2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Milwaukee

Looking for a sharp SUV inside and out.  Check out the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport at John Amato Hyundai Superstore in Milwaukee.

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is sized between the three row Santa Fe and the Tucson.  This year’s Sport takes a little from each model to round out its potion as Hyundai’s popular 2 row SUV.

Despite being mechanically unchanged from last year’s model, this year it received new front fascia, headlights, trim panels, taillights, rear fascia and more.

In total the design has matured in the Santa Fe Sport into something closer to the redesigned Tucson.   The Sport is still rated the best looking of the Hyundai crossover SUV trio.  It has hexagonal grille bracketed in place with coordinated fog-lamps trimmed with LED lighting.  The side sills stand out in relief up and over the rear wheel wells, and the rear door handles sit will back of the rear wheel openings.

The interior of the Sport is further refined from the previous years.  Hyundai is stuffing the Santa Fe Sport with more available technology.  Which includes an available 8 inch touch screen  and electrolunenescent gauges

The base engine that comes in the Santa Fe Sport is a 2.4 liter inline 4 that is also used in the Hyundai Sonata.  The engine makes 185 horsepower.  It is equipped with a direct injection that is paired with a 6 speed automatic.

In terms of SUV size, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is in the middle of the pack when compared to other SUV in its class.  It is close in size to the Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4, Jeep Cherokee and Chevrolet Equinox.  It does have a slightly larger wheel base than the Ford Escape.

The Santa Fe Sport has more room than most of its rivals.  It has great leg room and knee room for the taller drivers.  The seats have sufficient bolstering on the bottom cushion and well shaped backrests.  Power seat is standard on most versions.

The rear seats splits and folds to flex in its available space.  The seats fold into a 40/20/20  which means that the middle section can give way to narrow objects without losing seating space.

Hyundai Brake Assist is an active vehicle safety system designed to assist drivers in stopping their vehicle more quickly, when an emergency situation arises.  Studies have proven that in emergency stopping situations, almost half of all drivers fail to apply the brakes quickly enough or hard enough to use all of the braking  power their vehicle offers.  A brake assist system recognizes the signs of an emergency braking situation and add its support to the driver and the braking system.

How does  Hyundai Brake Assist Work?

Many consumers have seen Hyundai Brake Assist advertised but do not know how it works.  The answer is simple- the brake- assist system by Hyundai is designed to secure control of the vehicle and shorten braking distance in emergency stopping situations,  It does this by optimizing the distribution of the power to the brakes between the rear and front wheels, as their weight relates to rapid changes in the vehicle weight.  The brake override system makes the engine return to idle, and gives the braking system priority in the event of the driver, in a panic, stepping on both the brake and accelerator pedals at the same time.  The brake assist system increases the power to the brakes and shorten stopping distance in the event of emergency.  The traction control system stops the wheels from slipping, as well as maximizing the power of the vehicle to climb or accelerate.  All of these systems together assure a Hyundai driver of the ability to stop better and faster, and possibly negate the effects of an accident.

 

When is Brake Assist Important?

You might think that you have quick reflexes or have the ability to handle all of the situations on the road but people appreciate extra when they need it.  When brake assist is there for you in the event of an emergency stopping  situation , to assist you and your vehicle to stop quickly and safely.

Vehicle Repossession Facts from Amato Automotive

When you finance a vehicle, the lender holds certain rights on the vehicle until you make  your final loan payment.  This means that if you default on the contract by missing payments, the lender may have the right to repossess the vehicle.  If you are having financial trouble, contact your lender immediately.  Do not wait until you have missed more than 1 payment.  The lender may not need a court order or give advance warning to repossess the vehicle.  In some cases the lender may have the right to repossess after one missed payment

Before the vehicle is repossessed

You may be able to afford the payments by decreasing your expenses or increasing your income.  Review your budget and carefully look it over.

If you are unable to make budget changes that will enable you to afford your monthly payments you do have a few options

  • You can contact the lender and ask for assistance
  • If you can get more than you owe on the loan, you may choose to sell the vehicle
  • You may give the vehicle back to the lender.  This is called a voluntary repossession.

Do not be afraid to contact your lender.  In most cases, they want you to repay the loan. The earlier that you make contact with them the better.

When you took out the loan, you promised to make the payments as agreed.  However you may ask the lender what can be done to assist your situation

If your vehicle gets repossessed

If you are unable to make an arrangement with you lender and do not make your payments, eventually they can take the next step and hire someone to repossess the vehicle.  Once that happens, you have the right to reinstate the contract by paying all past due installments, late fees, and cost the lender has incurred in repossessing and storing of the vehicle

If you are unable to reinstate the contract, the lender will then sell the vehicle at auction.  They will notify you of the auction date, and you may attend and bid on the vehicle.  Whether you or someone else buys the vehicle you are responsible for the deficiency balance that the vehicle sells for.  A deficiency balance is the difference between the amount that you owe on the loan and the price the vehicle sells for plus repossession, storage and auction costs.

The deficiency balance is an unsecured debt. Some lenders may sue for the sum, while others may forgive it.  If the lender does forgive it, the IRS will consider that amount income and assess taxes due.
