'Cmon! Put some imagination into it.

This. Hell, my car is not the best but it's still under warranty. That damn contract comes in handy.

There's a big difference between a Hyundai Elantra owner worrying about the car he got and wasting money on leases every 3 years.

Who cares. Your powertrain is covered until 100,000. Drivemit till it gets 100,000 just make sure you keep up o the manufacturers recommended services. Otherwise you’re just throwing money away. You’re most likely upside down on the Elantra anyway. So you’ll be in even worse shape if you buy the Toyota,

I have a Optima with 140,000 miles and I drive it every day. When it breaks I’ll dump it and buy another

Imagination or personal experience?

As a fellow Hyundai owner, I'm dismayed that you're falling into Honda/Toyota trap. Drive past any Toyota dealership and notice one thing. They all have service departments. Those service folks are doing more than oil changes.

I’ve seen plenty of people buy a car and trade them in after only a couple years taking a bath and having to roll over what they owe into another vehicle making their payment skyrocket. I don’t have that problem because I’ve done the buying a vehicle thing for over 30 years. Now I’m retired i want a new vehicle every 3 years and no maintenance cost besides oil changes and 1 tire rotation.

What do you owe on the car and what's it worth?

Well I can tell you this, my local Hyundai and Toyota dealers are owned by the same man, and they are located next door to each other. The Toyota dealer has rentals, the Hyundai dealer does not. Not long ago I went to rent a car for a trip, and they had NONE available. The lady behind the counter told me “all of our rentals are being used by Hyundai warranty customers next door”.

They have since changed this and now the Hyundai dealer has their own rentals, so they aren’t allowed to hog up all of the ones from the Toyota dealer anymore.

That may be due to the 2.0 & 2.4L engine replacements from the manufacture defects.
