I bought the car in Dec of 2017 used with 2,700 miles on it.
Because it is used do I have just the basic 5 yr/60k warranty?

I recall a post saying the rod/bearing warranty on the engine is extended to 13 yes, unlimited miles. Is that just for the original owner or does mine qualify?
Thanks

What happens if I sell my vehicle before its warranty expires?

If you sell your vehicle while still under the 10-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty,
the warranty will be reduced to 5-year/60,000-mile coverage.

Other Hyundai warranty terms and coverage periods, including Roadside Assistance,
remain unchanged for subsequent owner(s).

They are working out the terms for KIA and Hyundai unlimited warranty for engine bearing failure. Officially the 10/100,000 is for original owner or if car was resold as a CPO but many people have already had engines replaced at all different miles regardless of original owner or not. There are posts for engine replacements under warranty at over 150,000 miles.

This is the settlement

Does this apply in Canada as well?

So there is still no definitive answer for my 2017 that I bought used with 2,700 miles on it?

At this time the settlement action that I posted in reply #3 is available off the USA Hyundai website. So IMO it should cover the bearing failure (long block) or damage due to fire as stated for life and doesnt designate original owner.

There are posts on this forums of replacement engines being covered at over 150,000 miles and not original owner.

After the original post about this "pending" lifetime warranty was posted with a copy of the "settlement" I emailed Hyundai and asked what warranty I actually have - the answer, 100K and 10 years. There is no settlement yet as I can see.

"The Court is expected to review the proposed settlement for preliminary approval in October 2019. Assuming preliminary approval is granted, notices will be sent to individual class members pursuant to the terms of the settlement. "

So when will I get my "notice"? And who is a "class member"?
