The dealer finally equipped a loaner with a trailer hitch and brake controller so he could go camping. Needless to say, he sold that Hyundai and bought a Highlander.


Enlarge the picture. It says "Service Vehicle" on the side.

The Koreans seem to be quite weak on aftersales support. Korean major appliances like Samsung, LG, you flat can not get parts for, so when that controller board hiccups, boom, the $2000 fancy washing machine is DOA.
