Hyundai goes above and beyond for a customer.

Imagine that you’ve just paid off your five year old car when this happens to it:

Todd Jamison doesn’t have to imagine it. His 2004 Hyundai Elantra was one of the two cars crushed by a 62-year-old woman by the name of Tripta Kaushal who was

later arrested

after being identified by one of the fitness center workers where the accident happened (said fitness center worker’s car was the other one crushed).

That had to be a pretty shitty day. The folks at Hyundai thought so too so they did something to cheer him up:

You have to admit that giving Todd a brand-spanking new car free of charge was a pretty nice thing for Hyundai to do and will probably make Todd a customer for life. If nothing else it probably went a long way to relieving him of the stress such an event can cause. Kudos to Hyundai for stepping up and helping out even when they had no obligation to do so.

  1. Cost of 2004 Elantra: $7,000.00
    Cost of 2009 Elantra: $18,000.00
    PR for Hyundai: Priceless

    Practice random acts of kindness!



  2. Not sure what this has to do with the #atheism tag I found the link through, but go Hyundai.  I’m happy to contribute to their good PR for actually giving way-beyond-good customer service.

    Perhaps Amazon, United Airlines, and a few others should take a few lessons (


  3. The Global Atheist folks tend to re-tweet my post announcements and they automatically add the atheist tag. I can only assume it’s because I’m an atheist as not everything I blog about is atheism related.

  4. Though it was good PR for the car company I agree it was a very kind and generous gesture on their behalf. And what bad parking eh?!

  5. Hyundai is really coming up as a company and their quality is improving every year. They will likely give the Japanese a run for their money in the future. After seeing this I think I would consider them.
