Just like it except that it's a Korean made butt-ugly POS Sedan

As much as I despise Huyndai/Kia they are playing their cards right to earn a solid reputation in the U.S. Everytime we post about a new car release on here, everyone always points out how it's dull and lacks power or whatever. Well, these guys are filling in the gap. I just can't wait to see what happens once the crs start to age and owners try to take advantage of the 10yr/100k warranty.
Anyway, there is only so much respect you can earn for your brand when you have someone else designing, styling etc. your cars for you.

Yeah, 20 years after our cars were designed, though. Lots of entry level sedans have more power than our cars ever did.

And 20 years later, this thing will probably perform at least as well, if not slightly better than anything Ford has with 2 doors in the same price range. IRS, 6-speed manual, available LSD from the factory, and Track models with beefy brakes and suspensions. The 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder engines in the Genesis Coupe make more power than the Mustang 6-and 8-cylinders, respectively. The I-4 models should weigh around 3300 lbs and the V6 should weigh around 3400.

People really should look out for those 4-cylder models, though. 220 turbocharged HP from the factory... and we've all seen what the aftermarket does with factory-boosted cars. :eek:

Not by a long shot. The korean car companies are worse about backwards engineering than the domestic manufacturers. They promote sales with warranty terms that are nothing shy of trickery. They specialize in disposable cars. Use it for 5 years and throw it away. It is your exact thinking that has caused half of our economy's problems. I put 230,000 hard miles on my car before I took the motor out because of oil consumption. Try doing that on a kia or hyundai.

There are numbers to back this up? Because without hard data, I'd like to go on record as saying that any way you slice it, gravity doesn't exist.

That is the reason I said korean . The quality on both of them has fallen as well. In the 80's they were built better.
