This last weekend I took my 2007 Elantra SE in for its first free oil change. The selling dealer, Fuccillo Hyundai in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles, gave me a card for five free oil changes when I bought the car last year. Well, when I arrived for my oil change I found an empty lot where the dealership use to be. I called Hyundai customer service and they did not appear to know why Fuccillo Hyundai closed. I am starting to get a little concerned because this is the third large Hyundai dealership to close in my area in the last three years. I was told that Fuccillo is the largest Hyundai dealer, by volume, in the country with four dealerships in upstate New York and one dealership in Los Angeles. Is there something that Fuccillo knows that we don’t? After all, isn’t Los Angeles supposed to be the car capital?
Have any of you had dealerships close in your area for no reason?
