Road Tripping With Elders

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

At our Hyundai California dealer, Hyundai of Corona, we love to hit the open road.  Everyone gives you tips for tripping with the kiddos but what about when grandma and grandpa are along for the ride?  We thought you would find these tips of use should you find yourself going on a road trip with elders family members.

Consult with a Doctor for Approval To Travel

This is THE most important step to take prior to taking off with an elderly passenger onboard.  Make sure the destination is appropriate given any limitations your older rider may have.

Research Medical Facilities In Advance

Make sure you know where the nearest hospitals and care centers are should an emergency arise.

Prepare Documentation and Identification

Ensure travel documentation is in order: a passport or driver’s license, medical documentation like Medicare and insurance cards (and photocopies) and prescriptions or physician’s statements. Consider wearable identification for loved ones who are living with dementia.

Maintain a Predictable Daily Routine And Schedule

A predictable schedule is critical to reducing stress and anxiety in an elder.  If they have Alzheimer’s this is especially important.  Keep mealtimes, medication schedules and rest times consistent. This will lower the risk of agitation.  Travel when they are most likely to do well. That way everyone will have a great experience.

Hyundai Riverside CA Wants Everyone To Enjoy The Ride

We know travelling with your older family members can be challenging but also rewarding.  At Hyundai of Corona, we understand that a comfortable ride is very important. If you need additional accessories to outfit your car, check out our genuine  Hyundai dealer auto parts.  Don’t forget to stop in for your oil change Corona CA before your trip.

Keeping Your Vehicle in Tip Top Shape

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

Why is it important to go to your Hyundai dealer California for preventative maintenance in Corona, CA? If you rely on your vehicle as most people do, here are a few basic maintenance and cleaning tips to keep your automobile in roadworthy shape. Come see us at CardinaleWay Hyundai.

Preventive Maintenance is a Smart Investment

A trained mechanic with the qualifications and equipment to perform the job correctly should conduct most of the maintenance on your vehicle. It’s helpful if you also pay attention to what’s going on under the hood. The owner’s manual for your Hyundai will provide you with a maintenance schedule for your specific make and model. Additionally, you can do the following simple checks and routine procedures to help prevent problems while at the same time, extend the life of your vehicle.


What You Should Check

It’s recommended that you change the oil and oil filter regularly.  Check the owner’s manual for your vehicle, it will specify exactly how often you should do this.  A good recommendation is to change them every 3,000 to 4,000 miles. If you change the oil and filter yourself, check your local guidelines and dispose of the used oil properly.


Be sure to check all the fluids in your #Hyundai on a regular basis.  Your fluids include brake,  transmission, power steering, transaxle, antifreeze and windshield washer fluids. Your owner’s manual will tell you how to check these fluids.


Check the air pressure level in all four tires at least once a month. Your owner’s manual will specify the ideal air pressure for your specific make of tires.


Don’t forget to regularly monitor and check to see that all your lights work.  This includes headlights, brake lights, turn signals and your tail lights.

Replace the windshield wiper blades periodically.  A good way to determine when to replace them are if your wiper blades begin to streak, or if they are cracked or torn.  These are indicators that they should be replaced.


Next, don’t forget to inspect your engine belts. Belts should not have missing segments or cracks.

Last, but not least, you should regularly check the air filter.  The filter should be clean, not clogged or damaged.

Check Out CardinaleWay Hyundai

We hope you’ll come see us at CardinaleWay Hyundai for your next oil change Corona CA.  Our factory-trained, qualified service technicians can keep your Hyundai running smoothly and safely year after year. Don’t delay, make your service appointment at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com.

Some Noises Shouldn’t Be Ignored

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

Have you ever been driving down the street and you hear a noise like a coin in a clothes dryer coming from your wheels? It could be a loose lug nut. Definitely something to get checked out at CardinaleWay Hyundai of Corona CA, a Hyundai dealer California. Stop in and let our expert Service department technicians take a look. There are other noises you should be concerned about if you hear, as well. Some of them are below.

Squealing Brakes

If this is the sound you hear then it could be your brake pads. The sound is actually the sound of metal on metal and should be looked at immediately for signs of wear on your brake pads or shoes.

Popping Sound When You Turn

If you have front-wheel-drive, this sound indicates a possible #ConstantVelocity (CV) joint issue on your front axle. It could be that one or both CVs need to be replaced. But this sound should be investigated quickly.

Singing

A singing sound is an easy one to identify. It is probably your bearings. These tiny metal balls help parts rotate smoothly. It sounds complicated, but not really. If you have front-wheel-drive and the sound is different in each direction you turn, then it’s likely your front-wheel-drive bearings. But, if you hear a howling noise that gradually gets louder, then that signals rear-wheel bearings. If you have a whining sound, and it gets louder when you accelerate it’s probably your differential. This little part allows you wheels to spin at different rates and could be leaking fluid. This could lead to a larger problem and should be fixed immediately.

Come to CardinaleWay For Servicing

If you hear any of these sounds or squealing, squeaking or clunking you should have your vehicle serviced. You can come to our superior Service department for everything from an oil change Corona CA to valves, connecting rods or pistons. We also do warranty checkups and repairs when needed. From the all electric Ionic and Sonata to the Santa Fe Sport we’ve got you covered. Visit our website: www.CardinaleWayHyundai.com.

99 Miles Per Gallon: Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

If you haven’t driven a Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, come test drive the 2017 Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid at #CardinaleWayHyundai of Corona California. In practice, as the name suggests, the Sonata plugs into an electrical outlet or battery charging station, but the lithium-ion battery pack is five times larger than the one in our regular Sonata Hybrid. This gives the Sonata Plug-in Hybrid a far-reaching range of 99 miles per gallon equivalent when you consider the solid 39 mpg in regular traditional hybrid mode combined with the added range when fully charged.

Overall Solid Pick

The Sonata’s Hybrid engine makes it a strong choice. The combination of the Hybrid’s plug-in capability and its traditional internal combustion engine give it unparalleled worry-free driving. No more anxiety about the range of an all electric car because when the battery is depleted the gas engine goes online. And, you can bring your Sonata Hybrid in for a regular oil change Corona CA.

Comfortable And Quiet

The Sonata Plug-in Hybrid has a six-speed automatic transmission that we like because it provides a more traditional feeling when shifting. It accelerates to 60 mph in 7.9 seconds which is about average in the class, but, oh, what a quiet ride even at highway speeds. The ride is smooth on all road types and will get you to your destination without wearing you out.

Service Is Our Business

We are a premier Hyundai Riverside CA dealer with an elite sales and finance team to offer you our exciting 2017 new and certified Pre-owned vehicles. We are experts in the field, we know our product and we know you are looking for the best driving experience with the least amount of hassle. Come in today, or first visit us online at www.CardinaleWayHyundai.com.

Is There An Alternative To Used Cars?

Monday, June 12th, 2017

No one wants a used car these days. Why? Because you don’t know the history of the car, you don’t know why someone is getting rid of the vehicle and you certainly don’t have any assurance that it won’t break down the minute the title transfers. That’s why more and more of our customers at CardinaleWay Hyundai of Corona CA, a Hyundai dealer California, are asking us about our award-winning program for #CertifiedPreOwned vehicles, or CPO.

Are All CPO Programs Alike?

We think we have the best CPO program in the industry and the experts agree. According to Edmunds, a leading authority in the vehicle industry, Hyundai is their favorite CPO program.

To Make The Cut

Every used vehicle must qualify for certified pre-owned status first by being less than 5 years old. Then, the mileage must be under 60,000 miles. So far so easy, but then the vehicle is subject to a 150-point inspection by our skilled mechanic techs as specified by Hyundai Motor America.

Warranty

After the original 5-year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty expires, Hyundai kicks in an additional 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty.

Comparable programs give only 7-years of powertrain coverage from the original date of purchase. Your CPO vehicle comes with a Carfax history report so you have fewer worries about when the last oil change Corona CA was.

Extras

Hyundai has an exceptional program of extras to keep you on the road worry-free. We offer 10 years/unlimited miles roadside assistance, the deductible for warranty repairs is only $50 and all of this is transferrable to a private-party buyer should you decide to resell to an individual. And, just to make your experience top-notch, Hyundai throws in a three-month subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio and rental car & trip interruption reimbursement

Your Hyundai Dealership

With perks like these it’s easy to see why you would buy a certified pre-owned Hyundai from CardinaleWay Hyundai of Riverside. So, stop in today or visit us on the web www.CardinaleWayHyundai.com and find out all you need to know about our CPO program.

Solutions to everyday car problems

Solutions to everyday car problems

Most of us have been there. On the side of the road, that is, because of a car breakdown. Three of the most common causes of summertime car problems are flat tires, overheating and dead batteries. The good news is all of these problems can be mostly prevented with proper car car. Our CardinaleWay Hyundai of Corona CA service technicians are here to help. Schedule an appointment today at www.CardinaleWayHyundai.com. Now let’s talk about how to help keep your car from spoiling the fun.

Dead Battery

A dead battery doesn’t just cause wintertime woes. In fact, a car battery can get nearly as stressed in summer as it can from cold because higher temperatures can cause battery fluid to evaporate.

Easy Prevention: Schedule an appointment with CardinaleWay Riverside CA to have one of our skilled mechanics check your battery, starter and alternator for early signs of low charge.

Flat Tire

The dreaded flat tire is a misfortune almost everyone has. You can safeguard against a flat tire, but prevention is a little tricky with all the summertime road construction and increased traffic. It’s recommended to learn how to change a tire. Learning can save you the expense of costly road assistance, or may even save you from being stranded.

Easy Prevention: Check your tire pressure every month. Also check the tread on your tires and look for uneven wear which is an early sign of a possible flat tire. Should you find that you do need to add air to the tires you’ll find the information sticker on the inside of the driver’s door to tell you the recommended p.s.i. (pounds per square inch).

Overheated Car

If your car gets low on coolant, your engine will start to overheat. Keep an eye on the temperature gauge and if you see the temperature rising stop at the nearest service center to take a look.

Easy Prevention: At the beginning of the summer season check your coolant levels in your radiator. If the liquid doesn’t reach to the FULL line, add a mix of 50% coolant and 50% water to the reservoir. And check your oil to see if it’s time for an oil change Corona CA.  at #CardinaleWay Hyundai of Corona, we want to be your dealership!

A Growing Niche In Car Repair? Yes!

Monday, May 29th, 2017

A great crew of mechanics is what it takes to make a dealership’s service department stand out, and that’s what we have at #CardinaleWayHyundai in Corona, a Hyundai dealer California. These talented, skilled mechanics are at our disposal to help keep your vehicle running smoothly.

But, haven’t you been asked frequently, “Do you know a good mechanic?” The reality is that mechanics are getting harder and harder to find. Why? Because today’s cars aren’t like the cars of yesteryear, and therein lies the niche opportunity for a future in car repair.

It’s a great out of the box idea for a woman or man ready to change or needing to change careers; or a graduating senior keen on college alternatives.

Current and future mechanics will more than likely use a laptop rather than a wrench to diagnose your ride. Unlike traditional mechanics who know their way around brakes, transmissions and engines, these newer vehicles take a different type of professional. Even for an oil change Corona CA, a quick look at the laptop comes first.

At CardinaleWay Hyundai The Future Is Now

At CardinaleWay Hyundai we employ this new breed of mechanic who understands the new repair software and is fluent in the technology of sensors, cameras and electronics. And, that is the point we are trying to make. We employ. We know from experience that the opportunity for growth in this field is unlimited.

If you’ve read this far we would say we have your interest. Don’t dismiss that. Certain trade associations could help you with scholarships they award every year for auto repair programs. And, many scholarships for women from associations like Women in Auto Care can be quite hefty.

After a two-year program you will have a degree and a mechanic’s license to begin your new career in auto repair. It’s up to you whether that career is a dealership, self-employment in a repair shop, teaching or even working for a parts manufacturer or distributor.

We hope you’ll come see us at CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona.  OUr factory-trained service technicians can keep your Hyundai running beautifully year after year, mile after mile. Make your service appointment at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com.
