Three Problems Drivers Overlook That Can Ruin a Car

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Your owner’s manual lines out the manufacturer’s recommendation plan for your vehicle, but sometimes life gets in the way. Maybe it’s working long hours at the office that makes you shrug off some maintenance need. Maybe it’s a cost concern. Whatever the reason, here are three of the biggest problems drivers ignore that eventually lead to the death of their car. If you’ve got any maintenance issues, contact CardinaleWay Hyundai today to get your repairs done!

Don’t Ignore the Check Engine Light!

No matter when it might flash on to alert you of an impending issue, your Check Engine Light is basically the heartbeat of your car. Sure, it can elicit a groan when it comes on unexpectedly, but ignoring it will do nothing but harm to your vehicle. As hard as it can be to cram an unexpected service appointment into your schedule, you need to do just that. Just think, the longer you wait the more damage you could be doing to your car, which will in turn cause repair costs to increase. Taking a little time now could save you a lot of money in the future!

Ignoring TPMS Light/Not Checking Tire Pressure

If you just give your tires the eyeball test, they might look properly inflated. Then you pull out onto the highway and accelerate only to blow a tire or wind up with a flat within seconds. Don’t judge tire pressure by appearance. Even if your tires are properly inflated, even just one stutter over a pothole could put you below the recommended pressure.

If your vehicle is equipped with one, your TPMS light serves as a warning system letting you know right when one or more of your tires is deflated beyond what is considered safe by your car’s producer. If this light comes on while you are driving, pull over as soon as is safely possible and fill your tire with air..

Neglecting Fluid Checks or Skipping an Oil Change

There’s more than just motor oil and gasoline that keeps your car riding smooth! While motor oil and gasoline might indeed be the most critical fluids to monitor, items like brake fluid, engine coolant, transmission fluid and power steering fluid are all important.  Run low on one, and it could severely impact your driving experience. With newer vehicles, you may not need an oil change every 3,000…it could be double that for newer models. Oil changes are essential in ensuring the long engine life for your car and monitoring other fluids responsibly is also key to keeping your car road ready.

If you run into any of the issues listed above or any issues regarding your vehicle, the Service Department at CardinaleWay Hyundai is always prepared to get your car back on the road as quickly as possible!

Hyundai Expertly Integrating Bluetooth and Voice Command Technology

Monday, August 29th, 2016

Imagine walking into your garage and settling into your automobile. Speak a simple command and the navigation system automatically turns on. Directions are generated at a moment’s notice. This is a reality not too far in the future for Hyundai.

Perhaps the most incredible thing will be that your car can speak and understand more languages than any person on the planet. It can differentiate between dialects and accents. After speaking one command, you’ll be on the road, headed to your destination. It will be that simple.

Automakers like Hyundai are intently focused on integrating voice command systems. Voice command is an expectation of the modern automobile consumer. Other voice-command related features, like driverless cars, are also connected to these developments.

As technology continues to evolve and integrations are sought for vehicular implementation, companies like Apple and Google are vying for their systems to be a part of the game. But this technology has to be perfect before it becomes available to the public. One voice command error in a car could be the difference between life and death. Manufacturers have a long hill to climb before releasing the function to the market.

Hyundai considers its automobile IT laboratory staffs as “special ops troops.” The research center was created by Hyundai to rapidly accelerate the company’s voice command tech as soon as possible. Hyundai’s lab have rolled out a voice command system that simplifies the entire process by addressing common issues involving accents and dialects while also looking to streamline the process from a series of individual commands into a one command that is understood completely with no errors.

Be sure to check out all the great Hyundai technology at CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona!

The First Ever Hydrogen Powered Hyundai Tucson Makes Its Debut To Canadian Buyers

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Tucson Hydrogen

In recent Hyundai news, the Tuscon was the first ever vehicle to be made by Hyundai in the hydrogen range of cars and it made its grand debut in Canada. The only station in Canada that refuels hydrogen in cars is the Institute for Research on hydrogen. This institute and Hyundai have entered into a mutual agreement with each other to help refuel Hyundai’s hydrogen operated cars and even rents out hydrogen to such companies.

This agreement entered into between the two parties will allow students and the teachers from the institute to test out this hydrogen model from Hyundai for the next four years to come. They will be able to test out the car during the harsh winter conditions in the Quebec district of Canada and these tests will be closely scrutinized and monitored by the Department of Transport in Canada.

Pierre Arcand, the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources was present at the debut and unveiling of the hydrogen Hyundai car and even had the rare opportunity of taking it out for a short drive even though it was just for a few short minutes. It was the second test drive for the minister in Canada, the first test drive being in sunny California. After all, how many of us will ever actually get to drive a car powered solely by hydrogen.

The minister also took this opportunity to make the announcement of the 200,000-dollar funding to the Institute for Research on hydrogen for further research and development activities on the hydrogen powered vehicle.

For more information on Hyundai’s Hydrogen vehicle, get in touch with Hyundai of Corona.

It will be cascading and be bordered by LED daytime vertically stacked running lamps. This gives the new car a distinct face. In a sentence, the appearance of this car mey not be the most beautiful in the market, but will also be extremely eye catching. There will be superlative bodywork.

The other aspects of the car also appear promising. According to Hyundai, the car will have an advanced connectivity and safety technology built within it. The engine will also be a dynamic one, and may include 260 hp-turbo four.

Hyundai Tucson Hydrogen Powered Released In Canada

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

Tucson Hydrogen

Toyota and Hyundai have both chose the RHI or the Institute for Research in Hydrogen located in Canada to test out their new hydrogen-powered cars as Quebec is a favorable place and accepts clean technologies more than any other place in Canada.

The researchers and professors at RHI are excited to start performing tests on the Toyota and Hyundai models. And Quebec is one of the most desired and beautiful places in the world to show off and test out this unique hydrogen technology because the levels of electricity are so pure and clean in this province. In fact, Quebec is much cleaner than certain places in china where an electric car is said to cause more pollution than a gasoline car because the electricity is produced from coal.

The engineers at RHI will thoroughly examine the cold start, mileage, winter performance in the context of routine everyday life using data acquired from the equipment that has been installed in the hydrogen-powered vehicle. The director of RHI says that strict standards and protocols for operations and performance have already been communicated to the appropriate department of RHI as well as the car manufacturer.

After the minister of energy and natural resources announced the grant of 200,000 dollars towards the research and development activities at RHI, the people at RHI will try their best to render inexpensive hydrogen technology for these cars as well as a number of other electric vehicles also taking the help of their miniature electric car.

How The 100,000 Mile Hyundai Road Test Was Completed

Friday, August 19th, 2016

2016 Genesis

The Hyundai Genesis has covered more than 80,000 miles out of the targeted 100,000. The car has been taken around the country on long drives but never on car chases like those seen on the TV shows. It was time to take the sturdy Genesis out on an adventure.

The day’s driver had the brilliant idea of letting his childhood partner in crime (now a police officer) drive the Genesis. It would have been exciting to see the police officer’s reactions to the rear wheel drive and V8 engine fitted Hyundai Genesis. The driver wanted the cop’s opinion about the car being a part of a high speed pursuit as required for the cars belonging to the police fleet.

The cop got into the car in full regalia. The driver thought the ideal situation would be to drive with the cop hanging out of the window ready to fire. The cop refused this but suggested buying drugs.

If drugs were not to be found they would go looking for a call girl named Mercedes. But dope boys were not to be seen that day and the mileage for the day had to be covered. Stopping for Mercedes was not a good idea. So the Genesis could not have much of an adventure that day.

If you would like to know more about the story behind how the Hyundai Genesis covered its journey of 100,000 miles, please visit the CardinaleWay Hyundai showroom today or visit their website now.

A Look Into The Hyundai Genesis 100,000 Mile Road Test

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

2016 Genesis

The extra long term Hyundai Genesis has covered 100,000 miles. The car traveled the length and breadth of the country to pile up those magic numbers on the odometer. The sedan had been taken out to cover around 500 miles every day in all sorts of weather conditions.

The Hyundai Genesis runs on a powerful 4.6 liter V8 engine. It has a six speed automatic transmission. It drives quite smoothly. The car has an excellent sound system to keep you company throughout the 500 miles that was covered every day. The cabin is very comfortable too. There is plenty of leg room.

The journey began in Ohio amidst torrential rain. It covered 1000 miles that day alone. The next stop was Michigan. It averaged about 23 mpg on the interstate. Its cruising experience can make the Genesis the Bugatti Veyron of road trips. At one point the sedan was driven at 71 mph in a 55 mph zone. The average mileage of the sedan has been between 22 mpg and 25 mpg.

The thumb switch used to switch on and off the engine whenever caught in traffic makes the drive easy and smooth. The car was easy to operate throughout and let you remain in control. The car lets you travel 400 plus miles without refueling.

Taking A Look At The Hyundai Genesis Over The Long Term

Monday, August 15th, 2016

2016 Genesis

The fuel economy and mileage of the Hyundai Genesis is quite respectable. The EPA had estimated it to be 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highways. The car did an average of 23 mpg. There were stretches of empty highways where the Genesis managed to touch 30 mpg.

The performance of the engine at the end of 100,000 miles was almost similar to what it was at 2,000 miles. It peaked from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds. The final braking performance was a bit slow. It traveled 175 feet before coming to a stop from 70 mph. The cold weather may have been responsible for this. The response of the automatic transmission was a bit inconsistent.

In the interior of the car, the seat cushions reflected some wear and tear. You could hear the wind whistle through the sunroof. There was a squeak from the dash too. These are all quite common for a car that has been on the road for so long and covered so many miles in varying road and weather conditions.

Other than these faults, the Genesis proved to be quite durable and reliable even after traveling those extra 20,000 miles. The structure of the car has remained tight and intact. The Genesis’ achievements are respectable.

More interesting facts about the long term test mileage of the Hyundai Genesis are available at the CardinaleWay Hyundai showroom at Corona. Or you can visit their website for more related information.

40 MPG From A Vehicle That Isn’t A Hybrid

Friday, August 12th, 2016

Hyundai Elantra

The second part of the discussion throws further light on the fuel efficiency of the Hyundai Eco and its benefits as compared to the other Elantra models of Hyundai.

There is no doubt that it is a win-win situation and is highly welcome that justifies the huge projected savings at all gas pumps. You need to just pay an extra amount of 400 US dollars to opt for an Eco as compared to an Elantra SE for enjoying the benefit of fuel efficiency, at least until the time the prices of fuel are low.

There is another major distinction between an Eco from the remaining lineup of Hyundai Elantra and that is the transmission enjoyed by the former.

However, apart from the above feature, in all other ways, it can be safely stated that an Eco is quite similar to the remaining lineup of the Hyundai Elantra models and that is not a bad thing at all.

The Eco feels solid as rest of the lineup and its cabin is quieter and more peaceful than the others in the Elantra lineup. Additional muffling effect is produced by the turbocharger.

The Hyundai Eco has a cabin that enjoys a similar composure while the steering is also similar in feel and look. Moreover, the Eco enjoys having an identical handsome styling. However, its grille looks quite different and might have been inspired from some other carmaker.

However, even if some people may mistake an Eco for a Subaru or a Ford, one thing is quite certain. It can never be confused with the earlier version of an Elantra. The version for model-year 2017 promises to be high on performance and comfort.

The 40 MPG 2017 Hyundai Elantra

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

Hyundai Elantra

When the Dieselgate scandal of the Volkswagen created havoc for the automaker globally, one company that highly benefitted from it is none other than the Hyundai.

In fact, the scandal of VW made many people forget that Kia and Hyundai exaggerated 1.2 million vehicles’ economy that cost its rivals about a hundred million US dollars in the form of penalties, as well as, also saw the forfeiture of about two hundred million US dollars in credits for greenhouse-gas-emission.

The after-effects were such that the dealers had to provide cash reimbursements annually to the owners of its affected vehicles. However, all that changed for the better a Hyundai claimed that its new Elantra offers a mileage of 28 miles per gallon on the highways.

So, Hyundai is back with a bang as it introduces the all-new Elantra for the model year 2017. It also introduces a fresh model called the Eco that claims to provide a mileage of 40 miles per gallon on highways as per the EPA ratings.

The Eco is powered by an additional torque of 24 pound-feet. It is equipped with a 4-cylinder and 1.4 liter turbocharged engine.  It produces a horsepower of 128. The torque enables the Eco to be faster by half a second to 60 miles per hour as compared to the other variants of Elantras.
