Hyundai Has Greatest Improvement

Every year, J.D. Power and Associates conduct a U.S. Sales Satisfaction Index Study (SSI). In the 2010 study, Hyundai has shown significant improvement in its position. Overall, Hyundai ranked number seven. Hyundai has also been the company with the greatest improvement out of all the mass market brands from the year 2009. It moved from number sixteen in 2009 to number seven in 2010.

What is the SSI study? It is a comprehensive analysis of the experience of purchasing a new vehicle. The overall customer satisfaction is measured in four factors. These four factors are working out the deal, delivery process, salesperson, and the dealership facility. The study this year found that the way customers are treated by the dealership was more important than the actual price of the transaction. 

While Hyundai ranked seventh in the Initial Quality Study, it also ranked 11 in the Vehicle Dependability Study. This plays Hyundai four ranks higher than industry average and three over its 2009 position.

2011 Honda Accord Sedan Earns 5 Star Safety Rating

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has redone the way they test vehicles. The tests are more stringent and use a new concept called the Overall Vehicle Score, part of the federal government's New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). 2011 models are the first to be put through the tests, and it is meant to be a help to new car shoppers. The Overall Vehicle Score combines the results from frontal crash test, rollover-resistance tests, and side crash tests into a single rating, from one to five stars. 

For the first time, crash test dummies are both male and female. Frontal crash safety tests now use a small female dummy in the front passenger seat and a male as normal in the driver's seat. Side-crash tests include the side-barrier test that has been used previously where a moving barrier hits a still car at an angle. Added to that is the new side-pole test where a moving vehicle hits a stationary pole. Again, for the first time female dummies are used and the dummy is in the back of the vehicle. 

The 2011 Honda Accord Sedan has earned a 5 star rating as the Overall Vehicle Score, the best score a vehicle can possibly achieve. The Accord is one of just six vehicles to achieve the score, and the first to get five stars in all categories - rollover, side crash, and frontal crash.

All-new Honda Electric Vehicle Concept Debut

Everyone is buzzing about electric vehicles. If you don't know, an electric vehicle is exactly what it sounds like. These vehicles run on electricity. Charging stations allow people on the go to charge up the battery so that they can keep going. You can also plug in your vehicle at home, charging it in your garage while you sleep. These vehicles are better for the environment because they do not put off fumes like gasoline powered vehicles do, and they also put off less noise pollution. 

Honda is very responsible where the environment is concerned, and the company has worked hard to try and not only prove they are environmentally responsible, but that they also are leaders in green technology. 

An all-new electric vehicle concept will be unveiled at the 2010 Los Angeles auto show on November 17. The unveiling is scheduled to take place at 1:20 PM PST. President and CEO of Honda Motor Co., Ltd Takanobu Ito and American Honda Motor Co., Inc, executive vice president John Mendel will be the keynote presenters. 

If you can't attend in person, you can watch via webcast.

2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Live in the city, but want a great vehicle that will give you the feeling of looking down from on high without worrying about fancy off-road features? Then you need to take a look at the 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Really, this vehicle is for anyone who wants a great compact crossover at a great price but who don't plan to do any off-roading. The 2011 Outlander Sport will be making its U.S. debut in New York and amazingly, the starting price is less than $20,000. While it's not along the same lines as the Honda CR-V or the Ford Escape, it is a good lancer alternative if you want something that looks a bit more tough.

If you like to sit high above the traffic, you'll love that the Outlander Sport is about five inches higher than the Lancer at the visual reference point. You'll also love the differences. The Outlander Sport offers a panoramic sunroof, 710 watt nine speaker sound system, navigation system with traffic updates and 40 GB hard drive, super wide rang HID headlamps (which emit 35% more light than regular HIDs) and FAST key passive entry system. 

You can get all wheel drive as an option. For front drive models, expected highway mileage is 31 mpg. Batteries are charged in this amazing crossover by the friction energy created during breaking. This vehicle will be near the top of its class in fuel efficiency, perfect for those who have to watch their wallet at the pump. It comes with a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine that gets 148 horsepower. This should be a great vehicle for many people and a lot of fun to drive.

Honda Manufacturing Plant in Indiana Goes Green

Located in Greensburg, Indiana, Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC (HMIN) got the LEED Green Building Certification for the Welcome Center. This is the ninth of Honda's North American facilities to receive LEED certification since the year 2008. 

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a rating system for various types of buildings. It is awarded by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). It is a recognition of green building practice and performance globally. Located in Decatur County, HMIN is the first company to receive this recognition. 

There are six categories that the Welcome Center was evaluated in. The categories are Water Efficiency, Innovative Design, Sustainable Site, Energy & Atmosphere, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Materials & Resources. The Welcome Center includes shower facilities and bicycle storage for associates, lumber from sustainable forests, and 100 percent green power was purchased. There is also fuel-efficient vehicle parking in the lot for visitors and campus-wide recycling. 

The plant was built two years ago with the environment in mind. There are seven lakes on the campus, as well as two water quality ponds, and the facility is a zero-waste facility. Every bit of waste the facility makes is either reused or recycled; nothing goes to the landfill. Trees and earthen enhancements provide a natural buffer between the plant and those in the Greensburg area.

U.S. Hyundai Sales Up

Hyundai is doing quite well in the United States. The automotive company recently announced that it has seen a 38% increase in October 2010. The high demand for the Tucson sport utility vehicle and the Sonata sedan has led Hyundai to record sales. 

Last month, Hyundai - which is South Korea's largest automotive company - sold a record 42,656 cars and light trucks this past month. That is up from a year ago, where the company sold 31,005 vehicles. In the month of October, the deliveries that Hyundai made to the United States were more than all of the deliveries made in 2009. 

The Hyundai Sonata, which has been upgraded and revamped, outsold both the Altima made by Nissan and Ford's Fusion last month. Hyundai's increase in the use of leases seems to be what is having the effect of increasing their sales. October saw a 17.2 percent increase in the sale of new cars from leasing.

Hyundai in Top Ten of Brand Keys 2010 List


Hyundai has surpassed other automakers by leaps and bounds in many ways - not least in customer loyalty. 

Hyundai has continued to gain momentum and has become a key player in the automotive industry. Hyundai has worked hard to find ways to please customers, and even with the difficult economy and loss of consumer confidence in many products, Hyundai has won the hearts and loyalty of customers all over the country. 

Brand Keys is a New York based brand that measures customer loyalty and engagement. They conduct a survey every year called the Customer Loyalty Leaders list. Hyundai was one of two car brands that made the top 50. It is the highest ranking in the automotive category on this year's report, coming in at number 6. 

This is a huge achievement for Hyundai. In 2008, the company was at 295th place. It moved up in 2009 to number 24, and now is number 6. This is due to how much people love the new designs of the Tucson and Sonata cars as well as Hyundai's excellent guarantee and consumer protection plan.
