Warranties that end between March and May 2020, extended to June, 30th.
This program involves more than 1.21 million vehicles worldwide.
With the lock-down due to the ongoing COVID-19 still in effect, Hyundai Motor has decided to implement C A R E, a warranty extension policy for its vehicles worldwide. The goodwill gesture comes at a time when the majority of its customers are unable to take their vehicles to Hyundai service points.
The principle behind this is quite simple. If your car’s 5-year warranty expired in March or is expiring in April or May, it may qualify for an extension until June 30th, 2020. The criteria in order to be eligible are quite simple. Other than the warranty expiring in this time period, as an owner, you must have taken possession of the vehicle before March 1st, 2020.
Don Romano, President, and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada said: “We are looking for every chance to help our Hyundai family during these extraordinary times. We understand that many of them may currently not be able to visit us for vehicle servicing. With Hyundai C A R E, we want to give customers a sense of relief concerning their eligibility for warranty repairs and related services in the coming months.”
This decision, which will likely cost Hyundai Motor next to nothing, is brilliant. Customers, car owners, and people, in general, appreciate these deeds as they demonstrate care. This will probably be enough to convince many current owners to stay within the brand when the time comes to replace their current vehicle.
