Previous we went to another Don Wood on East State St. And gave them the figures we could afford what we were looking for and their job was to simply sell us a car outside our funding. The next day we went to Don Wood Hyundai, and we have never been given greater respect buy a salesman. They listened to what we had and could afford wasted no time finding us the perfect car and made the deal. Our salesman Trey was awesome and went far above and beyond to make sure we were happy with what we were shown ...

I wish I’d gone to Don Wood when I bought my first new car 10 years ago. They are always polite. They’ve never forgotten I was in the waiting room. If I ever get another new car I’ll choose Don Wood again!

Don Wood Hyundai in Athens went above and beyond to get my motor replaced. They provided me with a rental without even having to ask. My car was finished less than a week. I am very happy and pleased with them! Thank you!!

Don Wood stopped by for some reason and had a meeting upstairs. That delayed my purchase a little bit, but Chris Ford made it happen with as much speed and ease as the situation allowed.

We bought a new and quite rare 2018 Hyundai Elantra 6SP MT. My wife traveled little over an hour and a half to give it a try to this dealership and were happy we did. The Sales Manager (Philip Coffman) was great and to deal with and offered us a great price on the car. He even checked quite a few Hyundai dealerships around the area (WV) for price comparison so I consider them very honest.

Both my wife and I were very impressed with our experience with Don Wood Hyundai. From start to finish, our salesman answered every question, covered every detail about the vehicle, financing, service, options and warranty. Couldn't ask for a more comprehensive presentation of such a wide array of subjects related to our vehicle from our selection of options, through the delivery. Simply couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I did a tremendous amount of research before purchasing my new Santa Fe Sport. Jordan Coffman did an exceptional job working with me on a price point I was very happy with. I talked with a couple of other dealerships, but decided to go with Don Wood because of my positive experience with Jordan. I was so pleased overall that I also bought a second (used) car for my daughter! The Santa Fe Sport wasn't even on our radar until we happened to rent one recently. We were so impressed with it that after we did some research, we ...

We had been looking at 2-3 year old Velosters and realized with incentives that it may make sense for a new one to be our sons first car, at issue was monthly payment considerations & insuring our son & his car for the first time.

This was one of the best dealerships I've been to.. when I waked in a salesman started helping me with my car buying needs. And after I told him everything I wanted he suggested me a Hyundai elentra and I test drive it and like it but I asked if there was anything else then he suggested a accent which was the car I ended up buying after a test drive.

I went to the dealership with a specific budget amount in mind. The dealership worked with me to provide a quality vehicle within my budget limitations. Their service was professional and caring. There was no high pressure sales, instead the obvious desire to please the customer was conveyed every step of the way. I will definitely return to this dealer when shopping for a vehicle in the future.

Jordan, my salesman, was very professional and helped with any question I had. I never felt pressured or intimidated to buy something I didn't want. They gave me all the time I needed to make my decision, including the information they gave me. The manager did everything he could for the price I wanted. I learned so much about leasing vs. buying a car from both of them. Overall I am very pleased and will be recommending to all my friends and family to visit the guys over at Don Wood Hyundai.

The last time I used an unestablished repair shop was when they tipped my oil pan which seemed to create a chronic condition for my Ford and I ran out of go beside the Hyundai Service center and the next day I got my first Hyundai which was excellent. So when I drove it a lot my next choice was another Hyundai. I love the blue color and my clients really enjoy riding in it. I hope to order seat covers. So, Thank you for a good car and helping me finance it.

As I said before the Hyundai sales staff is not very professional and I always use Don Wood Toyota salesman Steve Coon for my new Hyundai purchases, three new Hyundai vehicles since 2011. Hope this helps. PS..... each time I have my Hyundai serviced I receive a coupon in the mail with discounts that always expire before my next service is due, DUMB!!!!!! Just pisses me off. I am NOT going to be serviced early just because I have a coupon.
