I went to my dealer KUN Hyundai yesterday. I got i all the necessary details and i had a lengthy discussion with him for about 30 minutes , he was very kind enough to answer all my questions. And a slight correction my car is completing 2 years today( 6 months with me) and the free warranty which we get for a new car for 2 years is expiring today , so i have to go for extended warranty.
This extended warranty is provided by HMIL themselves so i guess i will not be cheated anywhere in the process.
The following things are covered in the warranty:
1.A/C compressor:Rs. 20,000/-
2.Engine Control Module(ECM): RS. 23k
3.Fuel pump: RS.5k
: RS.50k (not applicable to me)
8.Sensors: Rs.8k ( this is also not applicable i guess)
9.Power stg box assy: Rs.20k
10.Evaporator coil assy: Rs.9k
11.Power stg pump:Rs.15k
12.Idle speed actuator:Rs.6.5k (what is this??)
13.Brake master cyl assy: Rs.4k
14.Clutch master cyl assy: Rs.8k
15.Axle wheel bearings: Rs.6k
16.Drive shaft Assy: Rs.22k
17.Blower and fan motor Assy: Rs. 6.5k
And still many more!!
These items are not covered in Basic warranty also:
1. Normal maintenance services
2.Cleaning and polishing
3.Engine oil/Fluid changes
6.Adjustment of doors
7.Brake and clutch
8.Wheel balancing , rotation and alignment
9.Head lamp alignment
10.Replacement of parts as a result of normal wear and tear such as spark plugs , belts , belts , brake pads and shoes , brake discs , clutch disc/pressure plate , filters wiper blades , bulbs , fuses , brushes , hoses , tyre/tube , battery , audio system
I was shown the complete extended warranty list of all the Hyundai cars , Verna Crdi and AT attract the highest prices for warranty. All the other cars like i10 and i20 are very cheap( in the range which RSM said). And as the car gets older the amount for extended warranty increases.
HMIL have given only one scheme for Verna CRDI that is one year period or 80k kms whichever comes earlier. So i am going to choose this scheme today as i have no other choice left. My car will be under warranty for the next year or till 80 k kms.
And i have given my car for service also as it has completed 10 k kms with me. The following things will be changed:
1. Engine oil
The last two have to be changed for every 30 k kms only ( my car has crossed 33k kms). Apart from this i don have any other complaint in my car , a happy 10 k kms running without any repair!!
So totally the estimated bill is Rs. 8k plus tax and in addition i have to pay Rs.11k approx for extended warranty!
And i have decided to go for extended warranty because this is just similar to our life insurance or car insurance , it may get used or may not be useful also but its always better to be on the safer side!!
