Hyundai disavows SoCal dealer that abandoned people's cars amid pandemic

We’ve all got weird experiences to share about the coronavirus. Olivia Vera may have one of the weirdest.

She dropped off her car at a Culver City dealer in March because of engine trouble. The dealer subsequently had the car towed away as businesses throughout the region closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The towing company then slapped Vera with thousands of dollars in fees for taking in the abandoned vehicle.

As if things couldn’t get any worse, the 26-year-old Westwood resident faced the very real prospect of her car being sold off this week if she didn’t show up at the storage yard with a bag of cash (and cash only, no checks or credit cards).
