Quebecer Racks Up One Million Km in 2008 Hyundai Elantra
A Quebec dealership recently agreed to trade, straight up, a 2020 Hyundai Kona for a 2008 Hyundai Elantra owned by a loyal customer. Why? Because the trade-in has a whopping 1 million km on the odometer.
Now here’s a drop-the-mic riposte to anyone who still doubts the reliability and durability of Hyundai vehicles. A Quebec man by the name of Jocelyn Roy recently brought his trusty old 2008 Elantra in to the dealer he bought it from, used, in 2011, to trade it in for a new Hyundai Kona. Roy, a delivery man, wanted to get a newer car with an automatic transmission.
Nothing remarkable there, except for the fact that the 2008 Elantra was just about to hit the one-million mark on its odometer.
When Roy picked up the pre-owned car back in 2011, the odometer already had 30,000 km on it. In the years that followed, he put an average of 107,000 km on it annually as part of his work.
