Hyundai has a dedicated section of its website dedicated to information regarding miles per gallon compensation. People can use the website to estimate a reimbursement amount or file an online claim. You can also visit a Hyundai dealer to capture the car's mileage and order a debit card.
As of 2015, Hyundai offers a lifetime reimbursement program for many of its vehicles for which the MPG rating was overestimated. Using Hyundai's website, you use the reimbursement estimator feature to come up with an initial estimate of reimbursement. Next, take the vehicle to a Hyundai dealer to take a reading of the actual mileage. Hyundai then orders a debit card to send to the vehicle owner.
If you don't want to return to a Hyundai dealer repeatedly to capture mileage, you can take a lump sum payment as part of a class action lawsuit. Hyundai sent notices to eligible owners through the mail. File a claim online for a lump sum payment by using the vehicle's vehicle identification number and the identification mentioned on the settlement notice mailer sent out by Hyundai. The court is scheduled to decide whether to not to approve the lump sum settlement on June 11, 2015, and any appeals after that date could delay lump sum payments.
