For anyone who is currently financing or leasing a Hyundai, the auto maker will allow them to defer their payments during the duration of the shutdown. Hyundai created their Assurance program at the beginning of the recession and allowed individuals to defer their payments then, this policy will be reinstated for this current struggle.
Hyundai is also trying to help government employees who need to purchase or lease a car, but can’t due to an uncertain financial future. Anyone who comes to Shaffer Hyundai can purchase a new Hyundai vehicle or lease one, deferring all payments for 90 days when they work through Hyundai Finance America.
Shaffer Hyundai stocks the latest models from Hyundai, including everything from the popular midsize Sonata to the luxury Equus. The dealership also has a large stock of Certified Pre-Owned and used Hyundai models. Anyone interested in taking advantage of the offer can apply for financing online or at the dealership.
The government shutdown has also impacted the auto industry in other ways. The National Highway Traffic Safety Association, which provides crash safety tests, has said they will not be updating their web content regularly during the government shutdown. This means they will not be able to send out recall notices or investigate any consumer complaints about vehicle deficiencies.
In the meantime, the Shaffer Hyundai service department can inform anyone about existing Hyundai recalls or other important safety information. The dealership always tries to keep its customers abreast of any new recall news.
For more information about Hyundai’s new deferment program, please contact Shaffer Hyundai. The dealership is located at 1000 W. US Highway 30 in Merrillville Indiana and is open Monday through Saturday each week for anyone interested in a test drive. They can be reached through their website or by calling (219) 736-2277.
