Up to the way Hyundai has become a direct competitor of Toyota and Honda. Now Hyundai are very reliable, technologically advanced and nice-looking cars.

Are Hyundai's good used cars?
The option of buying a used Hyundai always looks very attractive, especially when you’re a prudent and thrifty buyer. Right after a freshly sold Hundyai leaves the dealership gate, it costs up to 20% cheaper. But has it become that way less reliable, less technologically advanced, or of a poorer design? These cars have proven their quality and reliability, so the price of used cars is keeping up at a pretty solid level, even for 6-10-year-old cars.
