Re: You´re not gonna believe this Asian SportsCar! It´s hot hot hot

Me as a korean, I think that Daewoo just simple sux ass and should be outta the market already... Also, Hyundai and Kia are improving hellalot they used to be crap and I felt shame to be Korean in terms of cars... Well now they are improving... take the J.D Power and Associates Prize that Hyundai got for the Sonata. If they keep on increasing quality they might even compete with the Japanese market

Not only the Sonata, but some of the other vehicles have gotten high praise from JD Power, Auto Pactific and numerous Auto magaines. Customer service has improved so much its giving the top three aware that there is a another company closing in on them. With the partnerships that Hyundai has going with DC and others. It surely will be interesting to see whats coming down the pipeline in the next few years. Its funny how Hyundai was critisized over the 10 year warranty and now almost everyone is trying to do the same. Do I sense trendsetter here.

As for associating low price with lack of quality, there might be some truth in that, but it also depends on where the vehicle is being manufactured. Comparing the cost of producing a vehicle here in North America with the unions asking for more and the CEOs charging too much against the ones being produced in Japan and Korea one sees that the is way less and thus allows them to place more optional stuff on a vehicle as standard. This in turn brings more value or bang for the buck as they say, to the consumer. More and more folks are realizing this and is why Japan is such a success it is today. This is also happening to Korea.

As for the poll itself. I am rather disappointed that such a grouping was compiled. There is no way the Daewoo should be grouped with the others. Its way underpowered and not even as stylish as the others, although its unique in its own way. Being that it is a concept vehicle, the poll should have compared it with other concept vehicles of its class.

Hyundai, Kia, and even Daewoo have made competitve products for years. The Daewoo-badged products sold in the US a few years ago were quite competitive with their Japanese counterparts. While I've been a strong supporter of Hyundai and Kia products for the past 5-7 years, there are many more owners of early Excels and Sephias who would defend the brand back into the early 1990s and late 1980s. While Hyundai/Kia vehicles (and the Suzuki and Chevrolet branded Daewoo products) are still improving, they are very competitive now. I've recommended Sonatas, Elantras, and Optimas over Toyotas and Hondas on a number occasions.
