WTF are you talking about? You clearly have some sort of complex bringing race and culture into this. This is about COMPANIES which have been founded in different geographical locations. I'm not German, and I am American, and I think American companies and workers within those companies have a long history of making crap, does this mean that I wish I was a German? LOL. Ridiculous. This isn't to mention, the designers and engineers of Hyundai/Kia are LARGELY not just Asian, but German, European, American, etc. A bunch of different people, representing a company which originates in a certain Country. German cars set the standard, Korean cars and Japanese cars follow by usually watering them down with second-rate imitations, namely Korean cars currently. They do have some of their own paths that they do lead in, Japanese cars with notorious reliability, Korean cars as well (the cars are far less complex than German cars so relatively they better be more reliable), but their claims to fames have largely been "looks like a Mercedes/BMW for half the price".
