Connecticut, start your engines!!!

The summer’s greatest classic car show, Cruisin’ On Main Street, is the perfect summer day when hundreds of classic car collectors and fans flood downtown Manchester for some fun in the sun, delicious food, fun music, and lots of locals meeting, greeting and having a great time.

Key Hyundai has been a proud sponsor of Cruisin’ On Main Street for many, many years, and is happy to be part of this festive day! It’s a great opportunity to meet our friends and neighbors, mingle with other CT small businesses, talk cars, talk fun, and enjoy a beautiful day downtown.

Cruisin’ On Main Street is the largest downtown cruise show of its kind in the Northeast. Come visit our Key Hyundai booth, and walk the streets of yesterday in scenic downtown Manchester, Connecticut. Our Key Hyundai team is raffling off a Key Hyundai SPA DAY for your car, talking all things trade in, financing, and used car Drive Worry Free benefits. Or just stop by and say hi!

How to Be a Successful Car Salesman

If you’re looking for a used car, brand new Hyundai, or anything in between in Milford, New Haven, Fairfield, Hartford or Central CT, here’s a little secret about successful car salesmen and women:

Key Hyundai doesn’t sell new or used cars; instead, Key Hyundai of Milford and Key Hyundai of Manchester provides affordable, quality automotive solutions that get people where they need to be.

I’m Jill Merriam, the Dealer For The People, here to let you know we don’t sell cars at Key Hyundai: we provide automotive solutions. 100s of them. 1000s really. And by doing so, create lifelong relationships with people who begin as our customers and quickly become our friends.

Our solution providers are motivated to rethink what a car means in people’s lives, and approach every customer with the mindset of helping them fill a need, find a solution. It’s different for every single person who walks through our doors.

New car, used car. Second car, growing family car. Sporty first job car, luxury commuter car, family SUV. Bad credit car, first car ever. Everyone has a story, and we are here to listen, learn, and find a car that fits your needs and your budget.

Sounds like a huge responsibility? Well it is, and not one we take lightly. Here’s a quick, 90 second video on how Key Hyundai solution providers rethink automotive sales, and by doing so, help people live fuller lives, including their own.

I’m proud to revamp the car business with solution providers that want to help people get where they need to be.

What was your experience with Key Hyundai solution providers? How was it different than at another car dealership? I’d love to hear about it at jillcares@keycars.com.
