For how many times you have brought the Golf up- it sounds like you're trying to rationalize your purchase.

There is no such thing as a 2009 Genesis Coupe.

Although appealing to the eye, It looks like a Mercedes E class, a BMW 7 series and a Lexus did a three way. Not impressed!
I think if any group should be sympathetic to Hyundai it should be GM fans. You say you can't get past memories of awful products from years ago, yet how frustrating is it when people say the same thing about GM? Lets be honest here, GM had decades of poor products, poor management, poor quality, and poor reliability. Those days are behind them, and Hyundai is doing the same thing. Far be it from us to ignore another brand that has done the same thing our favorite brand has done. So lets celebrate rising from past mistakes and moving on to current greatness. Perhaps a joint win for the Camaro and Genesis in recognition of these parallel paths?

You have a very valid point. Hyundai has put similar problems that used to plague GM behind them, which is of course good for the consumer.

Here's the thing, and I open myself to flaming: I don't live and work in Korea, Japan, or Europe. So while I can recognize a good vehicle from those areas, I have no reason or desire to "celebrate" it.

Let them win the Korean Car of the Year award...besides, I personally think the 2009 Genesis was enough recognition of their improvements. Let someone else get it, this year
