Thinking of getting a new car?
Not sure which car or SUV is right for you?
Planning on test-driving three or more different vehicles to see which one is best for you? Phew. I am tired just thinking about that. Who has the time for that? Well here is something that can save you some serious amounts of time.
The above link takes you to a site where you can compare all Hyundais from 2008 to 2015 vs. their competitive brands, model-by-model. You can see it all!
What car has the better Warranty? (OK, that is unfair, we all know Hyundai does.)
All kidding aside, this site is a great wealth of knowledge for you to compare the brands you may be considering. Maybe you will find out that one of the vehicles you were thinking of comparing does not have as many features that are important to you as the other. Maybe just looking at the size specification will let rule something out- before you waste time driving to a dealership, only to find it is not the size you thought.

Hyundai beat out every competitor to earn the distinction of “Most Reliable Manufacturer” in the 2013 CarMD Vehicle Health Index Manufacturer & Vehicle Reliability Ranking. (Not just in the Boston Area, but for all of America.)
Released this week, the annual report provides a ranking of manufacturers and vehicles with the lowest combined “check engine” repair incidents and costs. The Index ranks the top 10 manufacturers, top 100 vehicles overall, top vehicles by category and the most common repairs by make. After two consecutive years of finishing second Hyundai overtook Toyota and drove to the top of the list with its low repair frequency.
“The 2013 CarMD Vehicle Health Index Manufacturer and Vehicle Reliability Ranking looked at data that applies to more than 119 million vehicles, so to earn this ranking is no small feat,” said Leon C. Chen, CEO, CarMD.com Corporation. “We commend Hyundai for its commitment to quality and to its efforts to minimize vehicle operating costs.”
Hyundai had the lowest Index rating of all parent manufactures studied and the second lowest overall repair cost. This year’s Index is based on more than 151,000 specific repairs performed on model year 2003 to 2013 vehicles from Oct. 1, 2012 to Sept. 30, 2013.
