Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This song is not about me, I drive Japanese!!
The check engine light's on, and the brake fluid's gone
And I'm trying to fix my Hyundai
And it's pointless I know, cause the dealer is closed
And I never would get what I came for
Ooh, ooh, so I'm trying to fix my Hyundai

There's a warantee sold, "It's all covered" i'm told
But you know sometimes words have two meanings.
The odometers wrong and the headlights are on
Even though I removed the battery
Ooh, and it drives me crazy,
Ooh, and it drives me crazy.

(Spoken: What am I talking about, it doesn't drive me anywhere!)

There's a smell that I get when I open the hood,
And it could be cause oil has been leaking.
ANd behind the car's tail, I can see a big trail,
And the laughter of those who stand looking.
Ooh, should have bought a Honda
Ooh, should have bought a Honda

So I stop for the day, if I wait for monday
Then the dealer will lead me to reason.
So I rise before dawn but the line is so long
And once more there's the onlookers laughter.

If there's a clanking in your engine, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring loose and it's rattling.
Yes, there are screws loose on the dashboard, this cars a real turd
There's still time to trade the car you're in.
Ohhh, but I'm upside down

And for the future I should tell you, in case you don't know,
The radio get's stuck on AM,
Dear me, now I can hear the air go, and did you know
This car runs better with a strong tail wind.

And as we struggle down the road
When it's in third it barely goes
There's a toyota and I know
I should have bought, I should have known
And everything just turns to rust
A ford just left me in his dust
An idea came to me at last.
To improve pickup, build a MAST!
ANd then she stops and starts to roll

And once more I try to fix my Hyundai

I also have a song on this site regarding Hyundais. It is Crappy Hyundai, a parody of The Bangles' (and Prince's) Manic Monday). Great job

Buy American. Rice cars are difficult to deal with. My Son and daughter both have them. One waited 3 months for parts. Most warrentys on imports, won't cover something as simple as a battery. I never had any such problems with my American Car. I know that they can be depenable transport with good maitenance. If you can get the parts...right?

Actually, Warranties on Japanese cars are better than American Warranties. Trust me, I have both. I would prefer to pay for a battery than have the warranty expire after 3 years. Japanese cars now come with 5/60 warranty's and free roadside assistance. Besides, the Japanese cars don't break down anyway. Not just my opinion, also the opinion of consumer reports, JD Power, Intellichoice, etc.

No Kidding, Like I said, they can be very dependable with good maitenace. I've had some bad luck with my son's car. It wen't to the dealer for a month because of parts problems. The dealer would'nt offer a rental or a loaner. It was under full warrenty. The only Honda I've ever owned was a CBX Motorcycle
