  4. JD Power Says Korean Cars Beat US and Europe in Quality! Sources: https://www.wired.com/story/jd-power-korean-cars-beat-us-europe-quality/ Ask the average car buyer who makes the most reliable vehicles, and they’ll likely start with Japanese automakers, followed by the Germans and the Americans, and ending with the Koreans. Going by the results of this year’s JD Power Initial Quality Survey, though, that’s all wrong. “It’s almost the complete reverse,” says Dave Sargent, who oversees Power's vehicle quality research. The change in fortunes rides largely on how automakers have handled two big technological trends: proliferating infotainment screens and advanced driver assistance features. The ranking, based on the number of problems owners of new vehicles report in the first three months, puts Genesis, Hyundai’s luxury brand, in the number one spot, with 63 problems per 100 vehicles. Kia and Hyundai are right behind, making for an all-Korean top three. The next three slots go to the Americans—Ford, Lincoln, Chevrolet—with Lexus and Toyota after them. All these brands score better than the industry average of 93 problems per 100 vehicles. Below that bar, you’ll find the Europeans, including Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW, Volvo, and Volkswagen. In the bottom two spots are Land Rover and Jaguar. A spokesman for those two brands, both owned by India’s Tata Motors, said that the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto has reduced complaints around infotainment issues, and that it's working to improve those scores. A Mercedes-Benz representative notes that this JD Power survey "doesn’t reflect the total ownership experience," but that it's helpful for "finetuning" its work. The results don’t surprise Sargent. “This is not a one-year phenomenon,” he says. The Korean automakers have consistently improved their cars’ quality in recent years, especially around the infotainment systems that offer a combination of navigation, music, and voice calling features. The Korean manufacturers offer relatively simple systems that do the basics well, even if they skimp on next-generation ideas like gesture controls. That matches Consumer Reports’ most recent infotainment system ranking, which listed Genesis, Hyundai, and Kia among its favorites. It gave the top score to Tesla, which JD Power doesn’t include in its rankings, due to a lack of data. The “problems” that consumers report tend to fall into two buckets. Some are defects that affect individual cars, like a headlamp that goes out. Others are related to the design of a vehicle, like a hard-to-use voice recognition system for doing things like placing calls and set navigation destinations. Today’s cars have far fewer defects than their predecessors did a decade ago, Sargent says, and mass manufacturers match the luxury brands on that count. So drivers are more focused on the things that bug them about their vehicles. That exposes the luxury automakers to criticism, Sargent says, because they offer more features that may not work perfectly or be easy to understand. This year’s survey found a small increase in what Sargent calls “traditional problems” like bad paint jobs and brake and suspension noises. That may be because, as car sales have slowed, vehicles are spending more time in the elements before going home with a customer—an effect known as “lot rot.” While infotainment systems are responsible for more problems than any other category, they’re also where automakers made the biggest overall improvement since 2018. Industry-wide, the survey says, the systems are getting less glitchy and easier to use. The new bad boy looks to be driver assistance systems, which for JD Power includes things like basic cruise control, lane departure warnings, and “semiautonomous” systems like Cadillac Super Cruise. As these features become more prevalent, more consumers are having trouble understanding how they work, or criticizing when they do and don’t intervene. And yes, studies show that drivers in the US and Europe often overestimate what their “semiautonomous” cars can do—setting them up for disappointment. Overall, Sargent says, the encouraging thing is just how reliable new cars are these days. The 2019 industry average of 93 problems per 100 vehicles represents a 14 percent drop over the 2009 figure. Volvo, he notes, is in 28th place, out of 32. “I drive a Volvo,” he says. “I love it.”

  6. The 2020 Kia Telluride Three-Row SUV Is Big, Boxy, and Bold https://www.caranddriver.com/news/2020-kia-telluride-three-row-suv-photos-info Kia is going big with its new Telluride three-row SUV, both literally and figuratively. It will be the biggest crossover in Kia’s lineup, positioned above the (also three-row) Sorento. Upon this larger canvas Kia has painted bold styling that deviates little from that of the bold Telluride concept car from a few years ago. Final details are forthcoming, but Kia says the Telluride is several inches longer and wider than the Sorento. It’ll hold up to eight people, while the Sorento can only hold seven between its two front seats, three-across second-row bench, and its admittedly tight two-place third-row seat. That means you can expect the Telluride's third row to accommodate three humans, although don't rule out a seven-seat version with captain's chairs in the second row. Beyond its extra size, the Telluride also is far more distinctive than the Sorento, with interesting head- and taillight designs and a boxy, truck-like silhouette. Disregard a few of the custom off-road-y bits seen on this particular vehicle—including all-terrain tires, beefy bumpers, an intake snorkel, a roof rack, and a hatch-mounted spare tire—as it’s simply a modified version of the production car debuting at New York Fashion Week. The Kia's styling is so truck-like and bold, in fact, that you could be forgiven for thinking it's an old-school, body-on-frame SUV along the lines of Chevrolet's Tahoe or GMC's Yukon. Nonetheless, we suspect that the Telluride rides on a front-wheel-drive-based unibody platform, likely one that will be shared with a new three-row Hyundai SUV rumored to be called the Palisade. That it will be built at the same Georgia plant where Kia assembles the unibody Sorento serves as more evidence against the idea that this SUV is body-on-frame like the Borrego SUV that Kia sold for a brief while about ten years ago. Kia says the Telluride will use a V-6 engine but offers no specifics beyond that, leaving us guessing as to whether it'll be the same naturally aspirated 3.3-liter found in the Sorento or possibly a more powerful twin-turbocharged version of the same engine like that in the Stinger. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive seem like sure bets, at least. Inside, the Fashion Week–ified Telluride boasts a few unique bits of trim, including special leather and wood trim that won’t see production. Otherwise, the cabin isn’t likely to change all that much before it goes on sale early next year. Some spy pictures.

    2019 Hyundai Veloster

    New 3 door car is here. http://www.motortrend.com/news/2019-hyundai-veloster-priced/ Hyundai has released pricing for the 2019 Veloster, with the base model equipped with the standard six-speed manual starting at $19,385 including destination. The Veloster Turbo starts at $23,785 for the R-Spec trim, which comes only with the manual. All Veloster models now come with an independent suspension setup all around. Standard equipment on the base Veloster includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a rearview camera and two USB ports. Moving up to the Premium grade adds 18-inch alloy wheels, a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen, heated front seats, a 4.2-inch instrument cluster display, a sunroof, an eight-speaker Infinity audio system, blind spot warning, automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The base Veloster and Veloster Premium are powered by a 2.0-liter I-4 with 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque paired to either a six-speed manual or for an extra $1,000, a six-speed automatic. EPA fuel economy ratings are 25/33 mpg city/highway for the stick and 27/34 mpg for the automatic. Moving up to the Veloster Turbo R-Spec gets you all the standard features from the Veloster Premium and builds on it with high beam assist and LED low beam headlights but loses the sunroof and blind spot warning. Moving up to the Turbo model with the optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic does give you back those features plus rear cross-traffic alert and lumbar adjustment for the driver seat. The range-topping turbo Ultimate is the only one available with a two-tone roof, full leather upholstery, a head-up display, built-in navigation, and adaptive cruise control if yo opt for the automatic. The most expensive Veloster model, the automatic-equipped Turbo Ultimate, rings in at $29,035. Turbo variants come with their own unique suspension and steering calibrations, and an active sound enhancer that pipes in engine sounds through the speakers. Manual-equipped Turbo models comes standard with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 summer performance tires while automatic-equipped ones make do with all-season rubber. Under the hood of the Veloster Turbo is an updated 1.6-liter turbo-four with 201 hp and 195 lb-ft, and an overboost feature that increases torque to 202 lb-ft for a short time. EPA fuel economy ratings for the Veloster Turbo are 26/33 mpg with the six-speed manual and 28/34 mpg with the automatic. Hyundai hasn’t released pricing for the range-topping Veloster N yet, which is expected to arrive before the end of 2018. Like the i30N in other markets, the Veloster N is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-four with up to 275 hp and 260 lb-ft. It comes exclusively with a six-speed manual with automatic rev matching. Adaptive dampers also come standard and an optional Performance package adds an electronically controlled mechanical limited-slip differential and 19-inch alloy wheels shod in Pirelli P-Zero summer performance tires specific to Hyundai’s N cars.

    2018 Lafesta

    I believe when you first saw the title, you would have thought of this: And for those following closely on JDM, maybe this too: Or if you someone that know Italian, and very hungry now, Sorry but you are totally way off. Think about it, why would I start this thread under the Korean Talk folder if it is a Japanese or Italian? Now, I am refering to this sexy sport back (which certainly ressemble the new Honda FC Civic in some angles)... Hyundai Lafesta (currently only available in China) Hyundai is expanding its presence in China with a new sedan developed exclusively for this market and called LAFESTA (Italian for Festival). Unveiled at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show recently, it debuts the brand’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design philosophy, which was announced at the Geneva Motor Show, in March. The new Lafesta, "embraces the growing younger generation," says Hyundai. The small sedan embodies Hyundai’s new design approach of "Sensuous Sportiness" with an aggressive fascia highlighted by a version of Hyundai’s corporate Cascading grille, sleek headlights, LED daytime running lights, and gloss black features. One can see that some of the key styling features of the Hyundai LAFESTA include a large grille at the front with chrome trim, curvy lines across the bonnet and lower side of the doors and a sloping roofline behind the C pillars. That’s kind of similar to the latest Santa Fe, but on a deeper scale. “Building on our long history of creating distinctive and sporty character in vehicles, we will create a new era for Hyundai design. ‘Sensuous Sportiness’, the new theme for Hyundai design reflects our goal to build a beloved brand by creating vehicles with heightened emotional value”, commented Hyundai Styling’s chief, SangYup Lee. Its cabin is described as being “spacious” and “driver-focused”, equipped with quality materials, new technology and numerous driving assistance systems. The new Hyundai LAFESTA will go on sale in China in the fourth quarter of 2018, and the automaker promises to detail it after its official launch. Power comes from a turbocharged 1.6-liter GDi engine, which could be shared with the Kona Premium GT. It’s married to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, just like the one in the subcompact SUV, where it develops 177PS (175hp / 131kW) and 265Nm (195lb-ft) of torque.

  10. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-2865342/Korean-Air-executive-kicks-flight-attendant-plane-moments-New-York-failing-serve-nuts-properly.html An executive for Korean Air is facing investigation after she reportedly delayed a flight because a member of the cabin crew didn't serve her nuts properly. The flight was was about to take off from New York's JFK Airport when Korean Air's vice-chairman Cho Yang-ho had a flight attendant removed from plane for failing to offer her a packet of macadamia nuts. South Korean news service Yonhap reports that, when prompted, the attendant gave the daughter of the airline's chief executive Cho Yang-ho macadamia nuts in a bag, and not on a plate as formal business class procedure dictates. For that oversight, Cho, who also goes by her English name Heather, reportedly yelled at the cabin crew member and ordered her off the plane as it was readying to depart JFK Airport for Incheon, near Seoul. The South Korean Government is looking into the executive's on-the-spot disciplinary action against the attendant, who hasn't been named. The plane was already in the process of being taxied to the runway but had to return to the passenger terminal, with the whole saga delaying the New York-bound plane's take-off by 11 minutes, it was confirmed by the airline. However, Korean Air also confirmed that the decision to expel the crew chief had been made in consultation with the pilot. A Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport official, who spoke to Yonhap on the condition of anonymity, said there will be a government investigation into the incident. Law dictates that the cabin crew is under the orders of the captain while on a flight. 'The official explained: ''Even if she is the vice president of the airline, she was one of passengers and should have been treated as one. 'The lesson for the flight attendant could have been given after returning to South Korea.'

  13. Hey guys, I have tested a few car, kia caren, hyundai tucson, subaru forester, nissan x trail, toyota wish, grand piccasso, peugeot 5008, the japanese aircon is always the coldest, especially toyota.Anyone know why?
  14. SQ16 was accelerating for takeoff at 120km/h when a Korean Air Airbus plane KE929 unexpectedly taxied onto the runway. SQ16 did an emergency braking following instructions that were received from air traffic control, damaging its tyres. The two planes were about 1.7km apart when both came to a complete stop, SQ16's departure was delayed for about 19 hours as the plane's tyres had to be replaced. KE929, meanwhile, was diverted back to the apron and took off about two hours after the incident. Its pilots were said to have ignored earlier instructions from the air traffic controller. South Korea's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport is investigating and is expected to release its report in 2 to 3 weeks. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/planes-landing-gear-damaged-during-7928326 http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/singapore-airlines-plane-in-near-collision-at-south-koreas-incheon-airport
  15. After years of setting the standard for quality and reliability, Japanese brand autos have dropped below the industry average, according to a new report by J.D. Power and Associates. The latest Initial Quality Study, which ranks brands based on consumer surveys after owning a vehicle for three months, shows the collective results of Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Subaru are not keeping pace with the industry as a whole and the Korean auto brands, in particular. "It's not that the Japanese models are all getting worse, but this shows they are not improving as fast as their competitors," said Renee Stephens, vice president of U.S. automotive quality at J.D. Power. "This is a clear shift in the quality landscape." http://www.cnbc.com/id/102766497

  21. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/04/world/asia/2-south-korean-soldiers-die-in-anti-captivity-training.html?_r=0 SEOUL, South Korea — Two South Korean soldiers died late Tuesday during an exercise meant to prepare them for capture by the enemy, military officials said Wednesday. The apparent cause was suffocation, they said. The two soldiers were staff sergeants in a special forces unit based in Jeungpyeong, about 60 miles southeast of Seoul, according to a spokesman for their unit, who briefed reporters on the condition that he not be identified. The soldiers’ full names were not released. The spokesman said they were both in their early 20s. The training exercise, conducted at the base, was meant to teach the soldiers to endure captivity should they be taken prisoner, the spokesman said. The soldiers were required to kneel with hoods over their heads and their hands tied behind their backs. Trainers realized the exercise was going wrong when another soldier, who was later hospitalized, screamed and flailed his legs, the spokesman said. He said the military was investigating the deaths, with a particular focus on whether the training had been properly supervised. The incident occurred at a time when the South Korean military was already facing public anger over the beating death of a private following weeks of abuse from fellow soldiers. Homicide charges were filed this week against four soldiers in the private’s unit, who initially had faced lesser charges. The army chief of staff resigned over public criticism that the military tried to cover up the abuse the private suffered. South Korea maintains a military of 650,000 people, most of them conscripts, as a bulwark against North Korea, with which it has technically been at war since 1950. Reminds me of the dunking incident conducted by our SAF back in 2003.......
