Hyundai already offered one of the best new-car warranties around, and now it’s about to get even better: The South Korean automaker is tacking on three years, or 36,000 miles, of complimentary maintenance starting today.

The offer applies to all model-year 2020 vehicles sold or leased on or after Feb. 1, and the complimentary maintenance will cover oil and oil filter changes, tire rotations and multipoint inspections as called for under the normal maintenance schedule for each vehicle (which can be found in the owner’s manual). This means that other consumables, such as windshield wipers, brake pads and air filters, are not covered under this service.

Opting for luxury still comes with a few additional perks. Genesis, Hyundai’s luxury brand, offers complimentary maintenance with the same parameters — but Genesis will come and pick up your car and drop you off a loaner vehicle.

In addition to the complimentary maintenance, Hyundai still offers a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, five-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and seven-year anti-perforation warranty. Other automakers can match individual parts of these warranties; for example, Mitsubishi and Kia also offer similar powertrain coverage. But taken as a whole, Hyundai now clearly stands apart from its nonluxury competitors.

Volkswagen previously offered the most competitive coverage, but the German automaker announced in July 2019 that its six-year/72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty would be ending for the 2020 model year, dropping it down to four years/50,000 miles. Though the company added two years or 24,000 miles of complimentary maintenance for 2020 models to help offset this reduction, that’s still less than what Hyundai is offering.
