2012 Hyundai Equus Warranty

The 2012 Hyundai Equus comes with a five-year/60,000-mile warranty, five years of roadside assistance and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty – coverage you’d be hard pressed to find on other super luxury cars. The Equus also includes several unique maintenance features, including free maintenance for the first five years or 60,000 miles and a valet service for all scheduled maintenance.

The valet service allows you to schedule maintenance on your Equus. Then, a Hyundai technician will come to your home or office to pick up your vehicle for service, leaving either an Equus or Genesis sedan for you to use as a loaner. When routine maintenance is completed, they’ll bring your car back, so you never have to set foot in the service department.

  • "Hyundai techs whisk your Equus away to the dealership and leave in its place either a similarly spec'd sedan or a Genesis loaner. No need to rub elbows with the proletariat or drink the caffeinated swill at one of the 250 Equus-approved dealerships. Hyundai knows you're special. And you only drink Starbucks anyway." -- Autoblog
