Default Is anyone afraid of quality control issues with the K900/Hyundai/Kia?

I've been reading about heads rolling at Hyundai after them having to recall over a million vehicles this year. Is anyone afraid of quality control issues buying a Hyundai or a Kia? You'd hope they wouldn't let any problems happen with their new flagship, but it seems like they aren't exactly the best at controlling these types of issues.

In all fairness no business deliberately lets problems happen. Shouldn't really matter with the quoris, not too many are going to be sold

Which Hyundai production plants were these vehicles coming from?
It could be an issue with poor quality control at a few of them, or all.

I am always concerned with these issues, it doesn't matter what company I am buying from. You don't know what will happen after you buy the vehicle. They could all catch fire, or have their steering wheels come off. Who knows!?

Since the K900 will be a more low volume model it shouldn't have quite the same risk of problems though. So that makes me less worried.

someone not caught in the image game... Someone who buys their vehicles outright...

I feel that the longer the warranty the more problems you should expect to face... Its makeup for an ugly face..
