Better Fuel Economy

I bet you have always wondered what the 2012 models of the Accent, elantra, Tucson, Azera, Veloster, Tucson and Santa Fe have in common?  Am I right?  
Recently Hyundai has installed GDI engines in their newer cars.  What does that mean?  Gasoline Direct Injection.  Usually, within the engine, gas sprays a mist for a few moments to allow a combustion that keeps your car running.  But the GDI engines spray a tiny amount of gas at the very last second, which requires a very accurate computer.  In basic terms there is a detailed computer control system that uses less gas to make equal amounts of power.  
For example, pretend you light 4-5 firecrackers at once on your driveway, makes a loud noise, right?  Light one solitary firecracker within a bottle or a soda can and it makes an equally loud noise for a lower cost.  These newer model engines save gas by using less gas.  Revolutionary, I know.

Fully Loaded Mother's Day

 A lot of mom's spend time in the car, whether commuting to work, toting little ones to soccer practice or BOTH, their car can become their second home.  Wouldn't you like to dress their second home up for Mother's Day?
Picture this, Sunday morning she wakes up to a  bouquet of roses, breakfast in bed and a totally cleaned, vacuumed and organized car.  Maybe even some leopard floor mats? Here are a few of our favorites from all around the internet.
1. Folding Cargo Bag for the Trunk.  I know the trunk can become a jumble of cleats, soccer balls, cones and frisbees.  Why not add a logical place for groceries and coupons to go?  Or if you have a green mama she can leave her reusable grocery bags in this organizer.  Handy!

2.  Auto Vase.  These aren't just for Volkswagen Beetles anymore.  Any car you have can be decorated with these bright fun flowers.  My thought?  Get mom the same bouquet of flowers that you put in her car.  What a good surprise! 

3. Leopard Floor Mats.  Do you have a sassy mom who needs some more dress up in her car?  How about these?!  They are perfect for mom who doesn't want to show a lot of dirt or crumbs but wants to show a lot of attitude, and for only $25, it's the most fun gift out there!

4.  Litter Bag.  I personally hate any amount of trash in my car, and I am not a mom.  This is so easy, attach to the back of a headrest and dump whenever you get gas.  Easy for mom to stay organized, clean and fresh smelling!  But, please don't make this the only thing you give mom, it might send the wrong idea. 

5. Back Seat Organizer.  Tired of running after crayons and books?  This organizer is perfect for a neat and tidy mom.  The organizer provides lots of pockets that you can put everything from snacks to headbands in.  The best way to keep your mom's car picked up.  And keep things from getting lost. 

Hope this helps! Remember: flowers, cards, breakfast in bed AND clean and organizer her car with these fun accessories! Mother's Day is May 13.

Orange is "IN"

Not only did I recently see "orange cars," namely the Hyundai Veloster on the IN list in a prominent magazine, but also the Hyundai Veloster is the sponsor of this year's giant Coachella Valley Music and Arts Fesitval.  How cool is that?  

"The problem with the Hyundai Veloster is that it flies in the face of conventional wisdom. You can’t really have it all, says the sober voice. You can’t have a super-stylish, gizmo-loaded, sporty-feeling ride that also gets 40 mpg on the highway.
Apparently, Hyundai never got that memo. That’s the only explanation for the Hyundai Veloster’s generous array of features in a sub-compact that starts at $18,060 and tops out at $23,310. I’m jealous of the 20- and 30-somethings Hyundai is targeting for this car, since there were significantly fewer choices when I was in this demographic."  --Tara Weingarten,

So, if you're looking to up your status, come in and test drive one of our amazing new Hyundai Velosters, you will not want to go home without it, promise.

The Best Place to Save? Your Garage.

No, I don't mean a garage sale. What I mean is what Scott Burns, from the Dallas Morning News, in this article means, "If you have a vehicle that gets 22 miles to the gallon and you replace it with one that gets 44 miles to the gallon and drive 15,000 miles a year, you could save $1,269."  Wow, that is an impressive number.  
For some reason, even though gas is nearly $4/gallon, Americans are still paying up.  And are more than OK with driving a huge SUV.  Now, I understand, sometimes SUVs are a necessity.  But is it really worth over a thousand a year?  
My husband's car recently died and we bought a tiny car for me to drive that has 33 MPG.  It is ridiculous that I only fill it up one time every two weeks and when I fill it, it costs me $35-$40.  Depending on the pump.  It has really changed my thought process on saving money.  
New cars care about gas mileage.  They do.  In 2004 we weren't worried about gas prices, so your older car may be eating up your bank savings account.  Sadly, with summer coming, I don't think gas prices are going to go down. So let me show you a few options that could be up your alley. 

First up! The Hyundai Accent starting MSRP just over $12,500.  Comes in this 4-door option or a 5-door hatchback.  This car has 40 MPG on the highway and would definitely assist in lowering your gas bill.  (Actually all 4 of these cars have an awesome 40 MPG on the highway)

And then comes the Hyundai Elantra (read about my test drive here), with a base MSRP at around $15,345 this car has 5 seats, is actually really spacious and blocks out noise well, and has 40 MPG on the highway.  It is a great family car and even had room for my 5'11" legs in the back seat.  Win.

Looks similar to the car pictured above, but this car is none other than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.  Yes, our first hybrid and yes, the car with this funny commercial and this awesome battery warranty.This car starts around $25,850 and has 40 MPG too.  Drive a hybrid & save the environment, isn't that comforting?

And lastly, the Hyundai Veloster.  I personally would like to trade in my life savings, my 401k and any piggy bank I've ever had to pay cash for this car.  It is amazing.  A sporty car with something that no other car has: 3 doors and not a 2-door with a hatchback, but one door driver side and 2 door passenger side.  You can pick up your kids for school or drag race.  Starting at around $17,300 and 40 MPG there should be no problems affording this one.  
Stop drooling.
