FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 23, 2006 -- Hyundai Motor America announced today that it will extend its industry-leading warranty program, The Hyundai Advantage: America's Best Warranty(TM), through 2010. Since the 1999 model year, every new Hyundai vehicle sold in the U.S. has been backed by The Hyundai Advantage, covering more than 2.75 million vehicles to date.

"The Hyundai Advantage ensures our owners that we are a partner in their purchase with a vested interest in providing high-quality vehicles," said Steve Wilhite, chief operating office, Hyundai Motor America. "Ten-year warranty coverage is only possible because of the extremely high quality standards Hyundai has achieved, and we're excited to offer new Hyundai owners this benefit for at least the next four years."

The unmatched suite of warranty protection includes 10-year, 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, five-year, 60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper protection, seven-year, unlimited mileage anti-perforation coverage and 24-hour roadside assistance coverage at no extra charge for five years (no mileage limit), which includes emergency towing, lockout service and limited coverage for trip-interruption expenses. There is no deductible on any of these coverages.
