    I listen to a great automotive show Ed Wallace on 570 KLIF - I think his show is on over the web from 8am to 1pm every saturday. he used to make fun of Hundais - but no longer. He thinks they make a good car

    Thanks for the input. We just bought a new Hyundai Tiburon, so far we love it, but of course it's new. I know it has to be better than the Fords we have owned, and hopefully it is better than the Chevrolet it has replaced.

    In 1994 my son bought a Hyundai Excel (their low end vehicle). Basic car, he got some cool striping and added a sound system. And drove it 200k. Not bad for $5000.

    The next week my second son, back from a missionary 18 months in Korea, came home and immediately bought a Hyundai. Sad it was the best car with the best support.

    So . .

    The next week I bought a Hyundai Sonata. Now I am 6'6" and nearing 300# but it fit me better than my big buick. Ran mine 100k in a 4 years and never in the shop (except for oil/tire which was FREE for 100,000 miles).

    My son, now with three kids in SoCal has the Hyundai SUV. He had bought two more Hyundais in the past years and thinks they have the best bang for the buck

    Both Jeanne and I had Hyundai Excel's that were purchased six months apart back in 1990. One was nothing but trouble and the engine leaked oil and I was told by the Hyundai dealer that the only option was a new engine. This was of course after the warranty ran out. Back then they only had a 3yr/36000 mile warranty. That one died on me in 1998 with about 80K on it.

    The other was less drastic trouble but was always in and out of the shop. It finally died on me in 2001 with about 65K on it.

    I have heard nothing but good about later models and the warranty is now the best on the market. I think when I had mine Hyundai was new in the US and the low end excel wasn't up to standard at that time.
