How Long do Hyundai Cars Last?

Hyundai’s quality technology, materials and workmanship are just some of the reasons our guests feel so confident when buying a used or new Hyundai vehicle. Driven by performance and built to go the distance, you can expect to get a generous amount of mileage (and years) from your investment in a Hyundai.


Hyundai’s global status

Hyundai is the third largest vehicle manufacturer in the world. Originating and dominating in Korea, the brand has now expanded to six international plants in the US, China, Russia, India, Turkey and the Czech Republic. Through its dedication to releasing innovative products, it has been able to make its name amongst the domestic car market in Australia and worldwide.

As of June 2019, Hyundai had produced 7, 218, 391 vehicles. The brand continues to cement its status and build its growth in Australia, with the upcoming release of market-relevant models such as a ute and all-new Sonata that’s set to be the perfect medium-sized sedan for families and professionals.

How reliable is a Hyundai?

In short - a Hyundai is very reliable. But don’t take our word for it; let’s take a look at reliability polls over the last few years.

In 2011, consumer magazine Which? carried out a survey in which Hyundai was awarded the title for most reliable car brand. In the same year, automotive diagnostics firm CarMD also named Hyundai as the most reliable manufacturer.

A more recent survey in 2019 carried out by What Car? assessed 18,000 vehicles to give each one a unique reliability rating, measuring cars up to five years old. Overall, Hyundai received a 95.7% score. 

US Car News also carried out reliability tests on Hyundai vehicles, awarding the manufacturer at least a 3.5 out of 5 rating. Its reliability is backed up by its basic five-year unlimited kilometre warranty, and additional support from Hyundai iCare. As a brand, Hyundai’s reliability results are impressive, and this becomes even more so when we look at some individual cars. The Hyundai i10, for example, came in at 6th place on the top 100 most reliable cars list in 2019.

How many years do Hyundai vehicles last?

You can extend the life and performance of your car, and optimise its value, through regular maintenance carried out by authorised Hyundai dealers or service providers that comply with the requirements of the warranty and use genuine parts and accessories.

The life expectancy of course depends on your mileage and maintenance. While most cars start to deteriorate after the 100 km mark, yours can still run safely and smoothly as long as you’re caring for your Hyundai and sticking to the recommended servicing schedule.
