HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA REPORTS SEPTEMBER SALES

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 2, 2007 – Hyundai Motor America today reported 33,214 sales for the month of September. The fuel-efficient Accent and the all-new Santa Fe led the month with sales of 3,120 and 7,496, respectively, up 64 percent and 21 percent over September 2006. The new Veracruz continued to post strong sales with 1,653 units sold for the month.

“While we are encouraged with the strong sales of Accent and Santa Fe, our overall sales were flat versus 2006, reflecting the challenging economic climate and industry conditions,” said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America’s vice president, National Sales. “We just concluded a very successful dealer meeting, and as our 2008 models begin to arrive on our dealer’s lots, we are quite optimistic about having a successful fourth quarter.”

All Hyundai vehicles sold in the U.S. are covered by The Hyundai Advantage, America’s Best Warranty. Hyundai buyers are protected by a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, a 7-year/unlimited-mile anti-perforation warranty and 5-year/unlimited-mile roadside assistance protection.
