Does Hyundai's warranty transfer to Ireland?


I found your article on importing a car from UK very helpful, thanks. My question is, are there any issues regarding the manufacturer's warranty on imported cars? I'm considering purchasing a Hyundai in Northern Ireland and there is over three years left on the warranty; does this transfer without an issue when I bring car to the Republic?

Is my Hyundai's gearbox under warranty?

In January I bought a 141 Hyundai privately with only 60,000 miles on the clock. The car has been stamped on the log book by independent garages (i.e. not Hyundai). Now my car's gearbox has gone and only time it mentions about gearbox servicing in servicing schedule is 96 months. I can understand servicing the engine wrong could bring faults, but as gearbox is a sealed unit not required servicing until 96 months I don't know why Hyundai is refusing to stand over my gearbox. It is saying that it was not properly serviced even though the gearbox was not due to be serviced.

Is this regular practice in your opinion?
