Is warranty it's the biggest deal for you, buy a BMW with extended warranty and maintenance. That DOES transfer to a new owner.

But as someone has already said, this knowledge was available before your purchase, and you should've cleared it up then.

Proud Hyundai owner here! Just recently sold my Infiniti G35 for a 2011 Genesis Coupe and loving every moment of it. Doing a decent 13.8 in the quarter on the stock turbo and looking forward to my larger turbo build sometime soon. My goal isn't too lofty, around 350-375whp but it should do well for daily driving. Anyway, the pure ignorance of some of the people on these forums is astounding. There is nothing wrong with modern KIA/Hyundai vehicles and they've got quite a few solid products. I'm only interested in the Genesis sedan/coupe myself but I can see why so many people are buying the new Sonata. If you fail to read the fairly clearly outlined warranty details (I knew them before I bought the car) then you have no one to blame but yourself.

Sure it does. The Gen coupe is a knock-off Nissan Skyline/G37 coupe as the SOnata is a knock-off Benz CLS.

Let me guess, you don't like Coke but Circle K soda and tell us its just as good.

BTW, I am a fan of the Gen coupe

Lack of due diligence is not the fault of anyone except you. The dealer is not the one to blame here. If you weren't smart enough to ask the question why do you feel it's acceptable to cry foul?

My sister's first new car was a 1999 Hyundai Elantra. It's nothing fancy for sure. But for $8000, she's gotten $170,000 miles out of it. It works perfectly except the passenger side window doesn't open without manual assistance, lol. I don't know why she holds onto it, she has an Audi Q7 now (she had kids).

Ha, don't buy used if you don't want the benefit of the full warranty.......cheap ass.

FYI, my '11 Kia Optima I bought with 5 miles on it 7/2/11 just went over 5,000 miles last week. Not a single issue.

Averaging 32MPG according to Fuelly.com!

My car had 20,000 miles on it when I bought it for 13,000,not cheap at all to me.
So,if I don't want to pay about $5000 in maintenence a year makes me cheap,so be it.

And we all wonder why the middle class is going broke......
Everything is set up to bleed people for money,whether its cars,healthcare,housing

Nope,only the powertrain.

That's why they call it a 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. The cars are actually pretty nice and I wouldn't hesitate buying one but do so knowing that the entire car is only covered for 5 yrs or 60K miles.

A coworker has a 2001 Hyundai Accent while ours is a 2000. I mentioned replacing a fuel filter and a few other things. She asked me why would I ever do that because the cars have a 100,000 mile warranty. I told her because those are normal wear and tear items that need to be replaced. She then told me that she wasn't replacing anything because 10 years or 100,000 miles means she doesn't have to. I told her that the company requires that you do the maintenance to keep the warranty in place. Another thing that the Hyundai and Kia line offer is a 10 year rust warranty which for those of you in snow country that should be a benefit.
