I feel that Hyundai does not like their image, so they are trying to reinvent themselves with products in a different league than they have established. To be honest, I do not see anything wrong with Hyundai cars in general, I just wish the name were more distinct from Honda.

It is like she is getting defensive for no reason.

On the other hand, I do not like their "Upgrade to a Hyundai" campaign, but they would not be doing their job if they did not try to convince us their car was better. Didn't they start the trend of offering longer warranties? I do not know how applicable Chris Farley's line about guarantees was in "Tommy Boy."

Also, their Sonata hybrid is one of the most aerodynamic production cars, and I respect that.
