    Off-topic: Hyundai

    Ya know something... This isn't too bad looking of a car.. Is it? This company is right on track, if you ask me.. I love luxury cars.. When this thing hits the road, if it's atleast got decent handling and ONE ball, it'll be nice. It's supposed to have a 270 horsepower 32 valve V8. This may be the replacement for the current XG350 - which isn't too shabby either... Any thoughts?

    I think it looks pretty good, however, I think I'd feel kind of silly driving it....

    If thats a Hyundai I'll kiss your butt on main street. Looks more like a Bentley too me. I would love to drive that buggy down to the local Wal-Mart or Krystal for some gut bomb's.

    Yeah, that's a Hyundai alright.. This shows that they're really on the right path.. Their cars are beginning to look nice.. Even the Kia Optima is getting nice.. They don't have good handling, power or options - but they're nice looking cars to drive in for people that don't want to spend too much..

    The only mistake I see Hyundai making is - well - their cars are getting a bit too expensive.. For about $28k, you can have their XG350 fully loaded - then again you can have an '01 STS for the same - fully loaded.. They've got to think about that...

    Thats a very cool car, but im not sure if i would drive it. It is nice to look at, but it would look kinda ridiculous on the road. I dont think the world is ready for that kind of styling.

    Also, i think that if they keep making the sport compact cars, then their gonna turn into a ricer brand, or maybe more then they already are (not as bad as honda or mitsubishi, but their catching up) :disappoin

    I promised myself years ago that I'd never drive a car that rhymes with a day of the week.. BUT - that thing is COOL! If they keep coming up with stuff like that, I may break that promise. Or not..

    I agree . But i think that Hyundai is breaking away from the cheapy kia type. I have nothing against kia, how can you go wrong with a 10yr/100000 mile warr. If GM offered that on their cars, they would be bankrupt in 5 years!@!

    Keep this in mind, though:

    The only mistake I see Hyundai making is - well - their cars are getting a bit too expensive.. For about $28k, you can have their XG350 fully loaded - then again you can have an '01 STS for the same - fully loaded.. They've got to think about that...

    These cars don't have half the options we have.. For example - rain sensing windshield wipers...

    i agree, they seem to be in the middle of the cheapy type and the expensive type. They need to take their side and stay there (not in the neutral zone)

    The XG350 will need to sell for less than a 2 year old STS... You can get a 100,000 mile warranty on the STS too. Maybe with the mileage that it already has, it's 75,000.. That's not enough of an advantage to make the XG350 cost just as much..

    I have been checking around for warranties. And most companies won't do anything over 100K miles, and older than 94. So if your 95 is under 100K, you should be able to get one. There's a whole bunch of places online, so a simple search will get you some.

    I also agree that they are on the right track. They been making some good looking cars(tiburon(sp?)) and did pretty well in 02 scca rally event (I think they won the manufacturer's championship title)
    irc hyundai owns kia.

    edit:I found the link to their flagship sedan

    Yeah, this is Hyundai's flagship vehicle - the Centennial.. It's very nice - and quick.. Around 275 horsepower in the V8.. Very nice interior.. Very hard to find any good pictures.. Here's a link to an older picture:

    I wonder if this car will ever make it here.. It's competition is the Lexus LS and Cadillac Seville (amongst others).
