I am basing this on the Consumer Report's latest long term reliability report.KING_OF_HILL said:There is nothing high quality about hundai/kie, they are mediocre at the best.
It has nothing to do with culture and everything to do with economics. Hard to afford a bigger vehicle on a salaryman's salary with a punitive auto taxation system(the government really really doesn't want you to own a car, but rather use public transportation system or drive a mini car to save on gas). Those in higher rank either has the company issuing the company car or subsidizing its ownership cost, the lower ranking workers don't get that.Cheery said:I think the culture may have played a big part here. Heard that in Korea, seniority is such a big deal that you should not out-drive your boss, or anyone with a higher position in your work, etc. For example, when your supervisor drives a Sonata, you better get yourself a Elantra or something like that.
