Hyundai making run for top U.S. auto seller

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- Hyundai could soon attain a national ranking it's never enjoyed before.  A report from CNBC indicates Hyundai's sales figures for February are way up -- as much as 70% higher than last year.

Billy Allgood from Auburn Hyundai says he has posted a 20% increase this month so far.   "I can say our business has been great, people are buying cars, the Hyundai assurance program has been a big plus bringing customers into the dealership, " said Allgood.

The buyer assurance program allows buyers who lose their jobs within the first year of ownership, return their Hyundai's for a refund.

Final numbers come out this Monday.

The Korean car company operates its only North American plant right here in Montgomery.
