Hyundai Canada’s Sonata ‘promise’


Hyundai Canada wants its customers to be sure they really like their Sonata so the automaker is giving customers up to 30 days to decide if the Sonata is right for them.

The program lets them return the vehicle and get their money back without fee or penalty. The company is also extending the Sonata's warranty from 5-years or 100,000 km to 7-years or 120,000 km.

The automaker says the “Hyundai Promise” initiative is a nation-wide pilot project the company is exploring to give buyers added confidence in their purchase decision in short term - by accepting the vehicle's return - as well as into the future with a longer warranty.

“We're so convinced that the Sonata will win buyers over in 30 days or less, that we'll give them their money back if it doesn’t,” said John Vernile, V-P of sales and marketing at Hyundai Auto Canada Corp.

“We looked at what the competition had to offer and saw that our Sonata stands toe-to-toe with the best on the market, which is why we can offer this type of program. Buying a car is a big decision, so we want to help assure our customers they made the right choice and can be proud of their Sonata. The Hyundai Promise does that by giving them peace-of-mind both now and over the long term.”

Hyundai Promise is available on the Sonata and Sonata 2.0T (hybrid is excluded) and will be offered for a limited time to finance customers.

The automaker says customers will have the option to activate the money-back program between seven to 30 days after delivery, provided the vehicle has been driven less than 2,000 km, shows no significant damage, has not been in a collision, and the customer can present proof they intend to purchase a replacement new vehicle from a non-Hyundai dealer.

Customers will receive their first month's payment, plus any taxes, fees, levies, and deposit paid at delivery.
