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.

Pondering perplexing parking puzzles

Sep 19 2014 2:34pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

In the long lineup of vehicles, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata I’m picking up is perfectly parked in the centre of its space, making door dings unlikely. I notice things like this about parked vehicles. I get in and press the start button and, after a welcome chime, there’s a warning sound and a message flashes in the centre window of the instrument cluster that reads ‘Align steering wheel’. A graphic below the text shows the wheels of the Sonata pointing to the left and an ...

Hyundai Works With Congress to Launch Fuel Cell Infrastructure

Sep 18 2014 3:48am CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

In June of 2014, the United States saw Hyundai offer the first commercial, for-lease hydrogen fuel cell car, the Tucson Fuel Cell (check out our test drive, here). The problem with fuel cell vehicles, though, is that there isn't an infrastructure to support them. That is why Hyundai is working with the House Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Caucus, the Department of Energy, and Congress to find a way to support these vehicles.  The infrastructure will be improved though. California app ...

Hyundai Sonata - Drive Notes

Sep 17 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

You may recall my first drive experience with the all-new 2015 Hyundai Sonata. It took place in the heartland of Alabama, along I-65 at Hyundai’s Montgomery Assembly Plant. There I spent time in with all three Sonata models: the 1.6-liter, I-4 Turbo in the Eco model, the 2.4-liter, I-4 volume engine, and the sportier, 2.0-liter, I-4 Turbo. All three made a positive impression during the short routes over the busy afternoon. A more extended test was ...

2015 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2015 Kia K900 Test Drive Comparison

Sep 17 2014 3:46am CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis and 2015 Kia K900 are two hot contenders for the Luxury Sedan crown, but do they have the punching power to keep up with the established luxury brands? If you think that the Korean brands are just for inexpensive little runabouts, you’re in for a rude awakening. Both Hyundai and sibling Kia have gone upscale, hoping to keep happy current owners in the fold as earnings and desires rise. And there are also lots of buyers from traditional luxury labels that would be happy t ...
