KIA and Hyundai vehicles have come a long way. They make a very good product now. I have owned a 2010 Hyundai Sonata for 4 years. That vehicle was very reliable and easy to maintain. I traded it in for a Equus, I am even more satisfied now. This car is very similiar to a 08-12 Lexus LS430. I am a Lexus fan as well but I believe the Hyundai is a better value. My Equus is the best car I ever owned! I love it! It turns heads everywhere I go. People are amazed by this car. I can't think of one bad thing about this car. The only thing I wished it had was a Jukebox for my music but that is a very minor complaint. I recommend this vehicle if you want reliable and comfortable transportation.
