Hyundai Anti Theft Event


GPPD and Hyundai have partnered up on an Anti-Theft Software Update Event scheduled for this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The software upgrade event will provide eligible Hyundai vehicles with anti-theft software developed to protect against the theft mode popularized on social media.

There is no cost and no appointment is needed.  Every Hyundai owner will also receive a free steering wheel lock.

This is open to ALL North Texas Hyundai owners and is conveniently located off of the 161 Toll Road and Arkansas Lane (2950 Epic Place – Epic Indoor Waterpark).
