Hyundai Holds Up
Hyundai-Nissan-Acura store, says Fox, "is just not off as much." In fact, despite the credit clampdown, he actually ran short of Acura SUVs over the winter.
This spring, he's seen a lot of traffic-"I'm not saying sales, I'm saying traffic"-in response to Hyundai's "assurance plus" campaign, which offers to temporarily cover payments if buyers lose their income. And he's got another ace in the hole: "the Hyundai Kia technical center [in Superior Township]-we see a lot of employees or engineers that work there. I have a salesperson who's Asian and speaks three dialects of Chinese."
