Warranty Information


Unlimited kilometre warranty.
Genesis motor vehicles are manufactured using high-quality materials and progressive engineering technology in conjunction with advanced quality control techniques.

Genesis Motors Australia provides a 5-year unlimited kilometre warranty against defects arising in materials or manufacture for all Genesis vehicles* other than Genesis vehicles used at any time during the warranty period for commercial application^.

Consumers will have rights and remedies in addition to the warranty provided in this passport. This warranty should not be read as excluding, restricting or modifying the rights and remedies of consumers under statutes, such as the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

For the period of 5 years following the date of first registration (or, if the vehicle has been used for commercial application^, 130,000km,
whichever comes first), Genesis Motors Australia warrants that the vehicle originally manufactured shall be free from defects arising in workmanship or materials of the mechanical and electrical components of the vehicle subject to the conditions outlined under “Warranty Exclusions.”

The warranty periods indicate that a vehicle warranty is valid until expiry of the stated period commencing from the date the vehicle

was first registered, or the date upon which the vehicle travels the stated kilometres, whichever occurs first.

* Subject to the terms and conditions of warranty set out in this passport.

^ Commercial Application means that the vehicle has at any time been used or is currently used for a commercial purpose, and such uses include without limitation; taxi, hire or rental vehicle, courier vehicle, driving school vehicle, security vehicle, tour or bus operator and emergency services vehicle.
