Hyundai’s Assurance and Assurance Plus programs were hits in 2009, helping the South Korean automaker post an increase in sales amidst a struggling industry. For 2010, Hyundai has expanded its Assurance program to include “America’s Best Warranty” and 24-hour roadside assistance.
New Hyundai buyers will still be able to return the car should they lose their job under the expanded Assurance program, but also receive 24-hour roadside assistance and “America’s Best Warranty” at no extra cost.
“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 of Hyundai Motor America.
The highlight of Hyundai’s expanded Assurance program is the 24-hour roadside assistance. This provides all Hyundai buyers with the security of knowing they won’t be left stranded on the side of the road should anything go wrong with their car. Hyundai will provide roadside assistance if the vehicle becomes disabled for any reason. Roadside assistance is covered for five years and unlimited mileage.
With America’s Best Warranty, Hyundai really does provide the auto industry’s best warranty. The main feature of the warranty is 10-year/100,000-mile coverage on all stock powertrain components. New Hyundais are also covered by a 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty, under which Hyundai will repair or replace any components on the car originally manufactured or installed by the company. Hyundai also provides other coverage, including an 8-year/80,000-mile federal emissions warranty, providing security for those in states that test emissions. America’s Best Warranty is fully transferable.
