an upgrade vehicle and then leaves the Company, or his/her
vehicle eligibility status changes?
Pro-rated refunds are provided
to participants whose status is impacted by a workforce
reduction/position elimination. A pro-rated refund of the
upgrade charge may be refunded to the participant affected
by WFR, based on the period remaining in the Program term,

not include driver-paid options or any paid taxes.
