2015 Hyundai Elantra Top Safety Pick Saves the Day!

Welcome to another edition of Testimonial Tuesday. Today we’re introducing you to Tiffany. She’s stoked to be driving back to Klamath Falls in her sporty 2015 Silver Hyundai Elantra. We always like to get a little backstory on how customers come through our doors and hers was quite a tale.

HyundaiTiffanyTestiTiffany was rear-ended at school earlier this year and suffered a minor concussion. Not to mention her car was totaled. So, her grandparents, Bill and Glenda, stepped up to help her find a safe, reliable and affordable vehicle. Enter: the 2015 Hyundai Elantra. It just took home one of the Insurance Institutes for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Picks for 2015.** 

“Butler Hyundai was just really helpful and friendly, laid back, relaxed – no pressure,” remarked Bill. “Plus Frank was really great.”

They found this little gem online at butlerhyundai.com, called us, connected with Frank Liva and within a week got their granddaughter into a stunning, safe vehicle with an affordable lease and incredible warranty.
“We were also really impressed by the 20 year, 200,000 mile warranty,” said Tiffany. “You can’t beat that!”

We wish you all the best Tiffany! These are the the kind of stories that make us do what we do – finding the right vehicle at the right time for right person and seeing that smile on their smile. Take a look at that smile! It’s called the “new car smile” (and goes hand in hand with that coveted “new car smell”.) Happy #TestimonialTuesday everyone!

**To qualify for 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as a good or acceptable rating in the small overlap front test.

According to the IIHS, “The 2015 Top Safety Pick rating is based on ‘Good’ in the 31 mph side-impact crash test, 40 mph moderate overlap frontal crash test, 20 mph rear-impact test, roof strength testing, and Good or Acceptable in the 40 mph overlap frontal crash test performed by the IIHS. The 2015 Top Safety Pick+ designation is awarded to vehicles that have all of the above ratings as well as an available front crash prevention system that earns an ‘advanced or superior’ rating.” Click HERE for more information.*
