Honda, Toyota better watch out. Or better yet, they need not watch out... they need to wake up. Hyundai has passed them in my books. It just a matter of time now until brand loyalty wears off for the leaders and people start looking at these cars.
    agreed, but many are stuck on the "old" perception of Hyundai (do people honestly think they weren't going to improve?), and people just don't "know" yet. in the july 2010 issues of both car & driver and motor trend they had face offs/showdowns and guess who ranked on top of both... yes, Hyundai.

    Car & Driver contenders... Hyundai Genesis 3.8, Lexus ES350, Buick LaCrosse CXS, Ford Taurus Limited. Possible and Grand Total points is 240.

    Hyundai Genesis 3.8 - 205
    Lexus ES350 - 192
    Buick Lacrosse CXS - 186
    Ford Taurus Limited 183

    Motor Trend showdown contenders... Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Track, Ford Mustang V-6, Chevrolet Camaro RS, Dodge Challenger SE.

    1st Place - Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Track "The one that looks and feels like a sports car. Surprise, we liked it best".

    2nd Place - Ford Mustang V-6
    3rd Place - Chevrolet Camaro RS
    4th Place - Dodge Challenger SE

    btw... congrats on the new ride!

    That v-6 comparo was dumb, the Genesis cost as much a 5.0 Mustang (don't get me wrong, I like the Gensis coupe a lot, but it won't hold a candle to a v-8 mustang). If they come out with the Sonata wagon here, that'll definately be a car I'd look at getting (I have a thing for wagons). I'd take a Hyundai or Kia over Toyota any day.

    if someone is looking for the sonata's little brother, then the Elantra (very nice looking IMO) would be a good choice (at a dealership soon near you). looks alot nicer than most of the cars in it's segment...

    They had an Equs at the Tulsa Auto Show, definitely was impressive. Hyundai and Ford are really coming along strong.

    Re: Can you Believe this is a Hyundai

    I bought a Hyundai Excel in 1988. Even though the press said that the Hyundai was a piece of junk, my car was great . I used it for my job . It got 24 miles per gallon in city driving, and 55000 miles for the first set of front brakes. Remember all Chicago city driving. The only other thing it needed was a new battery. Yes it was a very good car.

    just think.. that was back then (like you many found them to be good vehicles and let's not forget that even toyota, honda , etc, were laughed and mocked at first too)and fast forward over 20 years later and look at them now (unfortunately, some people to this day are still going to have the mindset that they are junk). did one think they weren't going to improve and learn from their mistakes? LOL, i bet now many auto manufacturers wish they would fall off the face of the earth...

    I don't like their styling (the lines look all wrong). Plus, I'm still drinking that BMW juice.
