Hyundai is offering half price car servicing to healthcare workers across Australia during the COVID-19 emergency response and nationwide lockdowns.
A confidential bulletin issued by Hyundai to its national dealer network says the special offer is “designed to offer something back to the many workers across the country that are at the front line of the battle against coronavirus”.
The Hyundai dealer memo says “all workers in healthcare (doctors, nurses, receptionists, mental health personnel and the like” are entitled to a 50 per cent discount on “any scheduled service at an authorised Hyundai dealer”.
To ensure only eligible Hyundai owners take advantage of the offer Hyundai dealers advised service staff to “simply verify the sector the owner is working in … this can be via a name badge, business card or email”.
The Hyundai dealer bulletin says the special offer is available to healthcare workers from 20 April 2020 to 31 May 2020.
The Hyundai offer follows a decision by Mazda to offer healthcare workers in the US a free oil change – whether they own a Mazda or not. However, the free service offer was not matched by Mazda in Australia.
