    Competitor Alert: Kia Amanti

    Well.. Hyundai has their XG350 - but this looks like it'll be more interesting...

    http://www.kia.com/041703.shtml

    Keep in mind that this car has the 10 year/100,000 mile warranty. Hopefully this helps UP the standards on all luxury cars...

    For the last couple of years, I always thought the largest Hyundai looked like a Deville (esp. the front end), now they are totally copying Mercedes Benz. I hear they have made huge quality leapes foreward, but I wouldn't bet my life savings on it.

    that car looks very nice. As i said numerous in the forum before, don't forget that Hyundai hasn't gave US their flagship sedan which is big as a deville with 32valve v8 in it.

    Hyundai/Kia are seriously closing the gap between where they entered the US market and where the bread and butter US sedans are quietly sitting. To anyone who foolishly laughs at thier exploits, I only need to remind you of what most industry (and non-industry) "experts" said about the probability of a Japanese automaker (Toyota) ever being a serious threat to the US luxury market. Complacency has a way of getting you bitten in the ass.

    Nobody said it was any IMMEDIATE threat to Cadillac but I would still warn against complacency.

    Yea...my girlie has a Hyundai...when she bought it, at first I laughed, then I cried, then I drove it. Damn. She bought the Sante Fe cause she thinks she needs an SUV with 4X4 or something. Well...rides well. Is much quiter then her blazer ever was. Pretty damn good fuel economy for what it is. Yea...all in all, I would much rather have it then my Ranger...and I have always disliked the Korean cars, I guess maybe Hyundai is getting somewhere.
