Korean cars has made lots of improvements over the recent years.

They have 6 airbags and tons of features built in as compared to some other makes which have the most basic features with it's price marked up.

9 years back when I bought my Avante, I was surprised that the wiper has this auto feature which automatically slow down when I stop at junctions. Today, my new Jap car doesn't have this feature and comes with a basic radio set/music player (ok, mine is just a B&B car )

But the FC on my new car is way better than Avante due to the thin metal sheets. My Avante survived chain collision on 2 occasions and no damages on both incidents, and that really speaks a lots about their metal; hence their heavy weight and poor FC.

Reason I made a switch coz I have been driving Korean cars for the past 14 cars; a Getz followed by Avante, so decided to try a Jap model due to its better FC

Anyway, I'm not stirring up a debate between the difference make/model. Each model has its own merits and lacks; liked KIA7200 has said, no car is perfect, so depends if the user can accept them.


Agree.
You only own 2 Hyundai.
I own 2 Hyundai and 1 Kia before.Same like you.Time to change so choose jap.
So far no problem for my 3 Korean car.Quite robust.

Elantra is really one of the best deal in town now...

Cheap, reliable n good feature. Only thing is the fc still got room for improvement

But sure got some Toyota loyalist jokers will come in n say bad things abt Korea cars
If you are on 2018 model (with AMS feature). The fc is better then same in the class bas on LTA spec.

NB, check you battery negatibe terminal, it has additional sensor installed to ECU.

mz3 interior is small. Also, the Q85 battery is a killer in term of expenses. Most driver report life span of around 14 to 18 months. Although you can get first replacement at agent at 50% discount.

Yes mz3 interior is not as big as some sedan cars but is good enough for a family of 4.

I don't understand why a battery can be a killer? AD is selling $300++ but outside is selling ard $180+- jap high cap battery. The fc can break even easily. The most 10yrs u can less than 10yrs and 1500cc vs 1600cc car road tax diff easily break even.

If u nv own a mazda car please don't anyhow talk. U know what is worse

A kuku who bought a Thaiyota with price diff of $10-30k excluding interest diff compare to Korea or mij cars with little features n boring drive plus design, think only this Thai car is the only reliable car in this universe but worry abt the expensive Batt n svc.

Sweet! haha
Don’t worry about the drop (if any).
Focus on what you’ve got!

Was it S or Elite?
