wow, audi junkie. your buying new rides every year now. the honda accord got dumped?


I was in a weird spot with it. After perfecting the paint situation, so idiot whacked it with a bike while parked in NYC. So, I could either paint it AGAIN or live with it. I saw the 1.9% offer on Tiguan, which I liked anyway, and we really missed having a SUV, after selling the CRV to my cousin.

So I got +$4k more trade than I owed, put it in my pocket (well, paid off a credit card) and financed the whole VW at invoice price, making LOWER payments in the process. Got a manual 6-sp trans for fun factor and price. The thing is incredible.

Some people "get it" and some don't, and I couldn't really care less. Some of the brands mentioned on this thread have absolutely no "soul". Either you know what that is or you don't. I learned to drive on a Porsche at 9 years old in 1973, so...I "get it".

This is the reason we lack any late model wrong wheel drive Eastern tech in our driveway. I cannot stand "transport appliances"!

Thank God we have some choices still...

I think the Outlander has a lot better rep than the Endeavor.

One is made by Mitsu in Japan, the other is made at the DSM plant in Illinois. I'd take the Hyundai on a whim, even though my old boss got burned by their Santa Fe BAD. The motor started burning oil and killed the cat 3 years later. They junked it.

And Audi Junkie's scored a pretty good deal too.

And some people don't read the MASSIVE warnings about PROFOUND VW [censored] poor quality issues. The warnings are there in ALL car magazines about how BAD VW is, yet some people continue to buy them, even doing stupid things like financing the entire amount.

Wow....

If that is "getting it" then I prefer not to "get it".

The Smart Money NEVER buys VW...even the Korean makes score MUCH higher in quality then the VW brand.

Funny how amazing it is find all kinds of kooks on the internet...especially those that burn through tons of $$ replacing cars ever other year or worse...I guess to "get it" one has to be stupid with finances.

And the only "soul" one should be concerned with are the souls of their children and wife...because paying big $$ for one of the most poorly made cars on the planet is to not care about their souls. REVELATION FROM GOD: Cars have no soul...hello?!?

By the way Audi-boy, nobody ask you to post your financial mistake here ;-)

I'm not going to run out and buy a VW either, but I'm not going to rant and rave about it...
Audi Junkie likes an SUV with some sport. I'm sure he is well aware of the potential extra cost of owning a VW SUV over a hyundai. The hyundai suv MAY be cheaper to own but the VW will always be more engaging to drive. If driving pleasure is worth 0 to you then buy the cheapest most reliable vehicle... Other people may choose differently.

The point of this whole thread was the OP wanting opinions over a Hyundai or a Mitsubishi SUV. Thats where it should have stayed IMHO.

I like gm and ford but the warantees and the fact that they dont give good deals cancelled them out..
Looking for some input


I have a 2006 Sante Fe with over 300K KM's on it (180K miles) and I have only replaced the battery, brakes and an oxygen sensor.

Best truck I have ever owned and I would definitely buy another!

Too bad your meds are wearing out.

Last I checked, VW has the highest resale and the Koreans the lowest. The Korean brands are hardly pioneers in automobiles either. The fact their owners think they are great is actually a source of amusement. Every Hundai owners I know, their last car was an even more miserable wretch.

As far as the Tiguan, Audi can sell more of their version, the Q5 than they can make. It's outright hilarious to even try to compare to a Hundai or Mitsubishi (one of the worst vehicles on the planet).

It's just like I said, the Kool Aid drinkers are so insecure about their lame vehicles, they have only their own acolades to refer to. In this case, the accolade is a psychotic rant, it reflects well on your group.

As for the OP, buy whichever vehicle is cheaper, that's probably all you care about or you'd be looking elsewhere.

Here's a good example of the difference, low-speed crash tests.

A series of slow crashes are done, back into a pole, bump the corner into a wall, etc. Then add up the repair costs.

Vehicles like Sorento, Focus, Mazda 6 costs like $4500 to repair. Slo-mo pics it looks like the thing had C4 packed behind the bumper, while cars like the A6, Beetle and Golf just bounced right off. $0-$50 to maybe $200 in repairs for the same accident that cost $4500 on p0s vehicles.

Still, some people don't get it. Watch some of the high speed crashes if you still wonder.
