Hyundai taken to court for lying, making ‘false claims’ to sell cars. Here’s all you need to know
While registering the complaint, the customer maintained that his Ioniq Limited should have come with Assist systems and not with mere warning systems.
Recently, a California-based customer sued Hyundai, the South Korean automotive company, for making false claims to sell their car. As per the complainant’s statement, Hyundai sold him a car with a security feature that did not exist. In his official statement, the man further alleged:
I bought the Hyundai Ioniq Limited from the dealership, which claimed to have Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist systems.
According to reports, Ioniq Limited only has warning systems. Any of the Ioniq’s variants do not feature Assist systems. The former system informs the drivers of the prospect of a collision. In contrast, the latter system allows a vehicle to avoid rear cross-traffic and blind-spot collision via autonomous braking.
While registering the complaint, the customer maintained that his Ioniq Limited should have come with Assist systems and not with mere warning systems. He stated that the car’s window sticker presented the same feature; however, it did not contain advanced technology.
It should be noted that neither did the complainant submit the window sticker’s photo nor did he state which specific Hyundai Ioniq model is involved in the lawsuit. Many other vital details are missing from the accusation. All of these factors come together to imply that the lawsuit would do little to no damage to Hyundai’s image.
Regardless, Hyundai is regarded as one of the most rapidly progressing brands in the international market. The automakers are known for their fantastic product lineup, reasonable pricing, and the best class warranty of 5 years.
