Hyundai cars have some of the lowest repair bills in the industry, according to a survey by Warranty Direct.
In a survey of repair costs in 2003, the Korean company was ranked 6th in the table, ahead of Japanese giants such as Toyota and Honda, as well as SEAT, VW, Mitsubishi and Renault. The average repair bill last year for Hyundai was £246.38, way below the all-round average of £379.31.
Since the launch of Hyundai’s pioneering five-year, unlimited mileage warranty in September 2002, the company has also been commended by the Consumer’s Association for its initiative in reducing costs to the consumer with its peace of mind package.
Low cost, high reliability motoring
"The figures offer an indication of the cost of repair if something did go wrong for the owner," explained Duncan McClure Fisher of Warranty Direct. "It is also a valuable guide for people looking at a new car so that they can make a more educated judgement on future running costs."
Warranty Direct also recently rated Hyundai as one of the seven best manufacturers in the reliability stakes and these results further reflect the company’s commitment to providing vehicles of a very high standard and specification at an affordable price.
Graham Lightfoot, Aftersales Director said, "We are delighted to see these results. Our focus is on delivering customer satisfaction. As repair prices clearly have a major impact on the customer, we work hard to set parts prices and service costs which are fair and good value and attractive to our customers."Published 19 February 2004
