I got to visit the new plant in Alabama and all I can say is Wow!

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xox5Ot1zkgw]So,  in celebration of Earth Day (or of my 41st birthday, which is April 28th), I wanted to write about my amazing trip to Montgomery, Alabama last week to visit the Hyundai plant.  I have to say, it completely blew me away.  First of all, the people that work there are so proud of their jobs.  The people in Montgomery in general are just nice.

Second, the factory workers actually take the time to explain all the things they’ve done to make the earth a better place.  In fact, they even have a written environmental policy.

Hyundai produces the Hyundai Sonata and the Hyundai Santa Fe at this plant.  They produce 1,200 vehicles a day!  The plant is an absolute modern marvel.  What really blew me away is that most of the stamping and the welding are done by robots.  It is absolutely mesmerizing to watch these robots work.  You should definitely take the time to watch the video above.  It will give you chills.

I came back to my dealership, Key Hyundai in CT, with such a pride about the product that we are representing.  I am so impressed with the workmanship of the 2011 Hyundai Sonata and the 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe.  I honestly can now say that I don’t know why someone would ever chose the Honda Accord or Toyota Camry over the Hyundai Sonata.  The quality of the Sonata is incomparable, it’s cheaper and it comes with America’s Best Warranty.  This car is a real game changer.

If you want more information on the Hyundai Sonata, or on Hyundai in general, please don’t hesitate to email me at jillcares@keycars.com.  I’m Jill Merriam, owner of Key Hyundai in Manchester, CT and Milford, CT and dealer for the people.
