Has anyone gone thru the claims process on the MPG fraud on Elantras?

Hey-Kate, I thought it was you who had gone thru the debit card process. I need to take care of that soon.

You might want to take a look at this topic here where we have discussed all things related to the restatement of the EPA mileage figures. Hyundai Mileage Claims Thread

At this point I also would not call it Elantra MPG "fraud." Until we know that Hyundai acted recklessly with intent to harm the average consumer I think "misstatement" might be a better word choice biggrin.gif

Hey-I agree. It was a misstatement of MPG ratings.

yes I actually went through it about a week ago with my dealership.. went online to input the VIN, my informationa and mileage, online it stated I was to receive approx $157 of reimbursment, took it to the service manager to sign off on it, inputted my information and told me in about 2 weeks I should have the visa gift card in the mail..

pretty simple and for $157, damn straight im gonna report it.

Thanks for the replies. I was glad to see that Hyundai sent me a letter this week explaining the process too. Not too much of a hassle, other than going to dealership.


It'll almost be like a driving bonus once a year!! laugh.gif

It's retarded. But whatev's. Just remember, ain't nothin' free. So when next years cars are $X more than this years, I don't want to hear the whining and bitching about it.
