Distracted Driving Crackdown in Connecticut

www.keycars.comLabor Day is just around the corner, and with millions of drivers hitting the roads in new and used cars, many from Key Hyundai Solution Providers, the Dealer For The People hopes everyone hitting the roads keeps their cell phones off and their eyes on the road and hands upon the wheel! (Huge shout out to The Doors!)

I heard a disturbing thing on the radio when a station was talking about distracted driving, and man-oh-man did it make me a little bit uncomfortable.

Take a listen, and see what you think:

So do your friends and families, as well as all the other drivers on the road, a huge public safety favor: don’t drive distracted – not even for a second. Be safe, be smart, and have fun!

Do You Need the Extended Warranty for a Car?

Key Hyundai, www.keycars.comTo buy or not to buy that extended warranty for your vehicle!?!?! New and used car customers always hesitate and bristle when a car dealer tries to sell them the extended warranty. I’m Jill Merriam, Dealer For The People at Key Hyundai of Milford and Key Hyundai of Manchester and I want you to know: there’s not tricks or sneaky anything about the extended warranty. For some, it’s valued peace of mind. Others it’s a waste of money. How to tell the difference?

Here, I’ll explain the best I can:

There you have it: reputable dealers aren’t trying to ‘screw’ anybody, or take anybody’s hard earned money. Extended warranties are a personal decision: one I hope you have if you need it, but hope you never need it!

Key Hyundai Sponsors Milford Oyster Festival

Key Hyundai of MilfordIt’s that time of the year again: Milford Oyster Fest the largest one day festival in New England. Arts, crafts, music, rides, food, and yes, oysters galore!
Here’s a little known secret:
This Dealer For The People doesn’t even even like Oysters, but I LOVE the Milford Oyster Festival. This is a summer MUST-DO that has become an annual tradition for generations.
I love the Milford Oyster Fest because it lets us meet face-to-face 1000s (and I do mean 1000s!) of Key Hyundai friends and fans. I love the Milford Oyster Fest because of the amazing arts and crafts that inspire and wow me. I love the family fun, the food, and I really love the amazing musical talent (BLUES TRAVELER people!!!!).
But here’s the best reason of all: I love the Oyster Fest because the sole purpose is to give back to local non-profits in the area.

100% of all proceeds raised are given back to tons of local non-profits right here in the Milford area. And that is why this Dealer For The People LOVES the Milford Oyster Fest, and why Key Hyundai is the proud title sponsor of this incredible philanthropic event again this year.

Visit the Key Hyundai booths at the Milford Oyster Fest on Saturday, August 17th. We’re giving away goodies, a chance on a brand new 2013 Hyundai, and enter your name for chance to win a complete $300 SPA DAY for your vehicle.

Eat a couple oysters. Play a few games. Enjoy Milford at its finest. It’s a proud day for all of us working to give a little back to our community.
