I think it's safe to say that gone are the days of the Hyundai Pony. My buddy at the time had one....fuel gauge didn't work. Ran out of gas a lot. But gawddamn if it didn't start reliably in -40 deg weather.... But I digress Toyota has said that Hyundai is the company that they are the most nervous about. My neighbour has a Sante Fe....fairly new I think. I peeked in the window the other day. Pretty nice inside. much nicer than the Pony. And they do offer a warranty that cannot be ignored. Back in the early days, Hondas and Toyotas were a joke. Obviously not anymore. And I think the stigma attached to Hyundai is beginning to lift too. So....would you buy one?
