Earlier this year, Hyundai made headlines with its Assurance program that allows customers to return their Hyundai vehicle if they can no longer afford to make the payments as a result of being laid off. The program, started in collaboration with Walkaway USA LLC, was enhanced to the point where Hyundai said it will add 90 days of payment relief to the existing protection plan while the owner of the car looks for a new job.
The plan helped Hyundai move cars out of its showrooms during the first two months of 2009 as most of its competitors reported a drastic drop in sales. Well, according to KickingTires, no one has used the program so far.
Hyundai spokesman Dan Bedore confirmed that no buyer has taken advantage of the Hyundai Assurance program, which means that 55,133 that bought a Hyundai in 2009 still have their jobs.
