Help for federal employees who can't work during shutdown

Hyundai has announced that it plans to help out all federal employees who find themselves out of work with the government shutdown. The automaker has launched a new payment deferral program aimed specifically at furloughed federal employees.

The program will extend all loan and lease payments during the shut down for current owners affected by the ridiculousness in Washington. "We recognize the impact on family budgets that the furlough will drive," said John Krafcik, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America. "Like we did almost four years ago when we launched Hyundai Assurance, this is our way of saying 'We've got your back' during this uncertain time."

Hyundai says that it's estimated over 800,000 workers will get paid during the shutdown. Obviously, to take advantage you have to be a federal employee and your vehicle has to be leased or financed through Hyundai Finance America.

Aug 29 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Head down, fingers maniacally keyboarding my iPhone. Embroiled, as we baby boomers are seemingly always wont to be, in something we are sure is so earth-shatteringly important that it simply cannot wait. Not paying the slightest attention, as always, to anything around me, I spot a burgundy shape looking vaguely SUV-ish. Thinking it the reddish-hued MKC I was testing, I, without even a furtive glance up, flip the Linc ...

The Accord continues to reign as the most-stolen car in the US but the Model S is now claiming a new and interesting title: the least-stolen car in America. Last year, it wasn't even on the list. Of course, sometimes a Model S is stolen and the most famous case ended with t ...

2014 Kia Forte Koup SX

Aug 27 2014 11:10am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Coupe, Budget, Performance, Kia, New Car Reviews The Kia Forte and Hyundai Elantra have long followed similar paths, with each available in a four-door sedan, a five-door hatch and (most recently) a two-door coupe bodystyle. The recent death of the Hyundai Elantra Coupe in the US may be threatening to change the narrative on these two affordable compact lines, of course, but the Korean two-doors have a lot in common under their distinct skins. Their most recent itera ...

Consumer Reports says Ram 1500 tops fuel economy fight [w/video]

Aug 27 2014 9:27am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: MPG, Chrysler, Dodge, Toyota Consumer Reports takes its independent vehicle testing procedures seriously. In an era when we have to question the EPA's official ratings thanks to recent re-evaluations from Ford and Hyundai, an independent voice is important. So, when CR says something is the best, it's worth paying attention to. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has "about the same fuel-economy numbers that we typically see in a midsized SUV. ...
