    Korean Cars

    What do you guys think about Korean cars? Any experience or word of mouth?

    I just got a Hyundai Genesis a couple of months ago and I must say that I absolutely LOVE it!

    Sorry for the dark pictures, taken with phone.

    the new ones are much better then the older ones.
    I'll stick to Jap though.

    Re: Korean Cars

    ive beat the hell out of my tib from the inside out and have not had the first issue out of it. (other than snapping a motor mount doing burnouts but thats a major weak point on the tib)

    the korean cars are built a lot better than what they used to be. there is a reason that hyundai offers a 100k bumper to bumper warranty.

    IN BEFORE I LIKE WAFFLE STARTS TO HATE! :P

    As soon as I saw the first picture I knew that was somewhere in southern Cali, sure enough, Orange. And those Genesis are pure sex. I have an '09 Elantra myself, certainly no complaints. 100,000 mile warranty... As opposed to many cars that are 3 times the cost with only 36,000 miles? Who's got more faith in their product?
    It feels sturdy, comfortable, drives well, turns on a dime. My only complaint is the 4-speed transmission. It just ***** for gas, and is hard getting it from 3rd to 4th. Granted the 2011's have a 6-speed, so, that's much better. Oh, and I tested a Honda Civic before I bought this car, and I was blown away at how cheap and mediocre everything was in the honda, especially being the most expensive of the cars I looked at.

    Hyundai has definitely revamped their style since 1995! great to see some cool cars that compete with Honda

    Oh and OP I love the Genesis coupes and highly doubt you will have any major issues with it.

    I think the wife's next car will be a Hyundai. The new styling really is pretty slick for some <20k cars.
