Have you ever wished there was a place you could take your car to have someone knowledgeable look it over and tell you whether there are any issues you need to take care of—FOR FREE!?!
Believe it or not, there is such a place. For one day only. And only for Hyundai owners.
OK, so not everyone drives a Hyundai but there are thousands of 'em on Southern California roads. I believe I read somewhere other than a Hyundai press release that they've managed to outsell Toyota here in recent years.
Anyway, Hyundai'd Orange Countians have been invited to participate in the Hyundai Before Service Experience Tour Friday at Hyundai Motor America, the company's U.S. headquarters in Fountain Valley.

Participants can get their vehicle inspected for free regardless of make or age. The multi-point inspections—performed by Hyundai certified technicians—include fluid checks, bulb checks, battery checks and tire-pressure adjustments. Owners will have the opportunity to ask technicians questions, too.
Hyundai says it started the tour to bring attention to the importance of car care and preventative maintenance. Of course, the company will also seize the opportunity to "educate shoppers" about new Hyundai products and vehicle technologies—just in time for the holidays—including Blue Link, Android Auto, Adaptive Cruise Control, Bluetooth, Blind Spot Detection and the 2016 Hyundai Tucson, which can be test driven at the event.
Other attractions include a hot rod car club vehicle display, free refreshments, Hyundai Hope on Wheels booth, a health-check booth and a Hyundai Careers for Military booth. The event runs from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday in the Western Region Parking Lot at 10550 Talbert Ave., Fountain Valley.
