Hyundai i30 2011: What warranty is offered on a new transmission?

Hyundai replaced the transmission in my 2011 Hyundai i30 Trophy FD at 84,000 km under warranty due to complete failure. My car now has just hit 124,000 km and I have been told that there is another fault with this transmission. I would like to know what kind of warranty Hyundai guarantee on such major repairs. I can only seem to get a vague answer of 20,000 km or 12 months, which seems totally unreasonable for a brand new transmission. Any help and advice you can give me is greatly appreciated.

On the surface it does seem unreasonable that the new transmission is not covered by the warranty. I would press Hyundai for an explanation of the problem, and an answer as to why the replacement transmission isn’t covered. If that doesn’t get a satisfactory response I would contact the Consumer Affairs people in Victoria and enlist their help.
