If you needed another reason to consider a Hyundai this may be the one that gets you to seriously consider buying one of the Korean company’s vehicles. Hyundai, along with its sister brand, Kia (Hyundai Motors owns nearly 38% of Kia Motors) can claim seven of the top twenty spots on MSN Autos’ list of the 2014 models least expensive to maintain! That fact, combined with the manufacturer’s and Butler’s combined powertrain warranty of 20 years/200,000 miles makes it nearly impossible to ignore either brand!  See which Hyundai and Kia models made the list below.  Then follow this link to see the entire list.

1.  Hyundai Accent
7. Kia Rio
8. Kia Forte Koup
9. Kia Forte
16. Kia Soul

At Least Two Butler Brands to Advertise During 2014 Super Bowl

super bowlWe’re two and a half weeks from the “Big Game” and yet the advertising schedule for the Super Bowl has yet to be set! We do know, however, that at least two of the brands Butler sells will be making an appearance – and most likely pay up to $4-million dollars per 30-second spot. They are Hyundai, which says will air two commercials, and Kia, whose ad buy has yet to be determined. That excites us given that the two have a pretty good track record for cute commercials. To see offerings from previous years click here. In the meantime, we’ll keep our ear to the ground for more information and, when the ads are finally released we’ll post ’em here. Stay tuned!
