Smoothing the Path for a New Hyundai Journey!
November 5, 2018
I love my cars and I don't give them up easily. When it became time to move on to a new vehicle, I began my research online. I have loved my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe since I bought it used in 2005. It has taken us on many travels throughout the Southeast. I loved its size, its power on the road, and the space it provided for my teaching supplies. I wanted a clone for my current car; same size and color, but red is not an easy color to find. We located one at Headquarter. It was a Santa Fe, the original model with a 3.6 which I thought was what I needed for the power on the highway. On our first visit to Headquarter, sales friend, Nick Natole, was available for questions, but did not force attention on us. He was extremely upfront and helpful as he provided information regarding the comparisons of the Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Sport. My major concerns had to do with my depth perception and for some reason, I felt the Santa Fe's trunk was longer than what I was used to driving with my 2003. I did not test drive it on that first visit. We left the dealership with the intent to do more research for different types of SUV's. After visiting Nissan, Kia, and a few other dealerships, it became apparent that I would not find what I wanted without going back to the Santa Fe that had been a part of my life for the past 11 years. We returned to Headquarter and from the moment we arrived on the lot, we knew we were in the right place. From our test drive with Nick to the authorization of our sale with management and the financial experience with Roman, it was evident they were there to make me happy and to make this sales experience a positive one. Every question, every concern was met with honesty and with regard to my feelings. I drove away as one very happy owner of a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and we are looking forward to many happy adventures on the road.
