Hyundai Assurance - A Company I Can Get Behind
I couldn't believe my ears yesterday. I was watching TV and a Hyundai commercial came on touting their auto buyback program, showing the faith Hyundai has in Americans. It's called Hyundai Assurance. The program allows you to lease or buy a new Hyundai, and return it if you lose your income within the next year. This is the same company that, 10 years ago, came out with America's Best Warranty. 10 years, 100,000 miles.
It's available to everyone, regardless of age, health, or job situation. It's available on all new Hyundai's and covers up to $7,500 in negative equity.
It covers you under all of these circumstances:
1) Involuntary unemployment
2) Physical disability
3) Loss of driver's license due to medical impairment
4) International job transfer
5) Self employed personal bankruptcy
6) Accidental death
This is coming from a car company that had it's first North American Car of the Year winner with the Hyundai Genesis this year.
In a time when American auto manufacturers are looking for handouts, Hyundai is an example of everything right in the auto industry.
