      Actually an NSX is one of the few Japanese cars I'd ever consider. Quasi exotics are fun to invest money into.. For a commuter car, never again.

      Oh god the suspense is killing me. I can't wait to hear what you drive now and why you won't drive Japanese cars. Please share.

      Gotta admit, their bumper-to-bumper warranties are pretty lucrative as a DD.

The CVT was slipping on inclines, the whole car was shaking, and the steering made awful groaning and popping noises when he pulled into his spot. It was horrifying...this car maybe has 20k on it, and I'm going way high there as it is less than a year old.
      You're just describing a post-2000 Nissan.

      Besides the GT-R and maybe the Murano, I really do put Nissan below Honda/Toyota/Mazda/even Subaru, which is ironic when considering Infiniti.

      Actually good luck with that. Hyundai fought our warranty claims on our 2015 Elantra tooth and nail. My ex now has a Veloster and they are doing the same thing with the electrical issues it is having, as well as the interior falling apart. I truly believe the 10-year warranty is just to get buyers in the door and secure a sale. Same for Mitsubishi and their Outlanders, which also the dealer my parents bought their Outlanders refuse to warranty issues with the transmission computers.

      I absolutely agree. They stay in business by having great customer service but their Nissan line is just terrible, although I'll add the Z and Juke to the list of cars that sort of redeem them.

      But yeah, the Versa and Sentra are terrible, the Altima totally gave it up to the Mazda6, and their trucks/SUVs are poor alternatives to Toyotas.

      Are you serious????

      Ugh, glad my dad leased his Hyundai then. He won't ever buy another car again (I'm glad since he can't maintain cars worth a damn heh).

      The theme of the thread, huh? I've had a few experiences with the Hyundai warranty:

      2001 Elantra:
      59,xxx miles - free rear shocks, after I asked for a free inspection before the bumper-bumper ran out
      99,xxx miles - free CV joint and boot, after I the same for the 100k powertrain <- this one really surprised me
      No questions or issues with either of those, as it was the dealers who suggested the repair be done. The car wasn't bought or serviced at either.

      2012 Tucson:
      59,xxx miles - one of the steering wheel audio control button labels was a bit worn and squeaked slightly, so I asked for a new one. Nope. I persisted, and it went to two or three levels of management and then Hyundai corporate, and nope. "It still preforms the intended function". BS. Is the squeak in the design parameters? Jerks. My Si labels were gone by 50k and it felt like you could push the buttons through the wheel if you halfway tried, but it was the principal. To me, bumper-to-bumper means every. single. thing. Oh well. Lexus replaced an entire $600+ headunit for the same worn label reason at 50k, but hey, that's Lexus. All of the buttons on my Infiniti are still perfect and squeak-free, so I guess my Japanese Dodge wins again.

      Honestly though, the cars I've owned from Hyundai have been well made and reliable, so the warranty is kind of irrelevant. I get why they did/continue to do it, but I've not found it to be necessary or really a selling point. I'd still buy one with a ****ty 3/36 that most everyday basic "respected" manufacturers give you.

      Yes it does, this is the MFingCarLounge bish.

      That said, my Soul had one warranty claim (thus far, still on warranty), the radio (I don't remember what went on it, just that I was told to get it fixed). The radio was replaced no issue whatsoever. But the dealer chipped teh dash paint getting the radio out. I was told to complain, I did, the dealer hired a third party specialty contractor to fix it (I imagine they ate that cost). Not once did anyone try to deny any fix. Radio still works, dash looks new.
