This is a reputable company that deals with all kinds of cars. Our salespeople know all kinds of cars, their features, specs, and even the drawbacks customers need to checkout for. In short, we will help you choose the perfect car within your budget, needs, and uses.

For example, one of our favorite and recommendable mid-sized family cars that happens to be affordable is the 2017 Hyundai Sonata SE. Let us look into the details of the features, specs, and advantages you read when you buy this car from our yard.

Overview of 2017 Hyundai Sonata SE

As I mentioned, this is a mid-sized car, a five-seater. So, it is a good option for small to medium-sized families. The car is also quite roomy since it comfortably sits three people at the back and two in front, including the driver. The car's interior is gorgeous, and the seats are made of leather, so maintenance is easy for you. It is an affordable car, especially for people who may opt for a second car option, and we can't ignore the fact that it is economical. So, if you are also looking for a fuel-efficient car for daily use, considering now fuel has gone high, this is a good investment. The carriage at the trunk is roomy, so if you are a traveling person, I believe this car will not inconvenience you. Lastly, this is an automatic vehicle, so even beginners will have an easy time maneuvering it in the city.

Special features

Fuel

The vehicle consumes 1.6 liters, so it is a fuel-efficient vehicle for people who needs a car to drive daily.

7-inch touch screen display

Who wants to struggle to navigate GPS or change the playlist in the car while driving? This vehicle is made with a large 7-inch screen with a touch screen mode of control for easy settings and navigating while on the road.

It supports Apple and Android auto-play.

Whether you want to integrate your apple or android device to listen to your favorite playlist, this car supports both smartphone models.

Six speaker stereo

We all have different preferences, and I believe some people cannot drive without their music playing on full blast. So, to accommodate such people, this vehicle is equipped with a six-speaker stereo essential for providing good music audios in the car.

Bluetooth and USB connection

Bluetooth is useful when integrating your phone into the car to make a call or even listen to the music saved on the phone. There are other ports for connection if you wish to charge your phone on the car cigarette.

Rearview camera

The rearview dash camera makes parking this car mainly in busy spaces easy. It also records all the happening on the road for safety and for you to preview your day-to-day drives.

Keyless start

When we talk about an upgrade of a car, this 2017 Hyundai Sonata SE is no exception. It features the keyless button start mode, the smooth and fastest way to start a car.

Automatic climate regulation

You don't need to put on your AC when the climate changes as this car adapts to different weather changes. This means that when it gets extremely hot, the car will automatically cool the temperatures, and if it is cold, it will provide warm surroundings.

Safety features

The front seats of this car are equipped with thick airbags, and all seats are equipped with seatbelts for the safety of everyone in the car. Other safety features you will enjoy include; the cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, plus brakes and headlights function well. It has an emergency braking and rear parking sensor to help you park in areas with other cars or objects.

Roomy interiors

The vehicle is a five-seater with three seats at the back and two in front. The front seats can incline and decline to provide enough space, and we can say the back area also has reasonable space. However, the headroom of the backspace is not that big, so some people may find it uncomfortable to sit there.

Leather seats

Leather seats are easy to maintain as they need wiping with a cloth, and you will be good to go. If you have small kids who tend to be messy, I bet it will be easy to maintain the seats as you need to wipe them.

Roomy trunk

The trunk storage space measures 16.3 feet to accommodate a lot of cargo, maybe when traveling.

Jim Stansbury - 2018 Cadillac Escalade Luxury 4WD Review

-

The name Cadillac says it all.

When you heard the name Cadillac, you knew people were talking about a grand car. It was GM’s answer to luxury vehicles made by other companies. Plus, the Cadillac name has a long history for excellence, comfort, and style.

At Hartland Automotive Sales in Elkhart, Indiana, you will find the 2018 Cadillac Escalade and other Cadillac models. There is no doubt you will find the perfect car on our lot.

It is not a car, nor a truck but a grand SUV.

Comfort is still king when it comes to more modern Cadillac vehicles. This Escalade doesn’t let you down. Plus, no matter the type of road you travel, you will get a quiet ride. Just look at the specs to get the idea that there is more than comfort to this vehicle.

Under the hood is a V8 gas engine that gets roughly 14- 17 mpg in the city and up to 26 on the highway. Part of the credit is due to the 10-speed automatic that is paired with this motor. On one 26-gallon tank of gas, you should get up to 546 miles on the highway.

Then the 6.2L engine gives you 420 HP at 5600 RPM and 460 lb-ft of torque at 4100 RPM.

Towing ability & convenience

Everyone these days is looking at the towing ability of newer cars. This Escalade will not disappoint as there is more than enough power to tow 8100 pounds. it also has a payload capacity of 1420 pounds.

The power and towing ability do not take away from any comfort or convenience built into this fine car. You name it, this SUV should have it.

  • adjustable pedals

  • cruise control

  • parking assist

  • electric power steering

  • front & rear parking sensors

  • 3 rows of cup holders

  • sun sensor

  • and a lot more

This is not to mention the 3 zone climate control that makes sure you and your family are not bothered by the outside weather conditions. There is plenty of room inside for everyone, including your pet. The Escalade can seat 7 people.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of what this car has built into it. Make sure to get to Hartland Automotive Sales to see everything this car has to offer in the way of comfort, power, entertainment, and so on.

Entertainment

When you want to enjoy your long drive, this vehicle comes packed with entertainment options. Here are just a few of those items:

  • 16 total speakers- Bose premium brand

  • satellite radio service ready

  • USB connection with external media control

  • speed-sensitive volume control

  • surround sound

  • AM/FM stereo

This car is loaded with the right features to make sure when you drive to work or do errands, you get the best ride possible.

2018 Cadillac Escalade colors

One of the drawbacks to this vehicle is that the interior colors are a bit limited. You can get it in jet black or shale with jet black highlights. Not a lot of choice there.

However, the exterior is far different. You can get a choice between 9 colors and each one makes this car look good. In addition, there are 3 different trim styles, Luxury, Platinum, & Premium and they come in two models each.

What people are saying

This is an SUV that is an acquired taste. Not everyone will like it or the lack of interior color selection. For some people, color is the most important aspect and the Escalade only delivers on the exterior portion of the vehicle.

One reviewer loved the Escalada and called it the best model made. They may have gotten the best model to come off the production line as not everyone shares that opinion.

There is another reviewer who does take the opposite view and says it is the worst one yet. They point to a faulty transmission that had to be replaced far too soon as well as other defects that they said kept their model in the repair shop for 2 months in one year.

Other people feel that GM did its customers a disservice by putting the body on a pick-up chassis. They claim the ride is not that great and the luxury items inside are just sugar coating.

But people have different opinions as another reviewer could not say enough about this vehicle. The Escalade got from 0 to 60 in 6.1 seconds showing off its power. They liked the magnetic shocks and felt those provided the driver with better handling.

Finally, they liked the space, the comfort, and the luxury saying it is more than just a superficial sugar coating.

2018 Cadillac Escalade Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • lots of power under the hood

  • luxurious interior

  • quick acceleration

  • tows up to 8300 pounds

  • The payload capacity of 1420 pounds

  • a very quiet ride

  • 10-speed automatic transmission (shiftable)

  • 4 WD that gets good gas mileage

Cons:

  • a very high price tag

  • ride not as comfortable as other SUVs in its class

  • maybe a bit hard to handle for some people

  • some steering issues may arise

  • high, uneven cargo floor- a hassle to load items in the back

  • brakes could be better

When you want luxury & class

The Cadillac name still means something in the 21st century. It is a name that tells you that you are getting something extra. The 2018 Escalade is providing you with something extra.

You get extra comfort, extra quiet ride, extra convenience, and extra entertainment. Plus, you get more power than you thought possible for an SUV of that caliber and class.

Jim Stansbury - 2013 HYUNDAI SONATA LIMITED AUTO

-

Whenever a customer comes to our car sales shows at Hartland Automotive Sales looking for a mid-sized vehicle for personal or family use, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited Auto is one of the top cars we show to our customers. It was also remodeled in 2011, with additional features like a button starter. It is a classy car that is economical and good for city use. If you are torn between the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited Auto and other car models, you are in the right place. We will provide a detailed review of this car and why we have it in our showroom, so you can make a good decision before acquiring it.

Overview

2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited Auto is a mid-sized vehicle that is a five-seater. The car is accessible from 4 different points, considering it has four doors, two on each side. The car is quite economical as it only consumes 2.0 liters of gas. So, for those looking for a vehicle that they can save on gas, this is a good choice.

It is a classy car that comes in varying colors to choose from. The 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited Auto is an advanced car model from the previous one with additional features like a push-button starter.

The 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited Auto has four-cylinder engines, one of the few things we don't like since it does not perform well on highways. It is an automatic car so navigating through, even for beginners, is relatively easy. Overall, this is a classy vehicle worth investing in.

Main specs

  • Passengers: Can carry five people

  • Entry doors: It has four doors

  • Car transmission: It has an automatic 6-speed car

  • Engine: 4 cylinder engines turbocharged gas

  • Mileage 22mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway

Key features

Here are some of the primary key features we love about this 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited Auto you should know before buying it;

It has a button starter.

The first thing that you will notice on this car is the mode of starting it. As we had mentioned earlier, this is an upgraded model with added features, and one of them is the button starter. So, unlike the classic cars that require keys to start, in the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited Auto, you need to press the button to get it started.

Roomy interior

This is a relatively large vehicle compared to other mid-sized cars. It can accommodate five people, two on the front side (including the driver) and three with standard body size at the back. We can say the head and feet areas offer enough room to stretch, but the car may feel a bit short for tall folks. Some tall people may not get enough headroom, especially those seated at the back.

Features all connection parts

This is a fantastic car with all you need for your connection purposes. To listen to your favorite music from an external device like a smartphone, pair it with the Bluetooth of the car. It takes little time to pair as well. Also, USB ports ensure the connection between the vehicle and other devices is easy. Do you want to charge your phone while on the move? The car has a port for charging devices through the car cigarette.

Features a car parking sensor (dashcam)

This is a great car that will aid you in parking mainly in congested areas. The car parking sensor gives you directions on how to move your vehicle when parking to avoid accidents. So, I bet this feature will fit you as a beginner car owner.

Automatic climate adjustment

Another feature that we love about this vehicle is that the interior seats are heated such that during the cold seasons or early in the morning, you will not need to worry about turning on your AC. This could be because the car is made so that it adjusts to climatic changes. So, when scorched hot on the outside, it will keep you cool and vice versa.

Has sunproof design

You will enjoy the sleek interior of your car for a very long time as it is not exposed to the sunlight. This car is crafted with sunproof materials that block a high percentage of UV rays from reaching your vehicle's interior. So, you will not have to deal with the chairs fading or the interior getting extremely hot when you park outside.

Pros

  • This car is made of solid and durable materials to offer value for money

  • You can get it in different colors

  • The vehicle features safety parts like a child lock, airbags on the front seats

  • It has a dashcam that aids with parking

  • It has a roomy interior

  • The car is made with sunproof materials

  • It is easy to start with the button

  • It is a smooth ride with good mpg on rims

Cons

  • The steering is a bit disappointing as it keeps on loosening

  • The seats are not padded and feel flat

  • The back area may not offer enough headroom for tall people

  • The engine is not too reliable when riding on highways

Now that you have all this information, is the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited Auto?

2011 Volkswagen Tiguan

With a top-notch cabin and European driving qualities, the 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan provides a unique flavor in a vanilla class.

Vehicle overview

The 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan fills a void between popular crossover SUVs and luxury vehicles, combining affordability and practicality with upmarket features and brand awareness. The big question is: Is it possible to have a car that is both popular and high-end? The quick response is "maybe," which is a waffling one.

The interior of the VW Tiguan is a refreshing change from the standard compact crossover's plastic-trimmed cabin. The interior materials in this VW are on par with premium brands like Audi in terms of quality, while the cabin's strong structure outshines that of its class competitors. Even on the road, the Tiguan exhibits a certain level of refinement. The Tiguan is, in a single word, European when compared to its competitors.

Volkswagen's Tiguan is midway between the Touareg SUV and the Golf hatchback in terms of design. This year's Tiguan looks a little different, with a revised grille the most noticeable change. Other than this, the only significant change for 2011 is that the Wolfsburg Edition trim level is no longer available. Our favorite thing about the Tiguan is not just its looks but also its exciting driving dynamics, and we're happy to see Volkswagen continue to deliver on that promise with the compact crossover.

The 2011 VW Tiguan, on the other hand, is a little short on space and utility. Volkswagen's Tiguan offers much less passenger and cargo space than Honda's CR-V and Toyota's RAV4 models from 2011 and 2011, respectively. Although the VW's maximum load capacity is 25 percent less than that of its larger Japanese competitors, even when the rear seats are folded down, the VW still falls short. A different product would be a better choice for buyers who value functionality above all else.

In contrast, buyers who prioritize quality and refinement will find the 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan an attractive option. Although some of Tiguan's competitors, such as the 2011 Hyundai Tucson and 2011 Kia Sportage, have adopted Tiguan's blend of elegance and refinement. We think it's best to look at all of the other options before saying "maybe" to the 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan.

The Best of 2011

The 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan receives only a slight facelift, and a few features shuffle among versions, along with the removal of the Wolfsburg Edition trim.

Performance & mpg

The turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 engine in the 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan generates 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. An all-wheel drive is an option on the SE and SEL, but it's standard on the lower trims. The Tiguan S comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, while a six-speed automatic is available and standard on the SE and SEL models.

An all-wheel-drive SEL tested by Edmunds went from zero to sixty miles per hour in 8.4 seconds, which is about on par with other crossovers in its class. When equipped with the automatic transmission, both the front- and all-wheel-drive models achieve an EPA-estimated combined fuel economy of 22 miles per gallon in combination, while the S trim's basic manual achieves 19/26/22.

Safety

Antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front side airbags, and side curtain airbags are all included as standard on the Tiguan. When it comes to braking, Edmunds found that the Tiguan 4Motion all-wheel drive came to a stop from 60mph in 126 feet. The 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan received a perfect five-star rating in all front and side collision categories in government testing. When it comes to frontal offset, side-strength, and roof-strength testing, Volkswagen's Tiguan was rated "Good" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Driving

The 2011 VW Tiguan's turbocharged four-cylinder engine may not offer the most remarkable acceleration in the segment, but its torquey power delivery makes it seem energetic when passing slower vehicles in town or while driving on the highway. The Tiguan has a calm and steady demeanor when cornering, absorbing bumps, and ruts with ease. Steel frame and heavy-duty dampers give it added sturdiness on bumpy routes.

The electrically assisted steering on the 2011 Tiguan is comparable to a traditional hydraulic-assist arrangement for the most part. As speed increases, the steering effort gradually climbs to a level that is not taxing on even the slenderest of arms. The brake pedal doesn't require a lot of effort either, as it provides a lot of stopping power with just a small push.

Interior

The 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan, like the rest of the Volkswagen portfolio, has a luxurious interior with a level of craftsmanship that rivals that of an Audi. Premium materials, fine workmanship, and even metal trim add to the luxurious atmosphere. Navigating via the system is quick and easy to use thanks to large screens and well-placed controls.

No matter how many miles you put on your car during a road trip or how many curves you negotiate on the interstate, having supportive, well-shaped seats is a need. Rear passengers and baggage may be transported in the Tiguan's 60/40 split-folding rear seats, which have a center cargo pass-through. The backrest of the rear seat can be adjusted to provide more baggage capacity or more rear legroom. The Tiguan can fit 23.8 cubic feet of goods if the back seats are pushed all the way forward. If you fold down the second row, you get 56.1 cubic feet of room, which is a little less than the space in the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.

2011 Volkswagen Tiguan models

The 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan comes in three trim levels: S, SE, and SEL. All-wheel-drive, automatic climate control, air conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, keyless entry, leather upholstery, eight-way manually adjustable front seats, Bluetooth, and a CD player with an auxiliary audio port are all included as standard equipment on the entry-level S model.

17-inch wheels and chrome exterior trim are standard on the SE trim level. Foglight's and a roof rack are also included. The SE also features a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, heated washer nozzle, and power driver's seat. It also has heated front seats and leatherette vinyl upholstery. It also has a trip computer and an iPod interface. 18-inch wheels, a sunroof that opens, and GPS directions are all included with the SE's Sunroof and Navigation option.

Jim Stansbury - 2008 Toyota Tundra Base

-

A lot of people nowadays prefer to buy old automobiles rather than new ones, and this trend is expected to continue in the future. This is since used automobiles for sale are readily available, inexpensive, and valued. Even so, it's possible to get a good used automobile if you buy it from a reputable dealership. And Hartland Automotive Sales has simplified the process for anyone considering purchasing a used automobile; we only offer the highest-quality vehicles that are well-worth the money you spend. Late model, low mileage used vehicles are available from Hartland Automotive Sales. All varieties of credit are welcome to apply for financing at our company. Salespeople at Hartland Automotive are aware that not everyone has the money to buy the car of their dreams right away. As a result, we provide a variety of payment alternatives to suit your specific requirements. You don't need a set amount of money to buy a car from us, either. Paying with cash is your sole choice when buying directly from a private seller.

2008 Toyota Tundra Base 5.7L 2WD

Since being completely rebuilt in 2008, the Toyota Tundra has seen a few small tweaks, including a "Tundra Grade" option for all body types and a few new standard features for the SR5 and Limited trim levels. It is a two-wheel drive pickup truck, the Toyota Tundra 2wd-crewmax 5.7 L Limited of 2008. Passengers can fit up to five in this vehicle. Automatic transmission and manual mode are both available, and the vehicle has four doors and a 5.7L V8 DOHC 32-valve engine good for 381 horsepower at 5600 rpm. Toyota's 2008 Tundra 2wd-crewmax 5.7 L Limited tows a whopping 2485 kilograms and has a load capacity of liters. The anti-lock brake system, stability control, and traction control are all standard features on the 2008 Toyota Tundra 2wd-crewmax 5.7 L Limited (ABS). An optional engine is also available for the vehicle. A rearview camera and a parking distance sensor are included.

Performance & MPG of Toyota Tundra

This year's Toyota Tundra is equipped with three engines. The 4.0-liter V6 engine, rated at 236 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, comes standard on the Tundra Regular Cab and standard-bed Double Cab. The 4.7-liter V8 with 271 horsepower and 313 lb-ft of torque is standard on all other Tundra's but is available as an option on these versions. All Tundra's come standard with a 5.7-liter V8 that produces 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. The base V6 and 4.7-liter V8 have a five-speed automatic transmission, while the 5.7 V8 has a six-speed automatic. In our testing, a Double Cab Limited 4WD Tundra with the powerful 5.7-liter V8 engine reached speeds of 60 miles per hour in 6.3 seconds. There are two- and four-wheel drive options for the Tundra, as well as a limited-slip rear differential in all models. A 4x2 Tundra Regular Cab can tow up to 10,800 pounds when properly equipped.

Safety Of Toyota Tundra

There are antilock disc brakes, traction control, stability control, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags that are standard. For frontal impact tests, the Tundra received four out of five possible stars in federal crash testing. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Tundra its best possible rating in frontal offset collision testing: "Good."

Toyota Tundra Driving

The 2008 Toyota Tundra's 5.7-liter V8 is tremendously strong, and the engine's delivery is smooth and effortless. Six-speed automatic transmission shifts quickly, but the console shifter's precise action lets drivers employ the manual mode even when facing steep freeway hills or harsh off-road conditions.

However, the Tundra's smooth and silent interstate ride isn't quite as enjoyable for those who like a more rugged driving experience on rain-grooved expressways. Light, precise steering makes parking spaces easier to navigate but may be too light for certain drivers on interstates. Even though the Tundra has a little advantage over the competition when it comes to cornering predictability and low body roll. In terms of braking, the Tundra is a solid performer thanks to its progressive pedal feel and decent stopping distances.

Interior Of Toyota Tundra

Inside the Tundra, it's clear that the creators prioritized usability and sturdiness over aesthetics. In addition to the spacious front seats, extensive storage places, and cup holders, this vehicle's build quality is top-notch. There is a great amount of harsh plastic trim because soft-touch surfaces are scarce. Because of the unique binnacle design, the appealing gauges are difficult to read. A long reach is required to operate the massive and well-organized center stack controls while driving a Tundra, even with a navigation system.

The Regular Cab's spacious interior and comfortable seats make it an excellent choice for families and small businesses alike. Adults have plenty of room in the backseat of a Double Cab, while the CrewMax has the most room in the back of any pickup truck. Legroom in the back is limo-like, with 44.5 inches of space to cross one's legs.

Due to their size, large trucks have traditionally had an aura of safety, but crash tests have not always validated that perception. Thanks to excellent crash-test ratings and an amazing set of safety features, the 2008 Toyota Tundra is the safest car in its class. The 2008 Toyota Tundra has received excellent ratings from both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). It received four out of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in front-impact safety testing for both the driver and the passenger. When equipped with four-wheel drive, the Toyota Tundra received four out of five ratings for rollover protection, whereas the two-wheel-drive models received just three out of five stars. For both frontal offset and side impact incidents, the 2008 Tundra receives the highest possible rating from the IIHS, "good." The 2008 Toyota Tundra was named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS because of its excellent safety features.

It can be frustrating finding a vehicle you can't live without having. You don't know where to go, how to deal with the staff, negotiate prices, and how to find the perfect vehicle. Hartland Automotive Sales will make it easier for you to navigate through everything. The best thing to do would be to go to their website and look through their list of cars for sale. As you're looking, one vehicle may jump out at you. The 2016 Jeep Compass Latitude FWD is the best vehicle that money can buy. It's best to know if it's the right car before you make a purchase.

Price

At retail, this beauty sells for a little over 18,000 dollars. Compared to other vehicles like this one, this one is the best deal. This price doesn't leave much room for negotiation because it has a reasonable price. There aren't any other vehicles that will match what this vehicle will offer you. As you read on, you'll see why.

Exterior Features

When you walk up to your new vehicle, you will have a keyless entry control in hand. A keyless entry control makes it easier for you to unlock and lock your car from a distance. The exterior of this vehicle will show you that it has four doors, but only two of them have handles to open the doors from the outside. This specific vehicle that Hartland Automotive has listed for sale is a beautiful cherry red. When you step inside the car and smell that new car smell, you'll notice several interior features that will have you sold on this vehicle.

Interior Features

You will notice that the seats are leather and are easy to keep clean. When you sit down, you may see that the steering wheel is too big or small for your comfort. Don't worry because you can adjust the steering wheel to ensure it will fit at a comfortable level when driving. Music may be the thing that will help you focus while on the road. You're in luck. This vehicle has a built-in CD player and a place to hook up an MP3 player. You can also adjust the radio station and save your favorite station so you can always go back to it no matter who drives your vehicle.

When you go to the back seat, the second row of seats will fold down to make it easier to store extra things in your trunk. The next point to make is the size of the trunk space. It is large and is great for traveling purposes. If you're a parent or a grandparent of a small child or two, this space is perfect to put in strollers, pack and plays, and anything else your child or grandchild needs.

These details may sound great so far, but more features haven't been brought to your attention yet. This vehicle has a sunroof, which is a feature you can't live without on beautiful days. Passengers will enjoy looking up at the sky and breathing in the fresh air. Use the buttons located between both sun visors on the roof of your vehicle to navigate the sunroof. Press the auto button with the arrow up to open the sunroof and press the auto button with the down arrow to close it. You can also open your sunroof a crack but be careful when closing it and ensure that it's shut all the way.

Now that you know many of the main features people are going crazy about with this vehicle, you will find some of the best details, known as the safety features. The more you get to know these features, the more comfortable you will feel behind the wheel.

Safety Features

The first safety feature to go over is the power locks. The power locks can double as safety and interior details of the vehicle. It will give you control to prevent children from opening the door while you're driving. It will also keep any unwanted passengers out by pushing a button.

Another key safety feature to have been the anti-lock brake system. The system will prevent you from getting into an accident at the last minute. You can rely on your brakes to pump your brakes if you must come to a stop to avoid hitting the car in front of you.

One rule to remember is always to be sure everyone is putting their seatbelts on before you drive anywhere. These seatbelts are 3-point, which means it is in the shape of a Y once you put them on. The seatbelt will lay across your lap and shoulder. When you have your seatbelt on the right way, it will keep you safe if you find yourself in an unfortunate accident. If you need to install car seats in your new car, always take them to a police or fire station to have them inspected.

Next, it's time to go over ratings. The ratings are how the 2016 Jeep Compass is rated if you were in an accident. If your vehicle ended up in an accident where it happened to roll over, it has a rating of 4 stars. Having a 4-star rating is a good thing in this case because you are almost guaranteed 100 percent safety. In all front accidents, drivers gave the rating 3 stars for safety. Having a 3-star rating is average. If you are involved in a car accident while driving this vehicle, there are a mild number of injuries. Many of the drivers that are driving this vehicle have reported these ratings.

Now that you know all the details of this vehicle, you may be excited about the next step. Next, you will want to purchase one to call your own. Hartland Automotive Sales will help you out with this purchase, and they can ensure that you will fall in love with this vehicle.

Jim Stansbury - 2010 HONDA ACCORD EX-L V-6 SEDAN

-

The Accord is as polished, crisp, and confident as ever. It's responsive and smooth-riding, with an amazing amount of front-seat room for this car class. It's a perfect car for a big family or for small families that want to fit three rows of people in, and it's a perfect commuter car. It has an incredibly comfortable ride that almost anyone will appreciate. It has great cargo space, and it's comfortable for all five passengers. All in all, the Accord is one of the best choices you can make if you want a car that's fun to drive, functional, and easy to live with.

2010 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 Sedan AT Overview

Honda has redesigned its midsize sedan for 2010, reworking it to compete with other top family sedans such as the Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Malibu, Hyundai Sonata, and Nissan Altima. The new Accord offers an upgraded cabin, improved exterior styling, and a choice of more powerful V6 engines.

The 2010 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 Sedan AT is a midsize luxury car that offers a sporty design, roomy cabin, and ample engine power for family use. It competes with other top sedans such as the Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Malibu, and Hyundai Sonata. The 2010 Accord is available in three different styles: the four-door EX sedan (which seats five), the two-door Special Edition coupe (which seats four), and the five-passenger LX Sport sedan (which has an additional rear seat).

Available options include heated front seats, premium leather upholstery, electronic vehicle information center displays that show fuel economy data, turn-by-turn directions through the navigation system's voice commands, an upgraded 710-watt audio system with a touch screen interface, and a rearview camera to help you see small children or pets in your lap when backing up.

The Accord's 3.5-liter V-6 engine delivers 210 horsepower and 254 foot-pounds of torque at 4400 rpm, enough for lively acceleration around town and smooth passing power on the highway. It has a wide powerband that makes it responsive in casual driving situations, but if you stomp on the gas pedal, there's not much immediate response until 4500 RPM or so. Fuel economy is good: an EPA estimated 19 miles per gallon (city) and 29 mpg (highway). With five passengers aboard and air conditioning running, we saw 18 mpg; only the driver onboard achieved 22 mpg in mostly highway driving.

The Accord's 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 177 horsepower and 162 foot-pounds of torque at 4800 rpm, making it well suited for around-town driving. It has good acceleration in casual driving situations, but there is not much immediate response until about 4000 RPM if you stomp on the gas pedal. EPA mileage estimates are 24 mpg (city) and 34 mpg (highway). With five passengers aboard and air conditioning running, we saw 21 mpg overall; with only the driver onboard achieved 26 mpg in mostly highway driving. The four-cylinder engine feels stronger under hard acceleration thanks to its variable valve timing system that helps build power quickly when RPMs rise above 3200.

2010 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 Sedan AT Features:

Performance

2010 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 Sedan AT is up the charts. It features a 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 210 horsepower and 254 foot-pounds of torque at 4400 rpm (more than the Camry and Altima and equal to the Fusion, but less than the Sonata's 274 pound-feet of torque).

Four-cylinder engines are also available in the Accord. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder delivers 177 horsepower and 162 foot-pounds of torque at 4800 rpm. EPA mileage estimates are 24 mpg (city) and 34 mpg (highway). Notable is its capability for strong acceleration - it has variable valve timing that helps build power quickly when rpm rises above 3200. The four-cylinder engine feels stronger under hard acceleration thanks to this technology.

A five-speed automatic transmission comes standard with the V6 engine, and it works beautifully. It short shifts around town, which means that you'll never feel like you're using too much gas by running the engine at high rpm with your foot on the accelerator.

Style & Design

The Honda Accord has been a consistent best-seller in the midsize sedan category for years now. In 2010, it was looking better than ever. It gets a new front end that features better angles and LED work lamps and turn signals projecting from the bottom of the headlight clusters to create a distinctive look. The 2010 Accord also gets a new front grille finished in chrome. The wiper arm design has been changed to add a sleeker look, and the wheels have been redesigned with a slightly larger diameter for better handling.

Comfort

The Accord's interior is well-designed. The driver seat offers power height and lumbar adjustment, making it easy to find a comfortable driving position. The front passenger gets its own set of power controls, so the two occupants don't have to fuss over each other about who gets to control the reading light or adjust the temperature. All four doors come with storage pockets and drink holders, plus map nets behind the front seats to keep drinks in place.

The instrument panel is laid out simply with a large speedometer and tachometer up front, flanked by smaller fuel and temperature gauges; simple digital information displays are located between these analog gauges that feature odometer, trip odo, instant fuel economy, distance to empty and average mpg.

Safety

The 2010 Honda Accord comes standard with antilock brakes (ABS) that automatically engage during panic braking situations to help the driver maintain steering control. Electronic brake-force distribution helps to distribute stopping power between the front and back wheels evenly. The ABS, brake-force distribution, and electronic stability control can be turned off if desired. Side curtain airbags are standard on the Accord sedan to protect both front and rear occupants in a side impact or rollover accident.

Where to Buy 2010 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 Sedan AT

There are many places you can buy a used Honda Accord. However, buying from a reliable dealer ensures the vehicle has passed safety inspection and will not break down right after purchase. One place that offers certified pre-owned cars at lower prices is Hartland Automotive Sales, located in Elkhart, Indiana. They offer financing for all credit types and offer no-hassle service.

Styling has been upgraded without changing the successful formula that makes this sedan so popular with consumers.
