Help at hand
Hyundai Motors has launched a Road Side Assistance program, with the aim of providing emergency roadside assistance services round the clock. The program is designed to ensure that customers get immediate and hassle-free service in the event of a breakdown.
The scheme will be available as a complimentary service with new vehicles for two years starting February 1, 2010, while existing customers will be offered this option at the best rates. The 24×7 Road Side Assistance program covers services such as: wheel change, fuel delivery up to 5 litres, arrangement of taxis for the customer, opening the vehicle in the event of a key lock-out,
rectifying electrical problems related to the battery and fuse, and car towing to the nearest workshop in cases of an accident.
