Driving Tips

At this time of year, you can expect more than the occasional rain shower. Here are some weather driving tips to keep you safe on the road.

  • Be Prepared – exercise precaution by checking tires for grip and windshield wipers for optimal visibility.
  • Reduce your speed – drivers are at risk for hydroplaning at speeds more than 30 miles per hour resulting in loss of tire traction during wet conditions.
  • Know how to respond to skid – avoid slamming on the breaks as this would worsen the vehicle’s balance making it difficult to control.
  • Avoid cruise control – in wet conditions the chance of losing control of the vehicle can increase when in cruise control.

In the Driver's Seat

Maintaining great relationships is something that most strive to do.

However, this takes on a whole new meaning in the role of client advisor at Magna Motors Dealership Ltd., the exclusive Hyundai dealer in Jamaica. Just ask Ian Bennett-Easy who describes his job in three words: exciting, hectic and flexible.

"The look on someone's face when they accept the keys to a brand-new car, especially when they never thought they could afford one is priceless," shares Ian.

As a client advisor, Ian ensures that he highlights the values of the Hyundai brand in a way that prospective drivers can easily understand. Before joining the team, Ian admired Magna's particular style of customer relations, and he also had a shine for Hyundai vehicles. "Jamaicans are among the hardest working people in the world, and Hyundai offers an opportunity to every Jamaican, regardless of where they are in their life's journey, to reward themselves with a great product," he shared.

So with a vehicle for every interest, what's Ian personal choice?
"The loaded Tucson Turbo! It is a pleasure to drive. The Tucson has luxurious and practical features including a panoramic sunroof, cooling seats and lane changing assistance," he says.

Ian is passionate about his role at Magna Motors, and he has been able to broaden his career horizons in the industry by gaining a greater understanding of the various processes in the business.

According to him, to be successful it is essential to align personal goals with those of the company one works for, and in doing just that, working at Magna Motors has helped him to grow and become more focused and determined.

When advising drivers on the best choice for investing in a motor vehicle, it is essential to believe in the product yourself. "The Hyundai brand enhances the driving experience significantly because every model has features that are practical, convenient and improves safe driving".

With enjoyment and dedication, a job becomes a personal passion, something to be proud of each day.


"The Journey" celebrates the passion and promise of Jamaicans Hyundai Jamaica has launched a new brand campaign to cement its commitment to its local customers. Dubbed "The Journey", the campaign features print, 30-second TV, radio and social media elements. Set to the music of Jimmy Cliff’s iconic reggae song, "You Can Get It If You Really Want" and uses the narrative of the personal pursuit of success and how it uniquely defines us as a nation. “The Journey campaign is one that connects the Hyundai brand to the tenacity and greatness of our Jamaican family and the journey which the Magna Motors Dealership has started in the country is not yet complete,” said Kathryn Davis, Marketing Coordinator, Magna Motors Dealership Ltd. The Jamaican culture, our boldness, creativity and above all determination, all inspire the campaign’s story of the journey, from humble beginnings to reaching one’s full potential.

Magna Motors drives charity

MAGNA Motors Dealership Limited displayed the power of charity when it handed over a brand new Hyundai Grand i10 to Angels of Love Jamaica at their Old Hope Road showroom yesterday.

“It was a pleasure, an honour, for the opportunity Angels of Love gave to Magna Motors,” Juan Vargas, managing director of Magna Motor Dealership Ltd, told the Jamaica Observer's Auto magazine.

The sentiment was echoed by Phillip Liu, chairman and founder of Angels of Love Jamaica.

“The car is a blessing which I've been asking for and it has come in this form.”

The car was the goal of Magna Motors-sponsored 'Your Miles Matter' campaign which was launched on November 11 last year. The initiative saw each mile of a Hyundai test-driven being converted into US$20, which was applied to the purchase of the vehicle.

The target was 900 miles. The campaign overshot that goal, eventually hitting 1,231 miles at its close in December 29.

The donation to Angels of Love Jamaica from Magna Motors Dealership Limited is part of Hyundai's international focus on children which, to date, has seen the company donate over US130 million towards paediatric cancer research.

According to Liu, the car will go a long way to achieve this aim.

“It will do a lot, meaning transportation in the true sense,” he said.

Liu added that the i10 will facilitate more visits to children all over the island — at their homes or in the hospital. The car will also allow the quicker purchase of medication and delivery to them as well.

This recent charity offering has been part a wave of corporate social responsibility Magna Motors Dealership Limited has been part of since the company's inception in 2015. In 2016, the Randolph Lopez School of Hope was helped by a donation made by Magna Motors Dealership Limited to the Jamaica Association of Intellectual Disabilities.
