2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Wins Car and Driver Editor’s Choice Award

Once again, a Hyundai vehicle has garnered a prestigious Editor’s Choice award from Car and Driver. This time, the 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo is the recipient of this well-regarded distinction. Given the 2019 Veloster Turbo’s incredible feature set, striking style, and exhilarating powertrain, the distinction comes as no surprise, though it does reaffirm what we already knew — this bold compact is an absolute blast to drive.

Car and Driver praised the Veloster’s “stiff structure, great steering, and a well-tuned suspension” which “make it feel lovely on twisty roads.” Scott Margason, Director of Product Planning for Hyundai Motor America, noted that the award is “another proof point of Hyundai’s commitment to excellence.”

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo comes equipped with a 201-horsepower engine that generates 195 lb-ft of torque for an ultra-responsive, undeniably thrilling experience on the road. And thanks to a new multi-link rear suspension, each ride is as smooth as it is fun.

The 2019 Veloster Turbo also offers an available Infinity premium audio system, and striking infotainment display, and standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ compatibility, all of which go a long way in making the 2019 Veloster Turbo exceptional fun, even at a complete standstill.

Bad Car Maintenance Habits Every Driver Should Avoid

Like in all aspects of life, bad habits can be easy to fall into. When it comes to car care, though, bad habits could be doing some serious harm to your car and putting you at risk on the road. Are you guilty of any of these bad car maintenance habits? Check out this list to find out if your car could be in better shape.

Neglecting fluid checks

Most drivers know they are supposed to regularly change their car’s motor oil, but many drivers neglect to monitor and change other important fluids. You should regularly keep an eye on coolant, brake and transmission fluids, as these are all crucial to your vehicle’s overall performance. The good news is, checking up on and replenishing these fluids is easy and inexpensive.

Ignoring failing brakes

If you’ve noticed your car making a grinding or squeaking sound when you apply the brakes, don’t ignore this. This probably means your car’s brakes or brake pads need to be replaced. When dealt with early, this is a quick and easy fix, but putting it off can quickly result in the need for expensive repairs.

Driving with old air filters

Relatively few drivers remember — or even know — to routinely replace their car’s cabin and engine air filters. Since they’re inexpensive, it’s a good idea to change out your car’s air filters a couple times a year or every time you change your car’s oil. Doing so will help keep your engine running smoothly and the interior of your car comfortable.

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.
