Hyundai Australia will conduct a search of the current registered owner and contact them directly.
The vehicle was written off in an accident, what should I do?
The registry authorities will advise on the status of all vehicles damaged and written off in an accident.
Is my car safe to drive?
Yes, however, if you do receive a notification from Hyundai Australia, please have the vehicle inspected by Pickerings Hyundai without delay.
