I have always been a Honda and Toyota fan, but I voted Hyundai on this one. They have came a very long way since the early 1990s.

I watched the clip and suprised at the winner.

You need to be blind to buy a Huyndai though, which makes it less amiable for the driving masses.

They're actually decent cars. I wouldn't buy one for myself, but they're not bad cars. I'll take it over 95% of what Detroit has to offer.

The Fusion is the only American car, I'd lease (for 24 months, no more). The styling is nice, the drive is not bad either, although seating in American cars have never cut it for me. It's better than the Malibu anyday. What isn't anyways?

Spoken like someone who's operating with out-of-date information. Go look at the new Sonata and Genesis. Hyundai has come a long way and is already better than anything from The Sorry Three.

Don't you just love the publishing industry? I'm trying to remember the last time I saw a magazine write an unfavorable article for a product whose company's ad was on the next page.

Do you just go around driving/sitting in cars? Apparently so.

Any body that praises that Korean junk known as Hyundai obviously has awful taste in cars.

Fixed that for you.

More Camry/Toyota bad news - http://www.autoblog.com/2010/03/23/r...ssues-in-2002/

I don't know why anyone would by a car that may or may not kill you, with no clear fix yet.

Oh it might very well be mechanically good, and well put together cars, but I still think they're mindnumbingly ugly, the Sonata isn't as bad as the smaller ones (the Accent is so awful I'd have to wear a skimask to be seen in one.), but it's still pretty awful.

That said, so is the Toyota Camry.

when oh when will people stop bashing Hyundai? its starting to border on ignorance

when they are producing reliable, well built cars which serve their purpose well such as the Sonata, Tuscon, Elantra, Santa Fe, Accent, Genesis and Genesis Coupe, and have matched or exceeded the quality of the "Big 3" automakers, it would seem car guys should get a clear picture of what is possible in the auto industry if effort is put forth. if you want to call Hyundai's of even 10 years ago junk, fine. but thats not today's Hyundai. which makes the cars they are producing today seem that much more remarkable, if somewhat ordinary

meanwhile where is Chrysler and GM? bought out and bailed out, thats where
