If you're in the market for a small SUV in Richmond, KY, we recommend the Hyundai Kona at Gates Hyundai. The Kona is a popular model because it has a plethora of advanced features and an attractive and functional design. Let's take a look at a few design features of the Kona.
The Kona has a sculpted body and sporty curves that give it a striking appearance. The Kona also comes with a cascading grille with a mesh pattern. The front of the SUV is equipped with LED Daytime Running Lights and LED headlights, and the side of the Kona has a black protective strip that visually connects the front to the rear.

A blind spot monitor is a driver-assist feature that helps keep drivers and passengers safe. Here at Gates Hyundai, we share a goal to offer useful information about the features of our vehicles to Richmond, KY shoppers, so let's find out more about a blind spot monitor.
With a blind spot monitor, sensors, radars, and/or cameras scan the driver's blind spot areas, and if a vehicle is quickly approaching, this system will send the driver visual and/or audible alerts. With high trims, a blind spot monitor may be a standard feature, and base and mid-level trims sometimes offer blind spot monitors as an available driver-assist feature.
Two studies by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety found that driver-assist features can substantially reduce the risk for lane-change collisions. One study found that driver-assist features, such as lane departure warning systems and blind spot systems, can reduce lane-change collisions by 11% and reduce injuries from lane-change accidents by 21%.
Jump starting a car is a neighborly thing to do in Richmond, KY, but you must do it safely. Today's blog post from Gates Hyundai can help.
Park your car near the drained vehicle. Each car must be in Park or Neutral, and their handbrakes must be engaged. After turning off your car, connect your positive cable to the positive terminal on the other car's battery. Next, connect the positive cable to your car's positive terminal. While at your car, clamp your negative cable to your negative terminal.
You're about to complete an electrical circuit, so please avoid touching the last metal clamp to your clothes or skin. Connect it to a metal piece near the other car's engine that cannot move. Cautiously return to your car. Start and rev it. After a minute, try starting the other car. You might need multiple tries. After several failed attempts, assume that the other car requires something other than a jump start.
Whether you want to buy a hatchback for form or function, you can't ignore the popularity of the Hyundai Elantra GT. The GT hits the road with impressive grace and can do so while carrying a decent amount of cargo.
The vehicle comes in two different trims. The standard Elantra GT presents a 2.0L GDI 4-cylinder engine that yields 161-hp. With the GT N Line 1.6L turbo engine delivers more power to the tune of 201-hp. The GT rides on 17-inch alloy wheels while the N Line has 18-inch ones. Determine your power requirements to figure out which one is best. The LED headlights provide a beam that illuminates the road with energy efficiency. The way the headlights weave into the design of the Elantra adds to the visuals. Everything looks sleek. The headlights tie into the safety features, too. The High Beam Assist (HBA) function dims the lights upon sensing oncoming traffic.
Whether going with the standard GT or the N Line, you want to take an Elantra out on a test drive. In the Richmond, KY region, the team at Gates Hyundai wants to help you here.
If you're in the market for a dog-friendly vehicle, then let us help at Gates Hyundai in Richmond, KY. Look for the following features that can help keep your dog safe and comfortable when you're on the go.
Check the back seat belts to ensure they can keep your dog's harness securely in place. You should also consider the shape of the back seat when you're looking for a vehicle that will accommodate your pet's needs. Small dogs may ride well in sculpted, bucket-shaped back seats, and large dogs may be more comfortable stretching out on a benchseat. If you have an older dog, look for a vehicle with a low back seat height so that it's easier on their joints.
You can further enhance your pup's ride with a host of available comfort features. Heated seats are available with certain vehicles and give your dog soothing warmth when the weather's cold, and a climate control system with customizable settings for the back seat can also help you keep your dog comfortable.
Remember back in the day when a loud car sounded cool? Today, that same car cannot only get you a traffic citation but can also be a sign of a bad exhaust. When the exhaust gets bad, it’s usually leaking and can cause harmful emissions to get inside the vehicle. Come to Gates Hyundai and get some tips on exhaust tips and how to recognize problems.
Here are some signs that you may have a leaking exhaust.
• You might hear a Popping or hissing when the vehicle’s engine is running.
• If you notice a vibration when you touch the foot pedals, steering wheel or car seat, it could be a bad exhaust.
• Smaller leaks may go unnoticed but can lead to bigger leaks.
• You may notice a reduction in gas mileage if you have an exhaust leak.
Give us a call or stop at our shop in Richmond. We can inspect and fix your exhaust system as well as provide any number of other automotive services.
Tire rotations are a very important part of your automobile's maintenance. Rotating tires involves changing the position of all of the tires on your vehicle to equalize wear.
The recommended frequency of tire changes for most vehicles is about every 5000 miles. This is around the same time as most vehicle's oil changes are required. While our qualified technician checks your tires, they can be evaluated for damage, low pressure, balancing, and tread depth. Our technicians here at Gates Hyundai are skilled to know which rotation cycle is needed based on whether your vehicle is front wheel drive, all wheel drive or four wheel drive.
Keeping your tires rotated properly will reduce wear on tread depth extending the life of your tires. Having properly rotated tires may also help brakes work more efficiently. Have your next rotation here at Gates Hyundai.
Trading in or refinancing your current vehicle is a big decision, but certain factors in the buying equation could make it easier.
If your car is not in good mechanical condition, then that would serve better as a trade in. It may not have a high value towards the purchase of a new or pre-owned vehicle, but it will give you something. On the other hand, if the terms of your original loan are not great, it is worth your while to refinance it to get a better interest rate. This is particularly true if your credit score has improved since the original purchase of the vehicle.
Getting a lower interest rate will obviously lower your payments. And, Gates Hyundai's team of finance specialists can help make that happen. They have helped many happy customers in Richmond get better interest rates and will work hard on your behalf to do the same.

When you press down the brake pedal in your automobile, a number of things happen to make the vehicle stop. One of those involves the brake pads in your car. Here is a run down of how brake pads work.
The role that brake pads play in the braking process is pretty simple. When you depress your brake pedal, the brake pads apply pressure to the rotor. The friction that results is what causes your vehicle to slow down and eventually stop. Because brake pads perform such a rigorous job, they tend to wear out long before other braking components do. It's a good idea to get them checked about every 5,000 miles, and they typically will need to be replaced after about 50,000 miles.
If you need to get your brake pads checked and/or replaced, come see the experienced and friendly auto service professionals at Gates Hyundai.
Engine and cabin air filters are what make you and your engine breathe efficiently. That's because when your cabin filter is clogged the air doesn't blow out of the vents as clearly or as clean. In the same sense, your engine doesn't take in air as well for combustion when the engine air filter is dirty.
When to Service Your Air and Cabin FiltersSometimes servicing the air filter means simply cleaning it out. For example, if you kick up a lot of dust then you could clog the engine air filter up, but that doesn't mean that it is used enough to replace quite yet. The same goes for your cabin filter. It is however always a good idea to replace your old and used filter every 20 thousand miles or so.
Visit Gates Hyundai for all of your vehicles air filter needs. We're here to answer questions from all customers in the Richmond area.
