Ok, so I have just re-read the rest of the Accent Vs. Supra Board, why did i do that, i dont know i was just bored i guess, but I was just wondering why some of you guys are so defensive, I mean someone comes to your board and says something and immeadiatly after that, five or six of you jump down his throat for no reason, I know that some people came on this board just to make fun of you, but i know that I came with good intentions. It just seems odd to me that some of you get so pissed off if someone harrasses you, but you wont wait a second to hear out what they have to say. You just critisize(sp?) their opinion. Now I am not trying to start a fight but i think that some of you need to hear out other people before you verbally abuse them. I, however can understand why you picked on that issusivic guy because he was just being a dick, but for others, how do you expect them to come back if you just make them feel like **** for saying something that may not agree with you. All I am saying is that you should think a little bit before saying things.

I drive a 2000 Ford ZX2 SR, my car is a piece of ****. Because it is not made by Hyundai.

ZX2 owner...here's the issue. There's ALOT of knowledgable people on this board. More knowledgable than you think actually. So we get alot of people coming on here not only to bash Hyundai, but to also talk **** about why THEIR car is better than ours. As you probably know...when Hyundai first came out, they developed a reputation for having bad cars. It wasn't Hyundai's fault. It was Mitsubishi's fault because Mitsu was building the engines. Now that Hyundai has made a complete 180° and is doing it's own things, the quality is very high. We know this because we're Hyundai owners. But alot of people in the world still think Hyundai is crap and that reputation still stands. We get very defensive because people don't do their homework and they really have no idea how good our cars are now, or what we have available. That's why we get defensive. We try to show people that contrary to what they think Hyundai is....the reputation that once stood strong..is not like that any more.

We don't mean to jump on everyone's case just to be jerks. It's just annoying when people come on here talking smack about us when they have absolutely no idea what our cars are capable of. Then again...like EVERY board out there...you will always have pricks that go off on EVERYONE and there's nothing you can do about it. If you're a peaceful person, and come on here and act really cool, then no one will have issues with you. Also...it's really hard sometimes to tell if someone comes on here, talks smack, and then turns out to be joking. If you do that..make sure you post that you ARE joking, and no one will go off as bad. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Well said Lo&Show I agree with you that it's hard to know whether or not a person is joking around or not.

2klsho is right on the money. We do not like people coming in here and bashing Hyundai when they do not know their facts. Hyundai does have a bad repuation, but as 2klsho said, its from Mitsubishi. People come in here and bash it because that is the stereotype. EXCUSE ME...WAS the stereotype. The Excel is a piece of ****. For the most part, their cars fell apart although I know a few Excel owners who say they never have trouble with theirs. Go figure. Since the emergence of the Elantra in 92 and the Accent in 95, they proved to be reliable transportation. The only problem with the Elantra is that if you didnt change the timeing belt promptly at 55k miles, you could risk damaging the engine. But other then that, they were as reliable as any other economy import car.

Ok, your turn. First of all your a FORD owner. Lets review Fords autmotive history...The company that put a price on human life(Ford put a price on a human life...$200,000) with the Pinto incident, saying that it wasn't cost efficent to put a piece between the bumper and gas tank to keep the car from exploding when a rear end collision occured, the company that willingly and knowingly kept dangerous tires (Firestone Wilderness) on the roads for 8 years after deaths of people and lawsuits, finally decided to check and replace them free of charge, the car company that has the most recalled automobiles in the history of any automobile manufacturer, the company that has "brake rotors may become detached from caliper" (2000 Ford Focus), "wrong hub causing lugnuts to become loosen CAUSING REAR WHEELS TO COME OFF" (2000 Ford Escape/Mazda Tribute. and now, a new one (not surprising) blinker stalk has a faulty switch that can short out and cause a fire (All 2000/2001 Ford models).

Look at all those problems. And you want to call Hyundai ****? At least they were ****, and they have a legitimate exucuse of Mitsubishi making their engines. But they realize that the american people won't take garbage. They cleaned up their act and now they are as good as any other car company out there. Whats Fords excuse? At least Hyundais recalls were not life threatening. At least with Hyundais, they don't put a pricetag on the person behind the wheel.

ok, now again, i started this to answer a question, i never said that hyundais were bad or anything, and all of a sudden people start telling me things how dumb i am for buying a ford because they, not me, have a problem with being stupid, i like my car, i like how much i paid, and i dont think that there is anything wrong with either, now this forum started out ok, but it has turned into another problem ridden thread with people be-littling people left and right, and by the way how did i get "BURNED" as you so put it?

Nah man, see, I don't care whether you are bashing anyone's car or anything like that.

I used to work for Ford and I know how crappy their service, parts and overall cars are. I used to hear from Ford reps that their cars suck...

but if you like your car and it gives you exactly what you want (confort, potential... blah, blah), that's great. After all, happiness is what counts, right?

Let's not point blame to any other cars.

That's childish.

ZX2, you know what I say to people who say Hyundai is ****? Test drive a 2003 Tiburon when it comes out. You'll be AMAZED.

thanks rudy, and to tell you the truth about hyundais, i never really liked them to begin with, i drove a 98 and a 2001 tib when i was looking for cars, and i really didnt like the way it felt, not enough head room, it just wasnt comfortable, and the transmission felt like it was gonna fall out of the car, i dont know if that is the same with all hyundais but i know it was true for these two, but they were used so who knows. And i have read a few things on the 2003 tib, but i am not real sure about it, could someone give me some info on it please.

I drive a 2000 Ford ZX2 SR, bright ****ing yellow

my car is very nice and it very limited production so it will be worth a hell of a lot more money than any of your 8000 dollar "investments" and what i said earlier about not being a dick, well i am, so i hate hyundais, they are slow, no matter what you do to them, <hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

But there was an apology after those posts so we will leave it at that.
