Car Shopping at Towne Hyundai, a Great Experience
January 2, 2013
My husband and I had been shopping for a new vehicle since June 2012 after the untimely demise of our 2003 Nissan Altima in a car accient. We surived, the vehicle was totaled. We went to Towne Auto last summer and met Michael Lindstrom, a young and enthusatic salesman. I was interested in the Sonata and Mike showed us the car inside and out, even explaining everything under the hood. He is very thorough and not at all "pushy". He said when you buy a car from Towne and him, you get him too! His customer service is excellent; he told us if we have any questions/concerns to cal him directly.
My husband is a very cautious consumer and did extensive research on the Sonata as well as the many other vehicles we looked at over the next few months. I loved the Sonata and Mr. Linstrom's sales approach, so we returned one snowy evening and took the Sonata out for a second test drive. We finally decided to purchase our 2013 Hydunai Sonata and took delivery on 12/13/2012.
I love this car; it is a dream! The ride is smooth, the accelaration from 0 to 60 is good, the panoramic sun roof is beautiful, the heated seats come in handy, the dual heat/air control keeps everyone happy, the XM radio with the comedy channels I have been listing to keep me laughing no matter my mood, the blue tooth has been fun to play with especially getting restaurant reviews and navigation assistance!
My only negative point so far is that the operator's driving speed and the posted speed limits do not show up on the map. I'm not sure if this function is not available, or if we haven't figured it out yet. I am sure a call to Mike Lindstrom (Lindy) will straigthen this out.
Everyone at the dealership was very professional and courteous. Even the final paperwork was handled in a efficient and friendly manner. Zero percent interest for 60 months was an excellent selling point. I would recommend this dealer to everyone!
