The original Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company was founded in 1947 in Seoul, South Korea by Chung Ju Yung. Twenty years later, the Hyundai Motor Company came into making their own version of the Ford Cortina available in the U.S. By 1974 with the help of a team of former British Leyland experts. The first Hyundai vehicle built and designed by the company, the Pony, hit the markets in Canada, but not the U.S. due to failure to meet emission standards. Whether you own an original Pony or the latest Genesis, a Hyundai service manual can provide you with a wealth of information.
The first Hyundai Excel arrived on the shores of the U.S. in 1986 with a price tag of only $4995.00 in a market where affordable new cars were badly needed. It was quickly named by Fortune Magazine as ""Best New Product #10."" To make things interesting, the Excel was offered with four different engines and multiple versions. To make sure you have the information you need at hand to keep your vehicle running, you can find it all in a quality Hyundai repair manual. If you own an older Hyundai, you may find this is the only place you are likely to find the information you need.
The Excel engines were supplied by Mitsubishi Motors in Japan, but by 1993 they were designing and building their own engines and transmissions, giving the company the ability to build every component in their vehicles. The best way to find your way through the changes and advances in technology is for you to have a Hyundai service manual available. Inside you will find service and repair instructions along with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) part numbers to help ensure your work goes smoothly.
Today, Hyundai has manufacturing facilities all over the world in countries like the U.S., Brazil, China, Russia, India, Turkey, and several others. They employ over 80,000 people around the globe and own their South Korean competitor Kia. From the entry-level Hyundai Accent to the sporty Veloster, the best way to keep your vehicle in optimum running condition for as long as you own it is to have a top-quality Hyundai repair manual available for use whenever you need it. This will help ensure that not only are you doing the job right, but help you with parts lists, diagrams, and images to make it easier for you to do.
