COSTA MESA, Calif., May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Starting today, all new Blue
Link-equipped Hyundai vehicles will come standard with three years of
complimentary Assurance Connected Care service. Announced at the 2013 New York
International Auto Show in March, Assurance Connected Care is powered by the
automaker's Blue Link telematics platform, which now has enrolled over 400,000
subscribers. Assurance Connected Care makes Hyundai the only non-premium
automaker to offer a complete package of complimentary safety and car care
services to its owners.




Assurance Connected Care is a suite of safety and car care features providing
Hyundai owners with free proactive services including automatic collision
notification, SOS emergency assistance, enhanced roadside assistance, monthly
vehicle diagnostics reports and maintenance alerts. Assurance Connected Care
makes Hyundai the first manufacturer to include this degree of built-in safety
and car care services standard for three years. The service is fully
transferable to subsequent owners within three years of the vehicle's date of
first use.

"Assurance Connected Care gives us the opportunity to remind our customers
that Hyundai 'has your back,'" said Barry Ratzlaff, Director of Customer
Connect, Hyundai Motor America. "This new suite of Assurance features allows
drivers to feel safe and secure and enjoy a worry-free car ownership
experience. With a simple press of a button in the vehicle, Blue Link agents
are available 24/7/365 to help in emergencies or to schedule car care."

Assurance Connected Care is currently starring in Hyundai's newest promotional
campaign, which features a brand new remix of Bob Marley's iconic track,
"Three Little Birds" created by Stephen Marley and producer/DJ Jason Bentley.
The track is part of the Legend: Remixed project, a collection of remixed Bob
Marley classics, created by renowned artists.

Updates to Blue Link packaging and pricing also will take effect with the
introduction of Assurance Connected Care. Owners of Blue Link-equipped
vehicles with active Assurance Connected Care service will have the option to
upgrade at a reduced price, making features such as remotes start, stolen
vehicle recovery and turn by turn navigation an even better value. Full
pricing and packaging details will be posted
