Kyle and Andrew purchased my car off Autotrader for a very reasonable price. They were kind and efficient. Very clean and welcoming environment.

Went to the service dept for a factory recall on my 2005 Tucson ... gas tank band replacement ... by appointment. They put a Tech on it right away and I was back on the road in under 30 minutes. Got to take a look at some of the 2018 cars and the new owner came up and introduced himself. Nice guy and very welcoming. After a bit, l sat down in the very comfortable waiting room with complimentary beverages and a TV. In the blink of an eye the service Tech came in with my car key in hand and he walked me to my car with friendly well wishes. Who knew that I would leave feeling like I had been treated like royalty when taking my car in for a no charge repair? Five stars for sure!!

Shay Reed helped my fiancee and I pick up a new car and he was incredibly helpful and went out of his way to make sure we were informed about the specifics of the vehicle before we made our decision. He wasn't pushy at all and we got a killer deal on the car. Seriously, go see him if you're looking for a new car.

Our car had 5 recalls and maintenance team at Larry H. Miller Hyundai took the best care of us. While working on our car, they have found some additional much needed repairs to be done, which was taken care of the same day. Especially great was the service and commitment provided by service writer Robert Storseth. He made us feel valued and was very respectful. This has been a good experience because of friendliness and willingness to help provided by Robert. Thank you!
