We Bought a 2013 Hyundai Elantra from Hyundai of Cool Springs (A WAY-FM Business Impact Partner)

This is NOT a sponsored post. This is simply a passionate testimonial based on our family’s experience. Neither Hyundai of Cool Springs nor WAY-FM were aware of this post until after the purchase of the vehicle.

We Bought a 2013 Hyundai Elantra from Hyundai of Cool Springs (A Business Impact Partner of WAY-FM) during Memorial Day Weekend

Our family now has a “new to us” family vehicle and we are all 4 very excited about it! This past Memorial Day weekend, we traded in our 2006 Honda Accord for a 2013 Hyundai Elantra.

We Bought a 2013 Hyundai Elantra from Hyundai of Cool Springs (A Business Impact Partner of WAY-FM) during Memorial Day Weekend

Everyday for a couple years now, I have been hearing commercials for Hyundai of Cool Springs on my favorite radio station, WAY-FM (both of which happen to be right around the corner from my office).

By default, my wife and I have been Honda people for as long as we’ve been married; nearly 8 years now. So while I was hearing about the Hyundai brand on a daily basis, I was already set on replacing my wife’s Honda Accord for a Honda Fit.

However, in addition to the radio ads I kept hearing on WAY-FM as part of the Business Impact Partnership, something else magical happened that lead to my conversion from Honda to Hyundai…

We Bought a 2013 Hyundai Elantra from Hyundai of Cool Springs (A Business Impact Partner of WAY-FM) during Memorial Day Weekend

A couple of months ago while getting both of our Hondas maintenanced, I candidly asked my mechanic of several years now (at Firestone Complete Auto Care in Cool Springs) a question that only he could legitimately answer as a non-biased 3rd party expert on the subject:

“What is the best car company as far as dependability, maintenance, and value?”

This was his immediate answer:

“If you were asking me this question 3 years ago, I would have said Honda. But now, Hyundai has really stepped up their game. The next time I get a new car, I would like to get a Hyundai for myself. Plus, Hyundais are actually more affordable than Hondas these days.”

I value his opinion very highly, as he knows exactly which cars have the most (and least) trouble. That was a major turning point for me.

Not to mention, back in 2014 while our family was having our house built, there were 4 occasions where we got to review Hyundais for a week at a time, here on my blog. We drove the Hyundai Sonata, the Azera, and the Sante Fe twice; first in May, then again in December. (To read those posts, just click on the bold red title above the “flashback” pictures.)

We Bought a 2013 Hyundai Elantra from Hyundai of Cool Springs (A Business Impact Partner of WAY-FM) during Memorial Day Weekend

Then last week, my wife told me she found a great deal on a 2013 Honda Sonata, after browsing the website for Hyundai of Cool Springs. So I drove there the next day to check it out. Within 30 minutes, I was offered a deal that I felt would be foolish to turn down.

We Bought a 2013 Hyundai Elantra from Hyundai of Cool Springs (A Business Impact Partner of WAY-FM) during Memorial Day Weekend

However, by the time we test drove the Sonata as a family a few days later, my wife just wasn’t feeling it. When I turned around to the back seat and asked our 5 and a half year-old son Jack what he thought about the car, he apathetically shrugged off my question with, “I don’t know.”

I could see the Sonata just wasn’t the right ergonomic fit for our family, or for my wife in particular; this was important as the new vehicle would be her commuter car from Spring Hill to Nashville every day once she returns to work from maternity leave.

We Bought a 2013 Hyundai Elantra from Hyundai of Cool Springs (A Business Impact Partner of WAY-FM) during Memorial Day Weekend

My wife then revealed to me she had also seen a 2013 Elantra on the website too. We mentioned this to our sales professional, Corey Carpenter, who was happy to show us the other vehicle. He assured our family he was there to help us choose the vehicle that was truly right for us. We never once sensed any bit of pressure from him, which gave us confidence throughout the experience.

You can imagine how this story ends. Before we even made it to the stop sign as we began our test drive of the Elantra, we all knew as a family that this was our car. When I asked our son Jack this time, he instantly responded, “I love this car!”

Based on the fact our month-old daughter Holly remained asleep during the ride and didn’t make a peep, I assume she approved as well.

Obviously, the Sonata that we originally came there for is a great vehicle, I think it’s just that perhaps the Elantra somehow caters more to my wife and me as Millennial parents (both born in 1981). We liked the smaller, faster-feeling, more concise feel of the Elantra.

My wife keeps saying how nice, classy and clean the Elantra is. She loves the seat warmers, the mocha interior, the rubber floor mats, and the tinted windows.

As for me, I especially love the wheels and the way the car handles.

I’m sure it’s no surprise that like any vegan/vegetarian family, the first place we drove our new car was straight to Whole Foods, from the Hyundai Cool Springs parking lot. Typical.

And that, is the story of the conversion of our family from Honda to Hyundai. Please keep in mind that neither Hyundai Cool Springs nor WAY-FM had any idea I was going to write this blog post. Again, this is not a sponsored post.

This was no random decision to buy a Hyundai; nor was it a random decision to replace my wife’s vehicle. We had been planning this new car decision for nearly a year, ever since last July when we found out we were going to have another baby.

So financially, we already had the money in the bank. We were just waiting on the right deal on the right vehicle.

We Bought a 2013 Hyundai Elantra from Hyundai of Cool Springs (A Business Impact Partner of WAY-FM) during Memorial Day Weekend

The next move is replace my 2004 Honda Element, which I’ve owned for over a decade. We have our sights on a Hyundai Santa Fe; which is one of the company vehicles of WAY-FM. But first, we must build up enough in savings account like we did for the Elantra. Hopefully in about a year or so, we’ll be ready for that purchase.

I love the Hyundai Santa Fe because while it still feels like a smaller SUV, it has a 3rd row seat.

We Bought a 2013 Hyundai Elantra from Hyundai of Cool Springs (A Business Impact Partner of WAY-FM) during Memorial Day Weekend

To think, it all began in 2011 when my wife started listening to WAY-FM on the way to work, telling me how funny The Wally Show was and that she really liked the music. From there, I began listening to it as well, soon making it the main station I listen to.

That set everything else in motion.

If you have any other questions about our family’s experience, just leave a comment. I’m pretty good at getting back to my readers in the comment section.

Dear Jack: Our New House Now Has Electricity & Tile (2015 Hyundai Sonata Weekend)

4 years, 1 month.

Dear Jack: Our New House Now Has Electricity & Tile (2015 Hyundai Sonata Weekend)

Dear Jack,

With our firm closing date on January 29th, we are just about 6 weeks away from moving in to our much anticipated new home.

Dear Jack: Our New House Now Has Electricity & Tile (2015 Hyundai Sonata Weekend)

I would have to imagine that each remaining week leading up to our closing date is going to bring substantial new revelations; like this week, for example…

revelations

Our new house now has electricity! It’s alive!

Dear Jack: Our New House Now Has Electricity & Tile (2015 Hyundai Sonata Weekend)

So that means we now have a working thermostat on both the main floor and the upstairs. Plus, we have working light fixtures and ceiling fans.

Dear Jack: Our New House Now Has Electricity & Tile (2015 Hyundai Sonata Weekend)

Our front door is now installed as well; with a working doorbell.

Oh yeah, and the tile is in! It hasn’t been grouted yet, but it’s now laid down. Somehow I either forgot or just never realized that we have tile in both full bathrooms, as well as our laundry room. (I thought it was just one room.)

Dear Jack: Our New House Now Has Electricity & Tile (2015 Hyundai Sonata Weekend)

We attempted to take a few legitimate family pictures in our house, but there just must be something about a Ninja Turtle lovin’ 4 year-old boy that keeps him from making normal pictures.

legitimate

Therefore, the whole family ends up taking a lot of silly pictures instead. We’ll take what we can get, I guess. It’s real life for us, so I’m not going to deny it!

Dear Jack: Our New House Now Has Electricity & Tile (2015 Hyundai Sonata Weekend)

As is our tradition, we of course drove over to the model house and visited the in-house agent. If for no other reason than checking in with her, to let you play with the snowman (your “baby”) and to check in on your “pizza parlor” (a piece of orange foam) underneath the Christmas tree.

Dear Jack: Our New House Now Has Electricity & Tile (2015 Hyundai Sonata Weekend)

As I mentioned in my previous letter, we visited the main 2 preschools we are considering enrolling you in once we move.

We also took another look at the swimming pool of the brand-new rec center, right around the corner from our new home.

Of course, we had the luxury of driving the sporty new 2015 Hyundai Sonata, equipped with Mommy’s favorite: seat warmers. It also came with a panaramic sunroof. We even got to see a rare migration of birds overhead that was so real it looked fake, like CGI or something!

https://familyfriendlydaddyblog.com/2014/12/21/2015-hyundai-sonata-sport-2-0t-family-friendly-review/

You enjoyed singing your renditions of some holiday classics in the back seat…

 

We finished off the weekend with a trip to Big Lots to check out some furniture. After all, we’ll slowly be furnishing our new home as we go.

https://familyfriendlydaddyblog.com/2014/12/21/dear-jack-primrose-vs-rainbow-finding-a-preschool-near-our-new-house/

With us spending Christmas week with Nonna and Papa in Alabama, it will be 2 weeks before we see our house again.

I wonder what will be update on it by then… maybe the hardwood floors?

Love,

Daddy

2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T: Family Friendly Review

2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T: Family Friendly Review

My very first impression of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T was that it is a man’s car. My theory is that Hyundai wanted to design a car for men who like driving a tough car, but who are now hauling kids around.

And if that was Hyundai’s plan, I’d say they did an excellent job.

Hyundai Sonata

All week, the guys I work with, as well as my guy friends I have seen this week, have approached me after seeing the car: “Hey, is that the new 2015 Hyundai Sonata? That thing is sharp!”

They already knew more than I did about the Sonata, which tells me: Men are attracted to this car.

That is the official concensus of the modern dads I know after seeing this car.

2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T: Family Friendly Review

As I drove it around this week, with my son in the back seat, I have to admit: I felt like I was pretty big stuff.

The sharp angles of the rear view mirrors, the “ninja throwing star” wheels, the extremely low ground effects on the front… all very nice to look at and to drive.

2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T: Family Friendly Review

Here’s a “2 minute walk around” of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata that I made, by the way:

 

Now that I’ve established the demographics that this is a man’s car, which doubles as a very effecient family car, I want to point out what my wife and son thought of it.

2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T: Family Friendly Review

My 4 year-old son’s favorite features include the panoramic sunroof and the fold down back seat. Each day as I’ve dropped him off at school, I let him crawl through to the trunk, where I lifted him out.

2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T: Family Friendly Review

It’s a fairly large opening, since the entire seat folds down.

My wife’s favorite features included the heated/cooled seats in the back, the over all comfort level of the interior, and the user-friendliness of anchors for the car seat.

2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T: Family Friendly Review

Another feature that I definitely appreciated was that I was alerted one morning when one of the tires was low on air.

So I stopped at the gas station and filled up the low tire (like a boss), being able to see on the screen that I had put enough, in real time.

2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T: Family Friendly Review

Those are my thoughts. I’m curious to know what other guys who have driven it have to say. I really don’t think I’m wrong in my synopsis, though.

Like I said, it’s a car for men who like driving a tough car, but who are now hauling kids around; a perfect marriage of sporty and practical.

I hope you have enjoyed my family friendly review of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata, which is manufactured in Alabama.

Come back again soon!

Dear Jack: Listening to (Hanukkah Station)

Dear Jack,

Right before backing out of the parking space of your school for our journey home a few night ago, I decided to find a station on SiriusXM that we both might enjoy, while our family is reviewing the all new 2015 Hyundai Sonata this week.

I looked up and saw what was arguably one of the most random stations I’ve ever seen on Sirius XM: Radio Hanukkah, channel 68.

To see three different Christian music stations on SiriusXM is no surprise, but I’ve never seen a “Jewish music station” before; even if it is just a temporary, seasonal station.

The first song that was playing when I turned to that station was “The 613 Commandments” by Debbie Friedman. It sounded like the kind of song you would learn in Sunday School at our church.

After only two seconds of hearing the song, you blurted out, “Daddy, I like that song.”

So I kept it on Radio Hanukkah, channel 68.

Another song, “Bagel” by David Weinstone Music for Kids, was about a man pretending to be a bagel; though at first you thought the singer was saying “baby” instead of “bagel.”

You liked that song so much that you asked me to play it again after it ended. I had to explain to you that unlike a CD, I couldn’t instantly replay the song.

Unsurprisingly, we listened to that station the whole way home.

Since college, when I wrote my final paper of college on Jewish history, I have been fascination by Jewish culture.

Two thirds of the Christian Bible is the Old Testament; or as I call it, the Jewish Bible.

Technically, the majority of what we believe overlaps into what Jewish people believe.

So the way I feel is that by us being exposed to some Jewish songs, we’re catching up on some lost culture of our own religion.

If nothing else, we had fun hearing a song about bagels!

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abbi’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

4 years.

Dear Jack,

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

I mentioned how you chose to wear your “super hero costume” to open your birthday gifts from Mommy and me when you turned 4 a few weeks ago; having received the outfit as a gift from your friend Madison at your Lego birthday party at Bricks 4 Kidz.

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

Well, this weekend you were quite excited when Mommy and I learned that Abbi’s birthday actually had a costume theme.

While I tried to convince you just to wear your Ninja Turtle hoodie and be Donatello, you insisted on wearing your costume from Madison.

The logistical problem with that is that we had already boxed it up in our storage unit, as our new house should be ready by the end of next month.

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

Mommy was up for the challenge so we loaded up in the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe we have been driving this week, as we await the news of whether or not my own car will be totaled thanks the albino deer that hit me on the way home the night before Thanksgiving.

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

Something really cool about every Hyundai I have reviewed is that basically the entire ceiling is a moon roof. You love that! You love being able to see so much of what’s going on.

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

Mommy’s favorite feature of the Santa Fe is the heated seats, especially this time of year.

My favorite thing about it is the size. Now more than ever, I like a good strong SUV that help protect me in the event I get hit by another albino deer. Hyundais are just nice vehicles anyway, as I’ve been quick to mention in my other reviews of them.

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

Speaking of safety, I also really appreciate the Blind Spot Detection System, which alerts me anytime another vehicle or object is getting dangerously close to me. (After having recently been hit by a deer, this is something I’m quite sensitive to this days!)

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

And not to mention, the back-up camera saves me a lot of worries too. (See below the relevant song that happened to come up on XM radio this week while we were driving the Santa Fe.)

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

Well, thanks to Mommy’s supreme packing skills, she was able to pull up the door of our storage unit, then immediately open up the box with your super hero costume! You then curiously asked about your monster trucks- she found that box too.

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

Before Abbi’s birthday party, we decided we should stop by our new house which is still under construction and see the latest updates.

Afterwards, as part of our tradition, we stopped by the model home so you could say hi to the in-house real estate agent. You had hidden a piece of foam (which you refer to as your “pizza parlor”) in the bushes and decided to crawl under the Christmas tree as a gift… because that’s normal for 4 year-old boys, I assume. (See top picture, again.)

When we arrived to Abbi’s party, we were greeted by hens, which we fed some dried worms to.

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

Once we walked inside the house, I was glad we had found your costume beforehand, because I realized your Ninja Turtle hoodie wasn’t quite enough for this costume-themed party.

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

You kept your eye mask on the entire drive and at least the first 30 minutes of the party.

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

And of course, your friend Madison (who gave you the costume) was so happy to see you wearing it. (Pictured below.)

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

You were lucky: you basically got to have an all-you-can-eat sweets buffet while we were there.

Dressing As A Super Hero For Abby’s Birthday/2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Weekend

So we decided having dinner at Whole Foods would be a good way to offset that, but first we stopped to see some Christmas lights along the way.

Needless to say, we had a really fun week in the Santa Fe. And you especially had fun, being a super hero the whole time!

Love,

Daddy

2014 Hyundai Santa Fe LTD FWD: Family Friendly Car Review

Thanks for coming back! Hi there, I am Nick Shell, the daddy blogger of Parents.com’s The Dadabase, but on the side, I review cars.

This week’s featured vehicle is the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe LTD FWD, which my wife said might possibly be her favorite car I have reviewed so far. She really like how the seats had heaters and “coolers” built in to them.

2014 Hyundai Sante Fe LTD FWD family car review

As for my 3 and a half year-old son, these were his words during our first drive in it:

“Daddy, this car: awesome. This car is awesome!”

He particularly loved the panoramic sunroof. Basically, the entire ceiling is glass, and the front half of it opens up.

At one point, he explained, “Daddy, the sun is getting in my eye- and it’s getting in my chip’s eye too.”

But it sure was cool to have that feature as we took our mini-road trip a couple of hours away to my hometown in Fort Payne, AL for Memorial Day Weekend.

2014 Hyundai Sante Fe car review

One feature that I particularly found helpful was how I was able to see in real time, how many miles per gallon I was using. During my road trip, which was mainly Interstate, I averaged right over 25 miles per gallon, which is exactly what the “window sticker” said it gets.

I would have never given the Hyundai brand a second thought had I not reviewed two of them now, but I am officially impressed by Hyundai. They actually make really nice and impressive cars!

And that’s not even mentioning their amazing warranties…

Well, don’t just take my word for it- check out these stats and pictures and form an opinion for yourself.

As for my family, I can honestly say we truly loved driving the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Family Friendly Car Review: 2014 Hyundai Azera Limited

2014 Hyundai Avenza

“This thing doesn’t drive, it hovers.”

That’s the first thing that ran through my head after driving the 2014 Hyundai Azera Limited today.

Until this week, I had never even been in Hyundai. But now I know, driving a Hyundai is sort of like driving a cloud.

I guess that idea is only reinforced by the fact this one comes with a panoramic tilt-and-slide sunroof. So it’s almost like having a convertible; since, in essence, the walls and ceiling are made of glass and can all be opened.

2014 Hyundai Avenza

Another phrase I would like to use to describe the 2014 Hyundai Azera is “user friendly.”

I have reviewed cars in the past where it took a day or so to really get a feel for where everything is and how everything works.

Not in this car. Everything just makes sense. I liked that there were plenty of easy to access compartments to place the keys, my phone, my camera, and my son’s snacks.

It’s also very easy to fold up the back seats to access the trunk. That’s a feature my 3 year-old son holds very dear, because he likes to crawl through it.

2014 Hyundai Azera

So bottom line, this is a fun family car to drive. Our family loves it. Nice and easy, but also fancy too.

I always got Hyundai mixed up with Honda. Not anymore. Based on this particular one, the 2014 Hyundai Azera, I have a very high opinion of the company.

It’s got a different feel to it all together. Interesting… in a good way, is how I want to phrase it.
