The Hyundai My First Vehicle Program
Get it right the first time!
Are you thinking of getting your very first vehicle? This can be both really exciting and stressful at the same time because the decision bears a lot of weight on you. As a first time buyer, you have to decide on a budget, the type of car to meet your needs, and the brand of the car. The Hyundai My First Vehicle Program has been put in place to help you throughout your decision-making process. The main goal of this program is to take some of the pressure off your shoulders by providing you with simple and flexible financing plans to allow you to get approved much more easily. If you’re a student, for example, then this program might be perfect for you.
Who is eligible for the program?
In order to qualify for this program, you must meet the following requirements:
- It must be your first time buying a car (not having any prior purchases or leases)
- You must have a good credit score (we are able to check this for you)
- You must show us proof of income
What options are available?
Being a first-time buyer, you get to decide what type of car will best fit your needs and budget, be it new or pre-owned. You are free to choose to buy a brand-new Hyundai car from the great selection 2017 Hyundai sedans and SUVs, like the 2017 Elantra, one of the most popular and fuel-efficient small sedans on the market. Or you can purchase a used vehicle from our certified pre-owned vehicles. These used cars undergo meticulous inspections in order to ensure their reliability and your safety.
Hyundai vehicles come with industry-leading warranties to reassure you that much more in your decision. Our 5 year/100,000 km comprehensive limited warranty includes benefits like roadside assistance, powertrain warranty, emissions coverage, replacement parts and more.

Following up on a successful Operation 200 promotion, where Kelowna Hyundai and Buy Direct Truck Centre donated $10,100 to the new Interior Heart and Surgical Centre in April, the two dealerships decide to reward one lucky customer with $10,000 cash.
On July 9, 2014, the giveaway was held as a reverse draw, with a 1 out of 100 chance of winning the grand prize, and 9 out of 100 chance of winning other prizes ranging from $50 gift cards to $250 gift cards. For those customers who didn’t win prizes, they got to snack on refreshments, listen to live music, and embrace the enthusiasm of the other guests.
The goal of the $10,000 cash giveaway was to reward one lucky customer for their loyalty, and provide an entertaining night for the other eligible customers. The lucky winner was Henrick Dekline, who was represented by his father-in-law Randy.
“It was a great event because we got to acknowledge our customers, and we know without them our business wouldn’t be successful,” said John Kot, President of Kelowna Hyundai and Buy Direct Truck Centre.
With such excellent feedback from attending customers, John and his partner, Guy Lemieux, decided to host the same event at their dealership down by the coast, Maple Ridge Hyundai.
Maple Ridge Hyundai will now be closed Sunday’s (effective July 1st) so that employees can enjoy the day with their families. With our open gate policy, we encourage customers to browse through our extensive inventory online and on site, and email us with any questions. We will be happy to respond to all inquiries first thing Monday. Happy Sunday!
As of May 1, 2014, Maple Ridge Hyundai is under new ownership. John Kot and Guy Lemieux, current owners and managing partners of Kelowna Hyundai and Buy Direct Truck Centre, are the new owners of Maple Ridge Hyundai. Their strong commitment to customer service and exceeding expectations, motivates them to make Maple Ridge Hyundai one of the most successful dealerships in British Columbia.
Both John and Guy will be sharing their time between Kelowna and Maple Ridge, to guarantee their dealerships are running to the standard they have set in place since opening Kelowna Hyundai in 2011.

Hyundai Highest Ranked Non-Luxury Brand as Genesis, Elantra, and Accent Top their Segments in 2014 J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality Study
MARKHAM, Ontario (June 18, 2014) – J.D. Power today recognized Hyundai as the top-performing non-luxury brand for initial quality and presented three Hyundai vehicles – 2014 Genesis, 2014 Elantra and 2014 Accent – their highest award in their respective segments in the U.S. Hyundai ranked fourth overall in initial quality, climbing six spots from last year. In total, Hyundai had six vehicles in the Top Three positions in their segments, including two second place finishes for Santa Fe and Sonata and a third-place finish for Equus. This year’s results mark the third time Hyundai has been the highest-ranked non-luxury brand in the past 10 years, and the third time it finished among the Top Four brands overall.
The award comes from the J.D. Power 2014 U.S. Initial Quality StudySM (IQS). Now in its 28th consecutive year, IQS is the industry benchmark for new-vehicle quality, measured at 90 days of ownership.
“Receiving IQS awards in multiple vehicle segments acknowledges Hyundai’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction across our entire product lineup, not just our luxury vehicles,” said Don Romano, President and CEO, Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. “Today’s awards are a true reflection of the hard work and dedication of all the Hyundai team members in our factories around the globe.”
The IQS serves as the industry benchmark for new-vehicle quality and has proven to be an excellent predictor of long-term reliability, which may significantly impact new-vehicle purchase decisions. The focus of the study is model-level performance and comparison of individual models to similar models in respective segments, which helps manufacturers worldwide to design and produce higher-quality vehicles.
In addition to victories in three vehicle segments, the Hyundai brand substantially reduced problems per 100 vehicles and finished fourth overall, gaining six rank positions compared with 2013. The Hyundai overall score was 94 problems per 100 vehicles, 12 fewer than last year and 22 fewer problems than the industry average which actually deteriorated three problems per 100 compared with 2013. Also, Genesis scored back-to-back segment while Accent, with a mere 65 problems-per-100, was the second highest performing vehicle in the study.

Designed to excel in colder temperatures, slush, snow and ice, winter tires are an important investment in safer winter driving.
Did you know that all-season tires begin to lose their effectiveness once temperatures fall below 7 degrees Celsius? That’s because the rubber used in all-season tires lose their flexibility and stiffen in the cold weather, making them more prone to slipping and sliding on slush, ice and snow.
For a safer winter driving experience, it is recommended to install winter tires on all four wheels.
For more information about the importance of winter tires or to schedule an appointment to have them installed, please call Kelowna Hyundai to speak to one of our knowledgeable Service Advisors.
