Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/

Link to Press Release

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai Motor America

today announced sales of 40,703 for the month of July, a 6.5 percent

decrease over the same period last year.

"Although Accent and Elantra sales continued their upward trend with

increases of 96 percent and 31 percent respectively over the same period

last year, we experienced an overall slow down for the month of July," said

Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America's vice president of national sales.

"We are encouraged going forward, however, due to the fact we have recently

opened a new four-cylinder engine plant in Montgomery, Alabama, allowing us

to shift our engine mix for future product. We also expect greater

availability of our more-fuel efficient vehicles in the months to come and

the demand for our new rear-wheel drive Genesis to continue to rise."

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 power train 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.

Hyundai Motor America, headquartered in Fountain Valley, Calif., is a

subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Co. of Korea. Hyundai vehicles are distributed

throughout the United States by Hyundai Motor America and are sold and

serviced through almost 800 dealerships nationwide.
