RENTON, WA – July 12, 2023 – Car Pros Automotive Group announces the grand re-opening of its Car Pros Hyundai Renton, Washington, in a new, state-of-the-art facility.

The dealership also features a gourmet coffee station, Wi-fi equipped customer workstations, and a large, stylish lounge with ample comfortable seating.
“We are so excited to be in our brand-new home in Renton. The very first Car Pros new car dealership specialized in Hyundai back in 1999, so you could say that Hyundai is in our DNA, as is our commitment to offer the best customer service to the Renton and greater Seattle community in a beautiful, ultramodern dealership,” said Matthew Phillips, CEO of Car Pros Automotive Group. “Thank you to all of our customers, to Hyundai, and to our incredible Car Pros Renton team for all your support as we continue our mission to offer an unsurpassed car buying experience for every customer.”

Michael Orange remarked during his speech that Car Pros “knocked it out of the park” with the new facility that “celebrates the investment made by the Phillips family to the Hyundai brand and the community.”
