Neighbor has one at 80K right now... Car still looks and runs great... They replaced the stereo and CV axle all under warranty.... These are the only issues so far... Not bad for an 80K car... Its a Sonata... His daughter has an Elantra and has had nothing for trouble iirc..

And I like the new 3.8 One...LOL

IF my bonneville was taken away from me (such as arson, theft, accident etc) would I hesisate to look at Hyundai, absolutely not. They're excellent cars and I want the Azera period.....In SE trim of course (the lightest one)

oh i forgot the best part. its an automatic transmission, and when we moved the battery over (at like, 11pm with insufficient lighting) we didnt notice the cable from the shifter which happened to be right next to the battery. put the battery down, take it for a drive.

next day he called me and asked me to come up while he was at work. apparently it wouldnt stay in drive - every time he accelerated the car shifted into 3rd. well thats fun. we took it apart in daylight and saw that the nut at the end of the cable was cutting into the battery bottom. wonderful design. so we bought some duct tape and used a couple layers of that to prop the battery up. went fine.

but hes weirded out now. came over today and pulled the fenderwell intake and instead put the filter in the engine bay, without a heat shield, right at the end of the maf screen. against my strenuous objections that he was pulling hot air from the engine bay directly into the maf screen. cuz he feels better with it there.


sure, the accord intake fits JUST FINE. bs.
