  • Defects judged by Hyundai Motor UK Ltd as being caused by the failure to follow the recommendations regarding the frequency of routine maintenance services or the failure to have such routine maintenance services performed.

Examples of these include, but are not limited to:

  • External appearance defects, which are not apparent unless magnified by special means or which are considered to be of a minor cosmetic nature and having no effect upon the general appearance or quality of the vehicle, or which are representative of the standards of finish expected by the manufacturer.
    Corrosion or other external damage resulting from stone chipping, gravel or any other form of impact.
  • Discoloration, fading or deterioration resulting from exposure to or contact with tree sap, bird droppings, insects, tar, industrial pollution/fallout, contamination by lubricants or other fluids.
  • Defects resulting from poor repair to, or failure to have repaired, body damage caused by the above.
  • Damage, which is "secondary", and is as a direct result of any primary damage or defect upon which no action or rectification has taken place.
  • Failure or damage occurring during the period of the Manufacturer Warranty or faults developing during that period unless rectified immediately.
  • The replacement of lubricants, fluids or refrigerant other than as a direct consequence of a warrantable repair.
  • The replacement of consumable/service or wear and tear items normally replaced or repaired in the process of routine maintenance servicing.
