Yep, Hyundai has really improved...it used to be 10 years ago if you wanted to make an emergency stop in a Korean car, you just had to turn on the AC!

My friend just bought one, too and loves it. Great gas mileage and great price too, not to mention the 100,000 mile/10 year warranty!

Best.

Your welcome kind stranger >>0.0<<
,I got the cheaps ---
AND I
I bought the Elantra $15,300 CASH walk out price .

which means i get a internet quote >>>signed both by salesman and head guy
I print it and also email it to the cars shop.
I sent the car shop that email quote 3x a day until I show up .

so they gave me in writing a full quote that covers every possible charge
$15,002.00


54 MINUTES LATER IT JUMPED TO 16,700- $$$$$
I kid you not
I Counted out 15.3 k in cash and laid it out on the table .

I left the building alone and called my wife to stay with the kids and wait for me .
andI then wandered the surrounding parking LOTS looking at 5 or 6 great models made by other guys .
,
The CAR salesman chased me DOWN huffing and puffing handed me a bagel with creamy cheese and a decent cup of black joe .
Man they tasted great . He then said dude here's your keys !!!
So i paid 400 over the quote . i still beat the system a bit .
Ya know.

My car is a 1999 blue jeep
Nice .



if only apple could make a child proof computer and a nano phone to boot

peace dude

3. Walmart
4. Amazon
5. Verizon
6. ATT
7. Coca- Cola
100. Microsoft
500. McDonalds
10000. Marlboro

Their survey of millions based on relevant criteria versus your own personal opinion which is basically worthless to everyone but you.

Good for you, Brucep. We just sold our Jeep Wrangler (15/mpg). Got a Honda CRV (25mpg). Kind of wish we had bought the Prius (50/mpg), But the CRV is more versatile.

Are every brand you have ever heard of, because Apple's got the number 1 spot.

So every single brand is noteworthy?
There's "noteworthy" brands then there's everything else that is not noteworthy such as "Fred's Socks, Inc" and ""Junky Crapola, LLC."

Presumably they meant "no change" (so: N/C).

Perhaps it means that they were not in the top 100 last year, so there is no way to measure the change from what they were.

I just like the operating system that i use, to be like the country i live in, a free enterprise. Is that asking too much?
