Hyundai Now Guarantees the Value of Your Trade-In
This program gives Hyundai buyers a solid number to determine what their car will be worth two to four years down the line as a trade-in.
The trade-in value is calculated using the industry-standard Automotive Lease Guide.
This new initiative goes into affect on all Hyundai models starting in May.
Hyundai is quick to point out that the residual value for its models is already among the highest in the industry, and that this new program offers one of the benefits of leasing, but with all the benefits of owning.
To qualify, the vehicle must be purchased at an authorized Hyundai dealership and then traded in within 24 to 48 months on a new Hyundai vehicle.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
