2012 Hyundai Elantra Coupe Spy Photos


New Elantra coupe photos have surfaced. The car looks to have the same front end as the sedan as far as I can tell. The roof line looks a little lower in the rear and the back doors are of course longer. An Elantra coupe would compete with only a few vehicles such as the Civic 2-door and Scion tC, but will be a nice sporty addition to the line-up. Check out the photos and stay tuned for more details as they arrive.

Life Regret #1: Eagle Scout

Up until about a month ago I have had 3 life regrets but recently that number has been raised to 4. The first one may not seem very big to many of you but it has been something I wish I had accomplished. I have three older brothers that were really big into scouting. All three received their Eagle Scout award before the age of 16. I was in cub scouts and liked the programs well enough. We would go camping, start fires, cook outside, sleep in tents, and fish - it was a lot of fun. For some reason however when I got a little older...

2012 Hyundai Accent Best in Class Horsepower and Fuel Economy


The 2011 Sonata and Elantra have taken their respective competition and caused them to run and hide. The new 2012 Accent shouldn't be any different. It will have best in class horsepower and fuel economy and LOOKS!

Goodbye So Soon

My wife and I got married 4 years ago today! I've had 14 cars cars during my 13 years of having my driver's licence. I brought a '04 Ralliart into our marriage and my wife drove a '96 Legacy. At the time I was living less than a block from the dealership I worked for, and I could walk to work. So I decided that we would sell both cars and use one, so we could work on getting out of debt. We purchased a '98 Galant and have used that ugly-as-sin vehicle for the family 4 years now.

Pre-Owned Deal of the Week: 2007 Nissan Maxima SL 38k $19,897


I chose this car because this Maxima is really clean! I drove it yesterday around to take some pictures because it is such a good deal and I was really impressed with how nice it is inside and out. The Maximas have been in the large car market for almost 30 years now and they have just got better and better with time. The new Nissan 3.5 liter V6 makes plenty of power and the new continuously variable transmission returns good gas mileage.

2011 Hyundai Elantra Ward's Top 10 Best Interior

The Hyundai Elantra has been getting a lot of attention lately. MSN has rated the Elantra in the top 10 most beautiful cars and now the interior has made the Wards 10 Best Interior list! TrueCar has also ranked the Elantra in the top 10 for fuel efficiency! So inside and out the Elantra is a winner! That might have something to do with 2011 Elantras flying off out lot. We are taking pre-purchase deposits on the compact because we can't keep them on the lot! The car drives great, has the best warranty, and the best gas mileage! Hyundai is doing right again - did you hear that David Letterman?

2012 Hyundai Azera Beauty

This post doesn't really have a point other than to point out how beautiful this car is. I was thinking about this segment (large car/entry level luxury) and the cars that the new Azera would compete with. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder of course but I can't think of a car that looks better. The Acura RL with it's weird nose, the Lexus ES looks like it has been the same car for the past 15 years now, and the Avalon is as boring as it gets. The new Azera I think hits this bland category square between the eyes with a fresh face and a list of standard features. Well done Hyundai!

Seinfeld Car Salesman Clip

Some people have come into the dealership and joked about this episode with me but I never actually have seen it until now. This is really funny because a lot of people actually feel like this when they come in to the dealership. The best advice I could give someone who feels like this is realize that salespeople don't have magical powers that will overpower you into a trance and make you buy something. There are some strange salespeople out there that you would think they are trying though. HAHAHAHAHA Enjoy the clip!

Facets of Faith: Synergy

I think everyone wishes they could be a better person - a better spouse, a better parent, a better friend, a better citizen, and for some a better disciple of Jesus Christ. Life sometimes gets crazy and we forget who we are, what we are supposed to do, what we believe, and who we are trying to follow. I know that I should treat others with kindness and charity but for some reason when I get cut off on the road by a maniac driver I don't remember that I am a follower of the Savior. It hard not to have a "disconnect" with

2012 Hyundai Veloster Turbo

This just in - Hyundai will turbo the 1.6 liter GDi 4 cylinder that will be found in the new sports hatch. The 138 hp naturally aspirated four should be pretty peppy with the new 6 speed or Dual Clutch system but how does 208 sound? A lot better right? Thats what everyone in the car world is thinking too! The Veloster Turbo has the means to compete with hot hatches across the globe with that kind of powertrain. As seen in the Sonata turbo the gas mileage difference may be very similar to more mainstream packages too. Hyundai hopes to acheive 40 mpg with the Veloster and the Turbo version might be close to that. Rumor has it that the new Hyundai Elantra Touring and even perhaps the Accent will also share the turbo motor. Stay tuned for more details as they arrive.

2012 Hyundai Accent Awesome Video

Really creative and a bit TRON-like but awesome!  The new Accent should be here late this year or early next year. It should be great competition for the likes of the Fit, Sonic, Versa, and Yaris.

Pre-Owned Deal of the Week: 2006 Nissan Frontier 4x4 SE Crew Cab $17,497



Good trucks are hard to find! My first truck was an old '81 Nissan 720 pickup. Nissan has had a great reputation for their trucks. You always see the older Nissan trucks still running around the streets because everyone loves them!  This '06 Nissan Frontier has been fully reconditioned in our service department. We have 3 dedicated buyers who only hand pick the nicest cars. We run every car through a Murdock Certified 145-point inspection. I tested the 4-wheel rive myself and

Macedone Miles Hits 10,000 Visitors

Macedone Miles has been a lot of fun to upkeep and refer to with friends. I am constantly looking for ways to improve the site to make it easier to navigate and read. 10,000 is a lot of people in a short period of time, with 5,000 people just last month! Macedone Miles has been to 101 countries now and 48 States. I was trying got hold out to post this until I hit all 50 states but for some reason Maine, Vermont are lagging behind! Thanks to all who follow the blog and everyone's comments are always welcomed.
