  4. Please don't top-post. Message rearranged for easier reading
    IIRC, Hyundai makes their own engines and transmissions *now*, but
    earlier (late 80's-mid 90's), some of their cars used engines and
    transmissions that were designed by Mitsubishi and may have been
    Mitsubishi-manufactured. I don't know the details; I wasn't that
    interested in Hyundai cars until ~2002. Details/cites/whatever from
    people who know more about the engines/transmissions used in earlier
    Hyundai models would be appreciated.

    Seamus, it might help if you were a little more verbose in asking your
    original question. Why do you want to know who makes the engines and
    transmissions? Reliability? Servicing of an older car? If we knew
    that, we might be able to tell you more useful info, or something. is snarky and abrasive,
    but it's a good guide to asking good questions on Usenet and getting
    good answers. HTH,

    I've recently read that in the Santa Fe 's the transmission is perhaps made
    by Hyundai but is a design by Porche and their AWD is from Acura...perhaps
    someone else could confirm or dispute this?

    Tiptronic/Shiftronic computer licensed from Porsche. The transmission
    is nothng special.

    AWD from Subaru, the leaders in AWD design and implimentation.

    Heh... I've driven vehicles from both Subaru and Porsche. If Hyundai
    got anything from them they managed to f- it up pretty badly by the
    time it made it into any of their cars.

    No, the tranny is not a Porsche design and AFAIK they don't design
    automatic transmissions.
    The AWD system design and/or the actual hardware is either from the
    former Steyr-Daimler-Puch or BorgWarner.

  11. Hi, Seamus.

    What Bob has requested is that you follow net etiquette
    ("netiquette") to make it easier for people to understand the
    thread. He's asked you to post your addition to a previous post
    at the bottom instead of at the top. Personal emailing is casual,
    and people (including myself) often top-reply. In that case, the
    other party already knows what he sent -- he's got the context in
    his head, and you're just firing off a quick answer -- and a
    grunt can do fine between two friends.

    In this case, you're in a public forum, so other people can zero
    in better if they can follow what you're quoting from top-down.
    The other thing to consider is that the newsgroup service that
    some people use, usually provided by their ISP, may toss an
    earlier post. So, carrying relevant parts of a thread above your
    addition will give everyone a shot at the context. This is
    especially true if you're replying after a few days have passed.
    On the other hand, large quotes get unwieldy when the thread
    becomes long, and it's a good idea to clip out a lot of what's
    come before in such a case.

    In this post, I've eliminated everything from the previous thread
    because I'm following up on an aside. It's the poster's call as
    to how to write. However, the guiding beacon should always be to
    put oneself in the _reader's_ shoes and write clearly so that the
    other person doesn't have to work hard to understand you.

    Regarding HTH's request that you provide more "meat" in your
    question, I can't agree. I think that he wanted to a bit more
    context, since there's some intersting history that he can
    provide regarding Hyundai's engines. This may be similar to an
    explanation of how Yamaha got from making pianos to making
    motorcycles and stereo equipment, and OE CD drive components.
    Korean corporate histories are probably full of interesting
    information like this, and probably family intrigue and
    infighting as well: corporate soap operas. I feel that your
    question was clear, and an appropriate answer, I think, would
    have been the first one that you got.

    I hope that I've been clear, and I also hope that I've gotten the
    names of your responders correct -- I have a real hard time
    keeping people's "handles" and names straight. In fact, it's
    become too difficult for me, and I just wing it. At this point,
    I'd prefer that everyone just use the names that their parents
    gave them, and stop with the handles altogether.
