I know the Hyundai of old has had issues over the years. I keep reading that they're much improved over the last few years. I see their new Ioniq has exceptionally good reliability ratings on Consumer Reports. They have very few reported problems, though they've only got two years worth listed. I also see that the Ioniq uses an Aisin transmission. I've read that they've solved carbon buildup from GDI by holding the intake valves open longer, permitting some fuel to escape and clean the valves --- that their extra-high pressure injection is supposed to keep fuel off the walls of the cylinder to reduce oil dilution. I generally drive my cars until they die, and the lifetime battery warranty seems like a great deal if only the car will hold together for 20 years. It seems like a big risk to buy one given Hyundai's history, but with everyone saying Toyota and Honda are falling and Hyundai is rising, I don't know where the bigger risk lies. What's the communities opinion on these things? Do you guys think an Ioniq has a high probability of making it to 20 years without bankrupting me?

Everyone "who" is saying Toyota is falling? There is no way a Hyundai is going to perform for 20-yrs. On the other hand, I still own the 1991 Toyota I bought new. That would be 29-years. And my 1998 Toyota just turned 22-yrs.-old. Just stick w/ Toyota. Consumer Reports is paid slosh.
