Substitute teacher finds 2013 Sonata at Centennial Hyundai

Las Vegas resident Kristy Green said she fell in love with a 2013 Pacific Blue Sonata and purchased it right off the showroom floor recently at Centennial Hyundai in the northwest valley.

A substitute school teacher with the Clark County School District, Green selected the Sonata after test driving several other vehicles.

“We loved the color of this Sonata,” said Green, a resident of Las Vegas since 1996. “In addition, there was plenty of room inside; both in headroom and legroom. You don’t realize how roomy it is until you get inside.

“Also, it has great visual and there are no real blind spots.”

After buying the car, she and her husband, Richard, who teaches premed at Northwest Career and Technical Academy, took their first trip to Newport Beach, Calif.

“We got about 500 miles out of the first tank of gas,” Green said. “We got way better fuel efficiency than we thought we’d get.”

Green said the 2.4-cylinder, 198-horsepower is excellent for in-town driving or on the open road.

“It has all the power we need,” she said. “That, combined with the gas mileage, makes this the an ideal vehicle. Also, the car looks good and that’s important to me.”

The Sonata has two-tone leather, six-speed automatic transmission, the largest trunk in its class and Blue Link and Bluetooth. It even has motor-driven power steering instead of traditional power steering unit.

“This was the easiest and quickest car-buying experience we have had,” Green said.

“The whole process only took us a couple of hours. Everyone in the dealership was very professional and we were very impressed.

The transaction was handled by sales agents Rick Walker and Rob Trujillo.

“We loved their professionalism and they both demonstrated great attention to detail,” Green said. “We were really impressed by the fact that they remembered us from a previous visit during the summer.

Centennial Hyundai is at 6200 Centennial Center Drive in the northwest valley.

It is part of a locally owned operation that also includes Planet Hyundai Sahara at 7150 W. Sahara Ave. and Planet Hyundai Used Car Superstore at 7100 W. Sahara Ave. For more information, call 702-483-2200 (Centennial), 702-938-1400 (Sahara) or by visiting www.planetlv.com.
