Planning to finance a car? To make sure that you can get a payment plan that works with your budget, our Hyundai finance department offers these tips for how to get approved for a loan.
Check Your Credit
Your credit score plays a big role in the financing process, which is why you should know what it is before applying for a loan. The better your score is, the easier it will be to get approved. Plus, you can usually get a lower interest rate as well.
If your credit isn’t great right now, there are some things you can do to improve your score, such as:
Fix mistakes. It’s a good idea to take a close look at your credit report. Your low score may have to do with an error that can be corrected.
Consolidate your debt. Bundling your debt into one monthly payme...

Saving Time and Space
Our trade-in process at Mike Miller Hyundai is easy and seamless. You can typically get an offer pretty fast, and af...
There are many family-friendly vehicles to pick from these days, from minivans and sedans to crossovers and trucks. If you’re looking for a big vehicle for your growing brood, an SUV will certainly fit the bill.
The new Hyundai Palisade is particularly well-regarded by parents for a number of reasons, and when you visit Mike Miller Hyundai, you'll be able to experience it for yourself.
Tons of Space
In its base setup, the Hyundai Palisade fits up to eight people. Even its third row is spacious and comfortable with roomy cloth seats, but you can also opt for leather upholstery as well.
You can also get heated and ventilated seats for the fist and second rows, as well as a power-folding third row.
Which Hyundai Vehicles in Peoria, IL Have Touchscreens?
There is a lot to love about Hyundai vehicles, especially in regards to tech. Every year, more and more Hyundai models are built with state-of-the-art technology, including innovative infotainment systems.
The Hyundai Accent is a nimble little sedan that is super fun to drive. Not only does it come with a five-inch touchscreen, but it also comes with a USB port and Bluetooth® connectivity. In upper trims, you can swap out the five-inch screen for a seven-inch display.

When most car shoppers think about buying a vehicle with good towing ability, Hyundai is a brand that probably doesn’t immediately spring to mind. Our vehicles may contain advanced tech and exciting performance features, but at first glance, they don’t look like towing champions.
However, you might be surprised by how much our SUVs can actually tow. The new Hyundai Santa Fe, for example, is a model that you shouldn’t sleep on when it comes to towing.
Hyundai Santa Fe Towing Ability
In its base setup, the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe can tow up to 2,000 pounds. However, when it is properly equipped, that number climbs all the way up to 3,500 pounds. That means you should have little trouble towing a trailer or even a small camper.
You don’t have to search very hard to find used car dealers near me, as there are many places in and around Peoria that you can turn to.
However, not all dealerships are created equally. You need to be sure that the one you choose places an emphasis on the customer, not the sale. That’s why so many car shoppers continually come back to Mike Miller Hyundai for our personal atmosphere and huge selection of used cars.
What Does Mike Miller Hyundai Offer?
At our dealership, you will always find an impressive selection of used cars, which doesn’t only consist of Hyundai models. We typically carry a variety of makes, models, and model years.
Plus, in addition to our regular inventory, we also have specially priced vehicles that are $15,000 and below. This will help you fin...
Hyundai Parts 101: What is a Muffler and What Does It Do?
At Mike Miller Hyundai, we don't just help you find a new vehicle. We also help you take care of your Hyundai car and find the official Hyundai parts you need to keep it running right.
One car part we get a lot of questions about is the muffler. What is it? What does it do? Is it really that important? Our knowledgeable mechanics can answer all of your questions.
What is a Muffler?
A muffler is a critical part of your exhaust system. As the name implies, it "muffles" the sound of your engine. Without it, your car would be extremely loud and unsuitable for daily road use.
Your muffler takes the noise created by your engine and funnels it through a number of passages and chambers that quiet it down. This way, the hot exhaust gas creates a little bit of noise, but nothi...

Does the 2020 Hyundai Elantra Have a Turbocharged Engine?
If you’re looking for a reliable and fun compact sedan, then the 2020 Hyundai Elantra should be at the top of your list. While compact vehicles don’t often come with turbocharged engines without a price increase, the 2020 Hyundai Elantra is unique in that it has two turbocharged engines.
2020 Hyundai Elantra Eco

Have you ever looked up “Hyundai Sonata towing capacity” or the towing capacity of any of our other new Hyundai cars? If not, you may be surprised to learn that even our sedans are capable of towing, if the proper preparations are made at Mike Miller Hyundai.
Prepare for Fall Activities
Pretty soon, we will be feeling the fall weather here in Peoria, which means camping, fishing, hiking, and other outdoor activities will inevitably follow suit.
If you want to tow something with your current vehicle, it’s always best to check your manufacturer guidelines on towing. The last thing you want to do is tow something heavy and damage the exterior or interior of your car.
However, you shouldn’t worry too much when it comes to our cars. Hyundai vehicles have th...
Comparing the Hyundai Accent to competing sedans like the Nissan Versa is something we get asked about frequently at Mike Miller Hyundai. We’re not going to lie; these models are extraordinarily similar. However, there are perks to choosing not only the Hyundai Accent, but also our dealership and brand as a whole.
The Hyundai Accent is a true commuter’s car. With a compact body and a small turning radius (even smaller than the Nissan Versa’s turning radius), you can back in and out of tight spots without breaking a sweat. If you’re a new driver learning to parallel park, this car will be your best friend.
While the Nissan Versa is very similar in size to the Hyundai Accent, our model wins out with just a bit more rear head- and leg...
