Orange County-based Hyundai Motor Co. Friday announced a warranty extension policy in the United States and worldwide to support customers who may face difficulties in getting vehicles serviced and repaired during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hyundai owners in the U.S. with a five-year/60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty or a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty that is expiring between March and June will have warranty coverage extended to June 30. All eligible customers will be contacted in the coming days, with more details about the warranty extension program.

Vehicle maintenance has been deemed an essential business in most places across the country. So while many Hyundai dealership showrooms are closed due to the coronavirus, most service departments remain open and are taking protective measures, including practicing social distancing, picking up and dropping off vehicles for service and cleaning vehicles before they are returned, said Barry Ratzlaff, chief customer officer at Hyundai Motor America.

More than 1.2 million Hyundai vehicles in 175 countries will be eligible for the warranty extension.
