The rise of Hyundai and Kia, and Ford's surge to the top. Whether we're talking about resale values, reliability, quality, perceived quality, or any number of other qualifications, Hyundai and Kia are on the rise. And Ford's been doing a great job improving its products for many years in a row, so it was about time the consumer (and media) tide started to change. Looking at sales data and market share, Hyundai and Kia were deemed the most recession-proof, while just recently we reported that Honda and Ford lead in customer retention while Kia was most improved. There's no doubt Toyota lost some of its halo this year, but the recalls likely weren't entirely to blame. Take a look at excellent products like the 2011 Ford Explorer, 2011 Hyundai Sonata, and 2011 Kia Optima and you'll see why.
