Were you complaining about these sorts of lawsuits when GM had to pay
out millions as a result of the side saddle gas tank Class Action
Lawsuits? There was never any statistical evidence to back up the
claim that those tanks were more dangerous than frame mounted tanks,
yet GM still had to pay million in civil judgements (like you say,
millions to lawyers and discount coupons to truck owners - a CROCK).
My snail mail May 2010 Motor Trend magazine has an article about Hyundai
Sonata cars.On the front cover it says, America's Next Best Seller?

I bought a used 2006 Sonata and it's a very nice car. For most people,
Hyundai isn't on their radar as far as a new or used car purchase. My
guess is that will change. The car has made a believer out of me.
The interior feels a lot bigger than my old 99 Camry and the fit and
finish of this made in Montgomery Alabama vehicle looks to be very good.
My impression is that it's a heavy, solid car. The DHOC 3.3L V6 with
variable valve timing is a bit intimidating maintenance-wise but it's a
powerful, smooth engine capable of 0 to 60 times of under 8 seconds.
I just wanted a comfortable family sedan but this car is really more
than I have a right to expect i.e., stability control, 6 airbags, heated
seats, automatic temperature control, non-strut suspension, alloy wheels
with Michelin Pilot MXM4 tires, power everything. Heck, there's even a
compass on the mirror with 3 buttons, the function of which, I haven't a
There's no telling what my experience with this car will be in the
future but right now, I'm looking like the smartest car buyer around.
Why not? People pay that much for a thinly disquised Camry all the
The starting price on the Genesis Coupe is only $22,000. The top of
the line model starts out at $30,500. I added everything I could and
only got the MSRP to $33,205 (including freight, but not taxes and

NHTSA should fine itself. I am sure Toyota had a unintended
acceleration problem and I am sure Toyota worked to minimize the NHTSA
response to the complaints of unintended acceleration, BUT NHTSA had
tons of complaints and was warned by State Farm Insurance that there
was a problem. NHTSA decided to accept a half-baked Toyota explanation
and let things slide. Only after the press jumped on Toyota did NHTSA
go into ass covering mode and try to pretend they were shocked that
there was a problem.
If NHTSA had done it's job in 2007, there would have been no media
feeding frenzy over Toyota UA this year.
