Road Trip American Style

Key Hyundai Milford ConnecticutJust returned from a family road trip with Rob, Carly and Brady to the up-up-upper reaches of Vermont.

Way, way, way upper. Where internet and cell service is scarce, and having nothing to do is exactly what the vacation doctor ordered!

We traveled far north, near the Canadian border (where, by the way, Hyundai outsold everything and every body in the 1st 6 months of the Canook automotive world … but I’m off topic here!)

Driving in July you can’t help but notice car after car chock full of vacation life: tents, bikes, wagons, kayaks, canoes, all strapped on board. The inside bursting full with backpacks and chips and sleeping bags and stuffed animals (sometimes real!), and kids.

Lots of kids.

Kids in car seats, tweens set three across, teens calling shotgun for the front, while a mom or dad or the occasional grandparent sits wedged in back.

It’s family vacation time USA style, and it never fails to bring a smile to my heart!

So strap them in safely, check your car before you hit the road, and, above all, drive safely. We want you to have a great trip, and we want you back home in Connecticut, safe and sound.

Key Hyundai Manchester Open for Business during Construction Destruction

And then there was none.

Key Hyundai of Manchester was whacked, smacked, bulldozed to the ground to make room for the new & improved, bigger, better, cleaner, smoother, Key Hyundai with MORE for you, our valued and treasured customers!

But none is an exaggeration, because it’s not really “none,” thanks to Key Hyundai of Manchester‘s fancy-schmancy temporary office buildings for both sales and service and administration on site and 100% Open for Business!

Don’t mock me! These contemporary temporaries are really unbelievably nice inside! A/C, comfy cozy office space, waiting area, and real, working, clean, efficient restrooms! Seriously! The restrooms are awesome and they’re WAAAYYYY nicer than our old ones! Who’d think we’d get so excited about a potty?

Key Hyundai Cares about Connecticut

I personally try to do a little bit of good every single day. It may not be much, but might just be enough to inspire others and make the day a bit brighter for some. And I’m proud to employ so many like-minded people as well: the Key Hyundai family lives, works, and plays in Connecticut, and are proud to give back, give things away, and support our community when we can!

Lately, Key Hyundai of Milford and Manchester have been doing our part as well. Don’t want to brag, but thought you might like to know some of the Key moments in Connecticut.

Red, White & Blue Spectacular at Westfield CT Post Mall Milford

Key Hyundai celebrating July 4th at CT Post Mall Milford

Key Hyundai began a 6 month partnership with Westfield’s Connecticut Post Mall with their fireworks spectacular. This community event raised awareness and funds for ASCONN – a Connecticut non-profit group that supports families & children living with autism. Key Hyundai’s Chrissi Werner led the charge showcasing the award-winning Hyundai Sonata, and handing out lots of free water, red, white & blue glow necklaces, and coupons and special offers for attendees. A $300 remote car starter with installation was raffled off, and Milford resident Jennifer Dion was notified via Key Hyundai Facebook page that she was indeed, the lucky winner!
