I remember in the early 90's my aunt had a Hyundai Excel. A gutless pile! Then in 2000 she bought a new Elantra which had quite a few repairs over the years but still ran well when it was let go around 190,000 miles. how good was their quality 10 years ago and forward through today. Honda is a good gold standard. They build cars that people commonly get 200-300k before retiring. How do the newer Hyundai's compare? How good is their manufacturing ect.
