Oh, the 5 English vowels a/e/i/o/u have different sound in different parts of the world la. Even the word "photography" can sound differently by different photographers. No, I am not an-tie-american. :D

It's a japanese brand and should be pronounced the japanese way.

Another example is mi-tsu-bi-shi, but u can hear pple pronounce it as mit-su-bi-si.

Actually, the company doesn't mind how it's being called... as long as people keep buying their products :bsmilie:

Here in Australia, Hyundai is pronounced huun-day. Cracks me up when I'm so used to calling it Hyun-dai.

It is the correct way(Korean) of pronouncing it actually.
'huun-day' or 'Hue-n-day',

I'm Australian and I pronounce it Hyun-dai. Never heard it pronounce the way you say.
Go ask a native Korean how they would pronounce it. There are quite a few of them in Australia so it shouldn't be too hard to do.
