Hyundai Elantra GT - Buying used 1 year old, part of rental fleet

Looking to potentially purchased a Hyundai Elantra GT.

Was looking to purchase new however it seems like Hyundai never has cash incentives for this model.

Tucson has $4000 off cash and the GT has 0$ incentive...

After browsing autotrader it seems that there is a few 2018 models that were previous daily rentals with around 30-50,000 KMS.

Has anyone had experience purchasing a vehicle used a daily rental?
Does Hyundai factory warranty still apply?

Yes factory warranty still applies. Rental or not, the vehicle is used so do your own research before you buy.

Are you sure the warranty still applies? Usually when vehicles are commercially used,. The factory warranty is voided

Is your thought because everyone knows including the manufacturer that rental cars gets beat on because it's a rental.

That's what i'm thinking.

I really don't mind purchasing a previous daily rental aslong as it comes with a factory warranty.

I purchased a commercially used truck. Warranty was not void. How would this even be possible? There's plenty of shops out there that make a business out of selling rentals. Besides, you can easily call up any dealer with the VIN and determine it's warranty status as well. Which should always be done to anyways to validate the warranty start period.

Resale will be killed tho.

If that is your only concern, you could have easily got the vin and verified yourself instead of waiting for a response, getting it and than questioning it. Holy smokes. Is it so difficult these days to pick up the phone to ask a question to the source instead of creating a thread and getting mixed advice and having no clue still on what the right answer is....

Hyundai and Kia are one of the only brands I would consider buying an ex rental because the factory warranty applies upto 100k km.

Call Hyundai or Kia corporate yourself with the VIN to verify if you are unsure.
