Re: Who will be the US "Big 3" in 2016?

Hyundai recently outscored Toyota and Honda in a recent consumer survey of initial quality, among new 2006 vehicle owners.

Oh, I haven't looked at anything new. I only buy what I can pay cash for.

They also manufacture large cranes. Toyota is into forklifts. Honda makes lawnmowers. I read recently where Honda is going to begin building aircraft for small business. All three are surely making their mark.

My company has had 2 new Hyundais in the past year and I find that hard to believe. The initial quality to me was above the "Big" 3 but well behind Toyota and Honda. The Santa Fe and the Elantra we have, have many many small but annoying problems within the first 5000 miles.

My 2005 Santa Fe has had zero problems whatsoever. Fit and finish and overall quality just as good as the wife's 2006 Accord.
The only difference might be a *slightly* lower quality of interior materials. However the price differential between similar models (even more so when you factor in the warranty Hyundai comes with) makes this extremely acceptable.

I'd be happy with 10 years from an Azera. My LeSabre is falling apart in five.

Why? Every vehicle will have some sort of problem in ten years The average new vehicle buyer in the US buys another new vehicle in three or four years with 30K to 45K on the clock, in any event. Most of the other new vehicle buyers will do likewise in seven years. Only around 2% of new vehicle buyers keep their vehicles longer than seven years as their primary vehicle. However you are missing the point, Hyundai did indeed outscore Toyota and Honda in that survey of initial quality, among new 2006 vehicle owners, and their vehicles sell for twenty five to thirty percent less.
