I was curious if the Input Speed Sensor is covered under the powertrain warranty. I have a little under 80,000 miles. If not what is the cost for replacing (part + labor)?

Dear shawn,

Are you the original owner of this Elantra? Do you have the original owners manual and warranty booklet? I would love to give you an answer, but unfortunately it is very situation specific. Read the owners manual and warranty booklet for you exact coverage.

If you are not the first owner, the answer is no.

If you are the first owner, the answer is probably still no. See:

Covers repair or replacement of powertrain components (i.e. selected Engine and Transmission/Transaxle components), originally manufactured or installed by Hyundai that are defective in material or factory workmanship, under normal use and maintenance. Coverage applies to Original Owner only effective with 2004 Model Year and newer model year vehicles. On 1999-2003 Model Years, coverage applies to Original Owner and immediate family members (i.e. wife, husband, daughter, son, stepdaughter, stepson).

Second and/or subsequent owners have powertrain components coverage under the 5 year / 60,000 mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Excludes coverage for vehicles in commercial use (i.e. taxi, route delivery, delivery service, rental, etc.).

Shawn,

Autozone looks like the best price. A Wells model SU6223 Vehicle Speed Sensor for the 2001 Elantra is $59.99.

Byron,
I am the original owner. I have looked through my manual and nowhere does it say that sensors are not covered with the warranty. Is this sensor internal or external? In either instance what would the labor costs be?

Thanks in advance.

P.S. In looking at the warranty info, it states that all internal parts are covered. That's the reason for the question.

Basically the 100,000 mile portion of the warranty only applies to the items directly in the driveline and does not include sensors.

If that is true, what is the labor costs for this, dealer vs. nondealer?

Shawn,

The Hyundai dealer here guards their actual hourly rate by only quoting for complete jobs, but it must be $85 per hour. They also try to confuse customers about the actual costs for parts, by NOT providing a break out detail for each part. You have to ask and they rely on ignorant customers. Except for oil filters, always get your part back (a Ford dealer and a Buick dealer each snookered me years ago)

A non-Hyundai repair shop may cost $65-$75 per hour, but this is very specific for your part of the country. Shop around. Sometines your might be surprised with a reasonable quote from a Sears auto shop, Goodyear, or Firestone mechanic shop.

As far as internal parts coverage, the 100,000 mile coverage is quite specific. Wear out components like clutches are not covered, and this has been tried many times by Tiburon customers (the Gen II original design Tiburon had a problem with the clutch)

Read the warranty word-for-word. If in doubt, go see the Hyundai dealer for a decision on if your speed input sensor is covered. If they say yes, great. If they say no, you need to show them in their own warranty paragraph where it is covered. For an item to be covered within the legal limits of a warranty, it must be stated specifically or in an inclusive category (i.e. powertrain). Don't assume. There are no nice guys in the Hyundai legal department (or any auto manufacturer legal department) . If the part is not stated, it is not covered. There is a whole body of law on warranties. Unlike contract law, if coverage is not stated it cannot be implied.

How long then would it take to replace? 1 Hour, 2 Hours, or more?

Shawn,

The vehicle speed sensor is installed on the right wheel attached to the spindle.

For a competent mechanic to remove the old unit and install a new one with a hydraulic vehicle lift- 20 minutes tops! Expect a Hyundai dealer to round up to 30 minutes for "shop cleanup".

Isn't there more than one sensor? Is the input Speed Sensor on the Tranny or on the spindle?
