    Hyundai refers to a group of companies and related organizations founded by Chung Ju-yung in South Korea. The first Hyundai company was founded in 1947 as a construction company, and the Hyundai Group eventually became South Korea's largest conglomerate company (chaebol).

    The most well-known Hyundai organization is the Hyundai Motor Company, the world's 6th largest automaker. Hyundai Heavy Industries is the world's largest shipbuilder, and Hynix is a top semiconductor producer. Other companies currently or formerly controlled by members of Chung's extended family may be loosely referred to as a part of the Hyundai chaebol.

    The Hyundai Group underwent massive restructuring following the 1997 East Asian financial crisis and the founder's death in 2001. Today, many companies bearing the Hyundai name are legally unrelated, with each company having a different chairman. Former components include Hyundai Group, Hyundai Kia Automotive Group, Hyundai Department Store Group, Hyundai Heavy Industries Group, and Hyundai Development Group. After the separation, Hyundai Group focuses on elevators, container services, and tourism to Mount Kumgang.

    JD Power ranks Hyundai as the 3rd best car in initial quality beating out Toyota. The company has made a remarkable turn around since 1999 and has almost reached the top of the mountain. I just bought a Hyundai Azera last month and absolutely love the car. People like to mention depreciation in posts about Hyundai, but to date there's is no worse then American cars and as their reputation continues to flourish expect it to get closer to Honda and Toyota levels by 2010.

    Hyundai is a company from Korea. They make excellent cars. I've owned three, including one while I lived in Korea. I still have two and I could not bring the Korean specification Hyundai from Korea.

    Interestingly, Hyundai Sonata's are manufactured in Alabama, USA so you are supporting the USA job market AND getting a superior car.

    They also build trailers and the heavy duty cranes used in the steel and ship industry. No matter what people say about Hyundai I will stand by mine 100%.
