    Recently I rode in a 2008 Sonata courtesy car, and was mainly
    impressed by its XM-Sirius radio, which I recall discussing/
    requesting here several years ago: Does the now merged XM-Sirius
    subsidize/incentivize the car companies to make the radio available,
    so that the buyer may subsequently decide or not to subscibe at $13 a
    month (I think) or however. Once I listened to those outrageous comedy
    channels and saw some of the many other choices I was hooked--wow.

    Meanwhile, here is something that confuses me currently about the
    Hyundai value packed "sleepers"

    Some (or just me) have been under an tv ad marketing impression that
    the powertrain on Hyundais is covered up to one hundred thousand

    What is the limit?

    Sixty-thousand miles?

    One hundred thousand miles?

    A one hundred thousand miles "bumper to bumper" extended serice
    contract does NOT cover the powertrain up to 100,000 miles. True or

    Hyundai needs to make its power train and bumper to bumper coverage
    limits clear in large letters & numbers and in non-legalistic jargon

  2. IMO it is rather clear here

    Click on the arrows on the right for more details
    10 YEAR / 100,000 MILES
    POWERTRAIN PROTECTION Covers most engine & transaxle components.

    Covers repair or replacement of powertrain components (i.e. selected
    Engine and Transmission/Transaxle components), originally manufactured or
    installed by Hyundai that are defective in material or factory workmanship,
    under normal use and maintenance. Coverage applies to Original Owner only
    effective with 2004 Model Year and newer model year vehicles. On 1999-2003
    Model Years, coverage applies to Original Owner and immediate family members
    (i.e. wife, husband, daughter, son, stepdaughter, stepson).

    Second and/or subsequent owners have powertrain components coverage
    under the 5 year / 60,000 mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Excludes
    coverage for vehicles in commercial use (i.e. taxi, route delivery, delivery
    service, rental, etc.).

    picture on my hard drive

    For 2007 to 2009 model years:

    Adjustments-- 1 year/12k miles
    Bumper-to-bumper-- 5 years/60k miles
    Powertrain-- 10 years/100k miles
    Radio, headlamp bulbs-- 3 years/36k miles.

    Just discovered the headlamp bulb thing the other day. Apparently th
    coverage reduction (was 5/60) started in the 2007 model year.

    Because the powertrain coverage is 10/100, a Hyundai 10/100 extende
    warranty won't cover powertrain items-- they're already covered under th
    factory warranty. Of course, aftermarket extended warranties probabl
    include this coverage, but you'll never be able to use it. The warrant
    company will be smart enough to point out that it's still under factor
