Hyundai Parts Specialist :rolleye:

Work in the Parts Dept. at a Hyundai dealership, will be three years in May. I am very enthusiastic about my job. I have always loved everything automotive, and this puts me right in the thick of it where I can have full access to all of the inner workings of parts and service. That plus the fact that I have unlimited access to all of the brand new cars when they come in. I get to see them before the sales guys do. :bigthumb:

I have so many numbers in my head... :evilgrin: Even I'm amazed at some of the stuff I can remember. Given a random part number, I can usually tell you what system of the vehicle the part goes to and what vehicle, including year range (most of the time anyway). Some see it as a gift, I see it as a curse... lol. Even so, I still learn something new every day.

Apparently it's working to my advantage though because I have survived two rounds of layoffs. The first time they got rid of the Parts Manager and combined the positions of Parts and Service managers. That left just two of us in parts. The second time, which was right before the first of the year, they got rid of the guy I had been working with that had been working in automotive parts for 12+ years, and for this company for a little less than 6 years. Then they hired a very green rookie with no experience in the automotive business and I am currently training him. He's at least got common sense, I can work around any other weaknesses he may have.

Anyway, glad to be here. I have access to lots of info and I am a curious person by nature. I love to look stuff up, and have become the one person in the dealership that everybody comes to when they want to know detailed info about any of our vehicles, or want to know the scoop about upcoming vehicles. So ask away, if I don't know I'll tell you I don't know, but I'll do my best to find out.

Well of course! I could handle that for you. I will beat the living crap out of it to see what breaks and you get to fix it. How could I pass that deal up!

Repair isnt part of treatment. :shifting:
When talking about the animate repair is treatment. For instance, when humans go in for treatment, that is exactly what is getting done, repair of the human anatomy. But, if you're not gonna repair it, I'll be doing my own breaking, thank you. I'm pretty good at it..

DD, I'm right with ya bro...I've been writing svc for about 10yrs now at this dealer & must admit, pretty damn good at it. I've survived 2 rounds of layoffs, but since I'm the only advisor in this store (I insisted when the last guy quit a couple of years ago so I could make a llttle more) I don't see me going anywhere. The owner also has a Honda, Volkswegon, & Chrysler/Jeep dealership in this complex, along w/other stores throughout the southeast. Volkswegon went from 2-1 advisors, Honda & Chrysler down to 3 & may go to 2. :eek:

Ooopps, I was on topic about this in another thread. Anyways.

I'm a long-haul, cross-country, truck-driver, and the US Highway is my office.
No problem bro, we know you're just trying to get your post count up..;)

I'm an avionics technician for Air France-KLM here at the Montreal-Trudeau International Airport. I'm a day/week team supervisor, and basically everything that has to do with instrumentation, sensors and electronics is in my department. It's a cool job but I'm thinking about getting my degree credited and going to med school.

27501 or 27301 is the start of the plug wire string for like 99 my cars right?? I think 27301roo was th opcode for replacement of wires IIRC:dunno:

Any way I started as a Hyundai tech, then service advisor, service manager, sales person, finance manger, and now sales manager of Hyundai and HUGE toyota store. I have followed Hyundai from PA to FL and back through 3 different stores.

My owner laughs at me and says my blood is Hyundai Blue:rofl:

That's pretty cool that you know the workings of the store from front to rear & all perspectives.

Canada Revenue Agency (STOP THROWING THINGS AT ME JEEEEEEEEEEEEZ!!!) and photographer. One pays the bills, one is what I love to do.

Hopefully, that second one will become both, eventually. ;)
