April News

Wilson Auto Group sales were up 46% over February 2011 and up 57% over March 2010.  YTD our Hyundai sales are up 27% over last years first quarter and our Kia sales are up a whopping 208%!

I just got back from Las Vegas and the Hyundai National Dealer meeting.  What an inspired and excited dealer body!  I believe 90% of all Hyundai dealers were there and the atmosphere with Hyundai's new products, fuel efficiency leadership and sales momentum was electrifying!

Our newest baby, Accent, will be for sale in a few weeks along with the new Sonata Hybrid, giving Wilson Hyundai two more 40 MPG vehicles.  Veloster will follow this summer and it is quite impressive in person...another 40 MPG hit coming soon.

April is destined to be a great month as gas prices have car shoppers thinking small to med-sized cars/SUV's which is the heart of our product line-up.  New Sonata's start at just $19,990 and new Tucson's are only $19,995....under $20,000 for a fuel efficient, roomy, safe and reliable Crossover SUV!  AND...Wilson Hyundai has our best-ever selection of Tucson's.

Kia continues to have tremendous sales momentum and will set records in April with our largest selection ever of the hot-selling Kia Sorento SUV.  Produced here in the deep south in West Point, Georgia, Sorento gets 29 MPG and is priced under $20,000!   With the room, 5 star safety ratings, 10yr/100,000 mile warranty and great styling....Kia Sorento can't be beat and has been named by a promient consumer magazine as its "TOP FAMILY SUV"....ahead of Honda CRV, Toyota and Nissan.

Wilson Kia has a huge selection and they are all sale priced in April to "turn and earn".  In addition, the fuel efficient Kia Forte is sale priced in April for ZERO down and just $269 per month.  We are encouraging customers to take advantage of a return to the market of major sub-prime/near-prime lenders.  With Forte's $1000 rebate used as down payment, we expect to put a record number of Forte drivers behind the wheel with low payments of just $269 per month.

In addition, the all-new Kia Optima is arriving in greater quantities and we are sellling them literally as they arrive off the truck.

We expect a record April as we drive towards a fantastic year at Wilson Auto Group.  Consumer confidence has returned, gas prices have given lots a new reason to trade and lenders have loosened up...how could this not be a great month?
