2008 Hyundai Sonata GLS from North America
None, despite this being purchased used.
This is a previous rental car and I paid 62% of what I would have paid for if I got a brand new one. Spacious, very nice ride and it handles well. Fuel economy is good on freeway. I am able to get 5.9L/100KM, driving at 105 KM/hr (60 mph). The cloth they used for the seats aren't very good quality and so is some of the plastic. You should be able to get a 1 to 2 year old one with a very good price as the North American car rental companies are releasing them to the market.
I expect Hyundais' future resale values to go up as the company's products are improving. They are currently in the same position as Toyota in the 1970s, consumers will soon realize their quality and be willing to pay for more.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It is 2017, and I am now doing an update on this car. Currently I have 171,000 km on this car.
Here are the problems I have encountered over the years.
2010, the sun visor was broken. I purchased one on eBay and replaced it.
2011, one of the power seat controllers is not functioning well, but I can live with it instead of spending a few hundred dollars to fix it.
2014, check engine light came on and disappeared.
2014, airbag light came on, again I ignored it.
2014, fuel pump failed, had to replace it. Major $$$$.
2017, oil pan leaked, replaced.
2017, alternator failure, replaced.
Update: 2018, power window regulator replaced.
