Unhappy Quality: Hyundai Better than Nissan

Wow. WTF...is this possible? But like the article says, what remains unknown is how they hold up for the long term. Still...pretty impressive. http://www.usatoday.com/money/autos/...cr-picks_x.htm

The traditional idea auto manufacturers is to warante the car just under what they expect for it to begin to have problems. The customer is happy they get such a nice warante and the auto manufacturer statistically has to pay a very small percentage of repairs, because with a few exception most major failure happens after the warante has expired and the owner is liable for a large chunk. Hyundai offers a 10 year 100,000 mile bumper to bumper warante on their cars. That tells me they are pretty confident in their product since no auto company has matched that you have to wonder why. I am by no means saying that Nissan, Ford, Chevy ect make a bad produce or even that its inferior to Hyundai, what I am saying is Hyundai makes a better product than most people give them credit for.

I think Hyundai has really gotten their shit together in the past couple of years. I'm interested to know how the company pulled this off. Now if only they could be honest about horsepower....

i think they offer such a long and great warrenty is because no one is going to drive the shit outa it. how fast do those things go? i mean, if someone pulled up next to you in a hyundai to race, would you? (if you believed in street racing and even if it was a 3000lb tiburon)

Hyundais uses mainly Mitsubishi motors. Specifically, varients of the 4g63. The Accent uses a 1.8L 4g63. There are several guys on the dsmtalk forum board driving 4g63 6-bolt powered Accents, and some with big boost!!! I also know a 4g63 will drop into a 88-90 Excel GLS. As for quality, I don't think as good as Nissan. Hell, my mom compared Nissans reliability and quality to Cadillac's to many people. I bought my B12 off of her. She put that car through utter hell when she used to deliver pizzas.

Im a new guy to this nissan thing, but I'm not new to hyundai.
I own a 2000 Elantra wich has the same engine as the Tiburon.
Put the basics on it for now I/H/E its kitted out etc. As for quality I have to say its a major step up from the old excels and compared to Hondas I'd say its better. by the way the guy who said no ones gonna drive the shit out of it your wrong cause I do and others on the Hyundai forums do. And theres plenty of Turbo charged Hyundai's and modded ones that would realy change your mind about racing them. DONT SLEEP ON NO ONE

Umm....I know someone that snow races his Accent GSI and he tied for first. He's faster then most of the AWD cars. He also participates in SoloII and could post some very impressive times.

His old Accent



and his new one

Actually Canada, and remember...




BTW You drive the shit out of a crappy Sentra, and so do I. Except for the guys that are driving Skylines, EVERYBODY on this forum is driving an Asian econobox. Who are you trying to fool?? Sentras don't have "street cred" either, and really, who fucking cares. As long as you can post the times, I'll be impressed no matter what you are driving, hell if your driving a HYUNDAI I'll be even more impressed!!!!

Hyundai has really gooten their shit together. Example, the Beta motor, what you see in the Tib. Great motor. I think they don't get enough respect that they deserve because lack of aftermatker support, and just overall layed-back stock cars.

I'm glad to see someone who knows about cars and doesnt just bash on cars. Because its not what they drive. I have a Hyundai elantra which has the beta and will be turboed just like the pic I posted. And without the turbo I get street cred. By the way I just got a sentra and its nice I havent done anything yet but stock 2 stock comparing my Hyundai is much quicker. Even more since its Modded
