Rip-roaring Hyundai

"Rip-roaring Hyundai is doing things right in all of the automotive categories it competes in - and that applies to the substantial 2012 revisions for it's low-key, but hardly low-rent, Genesis 'luxury sedan'" - Bill Visnic, Motor Matters of the SF Gate

This luxury sedan offers lots of sophistication and power for the price - starting at $34,200.  
The 3.8 liter, 6 cylinder boosted the horsepower from 290 to 333 from last year.  And, come on, who doesn't like more power?  Let's just say you can't imagine buying a luxury sedan without a V8 Engine, don't worry, we've got that for you too.

Owner Loyalty

I have to say, I'm not surprised.  The more I drive around, the more I spot Hyundai vehicles. 

Kelley Blue Book just announced that Hyundai is #1 for owner loyalty for the second consecutive quarter.  

Hyundai has upheld it's number 1 position in brand loyalty, which I felt the need to look up.  Brand loyalty is defined as the situation in which a consumer generally buys the same manufacturer - originated product or service repeatedly over time rather than buying from multiplier suppliers within the same category. There, that's better, now we all know the lingo.  This means, you love your Hyundai and you want to buy another.  That's true for me too. Got my eye on a Santa Fe

"American consumers are so happy with their Hyundais that they put it at the top of the brand loyalty list, according to Motor Trend"

Here's why this might have happened. 
-the creation of delightful new products
-100,000 mile warranty program
-vehicle improvements in styling
-high level of quality for a lower cost

This jump is mildly historic for Hyundai, we're expecting to stay at the Top!

Commuters Beware!

Have we got the perfect cars for you.  With the gray fall weather coming, we know what you're thinking, "no more vacations."  you've got to sit at the desk from 9-5, at least until Christmas.  What could possibly make this better?  Something awesome to drive home.  

The Smart Buy
This 5-door "compact" lets you have the versatility of a station wagon with the gas efficiency of a teensy compact.  The 40 MPG will let you save money on gas without forcing you to compromise style and I'd say it looks even snazzier in the kiwi green.  Hyundai Accent starting at (4-door) $13,205 and (5-door) $15,355 

The Stylist
The Elantra is a size upgrade from the Accent but retains the same MPG.  40.  40 miles per gallon means you can get to and from work on a gallon.  Talk about the penny pincher.  But with heated rear and front seats, leather interior and a smart blue link, no one will know about your penny pinching habits.  you can stop and go all the way from  your door to your desk.  Still under $20,000.

The I-Just-Want-to-Bring-it-All-With-Me
Ever not wanted to unload your car after the kids soccer game or the trip to the outdoor concert?  Well, now you don't have to.  Leave everything just as it is, for next weekend.  Take this baby to and from work and your car will be your best friend.  The Elantra Touring starting at just over $18,000 and giving your 30 MPG this station wagon will have you smiling for years to come.

The Crowd Pleaser
 The Sonata has gotten all sorts of praise from Drivers all over the world.  Want to find out why?  
Not only is it priced to please but this undeniably roomy sedan has lots of space for you,  your goods, and your big family.  The styling is new and makes you feel like a million bucks for just around $20,000.  And the MPG stays well maintained at 34 MPG.  Happy now?

The Mountaineer
This car is more fuel efficient that the Honda CR-V and Rav4.  It has an MPG of 31 and costs around $20,000.  It is a top safety pick and has your name written all over it.  Not only will you see above the crowd in this one but you'll be styling all the way to work.  Enjoy!

The Car-Pooler
The Hyundai Santa Fe is designed for heavy lifting without sacrificing basic essentials. Starting at around $23,000 this SUV has a versatile interior and a handsome, athletic exterior.  Designed to carry you and your friends to work with a hop, skip and a jump.

Teen Driving.

 Considering buying the baby a car for their upcoming birthday?
Here are some interesting things to consider.
  • Look for a car that minimizes the odds for an accident & if an accident occurs - your driver will incur minimal harm
  • Inexperience can lead to lots of problems - it can take a long time to master driving in wind, rain, ice & snow, and since we can't all move to Arizona, help your teen choose a reliable car that won't keep you awake worrying about it having problems.
  • A CAR is the best choice.  With good visibility and lower chance of fishtailing & spin outs.  
  • A BIG car is an even better choice.  Heavy and large leads to safer driving.
  • Make sure that the car is completely roadworthy.  If you are not mechanically inclined have someone take a look at the tires, battery, spark plugs, even the windshield wipers will help assist in clarity.
  • A car dated 2005 or later will usually have great airbags - which clearly offer more security and safety.  If you feel a smaller car is the best (or only) choice for your teen, get one with great airbags.  
  • Here's an interesting thought:  purchasing a car with manual transmission could be a great option.  This will teach your child responsible driving (it is even required in Europe).  The automatic transmission cars can be often too easy to drive, resulting in speeding and irresponsible behind the wheel behavior.  A manual transmission will help your child focus.  
    • On the new Hyundai Veloster the Dual Clutch Transmission (which is manual) mimics an automatic transmission in that it anticipates what gear you will use next making the manual transmission a smoother ride - and a cheaper option too.    
With all of that said, come browse our used & new cars.  
I'm sure your new teen driver will have fun looking through all of our options!
