Sept. 2006 Sales: Hyundai Motor America

Posted Image

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumer demand

continues to grow for Hyundai Motor America's all-new Santa Fe. The new

Santa Fe continues to post gains with sales of 3,740 in September, a 53

percent increase over last month. The Hyundai Azera also performed well, up

62 percent compared with September 2005.

September sales totaled 33,384, down 13 percent compared with September

2005 due to limited availability of all-new Accents and Elantras. Plant

slowdowns this summer in Korea and strong worldwide demand for these

vehicles contributed to this situation.

"The national advertising campaign for the all-new Santa Fe is raising

awareness and increasing dealer traffic and our retail sales were very

strong," said Mark Barnes, vice president, National Sales, Hyundai Motor

America. "Inventory shortages of the all-new Accent three-door and lack of

availability of the all-new Elantra certainly depressed sales this month.

We just announced pricing for the all-new Elantra and we are currently

making first allocations to dealers as we speak."

All Hyundai vehicles sold in the U.S. are covered by The Hyundai

Advantage, America's Best Warranty. Hyundai buyers are protected by a

10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile

bumper-to-bumper warranty, a 7-year/unlimited-mile anti-perforation

warranty and 5-year/unlimited-mile roadside assistance protection.

I'm sick and tired of this PR bull from all of these companies. Your sales were down and that's that. Don't give me this crap about not having any cars on the lot to sell because of plant slow downs.

no doubt. hyundai's big models a year old or older are all down. toyota must be partially responsible. we must be becoming a toyota nation or the car salesman are blowing people as they walk in the door.

Seriously, sonata, accent, tucson, all their 'new' models, down.

maybe we ought to be called KOOL-AID nation.
