Hyundai Motor Company, a South Korean car manufacturer founded in 1967, is now the third largest vehicle manufacturer in the world.
In its early day, especially in its attempts to capture the North American market, cost cutting left Hyundai cars with a reputation for unreliability. However, the company focused on improving the quality of its cars as well as investing in research. Nowadays it has a completely different reputation.
According to the latest J.D. Power Survey, the Hyundai was the most reliable brand, with the least faults per 100 vehicles tested, coming in front of Suzuki, and its part-owned unit Kia Motors.
So, in the shortest possible terms: Hyundai cars, especially the modern ones are very reliable. According to various reports and surveys over the last couple of years, Hyundai, in terms of frequency of repairs and overall repair costs, comes in first and second place respectively among a plethora of vehicles covered by the surveys.
And this is not only the case in the United States. Hyundai has been the most frequently recommended by the UK’s Telegraph, and has ranked the highest in its reliability rating.
