Driving 1 Million Miles: Anything’s Possible With Hyundai

Maybe you think you spend a lot of time behind the wheel. You probably can’t compare to Kansas delivery driver Farrah Haines, who recently notched a cool 1 million miles on the original drivetrain of her 2013 Hyundai Elantra.

“Reaching one million miles with the original powertrain in just five years is an extremely rare and incredible achievement,” explained Hyundai Motor America’s CMO, Dean Evans.

Not many drivers put the kind of stress on their vehicles that Haines, who delivers auto parts around the Midwest, does. In fact, Consumer Reports has a popular article on how to maintain your car so it will run reliably to 200,000 miles — just one-fifth of the distance that Haines coaxed out of her trusty Elantra.

“My Hyundai has been a great car to me,” Haines said. “Over the years I have been beyond pleased at my car’s performance, a quality that is inherent to the Hyundai brand.”

2018 NAIAS: Hyundai Unveils the All-New Veloster

Although the 2018 Detroit Auto Show is over, people are still talking about Hyundai unveiling their all-new 2019 Veloster, which is scheduled to arrive at our Hyundai dealership later this spring. (That’s just weeks away!)

The Veloster, which first showed up on American roads in the fall of 2011, was always a unique phenomenon — a sharp-looking sports car with a funky-cool, asymmetrical look thanks to one extra-large door on the driver’s side. It was this feature that ensured that the Veloster would never be confused with anything else on the road.

As the years have passed, the Veloster has evolved, but the most radical changes to the little devil seem to come in 2019, nearly 8 years later. Here’s what the upcoming new Veloster is planning on bringing to the market.
