Exclamation Overstated Mileage Claims

Wow, big news...will offer fuel debit refunds for 2011 through 2013 year models to make up the difference. That's a First Class response, if they carry through!

Default "Hyundai to pay owners for overstated MPG"

Does anyone know if this applies to ETs?

Hyundai, Kia overstated MPG, will pay owners - Nov. 2, 2012

And is it likely to apply to Canadian cars?

Talking mileage claim

Just went through and completed the fuel reimbursement estimate process with Hyundai. Looks like i am going to get a whopping $16
should just about cover the gas cost to drive to my dealership for them to "verify" the mileage of the vehicle!

Smile MPG refund

I drive a 2012 Azera basic. My first card we for over $75 and I have been getting better that the advertised rate, I will receive the refund as long as I own the car. Just have to go into the dealer and have them verify the mileage. They enter it into the computer and I receive a MasterCard in the mail.

I checked on my car and it says "This car has already been registered".
I wrote Hyundai a letter about transferablilty since this car is still under its 5 yr/60K bumper to bumper.
I also asked them about whom had the gas card. Since it doesnt seem right for the oringal owner to continue to get compensated for the mileage if they sold the car. That should be passed down to the next owner.

But Im sure the "lifetime" term applies to only the original owner, like the 10yr/100K warrantee.
