Re: F...Toyota

My brother just bought a 2011 Hyundai Sonata and loves it...says when compared to all the cars he looked at it was the best bang for the $$$. The Japanese auto makers better step up, the Koreans and Americans are gunning for them big time.

The new Sonata is a nice car. I am particularly impressed with its upcoming 2.0L turbo. It makes 275 horsepower (with nearly identical torque numbers), gets 34mpg, and runs on 87 octane. Those numbers just do not belong in the same sentence, but Hyundai did it. Props to them. If it proves to be reliable over the long run, it will become a legend.

Yeah, they're doing it big...it's getting great reviews. I was just watching the review video from Edmunds just now...checkout 1:50 min in:

Huh? Where did you come up with that assumption???

Anyway, Jeep has put out some very reliable automobiles over the years. The old AMC-designed 2.5 and 4.0 engines were very reliable. There are many YJ, WJ, TJ, and XJs still on the road with several hundred thousand miles on them. Those engines are some of the most bulletproof designs ever produced. They may not be the most efficient or the most powerful, but I would say that they were/are a benchmark for quality when it comes to reliability.

When Chrysler bought Jeep quality went down the drain.

Man, I've never seen a car's interior and exterior fall apart faster than my father's 1998 Chrysler 300. Disgusting.

They do seem to run forever. If you do drop a tranny in a Wrangler or Cherokee, they're always easy to find a replacement locally.

Re: F...Toyota

At this point any recall Toyota has makes news.

For the record they repaired my 4Runner the bill was around $5k (zero out of pocket for me). If Ihad taken it to my local wrench it would have been a cheaper repair since he diagnosed the correct issue right off the bat. The dealer just kept throwing parts at my car en till it stopped making the noise.

In the end the issue is fixed and I am keeping the truck for now.
