  1. Easy there fella. No need to start your membership in this forum off with personal attacks.

    Leave it alone RJ
  2. I believe it was consumer reports saying that hyundai quality is as good as honda.
  3. Stangar,

    SERIOUSLY! Hyundai IS equal in quality to the Honda vehicles. This is no lie. I read this in "AUTOMOTIVE" magazine. Well built Hyundai cars like the Accent, Elantra, Sonata, 300XLG and Santa Fe have given Hyundai the edge on being face to face and equal with Honda on reliability and quality. Find the article and read it for yourself. There are many other articles in other magazines which categorize the Hyundai vehicles to be equal quality to Honda and Toyota also.

    Personally, I have owned and driven both the Hyundai, Honda and Toyota vehicles. There is no difference in quality or reliability. They are all equal. I hate to say this and you probably don't want to hear this, but the Hyundai vehicles have come a loooooong way since the 80's. If you can remember back in the early 70's many Toyota, Honda and Datsun cars had reliability issues as did the Hyundai cars during the 80's. Then in the late 70's and early 80's these same Japanese car companies made big strides to improve and maintain quality and reliability on their cars. The same thing occurred here for Hyundai. All during the early and mid 90's Hyundai improved the quality and reliability on all their cars. I used to own a 82 Toyota Celica, an 85 Honda Civic S and a 97 Toyota Camry. Were they all well built and reliable cars? Yes. I also used to own a 97 Hyundai Accent, a 97 Hyundai Elantra station wagon, and my beautiful porno star wife currently owns a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe AWD SUV. Have all these Hyundai vehicles been reliable and high quality vehicles for us? YES. My sexy wife's Santa Fe has a German built Porsche drivetrain in it. I bet you didn't know that did you? Hyundai's drivetrain for their AWD Santa Fe is manufactured by Porsche. And the Santa Fe is a very durable car. We don't pamper it by any means. It has over 55,600 miles on it and it has been thru lots of abuse. We have had no problems with it whatsoever. As a matter of fact, we have not had any problems whatsoever with any of the Hyundai vehicles which we have owned. And they all had high mileage on them and were all put thru abuse. I am being truthfully honest to you here about our ownership experience with all of our Hyundai vehicles. As a matter of fact, we buy Hyundai cars because they cost LESS to buy than the overpriced Toyotas, Hondas, and Nissans. And on top of that, we get a BETTER warranty with the Hyundai than we would get if we had bought any Toyota, Honda or Nissan vehicle. Why spend more money when you can get a car of equal quality like a Toyota and Honda for LESS MONEY and with a BETTER warranty? These are the 2 biggest reasons why we have not bought a Toyota, Honda or Nissan in the past 8 years. They cost more and don't offer a 10 Year/100,000 mile warranty like Hyundai does. Otherwise, there is nothing else different about the Toyota, Honda and Nissan vehicles than the Hyundai vehicles. I bet that you will knock what I said down, but it doesn't matter. There are many millions of satisfied Hyundai owners like us who will give the same testament as I have about the Hyundai vehicles.

    I don't want to go off the subject here, but I myself prefer to own and drive Mustangs. My sexy hot wife likes Mustangs, but she likes something more practical as an everyday utility vehicle for herself so that's why she owns a Hyundai. I just wanted to clarify myself to Stangar because he has made a mistake and doesn't know what he is saying here about these Hyundai vehicles.

    .... :nonono: Tyler
  4. Ron Jeremy,

    What part of the above statement didn't you understand?
  5. Sorry man. I just wanted to back up my facts about the Hyundai vehicles. That's all. It seems that the other fella in here wanted to challenge me in a debate about this subject. He obviously should do research and back up his information before he says that Hyundai vehicles are not equal in quality like the Japanese automobiles. Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I always back up my arguments with facts before I make a statement about something.
  6. hyundai??

    sorry i must be lost, i was looking for the stangnet forums
  7. I told you to leave it alone, but you had to go and retort to his diarhea of the mouth statement.

    I try to be very forgiving about threads going off topic, but this one has gone a little too far.

    Please get back on topic or I will be forced to :lock:
  8. Yeah you're lost. Go away nothing to see here. Move along, move along. :lol:
  9. Okay. Let's talk ONLY about the Mustang shall we? Let's forget about everything else.
  10. Man theres alot of people looking for a $20K V8 base Stang. I hope Ford is watching this. They probably didn't intend to sell one. Now with all this hype over a mistake, people think the cars going to be under $20K when in actuality its more like $27K give or take. The new car might not sell because of disappointed customers. :p
  11. Yes there are a lot of people that may be disappointed. But if they don't realize that it was a mistake to get their hopes up without facts. Then I have no pity for them. I doubt it will sell poorly because a few people jumped to conclusions.
  12. if it was a mistake why no corrections. it is sated in numerous places that there will be a v8 starting under $20,000. that would be a huge mistake and you think ford would fix a mistake like that. especially coming at one of the biggest auto shows in the world!
  13. All I know of is possibly 2 videos were it is mentioned. No other facts on the matter has been brought up. But if you can find other sources please post them.
  14. You may need to refind that quote. Cause all I'm getting is.

    Sorry, the page you're trying to reach is temporarily unavailable or the page may no longer exist.
  15. I have tried to get to that thread but have not been able to access or find it. Can you give me anymore info? Thanks.
  16. the link is at

    in the forums section under Free For All if you want the link. for some reason i can't get it here to work.

    i took a screenshot of the section of the website. that's the best i can do so far. still trying.

  17. That was a miss quote by J. Mays. He said "200 and 300 HP BOTH for under $20,000" At no time did he actually say that the GT would be under $20,000. That is why this thread was created. To speculate about a base model V8 car much like the LX 5.0 of the Fox body years.
  18. who said it was a miss quote???

    i have seen nothing official stating a miss quote? this webpage is still up and running. saying that. that is a HUGE misquote you think something would have been brought out o fix it :shrug:
