Hyundai Offers Assistance Program in the Face of Declining Sales

Montgomery, Alabama – Hyundai Motors Manufacturing is struggling with declining sales. The Montgomery plant reports December 2008 sales were down over 48 percent in comparison with December 2007 figures.

In an attempt to boost sales, Hyundai is out with a new program aimed at encouraging people to buy Hyundai vehicles. It's called the Hyundai Assurance Program, and it basically allows people who are leasing or buying a Hyundai financed vehicles to return them - if they fall on hard economic times.

Hyundai Motors Manufacturing spokesman Robert Burns tells WVAS that only certain conditions would qualify a person to participate in the program. Anyone, for example, buying or leasing a new Hyundai who loses his or her job through no fault of his own can participate in the program.

Hyundai produces the Sonata sedan and the Santa Fe SUV at its
Montgomery, Alabama plant.
