I thought that the 5yr/60K bumper-to-bumper warranty was not transferrable, and that only the 10 year/100K powertrain could be transferred to another owner?
I think there many be a lot of fine print involved in the warranty details like the original owner being required to follow the recommended maintenance schedule at a Hyundai/Kia dealership--or else it voids the warranty.
Also, which particular Hyundai and Kia models are recommended?

It's the other way around. The 10/100 powertrain is only for the first owner. The 5/50 bumper-to-bumper is transferable.

With out a doubt Hyundai. With all the safety features and the warranty you can't miss.

All late model Hyundais /Kias 2006 and above are terrific value.But the base Accent and Rio ,, I think ,do not have the ABS ,though.
A used 06-07 Hyundai Sonata is a great bargain,, a good sized sedan,good reliability and fuel economy!!

GM has a 100K warranty that is transferable. And GM cars depreciate almost as quickly as Hyundais.

Yes, used Hyundais can be a great value because of the horrible resale values! Just don't buy a new one unless you plan to keep it a very long time!

What are repair and maintenance costs like on Hyundais or Kias?
Are these costs more expensive compared to other imports or domestic cars?
And are there problems finding mechanics (other than Hyundai dealerships) who know how to fix Hyundais/Kias?

The G20 is the Infiniti version of the Nissan Sentra.
Primera, actually - a somewhat larger FWD platform, available in Europe as a Nissan. I had both an older Sentra and and a G20 (both manual), and the drives could not have been compared (G20 much nicer.)
