    looks great, but i'd wait a few years to see how reliable it is and if the kinks will be iron'd out.

    1st year model of a new gen car is like beta where the GA are the testers...

    In 2004, Hyundai tied with Honda for initial brand quality (quality of engine parts not factored in) in a survey/study from J.D. Power and Associates, for having 102 problems per 100 vehicles. This made Hyundai second in the industry, only behind Toyota, for initial vehicle quality. The company continued this tradition by placing third overall in J.D. Power's 2006 Initial Quality Survey, behind only Porsche and Lexus.

    over there in japan doesn't mean a thing. things change as they bring cars over here.

    example? toyota altezza. when they brought the is300 over here after the altezza has been around in japan for a couple of years, it had many dumb annoying little problems. not ford-tough problems, but non-lexus like problems. all the bugs were fixed the following year/

    I'd feel like a lot more of a baller in an S550. This hyundai marketing it brilliant. I'd buy it over an Accord definitly.
