranty doesn’t cover:
The Genesis Federal Emission Control Warranty protects against any defective factory emission-related components that would cause the vehicle to fail to meet federal regulations for 5 years/60,000 miles or first scheduled maintenance, whichever comes first.
Certain listed emission control parts are covered for 8 years/80,000 miles.
This Genesis warranty is applicable to models certified for sale in California and will ensure your Genesis vehicle meets the state’s strict anti-smog standards.
While the Emission Control Performance Warranty will take care of any necessary vehicle repairs or adjustments to pass the smog check inspection for the first 5 years/60,000 miles, the Emission Control System Defect Warranty provides coverage for factory defects to specific components for up to 7 years/70,000 miles or 8 years/80,000 miles.
The Genesis Replacement Parts and Accessories Limited Warranty provides coverage for any genuine Genesis replacement part or accessory that was found to be defective in material or workmanship under normal use, excluding certain listed parts.
The warranty for replacement parts is valid for 1 year/12,000 miles from the date of installation and covers labor/parts charges for items sold and installed by an authorized Genesis retailer. If the part was not originally installed by a Genesis retailer, only the charge for parts will be covered.
A Genesis/Hyundai Genuine accessory installed by an authorized Genesis retailer in a new vehicle is covered by the accessory warranty for up to 1 year/unlimited miles from the date of purchase of a new Genesis vehicle.
If you decide to sell your Genesis during the warranty period, these warranties can be transferred to the new owner for the remainder of the warranty period.
The powertrain warranty applies only to the original owner and is only partially transferred to subsequent owners.
While not strictly a warranty, all new Genesis vehicles come with the following benefits on purchase.
The 5-year/unlimited-mile Genesis Roadside Assistance Program is available to the first owner of new Genesis vehicles in the U.S. and Canada. This benefit includes:
If the reason for the breakdown isn’t covered through the Genesis warranty, you will not be eligible for reimbursement. Also, the roadside assistance service has some notable exclusions. For example, it is not available for off-road conditions or conditions manifested as off-road, services for snow tires, or mounting and demounting of snow chains.
All new 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 Genesis vehicles come with complimentary scheduled maintenance for 3 years/36,000 miles.
For the first 3 years/36,000 miles from your date of purchase, the original owner of the Genesis vehicle has access to the complimentary Genesis Service valet program, which includes a remote diagnostic check, free vehicle pick and return, and courtesy replacement vehicle during the repair.
Did you buy a certified pre-owned (CPO) car from Genesis? In this case, you will get the following benefits, but note that the exact duration and terms may vary from dealer to dealer.
According to RepairPal, Genesis vehicles score a 3.5 out of 5 in reliability, placing 7 out of 30 vehicles in its category. Also, Genesis vehicle owners spend an average of $565 on repairs and maintenance, taking their car for unscheduled repairs 0.6 times a year with a 14% chance that the repair could be severe.
As you can see from these RepairPal costs, while Genesis vehicles are rated above average, repair bills can still quickly add up if your factory warranty has expired. This is where an extended warranty comes into play.
An extended warranty protects your car and budget from the dangers of unexpected, costly repairs that affect your car as it ages. When your car is protected, you’ll be able to drive it for a longer time without worry. In addition, a transferable extended warranty can increase your car value if you plan on selling it soon.
If you would like to explore your options for Genesis extended warranties from the dealer, they have a vehicle protection plan that can add to the original limited factory warranty.
The Genesis Protection Plan Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) offers enhanced coverage during the New Vehicle Limited Warranty and an extension of the warranty period. That means you’re covered for a total of up to 10 years (not an additional 10 years).
Under the Genesis extended warranty, you will have to pay a deductible for covered repairs, depending on what you selected at the time of purchase.
If you decide to buy this vehicle service contract, here are a few things you can expect:
As with the original warranty, all repairs under the Genesis extended warranty can be performed at participating dealers in the country. However, this can restrict your choices if you have to drive a couple of hours to reach the nearest repair center.
Also, the service contract does not cover mechanical breakdowns caused by accidental damage, collision, weather, improper maintenance, or even pre-existing conditions, which means that you will have to pay out of your pocket for these repairs.
Your dealer may encourage you to buy a Genesis extended warranty plan from them at the time of purchase of your new car, but don’t forget that it’s not your only option. An extended car warranty from a leading third-party provider like CARCHEX is often more affordable and provides a great way to make sure that your luxury car gets the protection it deserves.
One of the biggest advantages of buying your extended warranty from CARCHEX is that you get the added flexibility of choosing the protection you want. Instead of buying the manufacturer’s preset warranty at a fixed price, you can customize your extended warranty plan to fit your needs and your budget.
CARCHEX provides five coverage options—Titanium, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze—with different terms and flexible payment options to ensure that every vehicle owner gets to drive their car for longer and with peace of mind. Check out the below infographic for more information on our plans.
Here are a few other benefits you can expect if you protect your Genesis with a CARCHEX plan.
