WASHINGTON – While thousands of federal workers were furloughed because Congress couldn’t agree on a budget, Hyundai is allowing those workers who are not paid to defer their car payments.

The automakers announced it will allow Hyundai owners to stop making car payments for as long as the shutdown keeps them out of work.

The company is also running a promotion that will allow furloughed federal employees to buy or lease a new Hyundai without making payments for three months.

However, the offers only apply to Hyundais that are leased through the company’s financing division.
