New....

Scott went out and bought a new car today! His old car was a 2000 Hyundai Sonata. It was a great car, but at 8 years old and over 100K on it, we needed to look at something new. We know that when we move to SC, we'll be living away from post, and he'll be doing a lot of driving. Makes sense to have a good car that will survive a few years of long drive times.

What did he get? Why, a 2009 Hyundai Sonata, of course! We love Hyundai, to be quite honest. They have the best warranty out there, and were offering it long before the other guys jumped on the bandwagon (and many car manufacturers have not done that yet). They offer a 5 year/60,000 mile bumper to bumper...and a 10 year/100,000 mile power train. And you know what? Their product is GOOD. We only had minor issues with our old Sonata - a broken visor, the turn signal fell off (that happens when you hold the turn signal down as you're rounding a corner to make sure it stays on!), the rheostat on the automatic window and the speakers in the door failed. That was it. And service was always quick to fix the issues. And for the record...I LOVE the color!!!

So...here's our new car:

Beautiful car! I love the color too, and for the record, we once had a Hyundai, and it was one of the best cars we ever had. Good choice. With foreign currency sinking, you probably got a good deal on it, no?

Congratulations on the upgrade! It looks like a great car.


This seems to be the time of year to upgrade. I did the same within the last few weeks!

You will be here in no time, huh?

CONGRATULATIONS! I always wondered about Hyundai. I currently drive a Toyota and Love their quality as well. Good price, great quality, great milage. I will have to look into Hyundai as another viable option for a new vehicle in the future.
