  1. Just saw a commercial during the Super Bowl for the Hyundai Genesis!
    Too bad i can't afford to buy one, so i have to settle for the Sonata,
    but that Genesis is a beauty!! Hyundai has come a long long long
    way!!!

    Yea, it's beautiful but you have to ask yourself what are these car
    companies thinking? Introduce a car with 375 horsepower on premium gas at
    $3.25 a gallon instead of a smaller diesel powered car that we sane people
    want? I say 'sane' because there are those of you out there with the 'I can
    afford it so I'm going to get it' mindset that has the rest of us sane
    people forced into larger vehicles just because 'we want some protection in
    case we get hit by one of the behemoths that surround us on the highways'.
    Legislate and tax the big SUV's off the highways and see how quickly small
    cars will proliferate. Oh how I hate yuppies!

  3. Yea, it's beautiful but you have to ask yourself what are these car
    People with too much money and no regard for anyone else aren't
    yuppies, they're called idiots. The problem is the Energy Tax Act of
    '79 that's your problem, not "yuppies."

    Yeah - I hate yuppies too. They whine too much about what everyone else
    has, that they don't believe those other people should have. Oh by the
    way - don't blame people with more safe cars for your plight in life. Go
    ahead and buy that tin can. After all, it does not matter if other cars on
    the road are big enough to harm you - you already placed yourself in that
    position with your decision to purchase a cheap piece of junk that something
    as benign as a tree along side of the road would threaten.

    What an idiot.. I hate "nanny types" who think they know what's best for
    everyone. I'll spend MY MONEY as I see fit.You want to drive a go-cart so
    the government should outlaw SUV's and trucks? That's just what we
    need...More nanny laws to regulate behavior..Was you born stupid or is it
    something you work on daily.I can just imagin trying to haul all my tools
    and materials around in a Yugo...You want to drive around with your knees on
    your chest,fine go for it but leave me the hell alone....I suppose next you
    will be whining that my house is to big as well and we need laws to regulate
    square footage per person....Socialist moonbat.....

    That's one way to look at the matter. Another is that the real idiots are
    those who blindly think they can drive around in the lightest, smallest,
    most vulnerable pieces of junk, with a singular focus on the economics of
    their vehicle, and then blame others who actually care about other factors
    (like survivability) for the consequences of their decisions.

    Long ago I lived in Okinawa for three years. At the time, a 60's Ford
    Falcon was a large car, and you'd see something like it from time to time on
    the roads. Mostly, you saw and you drove things more akin to a motorcycle
    with a cheap frame and body around it, and mounted on four wheels instead of
    two. Common engines were indeed a 360cc motorcycle engine. Fuel economy
    was pretty darned good. Safety wasn't. Those vehicles didn't have to
    encounter an SUV, or a pickup, or a full frame vehicle to present a real
    danger to the occupants. Anything more significant than a strong wind
    presented a significant danger to the occupants. "Real cars" of the time
    which were a lot lighter and smaller than an Accord is today were a very
    real threat to these things. The point is that there is a point where this
    blind pursuit of economy, ignorant of all other factors is as idiotic as
    anything else. These voices that cry out about how endangered they are by
    "big behemoths" are nothing short of idiotic.

  7. That's one way to look at the matter. Another is that the real idiots are
    Right. That's why old people drive in the biggest boats they can find.
    Your point is very dull.

  8. What an idiot.. I hate "nanny types" who think they know what's best for
    Why should the rest of America pay for your overconsumption of gas? So
    what if you have the money, you anti-americanism stinks.

    Yes, it is cool. But it's not big enough or expensive enough for me. I'm
    waiting for Hyundai to move into production their concept car, the Hyundai
    "Tanker". It has tracks instead of tires and sports an optional 50mm
    cannon. That'll piss off the eco-loony Democrats and also make the
    Republicans in the SUV's think twice before they tailgate.

    Is that a forward, rear or swivel mounted canon? I personally prefer
    the forward mounted to clear the left-lane laggards! With a good strong
    rear bumper tailgaters won't bother me.

    I live in canuck-ville where gas cost a lot more and drive a sanata fe, i
    will not trade it in for a accent to save a few bucks on gas...
    I would love a diesel Santa fe, but do not think we will see one anytime
    soon. I see too many compact cars smashed to pieces when they are involved
    in an accident.
    I prefer to keep my family safe in a suv.

  14. I guess you can't read either...I use my truck for WORK...Look it up if you
    I own my own house and I drive an 02 Sonata.

    I understand people who drive trucks for work (i.e., construction,
    carrying payload, etc.). No one needs a crew-cab V8 with 8ft bed or
    dualie to get groceries or drive to the office. Same for Hummers, same
    for Navigators, same for blah blah blah. But, people can do whatever
    they want with their money. If you can afford it, good for you. Don't
    screw the rest of the American populous in the interim with you
    obsession with waste and consumerism. Exxon is happy that you've
    helped them break a global record for profit on gas this past year.
    Yay for you. May the Arab Oil Czars put their blessing on you and your
    family. Allah Ahkbar.

    The fact of the matter is, if you took the time to understand that the
    point of the Energy Tax Act, when created, was to exempt large trucks
    from having to have the same gas mileage as passenger cars do. Back
    THEN, people used light trucks for utilitarian purposes. That isn't
    true today. Car makers use this gaping loophole to make Hummers,
    Navigators, and other vehicles and call them "trucks" because of their
    weight or the way the square footage come out. They are as utilitarian
    as tits on a bull. Nowadays, people don't buy Hummers or Navigators or
    crew-cab trucks because they use them for "work", they buy them
    because they can and have all the money in the world to blow on gas or
    diesel. Gas that their cars consume at twice the rate that my car is
    legally bound to consume. I'm only saying the playing field should be
    level because while the loophole exists, the car companies aren't
    going to stop making vehicles that don't have to adhere to the law
    because they don't HAVE to. It's unfathomable that Bush even signed
    the damn legislation to make all fleet vehicles get 35MPG by 2020.

    Why should someone's "work" truck consume at twice the rate my car
    does and not pay any penalty just because of a loophole in a law?
    Nobody drives Fiats in this country and to say people drive "go-karts"
    shows us how much of a manly man you are by insulting the group. Let
    me guess your demographic: Construction / Contractor / Developer?
    Union & Overpaid but first to complain about market competition from
    the Chinese (or anyone else who'll do the exact same work for less)?
    Tell everyone to Buy American but shop at Wal-Mart / Target / "Big Box
    Inc."? Am I close?

  17. And nobody needs a Sonata either. What a gas hog when you can ride a
    Dude, the 08 4-cyl Sonata gets better gas mileage and has more
    horsepower than my 02. 09 Sonata is supposed to be even better. I am
    hoping my 02 lasts until Hyundai comes out with their Hybrids (2011?
    2012?).

    You don't even see the irony in it all. I never mentioned global
    warming. I am talking about rate of consumption. Big difference.
    Please continue to support the Chinese and Arab economies, they're
    depending on you.
