    Anyone know what the warranty is on the Sonata Hybrid's hybrid components is in Canada? I can't find it on the website and have an inherent distrust for salesmen. I'm mostly curious if we get the lifetime battery warranty, I'm pretty sure we'll get the same 8 yr / 100k mile warranty on the rest of the components. That would be good to know too though.

    Spotted on a Hyundai forum, posted by a Canadian Hyundai owner (located in Ontario), who wrote to Hyundai Canada and received this response:
    Other Canadians responded before that note stating the battery was covered under "the 8 year warranty", assumed to be the powertrain warranty.

    If it's any consolation, Hyundai is not covering the 2011 HSH owners with the lifetime guarantee, even though they're the same batteries. It's apparently only in place for new car sales, and they know the majority of people trade every five or six years anyway, and so there will never be a warranty claim on a very old battery.
