Our CardinaleWay Hyundai Service Team Recommends This Book – Your Vehicle’s Owner’s Manual

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Car Owner's Manual

Have you ever actually looked at your Hyundai’s Owner’s Manual tucked away in your glove box?  At #CardinaleWayHyundai in Corona, our Service Technicians highly recommend reading this very important manual. It’s filled with informative details about how your vehicle operates, important safety information and routine maintenance recommendations.

Everything You Want to Know About Your Hyundai

Whether you just earned your license or have been driving for years, knowing the details of how your vehicle operates is important. Today’s newer vehicles have so much new technology that is designed to keep you safe and your eyes on the road.  If you know how to operate all the bells and whistles it will make your life easier! Your Owner’s Manual contains descriptions, illustrations and detailed instructions on every aspect of your vehicle. For example, if you get a flat tire, you’ll find step by step instructions to help you change it efficiently and safely.

Read It Before You Need It

Rather than waiting until you have engine problems or a breakdown, it’s wise to review your Owner’s Manual when you buy your vehicle. With one quick review, you’ll know when you need to perform routine and preventative maintenance, so your car will keep running smoothly and efficiently. It’s also smart to learn what your warranty covers so you can budget accordingly. At the very least, become familiar with all the warning lights, so if one illuminates, you know what action to take and when.

Bring Your Vehicle to CardinaleWay Hyundai In Corona

If you can’t find your Owner’s Manual or you don’t understand something you’ve read, no worries. The #CardinaleWayHyundaiService technicians can explain how your vehicle operates and provide any necessary service it needs. We can probably order a replacement Owner’s Manual for you, as well.

We’re a premier Hyundai dealer California and are committed to providing the best service to our customers.  Whether you’re looking for a new, used or certified preowned Hyundai, or even need an oil change Corona CA, we’re here for you!  You can check out our entire inventory online at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com

When Does Your Hyundai Need a Tune-Up?

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Engine Maintenance

How long has it been since your Hyundai has a tune-up?  If you can’t remember the last time you had one done, it’s time to make an appointment at CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona. With summer road trips ahead and more excursions in lovely weather, you want to make sure you don’t have any issues while you’re on the road.  Here is a list of potential issues you may be experiencing, if you haven’t had a tune-up lately.
Common Performance Issues

  • Is it hard to start your vehicle? This is one of the most common troubles due to neglected vehicle maintenance. If your starter cranks the engine, the electrical system is probably fine. The problem could your Hyundai’s starting sensor or choke.
  • Is your engine knocking? This can be caused by using inferior fuel, but can be a sign that your engine needs attention. Many cars have built-in knock sensors to correct minor problems, but larger issues that could result in engine damage.
  • Does your engine run rough? This is usually a sign that there’s an issue with the fuel or ignition system, or a valve or piston isn’t working properly. Let your technician know when you hear it, whether it’s while it’s idling, during acceleration or at all speeds.
  • Are you getting poor gas mileage? Keep track of your mileage, and if you notice a drop in gas mileage, you might have under-inflated tires, an engine running too cold, a transmission malfunction, dragging brakes or misaligned wheels.
  • Does your engine stall? This can be caused by incorrect idle speed, incorrect adjustments, sensor or switch, dirty fuel system parts, worn spark plugs or other engine deficiencies.
  • Does your car keep chugging after you turn off the engine? This can be caused by inferior gasoline, high idle speed or carbon in the combustion chamber.
  • Does your vehicle lose power? This can be caused by a dirty fuel filter.

 

Don’t Ignore Small Warning Signs!
The expert service technicians at #CardinaleWayHyundai encourage you to take preventative measures before our vehicle has serious problems. We are a premier Hyundai dealer California.  If you need service for your Hyundai Riverside CA, make an appointment online at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com.  We want to be your dealership!

Hyundai Santa Fe: Let’s Go Have Some Fun

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Hyundai Santa Fe

The Hyundai Santa Fe was freshened up in 2017, making it an even more attractive option in the SUV segment.  It’s a roomy and very comfortable SUV that’s ideal for family duty—and fun to drive, as well.  At CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona, we love the Santa Fe and invite you to come in for a test drive.

 

The Santa Fe has a 3.3-litre V6 that’s mated to a responsive and smoothly six-speed automatic. You get 290 horsepower, great handling, a quiet ride and a respectable 20 mpg overall, according to tests by Consumer Reports.

It outperforms both the Toyota Highlander and the Honda Pilot!  There’s plenty of space and functionality, and the base models deliver strong value.  Plus, there are lots of great options and advanced safety features available, like a multiview camera, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detections and lane-departure warning. You can also choose a standard pre-wired trailer-prep package delivering 5,000 pound towing capacity—great for trailers, boats and other toys.

 

Drive Mode Select

Every driver is different.  Each has a different take on how they want their steering to feel.  Hyundai gives you that flexibility, with Drive Mode Select.  It adjust both the throttle response and steering effort to match your driving style.  Choose from Eco, Normal or Sport, just with the touch of a button.

 

Active Cornering Control/All Wheel Drive

This gives you improved traction and great cornering capability in turns.  It transfers engine torque to the rear wheels and applies brake force to the inside rear wheel.  You get improved cornering performance and all-weather capability.

 

Come See Us At CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona

A Return of The Drive-In

Monday, April 24th, 2017

Drive In Movie near me

Back in the day, a favorite date night was going to the drive-in movie.  However, many people have never even been to a drive-in, because they simply vanished from the American landscape.   At CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona, CA, we are excited to tell you the good old days at the Drive-In are making a comeback.  If you’ve never been to a drive-in movie, now you can.  Many former drive-ins are being restored and reopened by a new generation of Drive-In theatre fans.  The good news is, there are nine drive-ins operating within 30 miles of Corona, including the Van Buren Cinema 3 Drive-In in Arlington, the Mission Tiki Drive in Montclair and the Rubidoux Tri-Plex Drive-In in West Riverside.

 

No other institution says “Americana” quite like the Drive-In Theatre.  The world’s first Drive-In opened in Camden, New Jersey in 1933, and you paid 25 cents per car for admission. It  accommodated 336 cars and sound was provided by three central speakers.

 

The 1950s were the hey day for the Drive-In. They held 60-4,000 cars! Drive-in theatre numbers peaked in 1958 with 4,063 in operation.  By the early 1960s a decline in popularity began and continued.  By 1987, only 999 were operating and most went out of business in the early 1990s. By then, the Drive-in was becoming a modern day dinosaur.  Many blame the decline on television, cable,VCRs and Daylight Savings Time (late summer night starts hurt weekday attendance).  Rising land costs made it much more profitable for theater owners to sell their land to developers.

 

Drive In To CardinaleWay Hyundai

At #CardinaleWayHyundai in Corona, we are a star Hyundai dealer California.  Whether you need an oil change Corona CA or are looking for a new or certified preowned Hyundai, we’re here to help.  You can make a service appointment or view our entire inventory online at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com.

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Hyundai Accent

Want to drive a car that’s as likeable as is it affordable?  Look no further than the Hyundai Accent Sports Manual. With just one look, it’s easy to appreciate the utter honesty of this subcompact from Hyundai.  It’s a direct descendant of the Hyundai Excel, but offers so, so  much more.  It’s 2,500 pounds of cute with a 1.6 litre four-cylinder engine that produces 137 horsepower.  At the higher reaches of its rev range it gets 123 lb-ft of torque. It outperforms the competition, performing better than the Toyota Yaris, Nissan Versa and Ford Fiesta.  You get 0-60 mph in 8.6 seconds and 27/36 city/highway mpg.

With the Sport edition you get larger, machine-turned 16-inch aluminum wheels wearing 195/50R-16 tires.  You get sport-tuned steering that’s precise and delightful.  It’s easy to use one-finger steering for parking lot maneuvers and easy traffic negotiation.  The driver’s seat is comfy and upholstered in cloth.  The dashboard is pleasantly designed, offering dressy blue night time illumination. The front and side sightlines are excellent.

The Accent gives you honest, roomy basic transportation without punishing you for having a small budget.  it’s sporty, fun to drive and comfortable—and the price tag is super affordable.

Ioniq Blue: The Most Fuel Efficient Car in America

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

If you think the Toyota Prius has the best EPA-est among hybrids, think again.  The Hyundai Ioniq Blue leaves the Prius in the dust, earning an impressive 59/57/58 Hwy/City/Combined MPG. Its high capacity lithium-ion polymer battery pack is nothing short of a technological marvel.  But you don’t have to take our word for it.  Hyundai offers an exclusive lifetime Hybrid/Electric Battery warranty that demonstrates our absolute commitment to earning your confidence. You also get America’s best warranty with a #Hyundai—you get a 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty that includes five years of 24/7 Roadside Assistance.

 

You Get Power Plus

You love hybrid power, plus a six speed Dual Clutch Transmission.  It has an efficient and balanced powertrain with an eager 1.6 liter gasoline engine that works in concert with a 32kW electric motor.  It delivers a 139 combined horsepower!  You’ll love how nimble it is as it moves along through traffic and cruises down the highway.

 

Style and Luxury

You’ll love the driver’s display.  It has a brilliant changing color palette and dynamic graphics that monitor vehicle performance as you use different settings of Drive Mode Select.  You’ll also like the looks of the D-Cut Steering Wheel, which was first used in high performance race cars.  You’ll have an added sense of confidence and control when you grip the thickly padded D-Cut steering wheel.

 

It’s So Aerodynamic

The Ioniq Hybrid has a unique low-air resistance design. You get an Active Air Flap that dynamically adjusts to driving conditions.  It opens to allow greater airflow for engine cooling in stop-and-go traffic, and then closes for better aerodynamics at sustained cruising speeds.  Wheel Air Curtains direct air over and around the front wheels and tires and the Underbody Cover helps smooth out airflow under the vehicle.

 

Come in For a Test Drive at CardinaleWay Hyundai

C’mon.  You know you’re curious about the Ioniq Blue.  Why not take one for a test drive?  You can view our entire inventory of new, used and certified preowned Hyundais online at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com.  If you’re looking for the best Hyundai California, look no further than our Hyundai Riverside CA dealership at 2525 Wardlow Street in Corona, CA.

CardinaleWay Hyundai Talks About Shocks & Struts

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

 How Shock Absorbers Work

When it comes to control and handling for your car, truck, SUV or crossover, nothing’s more important than your shock absorbers and struts. You need them in perfect working order so you can hold the tires to the road. They can also keep your vehicle from bottoming out when you hit a pothole or uneven road surfaces. To keep your shocks and struts in top condition, we recommend you include a shock and strut check in your regular vehicle maintenance schedule. Our certified technicians at #CardinaleWayHyundai  in Corona CA can do an inspection for you.

 

How Shock Absorbers Work
Shock absorbers provide resistance by forcing hydraulic fluid through valves in the piston as it moves up and down. Resistance to the vehicle’s movement occurs because this fluid – oil – can’t be compressed.  Only a certain amount of the fluid can be forced through the valves.

 

When Shocks and Struts Need Replacement
Under normal conditions, your shock absorbers and struts will wear out gradually.  Because shocks operate in a pretty hostile under-vehicle environment, gravel, debris and snow/ice can affect their performance. If you spend most of your time driving on straight smooth city roads, your shocks are likely to last much longer than if you’re driving on winding, muddy gravel roads. It’s easy for flying gravel to nick or damage the piston rod and let grit and dirt damage the piston seal.

 

Signs of Wear
How do you know if your shocks and struts are wearing out?  Watch for the signs.  Does your car bounce three or more times when you go over a railroad crossing? Does your Hyundai rock back and forth after a sudden stop? Does it drift to the left or right when you apply the brakes firmly at high speed? Does it rock or sway from side to side when you change lanes quickly?  These signs can indicate that you need to bring your vehicle in for service. Our CardinaleWay Hyundai certified technicians can take care of your vehicle.

 

Bring Your Hyundai to CardinaleWay Hyundai

Come to CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona, where our certified technicians can take care of all your maintenance needs. While you’re here, you can also check out the latest models like the Tucson, Accent, Azera, Elantra and Santa Fe. You’re sure to find something that will fit your lifestyle and budget. Come for a test drive! We are a premiere Hyundai dealer California.  If you are looking for an oil change Corona CA or want to have your shocks and struts checked, you can make a service appointment online at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com.

It’s ideal for playdates and parties, and your kids won’t be overwhelmed by older children. There’s free coffee for parents and caregivers, too!

Wake Up Before You Go Go

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

OK, we know, our play on the George Michael song is a bit corny but we just had to.  On a serious note, have you ever felt drowsy behind the wheel?  The term for this is referred to as microsleep.  It’s that brief state of drowsy unconsciousness that can happen even with your eyes wide open.  Pretty scary.  At CardinaleWay Hyundai, your Hyundai California dealer of choice, we want to tell you about technology designed to keep you awake and safe when driving.

 

Drowsiness detection systems are not totally new.  Some automakers and tech companies are ahead of the curve. For instance, some can monitor a vehicle’s movements to detect a sleepy driver. Upon detection, drivers are warned with a sound and coffee cup graphic.  Systems on the horizon, which we will note in the next few paragraphs, aspire to much more than a beep and coffee cup image.

 

Bosch is developing a camera-based technology that will monitor eye and head movements, body posture, heart rate and body temperature.  Checking body temperature and how the driver is dressed, the system will be able to customize the interior temperature for each driver to keep them alert.

 

Plessey Semiconductors has developed sensors, to be placed in a seat that monitor heart rate changes.  The technology would indicate when breathing patterns begin to replicate that of someone who is sleeping, giving a warning before someone actually feels tired and dozes off.

 

CardinaleWay Hyundai Has Their Eyes Wide Open

At #CardinaleWayHyundai, we are paying very close attention to what you want and what you need.  We are the Hyundai dealer California that the others want to grow up to be.  Come see us or visit us online at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com and see why.

Can’t Remember? There Are Apps For That

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Keeping up with most anything that does not happen daily or weekly is a challenge.  And that goes for car maintenance.  When did you change your oil last, rotate those tires and the list goes on.  As your preferred Hyundai California dealership, CardinaleWay Hyundai, we thought we’d clue you in on some great apps that will help you keep up with all of your auto maintenance.  Take a look at these apps:

The app can display up to five vehicles’ recommended maintenance schedules and provide reminders to your smartphone for maintenance checkups.  It saves service history, issues safety recall notices and reminds you of renewal for your vehicle registration.  It’s good for both iOS and Androids.

 

BitKar can log maintenance and mileage, diagnose problems, recommend repairs  and help find an auto mechanic or parts store by adding a VIN number, license plate number and other info.  Be sure to check to see if it’s available in your area.  It’s available on iOS and it’s free!

 

For just $2.99, iOS users can get Car Care that sends reminders to your Smartphone for oil changes, tire rotation and other routine auto maintenance.  After you fill-up, it can figure out your gas mileage too.
