Some 15,060 people are now benefiting from ‘Britain’s best’ car warranty … that’s the number of people who have bought new Hyundai cars in the six months since the launch of its new five year warranty.

Hyundai’s warranty shook up the new car market since it was launched in September 2002. The warranty was unique in that it is a permanent move, not a limited-time offer. It is also a genuine unlimited mileage warranty with no mileage restriction (that includes driving school vehicles).

The warranty is available on the entire range of Hyundai vehicles, and is fully transferable between owners during the five years. It is also a manufacturer backed warranty, not an insurance or dealer scheme.

David Walker, Managing Director of Hyundai Car (UK) Ltd, said: "Our aim is to provide the consumer with a real benefit which is as transparent as possible.

"It is also a statement of confidence in our steadily improving range of products; to say that our cars are as good as any on the roads today.

"We are delighted that 15,060 people are now living with the protection that our five year warranty provides, and we’re sure they will be joined by many more," he added.

Mike Rutherford, writing in the News of the World late last year, voted Hyundai’s five year warranty Britain’s best in his end-of-year awards.

Since last September, monthly sales for Hyundai have been up compared to the corresponding month for the previous year. Sales in January and February 2003 have bucked the negative industry trend, and have also risen.

The Hyundai range has gone from strength to strength since last year; the new Getz supermini won What Car?’s Budget Car of the Year Award, and the Accent received a comprehensive facelift at the start of this year.

Hyundai improved standard equipment on selected Santa Fes, Sonatas and Trajets last month. This includes ‘Smartnav’ satellite navigation as standard on the Sonata V6 which provides live traffic information on demand.
