Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned Program Bests the Rest

When customers purchase or lease a new Hyundai vehicle at our dealership in Chicago, IL, they are also receiving at least fifteen years of worry-free driving thanks to the auto brand’s highly praised warranty program. In fact, it is recognized as “America’s Best Warranty.”

But the automaker doesn’t stop there. It takes care of those behind the wheel of a used Hyundai as well, with its equally acclaimed Certified Pre-Owned Program.

It, too, has been named America’s Best and helped Hyundai earn the “Best Popular Brand” title at this year’s Certified Pre-Owned Car Awards held by IntelliChoice.

“New car buyers know that Hyundai offers the best overall value in the industry with a tremendous quality lineup and ‘America’s Best Warranty,'” begins Dave Zuchowski, the executive vice president of Sales for Hyundai Motor America.1

“At Hyundai, we make every effort to ensure our vehicles surpass customer expectations and this philosophy extends to pre-owned models,” Zuchowski continues. “This award is proof that our customers shop with confidence knowing we offer the most competitive warranty and Certified Pre-Owned program in the industry.”2

Some of the Hyundai program’s more notable perks include 10 years of 100,000 miles of powertrain warranty, 10 years and unlimited mileage of roadside assistance, rental car reimbursement for covered repairs, and CARFAX vehicle history reports.

Whether you opt for a new Hyundai or a used one, you can feel rest assured that your vehicle is providing the utmost in value and reliability. Ask our team of experts here at Rogers Auto Group for more information.

Hyundai Incorporates Android-Based Navigation System for All New Models

A recent trend has had automakers from all over the world rushing to install the latest and greatest technologies in their new vehicles, and South Korean automaker Hyundai and its sister brand Kia are no exception. Recently, the two brands announced to the public that will be the first auto brand in the world to use and feature an Android-based navigation system in all of their new upcoming vehicles.

The newly developed systems are actually already available for this and ready to be installed, but it is not precisely clear as to when they will roll out.  If they should not be integrated by the end of this year, one should expect them to arrive in models early next year.   Using Android as the base operating system is sure to be unique as many automakers’ technologies revolve around  separate systems like Apple’s iOS systems using the moniker known as Siri Eyes Free, with Siri being Apples patented voice control.

What is nice about the new Android based system is that it would be available as both an add-on and a pre-installed feature.  Known as Android AVN (audio video navigation) it will allow drivers and passenger to connect their Android phones to hook up to their favorite apps like those for music and control some of the cars systems remotely via Wi-Fi.

Though the details are hazy at the moment, the system is expected  to have its own app store, but no one is really sure if it will be their own system  or if it will connect with Google Play. Rumors have it pegged that first installed systems could be seen in the next Hyundai Genesis and Kia Soul later this year.

For more information about the Android-based  media system as it becomes available, be sure to stay tuned here with our Rogers Auto Group blog, and don’t hesitate to swing by our showroom in Chicago, IL for a look at our excellent selection of new and used cars in the Chicago area!
