Next 5-10 yrs, i can bet they will be right up there in the Top 3.

About Ford - its all going to be looking down the drain...in the next couple of years.. So maybe 5 yrs later if someone reads your post, he would be thinking of BANNING you for bad taste !
this is your car isn't it???? JUST KIDDING....

Don't get me wrong mate...i am assuming you own/owned a Hyundai...

there is a reason why this car is here...because of someone @#@#%%# decided to go ahead and make his IKON look like a SONATA...

And just because US's JD power ranked some HYUNDAI higher than a FORD does not mean they would be up in the TOP 3.

and i would still propose banning anyone who is $#@# to do this to their car... NO HARD FEELINGS!!

I saw that orange ikon sometime back.
Though it is not that appealing to the eye,it could be better.
The sides look nice with the overall design.

I think we should not call them "BAD" cars but "Wierd",because someone has put an effort to make his dream come true but couldnt make of a top quality due to lack of experience or money and it hurts when someone says your creation is not worth spitting on.
Thats what I think.
In coming time we will have Wierd looking cars around us but with a great quality of work done.

I was just browsing on tv when i saw a really ugly modded car on star plus, it was a red convertible with sonata headlights and a merc grill and a locally made gt wing at the back!! I think it was an old toyota or something. Anyone else came across it?

in the pic with the orange ikon/sonata ,there is a fiat palio with a huge bull bar.what size "bull" is it wrestling.seems like u guys overlooked that.
and the orange colour reminds me of the toyota supra's colour in the fast & the furious.
guys arent you afraid,the f&f and the 2f2f caused all of these ppl to go for such crappy mods.im scared what the fast & the furious:tokyo drift will lead to.i hope taxi drivers dont end up watchin this movie.before u know it indicas/sumos/qualis will be drifting on our streets

New Sonata? there is nothing original about it... its back is a copy of now old Accord and front is a bad copy attempt of acura TL! it sells here in US cause its concidered a cheap car for the masses.

wonder if any of these guys are current TBHp members?????

if yes, then they should be BANNED for bad taste.... (anyone to second me on that?)

Wake up??? Arrogance???? go for a drive mate...might calm you down!!

You wanna talk sense...open up another topic where SERIOUS STUFF LIKE THIS can be discussed....there is a reason this Hyundai lookalike IKON is here and being discussed.

Honestly, if you think me not liking a Hyundai or some MORON trying to make a FORD look like a HYUNDAI is arrogant......look up the word "arrogance"....You might wanna reconsider about what you have to say.....

In addition to this...Given a choice between a Hyundai and any other big car maker...don't be surprised or go on to calling them arrogant for doing the right thing...

If you still feel i am being arrogant....i can't help it...Deal with it!!!!

Browse through this forum... there already has been a discussion about this topic... and u yourself will see wat people around do think of Hyundai, now.

if a person gets quality at an affordable price then what the hell is wrong with it !!!! Either u are living in the 19th century or havent driven the newest breed of hyundai cars.... im no representatie of hyundai when i say so...but if someone has improved and made an effort in bringing one of the best technologies around the market at a VERY competetive price...i guess they do deserve a pat on their bak rather than cribbing bout wat they have done wrong....

and for God sake dont tell me wat Arrongance means.... see the overall market.... see the trend and the way tht hyundai picked up recently... think bout it ... its not u who decides what products work n what not... the sales figure does the needful....

sorry to be off topic mods...but the comments asked for it

DO NOT EXPECT ME TO LIKE HYUNDAI's....

As a consumer, I DO GET TO DECIDE WHAT PRODUCTS WORK AND DON'T...

AND QUITE FRANKLY, I DO NOT SEE WHAT YOU ARE SO UPSET ABOUT!!!

I NEVER DEBATED THE CAPABILITIES OF HYUNDAI AS A CARMAKER!!!! EVER!!!

I JUST DON'T LIKE THEM...(hope it explains my reason for NOT READING past discussion about YOUR BELOVED HYUNDAI!!!!)
