2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Gets Lifetime Battery Warranty

Good news for hybrid car fans - the 2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid now comes with a lifetime warranty covering the lithium-polymer battery pack.

Hyundai has announced they will replace the battery and take care of any recycling costs if it fails at anytime during the life of the vehicle.

Battery failure has been a major concern for hybrid car shoppers, and this will go a long way in calming those fears. Other hybrid manufacturers may have to follow Hyundai's lead in order to stay competitive.

The current Sonata Hybrid already comes with a 10-year/100,000-mile warranty for the hybrid components, which include the battery pack, generator and transmission. It also come with a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper to bumper warranty.

Hyundai claims the hybrid batteries have been tested for more than 300,000 miles and the failure rate is so low that offering a lifetime warranty is a no-brainer.

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network
