How to Keep Your 2018 New Year Resolutions

New Year Resolutions
Making and keeping a New Year resolution isn’t easy. Here are a few ways to keep your 2018 New Year Resolutions from your friends at Tipton Hyundai.

Making a New Year resolution isn’t easy, and keeping it isn’t any easier. Fortunately, achieving your 2018 goal is possible if you take the right steps. Here are a few ways to keep your 2018 New Year Resolutions from your friends at Tipton Hyundai.

Start small

Launching a full scale assault on your resolution, whether you want to stop smoking or become more social, increases the odds of failure. Instead, create a concrete plan to achieve your New Year resolution. After all, you have all year. Start small and take each step slowly to push yourself across the finish line.

Talk to others

Whether your goal is to lose weight or kick a bad habit, one of the best ways to achieve your goal is to talk to others about it. Talk to family and friends about your resolution or join a support group, like a workout class. Doing so will encourage you to fully commit yourself to achieving your 2018 New Year resolution.

Ask for help

One thing many people don’t like to do is ask for help with their New Year resolution. There’s nothing wrong with asking for help now and then, and a major life change will likely require support from others. Feeling overwhelmed and stressed out by your 2018 New Year resolution will only increase the odds of failure. If you need help, ask a close friend or family member.

From all of us at Tipton Hyundai, we hope you have a productive and healthy start to the new year.

Tuesday Is Ladies Day at Tipton Hyundai

At Tipton Hyundai, we love to show our appreciation to our customers. That is why every Tuesday is Ladies Day at Tipton Hyundai.

Ladies Day Service Special

For just $29.95, our Hyundai Service Lane will give your car an oil and filter change, a multi-point inspection, a fluid top-off, and a thorough exterior wash. You can pick up your car knowing it’s been well-cared for, and you’ll feel like you’re stepping into a newer vehicle.

By getting regular oil changes, you can help prolong the life of your car. Your car’s oil helps keep everything cool and lubricated in the engine. It also helps clean out sludge and other particles from your engine. Clean oil can also maintain your car’s excellent fuel efficiency.

Your vehicle’s oil change needs depends on the model, so consult your owner’s manual for a more specific maintenance schedule. The industry standard for oil changes has long been every three months or 3,000 miles. However, your Hyundai may not need an oil change that often.

If your car is having problems, or if you’re just ready for your regular maintenance visit, schedule a Tuesday appointment at Tipton Hyundai to take advantage of our Ladies Day special.

Halloween Safety Tips

There’s nothing spookier than Beggar’s Night. If your kids are going out to trick or treat this year, use these Halloween safety tips from Tipton Hyundai to keep everyone safe and comfortable.

Halloween safety

Costume Hacks

Before the big night, check everyone’s costumes for length. If a costume hangs below the ankles, consider hemming it to avoid potential tripping. Also make sure your children’s costumes are accompanied by comfortable shoes – no parent wants to carry their kid from house to house for trick-or-treat.

Skip the Mask

Masks can be uncomfortable or even make it difficult for your child to breathe after a period of time. Opt for safe face paint instead, or cut a mask to make sure that it leaves plenty of room for the mouth and nose – just make sure the mask won’t impair their vision, either.

Stay Well Lit

If your kids have dark-colored costumes, consider having them wear a reflective vest or reflective materials of some type. You want to be sure that each pedestrian is visible to drivers. If your child doesn’t want to add a vest to their costume, have them carry a flashlight to keep them in sight.

Check the Candy

Don’t let your kids dive into their candy stash before you have a chance to check it. Look for any candy that seems to have been tampered with, has tears or punctures in the wrapper, or looks suspicious in any way.

At Tipton Hyundai, we hope you have a safe Halloween!

2018 Sonata Snags IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Rating

Over the years, as in-vehicle safety tech becomes more advanced and innovative, the IIHS has raised their standards, making it harder for automobiles to achieve the coveted Top Safety Pick+ rating.

Top Safety Pick

In order to obtain it, vehicles have to score top marks in every crash test category while having available crash avoidance technology and good quality headlights. For the 2018 model year, the Hyundai Sonata managed to pass the IIHS tests with flying colors and attain the Top Safety Pick+ title.

The IIHS has five different crashworthiness tests: small front overlap, moderate front overlap, side impact, roof strength, and head restraints. The 2018 Hyundai Sonata earned a top rating of “good” on every test.

The Sonata also was also equipped with the optional automatic emergency braking system and high-quality headlights. This is the second time the Hyundai Sonata has managed to grab the Top Safety Pick+ rating, following the 2016 model year.

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata’s Top Safety Pick+ safety rating makes it a great choice for a family sedan. If you’re interested, stop by Tipton Hyundai for an up close and personal look at the Hyundai Sonata and its new, top-of-the-line safety technology.
