    Yea, it's beautiful but Hyundai's timing really sucks to offer a 275 HP
    luxury car when everyone (well, not everyone, as some here will chime in)
    wants much better mpg. They have to lease them attractively and you'll also
    see that at car rentals.

    These two show where the majority of people will be looking as gas prices
    keep going up. Notice there are a lot of players coming into the market
    like Subaru, Acura, plus all the normal players. I don't see Hyundai/Kia
    when they have been making diesels forever.

    Oh, I forgot that when I was at the Hyundai dealer getting my gas gauge
    sending unit replaced, I talked to a salesman who said Hyundai WAS
    introducing a diesel next year..... A V8 diesel in their Veracruz SUV!!!
    WTF are they thinking?????

  5. I know four people that have bought new cars in the past three months. None
    were small or got particularly good gas mileage. At a certain income level,
    they just don't care and will pay the going price. They want what they
    want. Lexus, Infiniti, & Acura for this group that I'm referring to. They
    are the target market for the Genesis.

    Oh, of course,, there will always be those people who will buy the biggest,
    fanciest thing they can get just to boost their ego and perceived status.
    I'm talking about 'normal Americans' who care about this country's future.

    This says it all "
    a.. Diesel could help reduce America's petroleum consumption. According to
    officials at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, America could save up
    to 1.4 million barrels of oil per day - an amount equivalent to the oil we
    currently import from Saudi Arabia - if one-third of U.S. cars, pickups and
    SUVs were diesel-powered." It comes from

    Or, those who simply can afford to buy what they want. Your assigning a
    selfish or self centered motive to them does not make that true.

  8. I buy what I can afford and what I want. I don't think I need a fancy car
    to boost my ego, but I happen to like some of the fancy cars and all the
    options. One of my cars is a Sonata, but I opted for the Limited. I spend
    a fair amount of time in my car so I want all the comforts and goodies. I
    will admit though, I rarely open the sunroof so I won't really get my
    money's worth out of it, but the heated leather seats are great. I turn
    them on when I park the car so they will be warm after starting it with my
    remote starter.

    They make some good points. I'd tell you about my Mercedes diesel, but that
    would make me sound like I was stroking my ego and raising my perceived
    status, especially the part about the turbocharger. .

    You seem to be a tiny bit jealous of people that can afford fancy cars.
    What is wrong with fancy?

    Nothing wrong with fancy, but nowadays one must be 'carpolitically
    correct' to be accepted by current thinking standards of the media and like
    minded individuals. That means sacrificing -whatever- needs to be
    sacrificed to satisfy political, ecological, economical,preservational,
    environmental,and morally correct thinking.

    Think 'follow the lemmings'.

    Excellent point. It so happens that those of us who happen to like
    well engineered cars and who like to drive, happen to like cars that
    are a bit more expensive and "fancy". I don't give a crap about ego
    and status, and I certainly don't need to flaunt it. To prove it I
    have owned Hyundais since 1989 -- continuously.

    The genesis Coupe appeals to me because it seems like what I was
    waiting for performance-wise while I enjoyed my 2005 Tiburon GT.

    So what is wring with a V8 Diesel in the Veracruz?

    They do offer diesels in other markets and they are now seeing
    positive response to a V8 engine in their luxury models. The diesel
    will help to offer better fuel mileage in a V8.
