Is it easy to get replacement parts for Hyundai and Kia ?

When I had a problem with my Scion (still do) my email to them ended with
"A Veloster is looking better and better all the time."

Needs a little more HP and a bit sportier suspension and brakes. If they
did that that would be one hell of a car!

Depends on which parts you need. My BIL has a Sedona that had a problem
with the TPS. There are 4 different ones listed for the engine he has
and NONE of them are the one that is actually on it. The drive be wire
system on it had a bad pedal sensor last year and that thing was another
item that was listed but wrong.

Where I live parts for koreans are easier to get.
the parts $$$ is an issue also. Honda and subaru charge ungodly sums
for
their replacement bins (as they do for their cars). Guess how popular
hyundais and kias around here
despite people not being as obsessed with cost/value ratio as they are
in the states.
Not that there is anything wrong with looking for a good value.

Frankly I liked my brother's 1995 sonata a whole lot better than US
spongy-brakes 2005 accord
of my sister in law a whole lot better. At least some korean had some
brains to put
a sport/economy switch to get the slush out of the slushbox and there
was some sport present in that
car (something that I was looking high and low for in accord and could
not find a trace of)

for a V6 fuel economy was not as bad. Heck, you'd think people would
read some car rags for
the real world mileage figures before plunking some cash for a new
car. But hey, "lets do some class-action
to get some cash" (TM) mentality never dies over the pond.

The *city* mileage on my new Accord is wildly overstated.

Highway and even combined mileage seems about right.

Apparently all the vendors have learned some new trick this year and
are inflating their figures crazily. The unavoidable factors are the
gross weight of the car, the displacement and horsepower of the
engine, and how hard you lead-foot it. Control for those factors and
the difference from company to company on competative models is likely
to be modest, 10-20% or so.
