Gary Rome Customer Testimonials


I would just like to let you know how very satisfied my wife and I have been on our recent purchases from Gary Rome Hyundai.
I say purchases because, although not our original intention, we purchased 2 new cars from you in 2005. In March we purchased a Tucson for my wife and last month an XG350L for me.

The Tucson purchase was our first experience at your dealership. Carroll Perez was our sales representative. My wife, who "hates car shopping", and I both found him to be a pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable, patient, personable, open and honest. He did not fit my stereotype of a car salesman and I really appreciated that fact. A few days after we bought the Tucson we had to bring it in for its inspection sticker. Carroll greeted us as we drove in and made sure that everything was taken care of. Because the car would be tied up for a little while he got us a loaner so my wife and I could go out to breakfast. We felt very important to Gary Rome Hyundai.

When my son needed a new vehicle last month, I sold him my car (a 2003 Sonata by the way!), bought his and came back to Gary Rome Hyundai.
to look for a replacement vehicle for myself. I went straight to Carroll. With Hyundai's rebates and the very aggressive discounting Gary Rome Hyundai.
gave me I was able to leave the proud owner of a new XG350L. My second experience was easily as good as my first. My son, who came with me this time, commented afterward that he found the whole experience to be much different, better than he had expected.

We are now a 3 Hyundai family and love our vehicles. I recommend Hyundais and Gary Rome to anyone who will listen. Great cars and an honest, caring dealership. Thank you Gary, for creating an environment where the customer really does feel like he comes first.

Sincerely, Cliff Howard

Hyundai Dealer Gary Rome Hyundai


FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., July 18, 2005- The all-new 2006 Hyundai Sonata beat Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, its primary competitors in the mid-size sedan segment, and took first place in an Edmunds.com Inside Line comparison test yesterday. Edmunds.com reported, "In the end, it wasn't even close . . . in the areas of performance and features, the Hyundai won in a landslide . . . Bottom Line: With the 2006 Sonata, Hyundai convincingly beats the long-standing class leaders in nearly every important category." Edmunds.com is a leading automotive Web site providing consumers with valuable information on the industry's top vehicles. To read the full review, click here.

"We were looking for the family sedan priced under $22,000 with the best combination of passenger accommodations, safety and luxury features, performance, overall quality and value," said John DiPietro, Road Test Editor at Edmunds.com Inside Line. "Taking all of these factors into account, the Hyundai Sonata came out on top."

2006 Sonatas began rolling off the assembly line of Hyundai's new manufacturing plant in Montgomery, Ala., in April. The all-new Sonata was designed specifically to meet the needs of the American consumer and is the product of three years of intensive collaborative development at Hyundai's global R&D operations, including those in Michigan and California. It is the first and only mid-size sedan sold in America to offer one of the industry's most effective and sophisticated safety technologies, Electronic Stability Control, as standard equipment.

Edmunds.com praised the all-new Sonata for its roomy interior (classified by the U.S. government as a "large car," a full class above Camry and Accord), smooth V6 engine, segment-leading standard safety technology, and strong value. "In the real world, the Sonata shines. The well-tuned suspension smothers the bumps and keeps its composure in turns without drama, and its tuning falls between the firm Accord and cushy Camry. There's plenty of power for effortless merging and passing, and the brakes are a strong ally in the daily grind. And let's not forget the standard stability control, unusual in the segment, and the huge 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty." Edmunds.com concluded, "With the Sonata handily dethroning the twin kings of the family sedan segment, Hyundai has shown that, beyond a doubt, it's ready to take a starring role on the automotive stage. Nice job, Hyundai."
