Hyundai Sales Up

Hyundai Corporation has reported sales are up more than 14 percent to 24,512 units in January 2009, from 21,452 units in January 2008.

Part of the sales are being attributed to their new Assurance Program which allows a buyer to bring thier new car back if they lose their job.

Hyundai sold more than a thousand of its Genesis car alone last month. But the Montgomery-made Sonata remains the company's top-seller with 8,508 sales last month. That's up 85 percent from last year.
