For those who are looking for an economical car that is also somewhat fun to drive, a Kia seems like a very sensible choice to make. The safety ratings for Korean makers are superior to most and inferior to almost no other vehicles in their class. If the vehicle will be used to transport the family especially, having a solid safety rating is something that should be required, and Toyota fits this bill with almost all of their offerings. Studying Toyota Vehicle Safety Ratings will give the average buyer an idea of what type of car they will be buying. Everyone knows Toyota has had some trouble in the past, while Hyundai is taking over considerable market share. However, Toyota has spent billions in considerable adjustments to their newly improved safety ratings.
Whether Korean or Japanese, these are car makers that just about any company can do maintenance on. The performance of maintenance takes less time and the parts are less expensive, meaning that the car will be more affordable to maintain. Both in the short term and the long term this is an extremely important advantage to have when purchasing an automobile. Considering that costs for maintenance on other cars can add up to thousands of dollars a year, it is important to know what you want to pay ahead of time.

Hey guys, it has been so long since my last post, I know, but today I have some interesting and useful things, to make you forgive me.
Some of you Hyundai lovers, might have heard about the crash during which a side curtain airbag has allegedly injured a driver in a crash. Thah is not good for anyone, but especially not for Hyundai, therefore the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has decided to open an investigation and check almost 123,000 vehicles.
This happened after NHTSA has received a complaint from a person who has suffered injuries at his face and ears because of the airbag. According to the photos, the ¨guilty evil ¨ was a metal part which perforated from the left edge of the headliner above the driver seat.
From Hyundai´s official statement, we understood that the investigation has just began and will probably last some time: “The evaluation is in the very early stages; neither Hyundai nor NHTSA have had an opportunity to inspect the 2012 Elantra that is the subject of this evaluation.Hyundai has no other reports of injury from side curtain airbag deployment in the 2012 Elantra.”
Let´s hope everything will be ok before anything worse happens!
Hyundai has all the reasons to be proud after the company marked an important milestone Friday morning, the 29th of July. At the Montgomery plant, in Alabama, Hyundai rolled out one millionth Sonata — a Silver 2012 2.0T Limited edition.
“I am so proud of everything our team members have accomplished in the past six years, eclipsing 1,000,000 total vehicles manufactured in November 2009, producing more than 300,000 vehicles in 2010 and now our 1,000,000th Sonata,” president and CEO of Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) Young Deuk Lim said in a written statement.
The Sonata is Hyundai’s top seller in America. Earlier this month, Hyundai announced an all-time sales record for both the month of June and in the first half of the year.
HMMA has produced three different vehicles since its opening in 2005: the Sonata, Santa Fe and Elantra. The plant has about 2,500 employees and has built more than 1.4 million vehicles.

It is important to keep certain tips and hints in mind when going through with such a purchase, in order to get the most out of your money and avoid disappointment in the future…
Used cars are a superb investment; this is mostly due to the fact that the depreciation in value is much less than with a new car, however, before even heading out to view used cars it is vital to have your finances in order. This means making sure you have a full budget in place, enabling you to make an informed decision about exactly what you can or can’t afford to spend when you actually get to testing used cars.
The next step is to be fully aware of the ‘going rate’ for the vehicles that you have got your mind on; this can be done by checking buying guides such as Auto Trader, or online auction websites such as eBay, to make sure that you are not heading into the market without a clue about what things should be costing.
