July Newspost

June ends and so does the first half of 2011.  Hard to believe this year is half over already!

Wilson Hyundai's YTD sales are up over 43% over 2010 while Wilson Kia's sales are up a whopping 113%.  Our product lineup of fuel efficient small to mid-size sedans and SUV's are just what the market wants right now.

We are so thankful for all our faithful friends,loyal customers and our enthusiastic employees who have made this year our best ever in the automobile business.  It is fun to be a Kia and Hyundai dealer right now and we have something going for us that is very precious....MOMENTUM and a CAN DO attitude.

June 2009 was a dark time in our country as we were in the throes of a serious recession and both GM and Chrysler were in bankruptcy.  Locally, my Dodge franchise was terminated at a very precarious time after over 20 years as a Dodge dealer...being the #1 Dodge dealer in the entire state of MS for 15 of those years.
Now, with the advantage of hindsight, all I can say is THANK YOU.   What some meant as evil towards our company has turned into the best thing that has ever happened and we are so grateful.   In the bible, Romans 8:28 says "God works all things out for good for those that love Him and are called according to His purposes"   I think I could be a walking/talking real life example of that.   We are so blessed and thankful.

Hyundai is building a great car.  The Hyundai Sonata, Hyundai Elantra, Santa Fe and Tucson are all hot sellers.  The all new 2012 Hyundai Accent is just now arriving (40 mpg!!) and we have them introductory special priced starting at just $14,995....with AC and Power windows!  The all new luxury flagship, Equus, is selling well...I never thought we'd be selling $60,000 sedans at full price with no incentives but this car offers so much value at $30,000 less than a comparably equipped Lexus LS460, it is apparent to smart shoppers.

On the Kia side, the USA built (in the deep south in a brand new, technologically advanced 2200 acre plant in West Point, GA) 2012 Kia Sorento is selling well.  Now with an improved gasoline direct injection engine that produces "BEST IN CLASS" fuel economy, we are certain that it will do even better in its second year.  We have over 40 brand new Sorento's to choose from and a July special running for just $249 a month.

Kia Soul and Kia Forte both have been stellar sellers as well.  With Kia Motors Finance aggressive lending and our good relationship with them, we are getting "less than perfect" credit buyers financed with a nationwide company at great rates without all the subprime hassles.  Apply online at or our website  .   We would love to help you.

Thank you again to all our customers, friends, employees and citizens for your support.  Whether you bought a car from us or just said a nice word about us to someone in the market; we appreciate you.

Please call on me personally if I may be of service in your transportation needs.
