CT car dealership brings the test drive to you

Key Hyundai test-drives new app in CTAre you sick of car dealerships?  Here’s an idea: would you like to request a test-drive of the vehicle of your choice – new, used, Hyundai or any make or model car in Connecticut – have that car brought directly to you, wherever you are?

Like Uber, but for car shopping?

Key Hyundai of Milford and Key Hyundai of Manchester in Connecticut is about to do just that.

Think about it. Would you test drive a car from the comfort of wherever you are – home, work, gym, diner – instead of coming into a dealership? Because a new Hyundai app does just that, and may just revolutionize the car buying experience.

Or not.

Jill Merriam, Dealer For The People, announced Key Hyundai will be one of the first test-sites for a new Hyundai app. But do people prefer to visit a dealership, or have us come to them? Here is the skinny on the new mobile app in this quick, Nicer, Newer News video, and what it means for you. Take a listen:

Fines vs jail time: does the punishment fit the crime?

CT car dealer considers fines in VW scandalJill Merriam, Dealer For The People at Connecticut’s favorite new and used car dealership Key Hyundai, has been following the Volkswagen emissions scandal, and she doesn’t even own a VW!

Most people don’t have billions of dollars lying around to pay fines when we mess up, but many big name manufacturers do. Do you think this is enough to stop them from breaking the law?

Take a listen to this quick, Nicer, Newer News video from Jill Merriam, about fines vs. jail time as punishment for manufacturers:

Do you think financial fines are enough to change how manufacturers (auto and others) mislead the public? Do you drive a Volkswagen, and does this change your opinion of the manufacturer?
