    Anyone given the Hyundai "Equus" a good test drive yet?

    In the past we have heard auto rag appraisals of the "Equus" quoted and a few first hand showroom appraisals, but I don't think we have heard a firsthand driving appraisal by one of our members. It would be intersting to hear what an uninterested party has to say about this new contender in the "luxury" marketplace!

    You mean Mr. Gulati.

    It would somehow turn into a cross-country trip to review an Equus for sale in Alaska, with plenty of food pics.

    Sal will be the first to buy one but he'll keep it a secret for a year.

    Heck he probably owns one right now.

    I stopped into the local Hyundai dealer a few months back to grab a Equus catalog, and they invited me back for a debut test drive. I'm interested, but I don't want to waste their time because there's no way I could ever afford that now. I think they just told me that to be polite. Maybe I'll just go in there some time and follow up with them.

    The more people they can get to drive and talk about an Equus the better.

    I don't think we have had a member report on driving an Equus. Would be interested in hearing if anyone has driven one and what they think the car.

    Re: Anyone given the Hyundai "Equus" a good test drive yet?

    I have not, and probably will not, test drive a Hyundai Horse............ but one of my daughters owns a mid-line 2012 Sonata, which I have driven. I was favorably impressed. Quite a lot of bang for the buck........ she drives the thing a skrillion miles a year and to date, after 2.3 years and 71,000 miles it's cost her zilch in maintenance other than regular tires, oil, brakes.

    Cadillac could learn a thing or two. A neighbor (14 miles from here) has an ATS econobox and it's a warranty nightmare at 7,800 miles. GM should jack up the rear view mirror and run a new car under it.

    Gee, it has been over three years since the Equus has come to market and none of our auto buffs have given one a real test drive. We occasionally hear about the wonder of the back seat and other attributes of th car, but so far, no one has actually driven one. It sadly brings to question whether many of the comments we hear are really first hand or just regurgitation of car mag propaganda.

    Re: Anyone given the Hyundai "Equus" a good test drive yet?

    Back in the series of doom and gloom threads we had a few weeks ago, many members swore that if the big, soft, V8, rear drive, comfy cruiser they were looking for was offered, they'd go buy it.

    Based on the posts, the Equus appears to meet their requirements. Even if not fully, it's pretty close where you'd think it'd gain at least some of our attention.

    Not only has no one here purchased one, but apparently no one has even batted an eye. Not even a test drive. Zero interest in 4 years.

    But Cadillac should be listening to us specifically, right? We know best. Surely we'd put our money where our mouths are. They are doing it all wrong!




    Go figure.
