Whenever our Nashville, TN, or Hendersonville area customers come by the dealership for some routine Hyundai Service, we almost always hear a great review of whatever Hyundai new model they are driving.

Because of this, we can't say we were completely surprised when we found out that the 2013 Hyundai new model lineup had performed quite well in the annual J.D. Power & Associates prestigious Initial Quality Study.

The Study is a benchmark test for auto manufacturers every year, as they seek to find the average number of problems drivers have within the first 100 days of ownership of new model-year cars. This year, the South Korean manufacturer placed as the 10th overall brand, moving up 8 spots from the previous year, and they significantly reduced the amount of problems per vehicle when compared to earlier years!

Several individual new Hyundai models were noted by the study, including the Accent, Azera, and Sonata, which all placed 2nd in their respective categories. The Santa Fe took home a solid 3rd place finish, but best of all was the 2013 Hyundai Genesis took home the top spot in the highly competitive midsize premium car category!

"Outperforming all of our competitors in the premium midsize car segment is a reflection of the dedication of all Hyundai team members. Awards like this demonstrate we're succeeding in connecting with our customers through an unprecedented combination of premium performance, technology, safety and quality,"1 said Erwin Raphael, Director of Engineering and Quality for Hyundai Motor America.

Come visit us at 1512 Broadway, Nashville, TN where one of our friendly staff members will be happy to show you and Hyundai model more thoroughly.
