Hyundai’s SUV model, the Santa Fe, has been in production since 2000 and like the Hyundai Tucson, it’s named after a U.S. city. Now in its third generation, the Hyundai Santa Fe has been refreshed for the 2017 model year and comes with Android Auto compatibility, as well as availability of advanced electronic safety and driver assistance aids.
The SUV is particularly attractive to car buyers for its reasonable cost and high safety features, making it ideal for families. But the SUV is also popular among drivers interested in the selection of upgraded options or for those who prefer the Sport version of the model, which provides a more dynamic ride and can gain up to 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
The standard Hyundai warranty that comes with purchasing a Santa Fe offers coverage for 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first, or the 10 year or 100,000-mile powertrain plan. But what about when the warranty expires?
For those who don’t have a vehicle service contract in place ahead of time, they may end up paying out of pocket for repairs, once their original vehicle warranty is no longer valid. Major parts for the Hyundai Santa Fe can total hundreds of dollars and this cost doesn’t include labor or the fees necessary to have the vehicle towed or serviced roadside.
An alternator replacement for a Hyundai Santa Fe, for example, ranges from $400 to $900* and a starter replacement can be as much as $700 to fix or fix. A vehicle service contract could help provide coverage for parts such as this when you need it most.
Eligibility for a vehicle service contract is based on the make, model, year, and mileage of your vehicle. Each plan can be customized to fit specific coverage needs and monthly budgets.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not.
