And we're just giving ours. This is just a simple discussion about cars, not a direct attack at you, just your logic perhaps.

You gave your "opinions" and we are telling you facts...

Like the Sonata and Maxima are not luxury vehicles.
Like neither of the 3 cars you mentioned are not in the same class and people do not cross-shop them.

To name a few.

While I do disagree with some of your opinions (and your entire argument lacks "parallel structurism"), I do gotta admit that you did better than usual and stated a decent amount of factual information. The rest is more opinionated than everything.

Personally, as far as the Maxima is concerned, while it is not officially a luxury sedan, I consider it as one. It is quite comfortable (a friend's family owns it) and looks very nice on the inside. Definetely of luxury level. Not a big fan of the other 2 and don't consider them luxury though...

And the point of our response was to point out where you made mistakes. If you're unwilling to learn, then get the hell off the forum. Now.

Oh, that's right, you already KNOW everything.

Now THAT is a sweet car. Yes I knew they existed back then, I was just being funny. I like that body style better though.

Hyundai's really come along way since it first came to the U.S. market. It's following the same path as the Japanese did back in the 70's. The idea of a cheap and reliable car that's easy to fix worked for the first Japanese manufacturers to attempt this market, and still works today for the Koreans. Before we know it, the Koreans could be making high-grade performance/luxury vehicles like the Infinitis, Lexuses, and Acuras that originated from Japanese companies and really take the world stage. And if China decides to export cars here, who knows? In fifty years, we all might be driving a car from China.
