September: National Campus Safety Month

In 2010 a special "National Campus Safety Awareness Month Supplement" was released - a special publication designed to encouraged students in US Colleges and Universities stay up to date on federal rules relating to campus emergencies.  These rules and regulations were put into effect in 2008 - mostly in part of the tragic 2007 Virginia Tech Shootings.  The US Government wanted to make sure that campuses are better prepared to respond to any kind of emergency.

Here at Eckert Hyundai we know most of you college students are into safety.  Not only do we want you to stay up to date on your school's safety policies but also stay up to date on your car's safety features.  We want you to know what Hyundai's Bluelink Safety & Assurance Features are to give you (and your mom) some peace of mind. 
  • Enhanced Roadside Assistance - automatically transmits your location and vehicle information to a response center for a quicker assistance time
  • SOS Emergency - automatically transmits you to a dispatcher for immediate assistance.
  • Automatic Collision Notification - in the event of an accident where a minimum of one airbag deploys automatic owner and location information are sent to a response center.  Then an operator will attempt video communication with the car's occupants in order to forward any necessary information to an arriving emergency service vehicle. 
  • Stolen Vehicle Recovery, Stolen Vehicle Slowdown and Stolen Vehicle Immobilization - with these you have a better chance of recovering a stolen vehicle.  As soon as your vehicle is stolen and a report has been filed with the Police Department a response center can help locate and recover the car.  Slowdown and Immobilization can further assist in the recovery of the car and even prevent it from starting.
  • Alarm & Panic Notification - want someone to always know if you're OK?  Send an email, text or voice mail to a family member or friend with a press of your panic button on your key fob.  Genius!
For Mom & Dad 
  • Geo-Fence, Curfew Alert and Speed Alert - keep a close watch on your child and be notified if they pass a certain space parameter, are out past a curfew or go over the speed limit.  
Just a few ideas to help you feel safer this school year!  Read up, study hard and watch where you're going.

2013 Veloster Turbo

"Under the hood of the front-wheel-drive four-door hatchback is a slightly modified version of the same direct-injected 1.6-liter four-cylinder, now with its intake boosted to 19 ps.  The new rating works out to 201 horsepower and 194 pound-feet of torque -- an impressive output of 125.63 hp per liter (eye-for-eye with the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport)."

"Hyundai's big idea is to have their halo car at the bottom, not the top of the line.  I personally adore this idea, as it gives a much bigger range of people the chance to own a marque's most personal and creative effort.  You have to admit, the usual halo car concept is kind of a tease - you go in the Ford dealer to gawk at the GT, and come home in a Taurus?  That's a letdown.  I'd like to see more manufacturers take Hyundai's approach."

Happy Labor Day

"Labor Day is annually held on the first Monday of September. It was originally organized to celebrate various labor associations' strengths of and contributions to the United States economy. It is largely a day of rest in modern times.
The first Labor Day was held in 1882. Its origins stem from the desire of the Central Labor Union to create a holiday for workers. It became a federal holiday in 1894. It was originally intended that the day would be filled with a street parade to allow the public to appreciate the work of the trade and labor organizations. After the parade, a festival was to be held to amuse local workers and their families. In later years, prominent men and women held speeches. This is less common now, but is sometimes seen in election years." --Time&Date

The Sales and Service Staff at Eckert Hyundai are taking the day off to spend time enjoying friends and family.  We hope you are doing the same! Happy Labor Day!
