Safety and serenity of a vehicle’s passengers

Posted on 23 January 2012 by admin

The following content was shared by a recent customer at Ron Tonkin Hyundai.

Yes, her story is very complimentary of our dealership.  Thank you, Teah Smith.

Most importantly, she speaks to the safety and desirability of the Hyundai Sonata based upon her recent experiences.  This is a story that can be very helpful to people struggling with not just the financial decisions involved in their next vehicle purchase, but with the most important element involved in their next vehicle purchase–the safety and serenity of the vehicle’s passengers.

 

To the folks at Hyundai,

Over the weekend I think my husband and I went to about 10 different dealerships.  The customer sevice is exactly what you expect from a dealership.  We were at our wits end and wanted to give up on finding a car.  Can’t really do that when you need to find something to drive. 

We came into your dealership yesterday… and right off the bat the sales man made us feel comfortable with his down to earth personality and no pressure what so ever to buy.  His name is Cameron Hollis.  I thank him for making it a pleasureable experience.

I also want to thank… I don’t know is name, but we were just about to leave because there was one more car that I wanted to look at.  Well the man said “what will it take for you to not leave”.  We jokingly said “drop the price to $6,500″.  He opened the door and said… lets see what we can do”.  We figuered we were already there, so why not.  We were offered coffee and really didn’t think we would leave with what we wanted to pay.  Well yes, there was a little wheelin and dealin but I had fun doing it.  We got the price down to what we were willing to pay.  After looking at [Kelley] blue book… I think we bought it for $2,000 under.  How awesome is that!

Now to the most important part to me.  A couple weeks ago I was in a roll over accident and it totalled my car and I had some minor injuries.  Mentally is where it messed me up the most.  It was very hard for me to drive after that.  I kept picturing the accident in my head.  It was an awful experience. 

Anyhow, to my point.  We bought a 2008 Hyundai sonata.  This morning I drove my daughter to school and I didn’t think about my accident at all.  All I could think about was how this car made me feel like I was driving on a cloud.  It’s so comfortable and smooth.  Most of all, I felt safe.  I want to go out and do a road trip just because I like driving it so much. 

Thank you to Cameron for making us feel comfortable and thank you the man that opened the door and said “lets see what we can do”.  I am very happy we chose to stay.  Can’t imagine driving anything else now.  Thank you all so much.

Teah Smith :)

Reasons to Finance Your Next Car or Truck Purchase

Posted on 03 January 2012 by admin

Many people are considering a new or used vehicle purchase.  However, questions remain as to whether financing or paying cash for the next vehicle purchase is the appropriate option.  Below are four reasons why financing might be the best option for you.1. Helps Save Money

If you are able to take out a loan at a low rate of interest, chances are you are able to save a good amount of money.  Financing a vehicle purchase enables you to use your money to make necessary investments with the money you do not use for a cash purchase.  Money kept in a savings account or invested in other channels will offer a higher rate of interest than using your cash towards a vehicle.

2. Affordable Loan Payments

If you have a strict budget and maintain your monthly expenses well, keeping your payments within a structured amount affords you the flexibility and freedom to build a cash reserve for future purchases.

3. Tax Advantage

You might be afforded a tax deduction with your car purchase based upon the usage of your vehicle and your tax structure.  Check with your financial adviser and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to confirm your eligibility first.

4. No Mileage Restriction

Financing a vehicle purchase affords you the opportunity to drive as many miles as you want–there are not any mileage restrictions like some automotive leases.  This helps you drive your new vehicle an unlimited distance.
