I have heard great things about Kia'*. Word on the street the car carrier dudes (what ever they are called, the people that drive trucks with like 12 cars on them and they deliver them to dealers) have to go to a special training session to haul Kia'*. Supposedly if you chain them down wrong you bend the frame. What happens when you hit a pothole?
I had a big long post about Hyundai'* and how every auto manufactuer (I so didn't spell that right) has its problems. But I knew if I posted it all the haters in this thread wouldn't understand
Just be careful if you buy a newer crown victoria. The diff tends to frag pretty quick.
Also be careful if you buy a new Ford Explorer. The drive train makes more thumps and clunks than I have ever heard in a car. Not to mention the scraping noise you hear when you are doing tight menuvering.
99-04 blazers will fry a wheel bearing every 10000 miles.
I think it was the last generation of GMC/Chevy 1/2 ton pickups will never have a right side DRL.
Jeep Cherokee'* will eat brake pads for breakfast.
You really could go on all day. Sure, some problems are more serious than others, but almost every car will have something weird about it. I'm not defending Hyundai, but I am just saying you have to be careful how you rip on one company. I personally haven't met anyone that has had a problem with their Hyundai. Just as you have probably never heard of anyone that has had any of the problems that I have listed. Those are just ones that I have heard or experienced myself.
