Hyundai-Sime Darby Motor also launched the Hyundai CARE Warranty Extension Programme, allowing for the extension of original warranties that expired in March and April, this year. This initiative is in tandem with Hyundai Motor Company’s launch of its warranty extension policy for Hyundai vehicles worldwide.
The programme aimed to offers peace of mind for Hyundai customers with regards to their warranty eligibility for repairs and other related services, delayed due to the temporary shutdown of all service centres in adherence of the MCO imposed by the government.
“We understand out customers’ predicament of not having access to our service centres during this period, and they are probably worried about their warranty. With Hyundai CARE, we wish to set their minds at ease with regards to their warranty eligibility. Not only do we care about our customers’ health and safety, we care about the health and safety of their vehicles as well,” said its managing director Low Yuan Lung in a statement.
Hyundai CARE ensures that all Hyundai vehicles with original warranties that expire between March 18 to April 18, 2020, will benefit from warranty extensions until May 31, 2020. Nevertheless, should the MCO period is further extend, a 30 days warranties extension will be given from the last day of MCO.
