    I would rank my new 2014 Elantra GT pretty high. It seems Hyundai is listening to customers, since one of the biggest complaints about the 2013 was performance. The new 2.0L (mine has manual transmission) seems to be just right for this car. It's also nice they changed the Style package, which now includes leather seats, sportier suspension and LED taillights. It isn't perfect, but it's a solid 9+.

    After reading the articles and the results of the 3 JD Power surveys: Initial Quality, Appeal and Dependability survey The results are surprisingly positive for GM.

    Combining the winners of each category in the 3 surveys the results are as follows:

    MB: 1 winner

    VW-Audi, Mini-BMW, Mazda, & Porsche: 3 winners each

    Nissan-Inf: 4 winners

    Chrysler, & Ford: 5 each

    Kia-Hyundai: 7

    Honda-Acura: 8

    Toy-Lex-Scion: 9

    GM: 15

    The 2014 went to the larger motor, which is needed. Manual will increase your MPG and my guess is you have fewer gadgets in the vehicle (that's less to break down). Is JD Powers independent like Consumer Reports? Many moons ago, I learned Motor Trend and Car and Driver were not neutral but this may have changed.
