Hyundai?s Latest Value Innovation


Hyundai continues to set the pace with new automotive products and concepts.? The latest innovation is a consumer protection plan that guarantees the value of a Hyundai trade-in after 24 to 48 months of ownership. 


The all -new Hyundai Assurance Trade-in Value Guarantee is made possible by the strength of Hyundai?s residual values, which have recently been among the highest in the industry.? The program should eliminate any concern about depreciation.

The program will be applied to all new vehicles purchased on or after May 1, 2011 at no additional cost to consumers.

In addition, all Hyundai will continue its complimentary Hyundai Assurance program, which currently includes the 5-year/60,000-mile fully transferable new vehicle warranty, Hyundai?s 10-year/100,000-mile power train warranty, five years of complimentary Roadside Assistance and now Trade-in Value Guarantee.? Hyundai was the first auto company to offer such an extended warranty.

?Hyundai Assurance is a partnership with our owners in their purchase of a vehicle,? said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. ?Depreciation is the single highest cost of car ownership.? While Hyundai?s depreciation is now among the lowest in the industry, Assurance will remove many of the barriers and concerns about vehicle ownership.? Through Assurance, we share in our owners? investment, and the Trade-in Value benefit extends this partnership from the initial purchase all the way through what we hope will be the consumer?s next purchase of another Hyundai.?

Hyundai Assurance Trade-in Value Guarantee is valid for all new cars sold through participating U.S. Hyundai dealerships. The guaranteed trade-in value is determined by the Automotive Lease Guide (ALG) forecast of future value. Customers can trade in their qualifying vehicle towards the purchase of a new Hyundai vehicle during months 24 through 48 of ownership. At the time of trade-in, the customer?s vehicle will be assessed to determine the current market value and compared to the guaranteed value. If the assessed value is higher than the guaranteed value, the customer will be able to apply that value toward the purchase of a new Hyundai vehicle. If the assessed value is less than the guaranteed value, the customer will be able to use the guaranteed value toward the purchase of a new Hyundai vehicle financed through Hyundai Credit.

At time of trade-in, the customer must show proof of vehicle maintenance at the recommended intervals through authorized Hyundai dealerships. Coverage is only applicable when the current market value of a vehicle drops below the guaranteed trade-in value of the vehicle. Lease vehicles are not covered by the Trade-in Value Guarantee.
