Hyundai wasn't forced to do anything....
...People still prefer to buy Honda's over Hyundai. So therefore Hyundai dealers are FORCED to lowering prices below MSRP and selling for way cheaper than Honda's.
king of counteraction?

and in my view
that this is precisely the point. Its YOURE view. Not everyone's criteria is the same for a vehicle and both the sonata and accord cater to 2 different types...come on its obvious isn't it? at least if you been reading all of the pages and pages of this thread...
though looks don't matter much to people all the time, the Sonata's body design wins over any Accord built from any model year by Honda. Just does. Plain fact. And no, Hyundai isn't copying the Accord. There are so many design differences in the two cars that it's really a silly argument.
lets anazlye this, if looks don't matter, why does it matter if TO YOU the sonatas body design wins over any accords ever? Isn't that statement just an OPINION anyway?
Hyundai themselves admitted they benchmarked the accord. Heck all you need is eyes to know it, its not a big deal, as kdshapiro mentioned that 'copying' isn't neccesarily a bad thing, but even hyundaiphiles will have to admit that hyundai DID get a little more than just 'inspiration' from the accords design.
To through in my own little bit of .02, NO hyundai ever looked as good as the Cb7 (91-93) accord.
Without mentioning a Kia Optima in this thread. Even once
that was once.

If a person were to read the "problems" forums on every car on the market, they would throw their hands up in the air and buy nothing except maybe a bicycle.
Or they would rely on public transportation.

We seem to be done with Accord vs Sonata so let's wrap this up. If any of you would like to continue the debate about the manufacturers, please look into the discussions on the Auto News board.
