Hyundai Offers Upgraded Assurance Program for 2010

Hyundai Motor America decides to extend and expand their Hyundai Assurance system in 2010. The system will include from now on America’s Best Warranty and 24-hour Roadside Assistance. This assurance program was first introduced in January 2009 as a way to protect consumers in the event they would lose their income by taking the vehicle back.

The system was offered as a complimentary service with every new Hyundai model sold in the United States. America’s Best Warranty refers to a fully transferable five-year, 60,000-mile warranty for new vehicles that covers “components manufactured or originally installed by Hyundai that are defective in material or factory workmanship, under normal use and maintenance”. For powertrain components (i.e., selected engine and transmission/transaxle components) Hyundai offers a 10-year, 100,000-mile warranty, while a 7-year with unlimited mileage anti-perforation warranty covers the bodywork.

"Hyundai Assurance represents our complete commitment to our customers, with job-loss vehicle return coverage, five years of roadside assistance, and our industry-leading 10-year warranty," said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America in a press release.. "Assurance shows that we're doing things a little bit differently at Hyundai, and this is making a difference in our business results. You can expect more of this in 2010, starting with the all-new Tucson and Sonata."

The Vehicle Return Program is a system devised by Hyundai Motor America to help their customers in case they get unemployed. The system is administered by WALKAWAY USA, LLC. and is available to any consumer regardless of age, health, employment history or financed amount of the vehicle and covers up to $7,500 in negative equity. The Roadside Assistance is free for five years with every new vehicle purchased. It works 24/7 and provides the following services:

  • Towing for inoperable vehicles, including accidents
  • Battery jump starts
  • Change flat tire
  • Lock-out assistance
  • Out of gas assistance
  • Trip interruption
