Thread Name: BS: How good/bad is your car?
Subject: RE: BS: How good/bad is your car?
I am absolutely in love with my '06 Hyundai Sonata and would recommend any Hyundai to any person who asks ~ certainly anyone in the market for a new car.

I believe that this company's products provide the best value-for-price in the entire industry, because the company does not have the well-established reputation for quality enjoyed by its Japanese competitors. The first Hyundais to arrive in the US were, indeed, of dubious quality, and the company is still paying the price for their damaged reputation in the form of rock-bottom MSRPs. The quality has improved, dramatically, and the reputation will improve in time, probably pretty soon, at which point the prices will rise until roughly equivalent to Toyota, Honda, and Nissan.

My previous car was a Toyota Camry, also an excellent and economical vehicle. My feeling about the Sonata is that it is every bit as good as a Camry (or an Accord), gets slightly better gas milage, provides significantly greater interior room (especially in the back seat), and costs several thousands dollars less. What more could you ask for?
