Here you go Dolt. This is the 5 year, cost to own comparison between the Volt and the Elantra. This is another way of looking at the price of a car.
Without the credit factored in. This is the Volt

This is the Elantra

Now ... and I know you hate to do this ... factor in the credit, and I am $2,000 ahead of you.
The 2013's will be $3,500 ahead of you as they get the additional CA credit of $1,500.
Kiplinger, yahoo autos, they all disagree with you Dolt. You elantra is an expensive tin can.
3800 lbs compared to 2700 lbs. Tin can!
Wow that hundee is not very competitive.

I was referring to the talking clowns in society as a general group, not the one here.

Yes

"Hyundai and Kia overstated the estimated fuel economy on more than 900,000 economy U.S. vehicles sold over the past two years and will compensate owners for the lies and faulty claims, the companies said today.

The South Korean partners will also lower the fuel-economy estimates on most of their 2012 and 2013 economy models"

That would be Hyundai, but yes, they as well as Ford Fusion and C-Max are under an EPA review.

I donít think hunday is part of this. They already went through the investigation, were sued, and Lang said weíre sorry.

Hyundai was investigated by the EPA for it's cars not meeting their MPG estimates, judged guilty and fined accordingly. Ford is now being investigated by the EPA for it's cars not meeting their MPG estimates and is awaiting the result of the investigation.

How is it different? Did Ford lie about it's EPA numbers? Or did the printers of it's window stickers make a slight mistake?

Actually, Hyundai agreed to settle multiple lawsuits against it that were filed as a result of the findings by the EPA that they mistated their MPG ratings. Cost them alot of money.
Ford's issue with their Fusion and C-Max cars is still being investigated by the EPA.

I still can't believe hunday lied to all those people. They should've bought a Volt and saved money.

Yeah that's a shame they would do something like that. What do you think's going to happen to Ford if it turns out they did the same thing?

They didnít do the same thing. If you were a car guy you would know that. Hunday are proven liars.

The reason almost every single Volt owner loves his or her car ..... the car exceeds the EPA and GM estimates. By quite a lot. GM knew they low balling it. Smart move.

Can't stand being proved wrong ... eh? That's two groups that compare cost of ownership of cars that put the Volt way ahead of a tin can Hyundai.

By the way .... it's Analyst. I can see you are not a guuuud spelller.

And you can laugh all you want. As I told other haters, if it relieves the pain of the pump, go ahead. Some people need to hate to feel better. Me ... I like putting money in my stock accounts.

I get to save over $1,000 a year and then watch it grow. You get to put it in your tank and watch it ...... go.

Hahahahhaha

Per Kelly Blue Book:

Hyundai Sonata 5 year cost of ownership:
$38,500

Chevy Volt 5 year cost of ownership:
$40,629
- 7,500 credit
----------
$33,129

http://www.kbb.com/car-news/all-the-latest/20...

Even without the credit, the Volt almost made up the difference even though the sticker for the Volt would be $22,000 more than the Sonata. It makes up $20,000 in 5 years!!! And the Hyundai is a tin can.

What an amazing car.
